R. Mark Hodges and Kimberly N. Howland successfully defended a medical malpractice case against a surgeon client of the firm who was sued in Hinds County Circuit Court for allegedly improper surgical care.

After a five day trial in February of 2013, the jury exonerated the physician and returned a defense verdict at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, February 7th. The jury deliberated for two hours before reporting its verdict, which reflected a vote of eleven to one in favor of the defendant.
