About J. Shane Hudson

South Georgia Personal Injury Attorney

J. Shane Hudson 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 the age of 40. Shane primarily represents catastrophically injured victims and the families of those who have been injured by the negligence of others.

Case Results

Shane and J.L. have served numerous individuals and families facing life-altering injuries and devastating losses due to the negligence and recklessness of others. Most cases are resolved without the need for a lawsuit. In many cases our out-of-court settlements have resulted in recoveries of multiple millions of dollars for victims. However, we have also been very successful when going to trial. Our team has successfully litigated many jury trials and achieved a number of sizeable verdicts for our clients. In fact, we achieved 2 of Georgia’s top 20 jury verdicts in 2017 with our verdicts of $1 million and $5 million respectively.

Early Legal Experience

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 where he joined Sims & Fleming in 2006. With the firm, Shane handled a variety of cases and is familiar with handling any type of civil litigation.

Empathetic Counsel: Shane Knows What You're Going Through

Shane’s true 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.

Courtroom Experience

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.

Educational Background & Personal Life

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).
