Kesha A. Hodge focuses her practice on the representation of policyholders in first party insurance claims. She has successfully handled commercial and residential property claims, stemming from varying causes of losses, including hail, wind, rain, and fire events. She has also effectively made insurers overturn their wrongful denial of life insurance claim benefits on behalf of the surviving beneficiaries. As someone who has personally witnessed the loss a policyholder sustains when the insurance carrier fails to honor its contractual obligations, Kesha is a passionate advocate for policyholders.
Kesha graduated with distinction from both the University of the Virgin Islands and Arizona State University College of Law, where she received her bachelor’s degree and Juris Doctor respectively. She began her legal career with the Arizona Court of Appeals as a law clerk to the Honorable Cecil B. Patterson (retired) and then as a senior law clerk to the Honorable Maurice Portley. She then joined the Arizona Attorney General Office before entering private practice. Kesha has a broad spectrum of experience having represented governmental, corporate, and individual clients in federal and state courts, as well as before regulatory agencies and in alternative dispute resolutions forums such as appraisals, arbitration, and mediation. Having represented both the insured and the insurer, she has developed valuable insight as to how to effectively achieve results for her clients.
