Partnering on Personal Injury and Maritime Law Cases
Dodson & Hooks, APLC focuses its practice on personal injury and maritime law recovery. Our founder laid roots in Baton Rouge almost 50 years ago. Our firm was built on a foundation of hard work and integrity upon which we apply progressive, innovative principles. Our firm attracts experienced attorneys who are truly dedicated to achieving justice for clients. For these reasons, we regularly receive referrals from our legal colleagues.
Partnership Arrangements & Attorney Referral Service
Many knowledgeable sole practitioners and small firms lack the substantial resources and time to invest in a single case. Our attorneys have litigation systems and tools in place that we contribute to a partnership.
Some firms focus on other areas of practice and rely on our legal team to bring a personal injury or admiralty case to trial. In addition, complex class action and multidistrict litigation follow complicated rules of procedure that our attorneys know well. Rather than familiarize themselves with the nuances of law and procedure to effectively handle the case, firms often choose to partner with us.
We often work with out-of-state attorneys who need a Louisiana or Baton Rouge presence. In addition, we partner with attorneys worldwide to handle cross-border and maritime claims.

Referring Maritime Cases
Our maritime attorneys have built a worldwide reputation for their work in this area. In addition to their extensive practice experience, our attorneys teach the next generation of lawyers about admiralty law at several universities in Louisiana, including Baton Rouge. Our senior partner, Richard J. Dodson, was one of the first international maritime personal injury lawyers in the state and one of the few to focus on collecting unpaid wages for crews on foreign ships.
Referring Personal Injury Cases
Our attorneys research complex medical, engineering, industrial and valuation matters relevant to challenging personal injury lawsuits. We are thus able to take immediate action on class action, MDL and catastrophic injury claims arising from medical malpractice, oil rig accidents, maritime accidents, construction accidents and toxic torts, including asbestos-related illnesses.
