  • Julia Alexandra Ofenbakh

    RJ Hudson was the opposing attorney in a very difficult divorce matter. I was very impressed with how professionally RJ conducted himself in and outside of the courtroom. His client was in a difficult position and RJ achieved the maximum he could under the circumstances. RJ is a very knowledgeable and zealous advocate.
