The Dodson & Hooks Difference

Experienced Personal Injury and Maritime Attorneys

Dodson & Hooks, APLC is a boutique law firm that focuses on personal injury and maritime law. Based in Baton Rouge, we represent clients throughout Louisiana, across the United States, and around the globe. Although we handle a wide breadth of complex personal injury and admiralty topics, we concentrate on a single goal: achieving justice for our clients.

Learn more about the Dodson & Hooks difference and how we can help you with your legal matter.

Team Approach

Our firm restricts the number of cases we assign to each lawyer. This allows us to devote the attention necessary to reach the best possible results in every case. In addition, multiple attorneys, paralegals and other staff typically work on a single case.

Our team approach allows us to more efficiently and effectively handle case investigation, preparation, negotiation and trial. Because our decisions affect you, we consider you part of the team. Our attorneys thoroughly discuss your objectives and concerns and promptly answer your questions. We also provide regular updates on your case status. Being actively involved in your own case can empower you during the challenging aftermath of a serious accident.


We recognize that by making ourselves highly accessible, we can do a better job on your case. We make it easy and convenient for you to reach out to us with updates on your medical treatment, an auto repair quote or anything else relevant to your case. You can always feel comfortable picking up the phone to ask us a question. When you call or come to our office for a case evaluation, you will talk to your lawyer directly.

To serve our diverse international clients, our legal team provides 24-hour access to interpreters who speak several languages, including Spanish, Ukrainian, Romanian and Russian. Our firm also maintains a 24-hour multilingual phone service so you can call us when you need us and communicate in your first language.


The foundation of our firm was laid when our senior partner hung his shingle in Baton Rouge almost half a century ago. Our firm now comprises a bright, dedicated legal team that adheres to a tradition of hard work and professionalism. Our attorneys are regularly invited to speak at legal conferences and to teach the next generation of students at Louisiana law schools.

With experience comes perspective. Dodson & Hooks has earned a reputation in the legal community for developing innovative approaches to problems that, in some instances, lead to groundbreaking outcomes.

Assertive Negotiators

An insurance company is a business that is beholden to its stakeholders to turn a profit. One typical cost-cutting measure is to lower payouts to injured claimants. The insurance agent is crunching numbers, not looking at the person who has suffered a loss. Our personal injury and maritime attorneys understand the impact your injuries have on your life and assertively pursue the compensation you deserve. Our skillful negotiation strategies usually result in a settlement. However, we are also prepared to take your claim to trial if the insurance company and defendants refuse to play fair.
