Very Skilled and Honest
Joshua was a great lawyer. He picked my case up late in the process and did an excellent job of picking up on the major points quickly and helping me through the process. He is honest, straightforward, and helped us through the process in a caring and positive yet honest approach. At the end of the end the day he was able to get us the best possible result at the end the of the day. I would recommend him to anyone in a complex and difficult situation.

Excepted to plead my case before the board of pardons.
On June 28 2018 Mr. Josh Bobene, accompanied me at The Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Representing and counseling me and my case before the honourable board of pardons. Mr Bodene was helpful and knowledgeable with the procedure involved with pardons. I had an opportunity to speak with Josh Bodene for a half hour before court was called to section at this time we discussed my presentation, when it was my time to present my case before the honourable board of pardons I did so with confidence. I was granted a 5 to 0 letter of recommendation by the board of pardons to be reviewed by Governor Tom Wolfe. In the event I receive a signed pardon letter. I will most certainly contact the law office of Clymer/Bodene to file a letter for clemency, Frank.

Regain firearm rights
Mr. Bodene, Jan and I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all you have done in our attempt to regain my right to own a firearm. Hopefully only one more hoop to jump through at the federal level now. Thank you so very much! Jeff & Jan

Child custody
Attorney Bodene handled my case in a very professional manner. He took the time to listen to my concerns and always kept me updated with how the case was going. I was never concerned about the outcome of my case, from the first time we met, i knew my case was in good hands. I totally recommend his services.

Exceptional lawyer!
We had a legal issue that we knew was a clerical error and were recommended to use Attorney Bodene. From the moment we started conversing, he made us feel at ease. He was very understanding and laid out what he could do for us and how. He responded to all our inquiries promptly and handled everything professionally and quickly! He did everything he said he was going to do and now, it is resolved and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to handle our situation. Thank you!
