J. Shane Hudson
South Georgia Injury Lawyer
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. Shane primarily represents catastrophically injured victims and the families of those who have been injured by the negligence of others.
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 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 sizable verdicts for our clients. In fact, we achieved three of Georgia’s top 20 jury verdicts in 2017, including judgements exceeding $1 million and $5 million.
Early Legal Experience
Before co-founding Hudson King, Shane worked with one of South Georgia’s premier law firms for nearly seven 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 an insurance defense firm in Macon, GA. Desiring to move closer to home, Shane and his family moved to Tifton where he joined a prominent local personal injury firm. With the firm, Shane handled a variety of cases and is familiar with handling any type of civil litigation.
