Biography Overview

Joe Harrison Wade, II (Jody) is a personal injury trial lawyer practicing out of Morgan and Morgan, P.A.’s Jacksonville, FL office. Jody is a former United States Marine infantryman, a 2002 graduate of the University of Kentucky and a 2006 graduate of Florida Coastal School of Law. Jody applies the same qualities required of a U.S. Marine to the people he represents today. He has extensive experience in personal injury cases ranging from car, truck and motorcycle crash to slip and fall injuries and dog attacks.

Jody spent more than ten years as a lead attorney in a respected Jacksonville personal injury and criminal defense firm prior to joining Morgan and Morgan, P.A. Today, his work is focused solely on helping those who have been seriously injured because of the careless/needless acts of others by taking on insurance companies who nearly always refuse to pay fair value for these needless acts of negligence.

Jody is a member of the Florida Bar, Kentucky Bar, and the Federal Middle District in Florida. He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. This membership is based on strict objective qualifications and is one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members.
