A rare combination of aggressiveness, professionalism, quick-wittedness, thoroughness, respectfulness, and repsonsiveness
I highly recommend Jody Sellers for trial or mediation. Jody exceeded my expectations in how well he handled my divorce case. While preparing for trial, he listened very closely to all of my concerns and goals. Prior to going to trial, he formulated a legal strategy that not only addressed all of my needs and goals, but went much further in several critical areas of the case. He answered my emails (and I sent many) usually on the same day...always by the next day. He always responded to my phone calls very quickly. He handled all legal documents and written communications with the court, the judge, and OP's attorney with speed and precision on every occasion. When we went to trial, he was even more impressive. Jody remained professional and respectful to me, the OP, and the Judge throughout the hearing. At the same time he was very very persuasive and effective when speaking with the judge and negotiating with the OP's attorney. Jody handled my trial with a rare combination of aggressiveness, professionalism, quick-wittedness, and respectfulness all in one package. He was very well organized with legal documents, exhibits, etc.. He achieved a better outcome in my case than I expected. I wouldn't want to face him in court. I highly recommend Jody.

Rights Restoration
I went to two law firms for rights restoration. One tole me it was a sure thing they could get them restored. The Sellers law firm was very honest and upfront about having a 50/50 shot of getting my rights restored. They told me the circumstances that may or may not impact the outcome. One year later my rights were restored. I appreciate their honesty and integrity.

Professional and Great Staff !!!
I wanted to choose a small firm that was a good fit for me. I was worried about the outcome due to divorce In general. I mostly was contacted by Judy or I reached out to her. IF Ever I needed to reach out to Mr. Sellers or had a question, She relayed It to Mr. Sellers. I really didn't have anything to worry about!!! This was a quick and easy process..If I ever need them again, It's one call that's all !!! If I could rate more than 5 stars , I surely would . To the entire staff, I really appreciate y'all.

Incredible!!
I hired Jody after I realized my first lawyer had ‘dropped the ball’ so to speak. Jody and his team sat down with us and discussed our case and made a plan!! They followed through with every step and kept me updated. Every email and phone call was returned and answered all my questions. The day of mediation and the day of court Jody was there early to review everything with me. I was so impressed with how polite and well spoken he was when explaining our case to the judge and mediator. If I have any other legal needs I will go straight to Jody from the beginning!! I am so thankful for him and his team!!
