Clay, I can’t thank you enough for all you have done for me in this case!! If it wasn’t for you I would not have been compensated at all for the issues that I’ve had with my hip replacement surgeries. It was a real  pleasure working with you and you showed real compassion for my situation which meant a lot to me. Thank you so much for your compassion and expertise on my behalf!

Positive: Professionalism, Quality
I recently retained Clay to represent me. It was an atypical case which required him to look at things from different angles and pull in outside expertise. Clay did a great job of keeping me informed along the way, ensuring my understanding and alignment. I was very thankful for his guidance and help, and happy with the result of the case.

I hired Clay on a hip replacement/products liability case and he did a fine job. His work product was timely and quite good, and he quickly crafted an excellent resolution for the benefit of our client. I would not hesitate to again associate Clay in the future. He is smart, reliable, efficient and effective. Clay is the consummate lawyer’s lawyer. Thanks Clay!

Any legal circumstance requires in-depth and far reaching knowledge, diligent work ethic, persistence and compassion. I found ALL of these traits in HSH LLP and MOST especially in Clay Hodges. I recommend him with the highest regard for respecting me as a client and his several years of service in working hard on my behalf.

Clay, thank you sir for making a disheartening experience at least palatable, you and your staff were honest, caring and understanding through the entire process of my wife’s hip replacements, while monetary settlements never make the pain and suffering end, it sometimes is the only way people can fight back to right a wrong.

I was involved in a case for the faulty hip replacements. Clay Hodges represented me. I can’t say enough about how much he has helped me. Clay was able to win multiple settlements on my behalf with most of them being the maximum amount able to be awarded. These settlements allowed me to pay off so many of the debts that I had acquired due to the hip surgeries. With medical bills stacking up, along with being out of work multiple times for extended periods, there’s no way I could have gotten out of debt without these settlements. I thank Clay so much for what he has done for me. He and his firm are great to deal with and easy to reach and talk to. I didn’t want to be just another number in one of the gigantic law firms dealing with hundreds of these cases at the same time. Clay’s firm made you feel like you were dealing with a friend. So glad I chose to go with these guys.

I had one shot to even the score. I trusted Clay Hodges with my life. Mr. Hodges and his paralegal Denise were spot-on with every aspect of my case. Throughout the process, beginning to end, I felt confident I had made the right choice. I needed a team that would press my rights swiftly and with results. I feel that Mr. Hodges’s experience, persistence and character led to these maximum results. Trustworthiness, operational expertise and great results . . . I couldn’t  have asked for a better outcome.

Clay did a great job for me and my wife with our Depuy ASR hip case. I did not think I would receive any compensation for my injuries because several years had passed, but Clay stuck with me and with my case and we ended up getting a very good result. I am very pleased with Clay and how he helped me through years of litigation.

Mr. Clay Hodges is the best appellate attorney in this area. He took my case against one of the largest banks in Raleigh. He did his work and won my case.

My experience with Harris, Sarratt & Hodges is still ongoing and I can’t imagine being in better hands during this long drawn out legal process resulting from a faulty artificial hip that was implanted in me when I was only 42.

I want to say that your blogs are the best source of “laymen” explanations I have found. Sure appreciate you explaining in the way you do…and the 4 part piece with the PT post hip replacement came just weeks before my own THA. Please keep it up!

Clay’s blog was most useful in following my case, understanding  how the legal system works and what one can expect.

Your free downloadable book is awesome! Well done! Keep fighting for product accountability from these giant manufacturers.  They certainly have enough power on their sides so today, somehow, you have renewed  my faith in the hopes that compassionate attorneys like you are challenging the industry to do better with safer products. Keep fighting for the innocent people harmed by medical implants.

Plaintiffs in metal-on-metal hip (MoM) cases around the country owe thanks to Clay Hodges for his tireless advocacy on their behalf.  Early on, Clay posted an on-line brochure that served as a virtual guidebook for explaining the nature of the cases on how both attorneys and plaintiffs should think about it.  Since then, his articles and posts have provided timely and accurate updates about the litigation when often it was difficult to get reliable news for other sources. And he has done this not just for his clients but all MoM plaintiffs who have agonized to understand this case and what options they might have.   For all of us, he has provided far more than just information, but a genuine sense that someone really cares and is in our corner.

To other patients who are experiencing the [Depuy] Pinnacle hip problems.  Many as myself are so anxious to hear positive feeds.  Mr. Hodges was willing to take time to respond to my needs.  I sometimes wonder if we are lost from the loop, just a minute was so appreciated.   I feel that he would be at your side with support or to answer any questions.

Yours is the only site that went into any detail about the bellwether cases. And I’ve done a lot of research on this, your attorneys seem to have a better grasp on what’s going on and certainly disseminating information to plaintiffs and the general public. Thank you very much. And again, kudos on your site. It’s the best that I’ve read.
