I honestly couldn't be any happier with my choice in Joe Bodiford for my criminal case. His price is fair, he's a straight shooter, and he really cares about his clients.
When I got my DUI, I thought my life was over... until I met with Joe. He told me to focus on straightening up my life, to focus on school and stay out of trouble, and to let him worry about the case. And he sure as hell came through. Not only did I never have to set foot in court, but Joe set it up so that my charge was reduced to a Reckless Driving, and I am now in the process of getting my record sealed.
If I ever have any issues in the future, Joe is going to be my first call. Thank you for everything!

After exploring the options for criminal defense attorneys in Tallahassee, I decided to hire Joe to handle my case, and it was the best decision I ever made.
Right off the bat in the free consultation you could tell that Joe was very knowledgeable and experienced in Florida criminal law. Most importantly, he was always honest and upfront with me about the facts of my case and what I was looking at. He was also very reasonable with his price, and you can tell he really wants to help you! In the end he came through for me tenfold. Less than a year after hiring Joe, my record has now been expunged and this whole mess is behind me. I could not be more grateful for his help, and everything he has done for me.
If you want an attorney to go to bat for you, this is your guy!

Hire Bodiford - I went to trial with him and was found not guilty. He and Ganon are the best.

I hired Joseph C Bodifrod of Bodiford PA for a criminal case. I told him I wanted to go to trial from day one. I paid him a total of $2410.98 for services including, but not limited to, DNA testing, finger printing, and to hire an investigator to speak with two witnesses. Bodiford did not use the money for the intended purposes. Bodiford was recused from my case on 4-30-14. I did not know he owed me money because he directly told me he spent the money on its intended purpose. After years I discovered he did not use money money. After I found out he didnt use money I paid him I attempted to get it back. I did not get back the $2410.98 until after a bar complaint, a criminal complaint, a BBB complaint and a civil case was filed. A non-profit has been founded that is dedicated to informing potential clients about how Bodiford PA operates, so people can make an informed choice before hiring him. The non profit paper work is pending and once it goes through the non profit will have a website, expected before April 1st 2017. He is a good attorney but at least in my case he was paid for things he didnt do but still kept the money for YEARS after he was recused from my case, return date October 2016. Beware.

I knew Mr. Bodiford was the lawyer I needed on my side from the moment I met him for a consultation. He is easy to talk to and very honest about what can happen. His prices are the best in town. He truly cares about his clients. I've never seen a lawyer call you after 5, on the weekends or even near a holiday but Joe will. As soon as he knows something about your case, you will know. My charge carried a sentence of up to 15 years and Joe got me zero! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing everything you said you would. If you need a criminal defense attorney, look no further!

Was very happy with the job they did. If you every get into trouble you just call Joe. He's better than most cause he really understands your situations and does a awesome job at defending your rights. Never had a problem getting a hold of them, like some attorneys. So if you need help you found the right office. Good luck Joe and hope I won't need you again but you never know.

Awesome lawyer took care of everything got my case thrown out, thank you Joe. Also thanks to Gannon he does a awesome job. Would highly recommend this law firm, was very understanding about how these judges are, and did his job. That's what's up...

I regrettably got myself in some trouble and thought my life was over. Once I found Joe he explained what was going to happen to me and what my options were. Thanks to him, I am in a better situation now and have moved on with my life.

For anyone out there who does not know where to turn, I would reccomend hiring Joe Bodiford. I am a 20 year old student who was facing a DUI charge without any prior encounters with law enforcement. Going through the process for the first time, I did not know what to do and was scared out of my mind. Considering the circumstances of my arrest, I thought for sure that I would be convicted and was considered entering a guilty plea at my arraignment. Thankfully, I decided to research my options before making a terrible mistake. After hours of reading online, I decided that it would be in my best interest to hire an attorney. With limited knowledge of how to go about consulting with/hiring an attorney, I continued my research, this time searching for the best attorney I could afford. I narrowed down my options to the five attorneys that I felt suited me best and met with each of them. Despite the fact that all of the attorneys that I met with seemed competent and respectable, it became clear to me that my best course of action would be to retain Mr. Bodiford. Among the things that made me decide to move forward with hiring Joe were his numerous years of trial experience both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney, and his knowledge of DUI specific laws. But, what set him apart from the others was his approach to my situation. He was practical, calming, compassionate, detail-oriented, persistent and friendly. I could immediately tell that Mr. Bodiford cares about each and every one of his clients, individually. At the consultation, we discussed my end goal in hiring an attorney, which was to not have a DUI on my record. Though he never guaranteed that he could make that happen, I could tell he was going to do his absolute best for me. 6 months down the road, Joe managed to get my DUI plead down to a reckless driving, adjudication withheld. Never once, did I have to set foot in court. I cannot say enough about Joe and his legal clerk Gannon who kept me informed throughout each step of the process, answering any and all questions I had professionally, and without hesitation. Now much wiser, and more knowledgable about the legal process, I would recommend that anyone facing a criminal charge hire Joe Bodiford. He and his team simply provide everything someone should expect out of their attorney.

Retaining Joe ended up being an excellent and smart decision. He is very reliable and was reachable well after office hours. The best and most important part of having him working on your behalf is that he is experienced and extremely skilled at what he does. Going through legal matters is never a fun experience, but having Joe on your side can help you feel much better, because you know you have a great lawyer working with you. Would recommend him in a heartbeat. Thanks Joe!
