William A Hodge Law Firm. South Carolina Attorney Est. 2010

The Criminal Defense Attorney you want on your side. Honest and fair, I personally speak to each and every one of my clients. Criminal convictions can have a severe impact on your career, family life, and even your future. So, it’s vital to have an attorney whose main goal is to protect your rights, and your freedom. I won’t pressure you to take a plea deal or settle, it’s my job to fight for you!

Our Mission & Vision


I am attorney William A. Hodge, and I believe that the best way to serve my clients is through realistic and aggressive representation. That is what you will experience at my firm in Columbia, South Carolina. I will never mislead you. What I will do is make sure you understand exactly what you are up against, what your realistic options are, and fight to protect your freedom.

What can I do for you? 

Choosing a criminal defense lawyer to represent you is not always an easy process. Your relationship with your attorney is important, so you should feel comfortable with the person you are working with. To give you an idea of what it’s like to work with me, here are some words that describe me well:


I am the only attorney at my firm, so I will always be the one working on your case — not a paralegal or someone with less experience. When you call my office, it routes straight to my cellphone, so I will always be the one who answers.


I offer reasonable rates for my services, and I won’t surprise you with bills you weren’t expecting.


I have experience that many other defense attorneys do not: I have experience as a prosecutor. This means I have an inside knowledge of how your opponent thinks, which helps me build a strong case in your favor.


I don’t settle for mediocre outcomes. Instead, I go after the best results we can get in your case.


I will make sure you are fully informed of your rights, options and everything you are up against.
