Peer Comments

The true measure of a lawyer's skill, compassion and dedication to his clients' causes is best determined by what his peers have to say about him. The following comments about Ken Hooks are from judges who have presided over his trials and appeals, adversaries who have vigorously defended his lawsuits and co-counsel who have tenaciously fought alongside him to obtain justice for their clients.




"Among Alabama judges and attorneys, Ken Hooks is considered one of the state's premier attorneys. His unsurpassed reputation is based on his integrity, experience, and proven success in the courtroom."  Former Justice, Alabama Supreme Court*


"I served as a state judge for 27 1/2 years and had Ken Hooks appear in my court on numerous occasions. He is honest to a fault and the most outstanding professional trial attorney I have ever had appear before me.  Mr. Hooks handled civil cases specializing in products liability, class actions and other tort matters. He was always prepared to the maximum and his cross examination of adverse witnesses and closing remarks were strong points that I always admired.  Ken Hooks is the most capable trial attorney I have ever encountered, and I have had hundreds of attorneys appear in the trials I've had over the years."  Alabama Circuit Court Judge, Retired*


"There is no better lawyer in court than Ken Hooks. That exceptional ability is underscored by Ken’s fine legal mind and his vigorous and innovative approach to cases entrusted to him."  Alabama Circuit Court Judge, Retired


"During my  21 years as a trial judge, Ken Hooks rates in the top five trial lawyers who practiced in my court. He can connect with a jury." Alabama Circuit Court Judge, Retired*


Opposing Counsel


"Ken Hooks is as effective an adversary as I have faced in nearly thirty years of defending products coast-to-coast."  Nationally Known Product Liability Defense Counsel, New York, New York*


"Ken Hooks is one of the most talented and skilled trial lawyers I have ever encountered.    Any defense lawyer who has been on the other side will agree.  He is one of those rare individuals in our business who possesses extreme intelligence, common sense and the ability to effectively communicate with people.  You don't have to look much further than all of the substantial verdicts he has obtained to realize just how good he really is!"  Senior Defense Counsel, Birmingham, Alabama*


"I had the pleasure to try a major products liability case against Ken Hooks that spanned many weeks. It was a hard fought case through both discovery and trial. Ken Hooks was dogged and persistent in discovery and quite capable in trial. He was quite smooth on his feet. Ken could represent me any time."   Nationally Known Product Liability Defense Lawyer, Orlando, Florida*


"I have known and litigated against Ken Hooks for over 25 years.  He has proven himself to be a well prepared and resourceful opponent.  His level of preparation makes his cases very difficult to defend. He is one of the most intuitive lawyers I have ever faced in the courtroom and is gifted before a jury.  He is well respected by both the Bench and Bar."  Senior Defense Counsel, Birmingham, Alabama*




"Ken Hooks is fearless. He is also smart. Having been his co-counsel for over twenty five years in all sorts of cases I can say without reservation that these qualities, combined with his extraordinary trial and people skills, make him a one of a kind trial lawyer. In today's world of myriad wrongdoing he is as needed as he is rare.  A lawyer's lawyer is one thing, but a trial lawyer's trial lawyer is another. There really isn't any mold for his kind of talent --- it is unequaled."  Co-Counsel - Plaintiffs' Attorney, Alabama*


"I've known Ken Hooks from working with him on a case involving the tragic death of a young man who bled to death. Ken's dedication was rivaled only by his legal skill and acumen. He got to the truth and was able to obtain justice for a family who lost a son.  There are few lawyers who possess the skill Ken does."  Co-Counsel - Plaintiffs' Attorney, Atlanta, Georgia*


"I have known Ken Hooks for some 25 years as a savvy and fierce litigator on behalf of his clients. Ken and I have worked on a variety of complex personal injury and wrongful death cases over the years with great success. No case is too complex or difficult for Ken."  Co-Counsel - Plaintiffs' Attorney, Jacksonville, Florida*


"We have worked with trial attorneys in various parts of the country.  One of the best that we have worked with is Ken Hooks, who we consider to be a skilled, dedicated and compassionate litigator."  Co-Counsel - Plaintiffs' Attorney, Baton Rouge, Louisiana*
