J. Shane Hudson

Shane represents clients all over Georgia and, like his partner J.L. King, II is one of the most experienced civil trial lawyers in South Georgia under 40. Shane primarily represents catastrophically injured victims and the families of those who have been injured by the negligence of others.

Before co-founding Hudson King, Shane worked with one South Georgia’s premier law firms for nearly 7 years. Out of law school and before focusing on the representation of injured victims and the families of those victims, Shane worked for a short time with the insurance defense firm of Martin Snow in Macon, Georgia. Desiring to move closer to home, Shane and his family moved to Tifton and joined Sims & Fleming in 2006. With the firm, Shane handled a variety of cases and is familiar with handling any type of civil litigation. But his passion is for representing the catastrophically injured and their families. That passion likely originated when Shane and members of his family were catastrophically injured in a car wreck when he was young. Driven by his desire to help the injured, Shane has developed a thriving personal injury practice that has resulted in the recovery of millions for the injured and their families.

Shane’s practice is almost 100% devoted to litigation and includes automobile accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, daycare abuse, catastrophic injuries, wrongful death and product liability. Shane has tried a number of cases to verdict and has represented clients in numerous Georgia Counties, the Supreme Court of Georgia, the Georgia Court of Appeals, and Georgia Federal Courts.

Shane attended the University of Georgia, School of Law, receiving his J.D. cum laude in 2005. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia in 2002. The son of a pecan farmer, Shane is originally from nearby Ocilla, Georgia. He and his wife Whitney are members of First United Methodist Church in Tifton, Georgia. Shane and Whitney have a son (Miles) and daughter (Hadley).
