Attorney Will Hogg joined the Kennedy Hodges team in February of 2017. Before taking the job with Kennedy Hodges, Will used his skills on a defense litigation team representing companies in the transportation, oil and gas, and construction industries, as well as professional liability for architects, attorneys, and physicians. Will later practiced in business litigation, regulatory compliance, and transactional fields in the medical, construction, and private equity industries.
Will graduated from Tulane Law School, where he participated in the moot court competition, published two academic papers, and during which he contributed over 260 hours of pro-bono legal work. While in law school, Will clerked for the U.S. Department of Justice prosecuting federal crimes and for the Attorney General of Texas litigating civil fraud cases. Prior to law school, Will graduated cum laude from Texas Christian University, during which he interned for the Mayor and City Council of Fort Worth, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate.
Will currently represents workers in Fair Labor Standards Act(FSLA) cases throughout the country. His focus is on recovering wages earned by workers that were improperly withheld by their employer. Will’s background in defense litigation and regulatory practice gives him a unique insight into how these companies operate internally and their various strategies for avoiding legal obligations under the wage and overtime laws. His time with the federal prosecutor’s office and the Attorney General’s anti-fraud team also taught him the mindset needed to litigate these wage theft cases to the fullest extent of the law.
Will is a regular volunteer with the Houston Volunteer Lawyers Association, the Houston Bar Association’s LegalLine program, Houston Young Lawyers Association, and the Special Olympics of Texas.
