I hired Rod to be my attorney in a DUI case. It was a very unusual case and Rodd did a great job representing me. I was arrested in May of 2010 on a 4th degree DUI. We continued to request a trial rather then agreeing to the charges, and the entire case was not complete until 7/28/2014. During this time Rodd kept current on other court rulings and used them to our advantage to win my case. He kept me well informed of the proceedings, gave me his thoughts on what he thought would be the best thing to do, but also let me decide in the end. The final outcome was a publice nuisance charge and the court rescinded the license revocation.
Rod assisted with some issues in my case. He is very skilled and knowledgable in criminal defense. Quite aware of the defenses and also new information in constitutional issues and criminal law. He is a bright spot in the often frustrating field of law. He is also very personable and caring. He took time to listen and was quick to respond when I had questions. I would definitely recommend Rodd for his complete and overall abilities and character. If needed, I'd call Rodd again in no time! Hope and pray I am not put in that position again though! Thanks Rodd for your assistance!
Hiring Rodd to handle a criminal case involving my daughters father was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Rodd was knowledgeable, experienced, easy to work with, trustworthy and more important than any of these items he was compassionate and really cared about all that we were going through. I highly recommend Rodd, he really knows his stuff and truly cares about his clients.
Rodd has been my attorney on a couple occasions and I have also recommended him to friends. Rodd works hard to get the best possible outcome for his clients, myself included. He is always honest and doesn't sugar coat or stretch the truth about what he can do for you. Rodd is very knowledgeable about the law and is well known around the courtroom. He is quick to respond to questions/concerns and flexible about meeting with you to discuss your case. Rodd is working very hard on a case that I have pending right now, and I wouldn't want any other lawyer on my side.
Rodd Tschida has represented me and many of my family members over the last 10 years. Rodd has gained the trust from my family because he has consistently worked his tail off to achieve results which were unexpected and beyond expectation. Rodd never looks to take the easy way out and accept the easy settlement, he will keep fighting on his clients behalf until he gets the best possible result.
Rodd did a great job representing my case. He got my DWI reduced to a speeding ticket (seriously, just a speeding ticket) and got my license revocation overturned. He was profession in representing me, listened to my side of the case, and was compassionate to my situation. He understood the law and found an opportunity where the arresting offer had made a mistake. This is huge in my profession. Every year I have file an annual compliance report that asks if I have various things on my record for the last 10 years. Every year I am able to avoid extensive follow up with the compliance committee since I am able to answer "No, I do not have an alcohol related offense in the last 10 years". Rodd was a career saver!
I was a client of Rodd Tschida and paid him $4,500 to represent me in an appeal of drivers license revocation. Mr. Tschida, did not file the notice of appeal within the statute of limitations and as a result my case was dismissed. After an investigation by the Fourth District Ethics Committee and subsequent review by the Director of the Minnesota Lawyers Office of Professional Responsibility, Attorney Rodd Tschida was admonished on September 11, 2012 for violating the following provisions rules:
RULE 1.1 COMPETENCE
RULE 1.4 COMMUNICATION
RULE 1.5 FEES
