Jody L. Broaddus is a civil law attorney with considerable experience in civil litigation matters. Jody has been a licensed civil law attorney for over 17 years. In addition to being licensed in Arizona and Hawai`i, she was also licensed in Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. Growing up in a small town in Iowa, Jody has learned to create a human connection in a close-knit community as well as the importance of earning an honorable reputation. Jody understands that people have challenges in life, and sometimes they just need someone in their community to direct and support them.
After moving to Phoenix in 1988, she went to work as a file clerk at a notable personal injury law firm where she quickly advanced as a civil litigation paralegal. While working at the law firm, Jody’s passion for the law and helping others grew. She obtained her Associates of Arts in Criminal Justice at Eastern Arizona College, then her Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies from Arizona State University, which culminated in her receiving her Juris Doctorate from Creighton University School of Law in Omaha, Nebraska.
Jody has demonstrated success in handling many challenging and complex civil litigation matters. She has been involved in hundreds, if not thousands, of personal injury cases including catastrophic injuries and death. The most important thing for Jody when representing someone is to evaluate what is best for the clients while working to eliminate the crisis that may have been brought to the client, their family, and loved ones.
Jody’s upbringing and family background of farmers, engineers, nurses, and teachers, has taught her the importance of understanding and meeting her client’s needs and priorities along with thinking beyond the expected strategies. Jody prepares cases as if she were going to go to trial. She understands the actions that could be needed and has the persistence for overcoming any challenging obstacles. Preparation leads to success for her clients.
In her free time, Jody enjoys spending time with her spouse and her crazy rescue dogs and cats. While Jody hails from Iowa, she has made Arizona her home and has lived here most of her life. Being social is a key part of her career and she spends a lot of her time enjoying the downtown Phoenix area, especially when her band gets a gig. She also enjoys hitting the road to experience all that Arizona has to offer. Jody is proud to share that because she was a recipient of an athletic college scholarship, she founded and funds the Jody Buzicky Women’s Athletic Scholarship at Eastern Arizona College.

"Jody has extremely strong knowledge of the law and had key insights that guided the strategy around our case even though it resulted in us needing to work through an insurance attorney to fully resolve. We would hire her again in the future and highly recommend her!"M. B.
