Elbert & Cheryl Shaw

Compassion, honesty and integrity are the three words that come to mind when I think of Morris, King & Hodge, P.C. We will never forget how Joe King, Patty Hook and David Hodge showed us such kindness and at the same time such professionalism as they worked diligently on a horrifying and heartbreaking situation our family faced in 2011.

A parent’s worst nightmare became reality for us that year as our oldest child was killed by the senseless act of another person. A close friend recommended we speak with an attorney about the situation and recommended Joe King, Jr. Initially we were not sure we should because at the beginning we thought it was simply a traffic accident which had claimed our son.

We contacted Joe and made arrangements to meet him. From the very beginning you are put at ease by his calm demeanor and a realization that he truly does care about each and every situation he is involved with. It’s not just a job for him. It is a passion.

Never once in the year that we worked with the firm did they make us any unrealistic promises or guarantees. They work so hard on this and uncovered so many issues that pertain to the death of our son. We were amazed! In verbiage we could understand, Joe walked us through the laws of Alabama, and explained all about wrongful death suits and how each case is different.

When a request was made by the defendant in our case that we go to mediation to avoid a trial Joe walked us through exactly what would happen just as he had done through every phase of this. He kept in contact with us to keep us informed on what was happening and we knew he had our backs.

Even the mediator said that this was a superb team that represented us, the best prepared case he had seen in over 20 years of mediating.

There truly are no words to describe the appreciation and affection we have developed for these amazing folks at Morris, King & Hodge, P.C. Joe, David and all the other folks at Morris, King & Hodge, P.C., care and it shows in their work. They are honest, upfront and offer complete transparency… Now if only they would fly around in purple capes!
