You want Joe Rodak in your corner fighting for you
I retained Joe for some trouble I had gotten into. A few bad decisions and 3 Felony Indictments later, I found myself in a world of trouble. Beginning at the arraignment Joe was was cool, calm and collective. He was aggressive enough to make his point, but not cocky where he screwed my chances. Joe was nothing short of a pit-bull fighting for me, and he certainly didn't let the DA back us into a corner.

Great Lawyer
I have used Joe Rodak since 1997 . I used him as a divorce lawyer and child custody lawyer . I couldn't ask for a better lawyer . As far as my divorce, I got everything I asked for . As far as child custody, I was awarded custody of both of my children .

Better off representing yourself
I hired Rodak to represent me in my divorce. He wasn't prepared at all the day of trial,told me I was bitter and made deals with other attorneys without consulting me. During the trial there were times my children's law guardian would object on behalf of her clients mother, while Rodick said nothing! Because of him and his incompetence I received nothing I should had. I was violently ill after this trial and how badly he handled it. Years later my kids and I are still dealing with the reprocussions of his incompetence. Spend your money elsewhere

Response from Joseph Rodak March 22, 2018
Unfortunately, in divorce situations, there are never any clear cut winners, and even Judges frequently say that if both parties leave unhappy to a certain degree, then they feel they have done their job. I regret that, after all these years, you did not feel you could reach out to me personally to address your concerns with me. Due to your annonimity, I am not able to contact you, but I would be more than happy to make myself available to you to discuss your concerns. Please feel free to contact my office at any time.
