While others write that Rodi worked their high conflict custody trial and won for them when it seemed unlikely, Rodi sat and watched my extremely high conflict custody case be railroaded. In the nearly 2 year case, all Rodi did was very, very mildly and quietly represent me in court. On one occasion she didn't call me or return my calls to inform me what had happened at an important hearing that I could not attend, for nearly a month, when she did, I found that there were time sensitive things I was supposed to be doing during that month. It was always very difficult to get a hold of her. She gave me bad advice that, in the end, affected my side of the case badly. She didn't speak up when it came to false accusations that were being thrown around by the other party in hearings. I truly wish I would have chosen a different lawyer, one who would have actively and ambitiously helped me fight for my parental rights. Rodi did nothing but sit on her hands throughout the entire time. Maybe she was too busy working hard on everyone else's case to care about mine?

I was locked in an extremely rancorous custody battle and the situation looked very dark. My spouse seemed to hold all the cards. Over time Rodi turned this around and won a complete victory at trial. The odds of this happening seemed impossible at the start, but her calm and thorough approach combined with the respect she has earned in the courts made it happen. Her and her staff, Barb deserves special mention, took a personal interest in my case and we are very grateful. And on top of it all; justice was served. Perfecto mundo!

From what I have gathered from the various professionals (GAL, child therapist included) my custody case is one of the most involved and unbelievable most of them have ever seen. I was in need of a criminal lawyer that was spawned from my case and Rodi made a the best suggestion of who to get. She has worked with her and other professionals in my case to give me the opportunity in the near future to possibly gain custody of my daughter. The hurdle we had to jump involved getting a false criminal matter resolved and because of Rodi's knowledge and methodical step by step process of building my case I was able to get that resolved. My own criminal lawyer herself said " Rodi did all the work, I just took her work and showed it to the right people." Her paralegal should not go unmentioned at all either. They work amazingly together and is also a key part of her success.

I have had some difficult post-dissolution parenting-related issues to resolve, and the attorney who originally handled my divorce has changed the focus of his practice so he referred me to Ms. O'Loane. From the moment I met her, I knew she'd be a perfect advocate for me and my daughter. She cemented my opinion with the diligence she showed with her work on my case. Ms. O'Loane is the consummate professional, is careful and conscientious, is honest and forthright, she is incredibly well-spoken, and perhaps most importantly to me, she easily instilled my confidence and trust in her as she helped me cope through the incredibly emotional aspects of my case with her objective and calm manner. Further, when it came to our court date, I was one-hundred percent confident having Ms. O’Loane speak on my behalf in court. The commissioner/judge clearly respected her and I really think that makes a huge difference! Our case was absolutely resolved to my satisfaction. Her staff is also very highly capable, patient, supportive, professional, and knowledgeable. Should any additional matters evolve with my ex, I will again retain Ms. O’Loane without hesitation. I’ve referred my personal friends who are unfortunately facing divorce to contact her. To anyone who is facing a family law-based legal battle -- I HIGHLY recommend hiring Ms. O’Loane as your legal counsel. You couldn’t be in better hands – she really is simply outstanding!

Rodi helped me with a post-dissolution matter. I am grateful to have her on my side. Everyone in her office is professional, responsive and kept me informed.

My custody case was a mess due to bad legal advice and inaction over the course of 3 years. I was pleased with the ability of Rodi and her staff to bring this case to a close. I now have custody of my children. I am grateful for them taking the time to keep me focused on the real issues in a time of great distress.
