Jeremy Hodges joined Rikard & Protopapas in June of 2020.  He spent the first 16 years of his legal career at a prominent defense firm in Columbia, South Carolina where he gained extensive and valuable experience defending and litigating cases throughout South Carolina and West Virginia. 

Jeremy has handled a variety of cases during his career, ranging from consumer financial services litigation, complex business litigation, pharmaceutical and medical device products liability, will and trust litigation, unfair and deceptive trade practices, bid protests, procurement disputes and matters before the South Carolina Public Service Commission. He has tried numerous cases to verdict in state and federal courts in South Carolina as well as in state court in West Virginia.  Jeremy’s practice now focuses on securities litigation, investment losses, complex business litigation, fraud and other unfair and deceptive trade practices related to investments.

Originally from Laurens, South Carolina, Jeremy is the son of retired public-school teachers, and not surprisingly, strongly believes in the power and importance of making high-quality education accessible to all students.  He and his wife Emily and their two children make their home in Columbia, SC where his wife works as a schoolteacher.
