Jody is personable and understands her clients. You can call her anytime of day and she responds. She not only invests time into her cases but her heart. Her passion for the law and her work is undeniable.
My Name is Anthony G. Boudouin, I'm a Merchant Marine License Officer with an Unlimited Master Endorsement. I'm employed wth the government shipping agency under the operational control of the U.S. Navy called the Military Sealift Command. Presently I'm one of only two African American Officers holding a MAsters license with nearly forty years of maritime experience in the Merchant MArines and U.S. Coast Guard combined. I've applied and have been repeatly denied being promoted to the position of Captain for the past seven years I felt enough was enough and seeked legal counseling to obtain either a valid reason or justification of this discrimination based on my race and age.
The law firm of Angela Alioto was recommended to me from a close friend, I requested an interview with Ms Alioto and her staffs of very personal and professional lawyers, after the initial interview they agreed to take on the government and represent me in this case. Ms Miesel was assiged to my case as my personal lawyer and began her long journet into the maritime industry and that of the U.S. Navy operations of this shipping company. This required hundred of hours to prepare for such a jolting task. Althought it seems overwheming Ms Meisel continued her persue to obtain a clear understanding of how and what this large organization was and exactly who was responsible for its desicion regarding who was and was not qualified to sail as Master of these military cargo ships that support our Naval Maritime Defense.
I can not say enough nor can I find words to express how much knowledge it required to understand this organization but Jody certainly prevailed in all aspects.. She now understand what Chief Mates, Masters and even the ordinary seaman is on a ship. She now undersand what dedication is required to perform this job and she has taken this to the higest level of the U. S. Navy representatives in my behalf. This is not an easy tasking by no means, our government agencies are all very large and complex, Jody has displayed patience and cafeful calculation in each of her maneuvers seeking an answer and justice for her client.
I shall always keep her in my personal and professional files and shall without hesitation recommend her to any of my friends in need of a lawyer who not only provides excellent representation in the courts but is also personal and keep you well informed as to each and every move that is made on your behalf. She has over the period of nearly eight months become a friend as well as my personal lawyer. I feel her honest efforts will produce positive results and provide an opportunity for those in my situation to be equally evaluated by their merits , their dedication and professional contributions in the organization. This again is a massive tasking but I could not have found a better Lawyer to represent me in this case. Thank You very much..
Was having an issue at work. Jody worked with me to "fix" the situation. Her understanding of the particular situation and her patience and dedication was unsurpassed.
