Client Reviews

Had free consultation

Advice given was taken, and resulted in change of mind in the other/opposing party. We therefore did not need to retain. Should opposing party resume original opinion, we will retain.


I wanted an easy divorce from my wife.

She wanted a fight. Rodd and I discussed fair terms for a dissolution. Because he was pro active and stayed on top ofthe case, my wife and I finally reached an agreement and hada dissolution. I highly recommend Rodd.


I was in a terrible custody dispute with my ex.

I was very upset and afraid of my ex. Rodd listened to everything I said and remembered everything I said. He was aggressive in court and used the information I gave him very well. We won the case and my ex has backed off.


I hired Linda Lawrence.

Because I have a business and I wanted to protect it in my divorce. Linda is top notch and knows about business finance and assets. I was able to keep my business and not have to pay my wife anything from it. Hire her.


I hired Linda Lawrence.

Because I needed an aggressive attorney. Linda was able to stand up against the other attorney and was very aggressive in court. It was an expensive divorce case, but that was because the other attorney was very aggressive and Linda was very thorough. I had great results in my case and highly recommend Linda.
