5.0 stars 48 totalReview Joseph Bodiford
I knew Mr. Bodiford was the lawyer I needed on my side from the moment I met him for a consultation. He is easy to talk to and very honest about what can happen. His prices are the best in town. He truly cares about his clients. I've never seen a lawyer call you after 5, on the weekends or even near a holiday but Joe will. As soon as he knows something about your case, you will know. My charge carried a sentence of up to 15 years and Joe got me zero! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing everything you said you would. If you need a criminal defense attorney, look no further!
Was very happy with the job they did. If you every get into trouble you just call Joe. He's better than most cause he really understands your situations and does a awesome job at defending your rights. Never had a problem getting a hold of them, like some attorneys. So if you need help you found the right office. Good luck Joe and hope I won't need you again but you never know.
Awesome lawyer took care of everything got my case thrown out, thank you Joe. Also thanks to Gannon he does a awesome job. Would highly recommend this law firm, was very understanding about how these judges are, and did his job. That's what's up...
I regrettably got myself in some trouble and thought my life was over. Once I found Joe he explained what was going to happen to me and what my options were. Thanks to him, I am in a better situation now and have moved on with my life.
For anyone out there who does not know where to turn, I would reccomend hiring Joe Bodiford. I am a 20 year old student who was facing a DUI charge without any prior encounters with law enforcement. Going through the process for the first time, I did not know what to do and was scared out of my mind. Considering the circumstances of my arrest, I thought for sure that I would be convicted and was considered entering a guilty plea at my arraignment. Thankfully, I decided to research my options before making a terrible mistake. After hours of reading online, I decided that it would be in my best interest to hire an attorney. With limited knowledge of how to go about consulting with/hiring an attorney, I continued my research, this time searching for the best attorney I could afford. I narrowed down my options to the five attorneys that I felt suited me best and met with each of them. Despite the fact that all of the attorneys that I met with seemed competent and respectable, it became clear to me that my best course of action would be to retain Mr. Bodiford. Among the things that made me decide to move forward with hiring Joe were his numerous years of trial experience both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney, and his knowledge of DUI specific laws. But, what set him apart from the others was his approach to my situation. He was practical, calming, compassionate, detail-oriented, persistent and friendly. I could immediately tell that Mr. Bodiford cares about each and every one of his clients, individually. At the consultation, we discussed my end goal in hiring an attorney, which was to not have a DUI on my record. Though he never guaranteed that he could make that happen, I could tell he was going to do his absolute best for me. 6 months down the road, Joe managed to get my DUI plead down to a reckless driving, adjudication withheld. Never once, did I have to set foot in court. I cannot say enough about Joe and his legal clerk Gannon who kept me informed throughout each step of the process, answering any and all questions I had professionally, and without hesitation. Now much wiser, and more knowledgable about the legal process, I would recommend that anyone facing a criminal charge hire Joe Bodiford. He and his team simply provide everything someone should expect out of their attorney.
Retaining Joe ended up being an excellent and smart decision. He is very reliable and was reachable well after office hours. The best and most important part of having him working on your behalf is that he is experienced and extremely skilled at what he does. Going through legal matters is never a fun experience, but having Joe on your side can help you feel much better, because you know you have a great lawyer working with you. Would recommend him in a heartbeat. Thanks Joe!
Joe is a first class professional. His years of experience as a prosecutor and a trial attorney are evident in the way he can fluidly navigate the judicial system. He has extensive contacts in the Tallahassee criminal justice system and at FSU. I retained Joe's services when my child was arrested while attending FSU. I connected immediately with Joe who maintained contact communication with us as the case progressed through the criminal justice system. I hope that I never need the services of a criminal attorney in the future, but if I do, Joe's the man.
Receiving a phone call at 1am from your straight “A” student who is miles away and has crossed paths with law enforcement can be quite unnerving. Frantically searching for solutions in the wee hours of the morning was exhausting and disheartening. Joe Bodiford was the first person who responded to my frantic emails and was also the first person to put my mind at ease, reassuring me that “all would be well”. After talking with Joe, I also had the opportunity to speak with other lawyers in the area who shared the exact same information as Joe, but these lawyers also tripled their cost for the same work. Most reassuring was my brother who is also a lawyer, who told me to go with Joe based on his knowledge and reasonably priced services. I highly recommend Joe if you’re looking for an experienced lawyer who responsible, knowledgeable, and affordable!
Joe did a great job resolving the issues of my case both quickly and efficiently for me. I lived out of town and he worked all the details out and saved me the added expenses of traveling to and from. I was very satisfied with the results. I would strongly recommend him to any of my family or friends.
Joe was simply fantastic. He was passionate about our defense, responsive throughout a long drawn out process, cared deeply about the outcome and its impact on my son, and he was patient with us as we asked hundreds of questions. It was a privilege to work with him and I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for counsel in the Tallahassee area.
