Hugh Spires, Jr. has been practicing law since 1995, and is licensed in both Texas and Arkansas. He served twenty years in the Air Force Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps as an attorney, where he primarily practiced healthcare law and provided estate planning for military members, retirees and their dependents. He understands the inconvenience and burden of traveling to an attorney’s office, yet he appreciates the importance of obtaining legal services when you need it.
Hugh has drafted wills and trusts for a wide range of clients, from a former Buffalo Soldier to an 18 year old boarding a plane to a combat zone, from complicated blended families to new parents who only wanted to ensure they selected the guardians for their children. The personal attention he shows his clients has taken him to the side of hospital beds of the ill as well as to automobiles of the injured, so he could ensure those who needed the services the most received them.
Hugh started the Law Office of Hugh Spires, Jr. so he could again make estate planning legal services accessible to everyone and provide the convenience people want and personal attention they deserve.
As a JAG, Hugh defended physicians in medical malpractice claims, advised the Air Force Surgeon General’s Office on policy, and counseled hospitals world-wide on physician adverse privileging hearings. He also served as the legal advisor to the Air Force Disability Evaluation Board and the second largest medical center in the Air Force. After retiring from the JAG Corps, Hugh served as a litigation attorney for the Texas Medical Board where he pursued disciplinary actions against physicians, and served as legal advisor to a healthcare company on state and federal laws and regulations.
Hugh graduated from Northeast Louisiana University in 1991 with a B.A., and the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville School of Law in 1995 with a juris doctorate. Click to read Hugh Spires, Jr.’s professional bio.
