Guest: Josh Hodges

Josh Hodges stands out as a lawyer due to his unique life experiences. He started his journey in a factory job right after high school, working with hot metal and liquid plastic, enduring long shifts and sleep-deprived days. His determination led him to attend classes at Miami Hamilton while working the night shift, eventually graduating with honors. This hands-on struggle has granted him a valuable perspective that resonates with his clients facing challenging situations. 

Josh's professional journey has also set him apart. Graduating Summa Cum Laude from Salmon P. Chase College of Law, he held leadership roles like Student Bar Association President and National Treasurer of NLLSA. His exceptional academic record secured him a position at a prestigious Midwestern law firm. There, he handled diverse cases, representing large corporations and governmental entities, particularly in civil litigation and personal injury defense. This experience is a rarity among local lawyers, offering a unique advantage to his clients. 

Building on his vast experiences, Josh returned to his hometown, Hamilton, Ohio, to establish his practice. Deeply rooted in the community, he lives with his family in a historic neighborhood. With unwavering dedication, he serves clients across Southwest Ohio, focusing on personal injury law. Beyond legal work, Josh actively supports local businesses and leaders through his engaging social media accounts, embodying his commitment to his beloved community.
