Tried and True after working with me for two years...
There are few people I could write a glowing report about, but Jody is certainly worthy. Ms. Cucolo has demonstrated legal knowledge and dynamic litigation skills beyond words. My family has been through so much, yet Ms. Cucolo never rushed me off the phone, over billed me, or became unprofessional. She listened and cared. She knew who to work with in the system and if she didn't, she figured it out quickly. I am forever grateful for her time, experience and strategic defense. Thank you Jody!!

Best Rockland County Family Attorney
Jody handled my divorce many years ago. From my perspective, the most important aspect of the ordeal was to make sure I ended up with as much time with my daughter as possible. I wasn't going to settle for alternate weekends and end up barely knowing my daughter as most divorced dads end up. Jody got me that time. It's been over 12 years since my divorce and I am closer with my daughter than many full time married dads. Each case is different and offers different challenges as each ex-spouse and their associated attorney will put up a variety of defenses and arguments all to screw you and perpetuate the fight. Jody is a fighter when she has to be and a settler when it works in your best interest. She is a true advocate for the client - which is the whole point of what an attorney is supposed to be. I now have the luxury of a significant quantity of passed time to look back and objectively evaluate my outcome. I can honestly tell anyone who is searching for an attorney - if you are in that terrible moment in life - when you need to hire a divorce attorney because things just aren't right - Jody is THE right lawyer.

Lack of professionalism emotionally unbalanced
The title speaks for itself, this women is independent with out any professional staff. My first impression is that I would benefit from having better communication from a attorney then a office staff. Not the case! I did have inflated bills, was told not to try arbitration as my wife had proposed it was a waste of time and would cost me more in the long run. During a intimal consultation she requested me to step out of her office as she had to take a incoming call. While I waited in adjacent room I could hear her actually yelling and threatening the other party. Then slam it would appear she hung up on them. I thought it had to be something personal. When she called for me to return she started to tell me about a "stupid" attorney she was on a case with. I did retainer her she was available and said she could file papers in a week with the proper documentation. I quickly provided it. A week went by with her calling me and demanding information on the spot. I explained I was working. I was actually getting reprimanded. With in 2 weeks time I received a call from Mrs.Cucolo stating I needed to give her $5000. more after already giving her $5000. I ask for a copy of what charges I had incurred thus far. Still these papers were not done. She said it would take a day or so to give it to me. This didn't make sense she was asking money but couldn't clearly show me why? two days later I saw a statement with all kinds of billing for all these phone calls that she made to ask me something that was already provided. I was simple answering to a Petition for Divorce without and children involved. I quickly realize that she doesn't get along after speaking with my wife whom informed me of a conversation she was a witness to with her attorney. My ex and I settled out of court for as little over $2000. When I told her I didn't require her services she swore at me and was nasty, telling me I would be sorry. It appears she is desperate for clients and I would strongly urge anyone to stay away.
