What People Have to Say About Sam Hodge

Should be a required seminar for all plaintiffs’ personal injury and defense/insurance lawyers. Will give a running start to evaluate medical records and medical reports.

Funny—better than the doctors that give dry and boring talks over our head!

I’ve actually lost count of how many depositions of doctors that I have attended that involved neck and back injuries, Professor Hodge provided the best overview of the anatomy of the spine that I’ve ever heard.
