Supervising Civil Attorney, Admitted In Arizona, Admitted In Hawai‘i

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 21 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.

Dear Kate Pierce,I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to you for making... the decision to take Tim's case. From the day one, our very first phone meeting I knew that we had a chance at getting better solution for my brother Tim's self Defense case. Your expertise, prowess and your personality gave us confidence that you are the one who can help Tim. I am writing this letter to you to express my family and my sincere thanks for your professional representation on his Self Defense case in the court, however this was a very stressful and lengthy battle specially during pandemic, but you gave us the needed confidence to stay focused and positive and more importantly you treated us as a friend not a client. You did such a great job in all aspects of the proceedings. We were frustrated with the cancellation of court's appointments, Pandemic situation and isolation and afraid of discrimination because of language barriers and believe, but you stand strong and ended the battle and we are happy and thankful to you and your firm.In the end, it all worked out well. I appreciate your hard work and wishing you all the best.(The work of your heart, the work of taking time, to listen, to help, is also your gift to the whole of the world). Jack Kornfieldread more

Great law firm to represent you. Hailey Doval and Andy Marcantel assisted me with my case. Both of... them are very communicative, knowledgeable and responsive. Andy and Hailey are very understanding and very patient. I was not the best client to communicate with given my circumstances but handled my inconsistencies with grace and respect and compassion. They want the best outcome for their clients. I will be using attorneys for freedom in my divorce case as well. Life long client. Anyone should look into attorneys for freedom program/membership. It’s beneficial!! I highly recommend attorneys for freedom to represent you in your case. Attorneys for freedom do not disappoint.read more
