  • Michael A Smolensky

    I endorse Caroline L. Vodzak, Esq. Concentrating primarily on family law, Ms. Vodzak helps clients resolve issues arising out of divorce, separation, and child custody, among others. Well-versed in this and other practice areas, Ms. Vodzak has spent about twenty years thus far cultivating and refining her knowledge of the law. Indeed, Ms. Vodzak earned a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Legal Studies and Administration of Justice. Of course, this is in addition to earning her Juris Doctorate at Duquesne University School of Law. Furthermore, a quality found only among top lawyers is attention to detail. As indicated by her accomplishments, Ms. Vodzak has earned recognition not only for her legal knowledge and candid communication, but also for attention to detail. For all these reasons, I endorse this attorney.
