Let me first start off by saying being accused of dui is a life changing experience. I can tell you that Mr. Roden is a great asset to have on your side. I know every case is different but he will fight for the best possible outcome. I have to say having your dui charge reduced to a reckless is a great gift in many ways. This man saved me thousands of dollars to say the least. Thanks again Jerry

When I requested help, Gerry was the first to reply, and in person. Gerry spent a long time to understand my case in detail including several hours over a weekend. He strongly encouraged the prosecutor to examine the evidence.
He was very responsive and thorough.

I would just like to start this review by thanking Mr. Roden for all his hard work dedication on my case. Mr Roden went straight to work upon my call. Very professional got right to work by taking adiquite notes on the case the problem while getting to know me on a personal level to ensure my case was 100% success. I had a failure to appear to in court. He successfully got me out of jail right away. Overall very pleased with his professionalism and the personality to adapt to my situation considering the bad circumstances. Recommend him to any one in need of a similar matter or DUI.

Attorney Roden was a great asset in dealing with our Son's arrest for DUI and Possession of a controlled substance. He accurately explained the charges and our options allowing us to select a prudent course of defense. He fought diligently for us and was able to convince the DA to reduce the charge to a misdemeanor which eliminated the threat of jail time and a felony conviction.
We appreciate his professionalism and would recommend him to anyone who asked.

my son was charged with a second DUI .on top of this he was served with a civil injunction for alleged domestic violence,i was referred to MR. RODEN by a church member,and was glad we chose him.so glad that we recommended to other friends. MR. RODEN treaded us with respect the entire time and tirelessly and aggressevly worked the case,looking for ways to beat or reduce the DUI,origenly it looked grim for my son .he was passed out at the traffic light in his car,with the engine running, my son blew in the intoxilyzer later and it showed a reading indicating that he was impaired. MR. RODEN studied the road side video and was able to determine that he was improperly informed on the law relating to refusal and ability to get ones drivers license back ,based upon that MR. RODEN persuasive abilities with the prosecuter,he was able to get the case reduced to reckless driving.the civil injunction was completly thrown out by the judge,based on mr. Roden questioning of her and the law enforcement officers testimony. WE strongly recommend him for all your DUI , criminal and injuntions needs.

I was so glad that someone referred me to Gerry Roden. I had documented the details of my arrest the day after it occurred. Gerry took the information and was able to get my case dismissed before it was even filed. I had favorable circumstances, but it took a skilled lawyer to make proper use of it. Gerry was the right one, and I highly recommend his services.

First off, it needs to be stated that I was guilty of DUI. So take my DUI conviction with a grain of salt. However, hiring Mr. Roden proved to be an unnecessary expense (and a very costly one at that). I hired him because he was the first flyer I received, and his cost was less than many other lawyers I researched. He was approachable and eager when we first met, but that is where the positives stop. He became unresponsive and difficult to reach, and when I got fed up with him not keeping me up to date he treated me as if I was inconveniencing him by calling repeatedly. He sent motions to the court with the wrong name on them (obviously copy and pasted), never was familiar with my case when we talked, and was LATE TO COURT! While in court, he resembled a grandiose stage actor, repeatedly objecting to things the judge said he couldn't even object to. It was plain to see his attitude was irritating the judge and state's attorney to no end, which horrified me in court. In the very end, I received the mandatory minimums only due to the fact I entered treatment on my own volition. It did not seem as if any tactic or wording Mr. Roden utilized held any sway whatsoever with the judge. I was told several times by those familiar with the judicial system that I would have faced those exact penalties for a first time offense with or without a lawyer.

I challenge you to find a lawyer who will take time out of his or her busy day to talk to someone about their issue! Mr. Roden is an exceptional example for all lawyers and I can not recommend him enough. He is trustworthy, knowledgeable and caring.

He did absolutely nothing for me. I never knew any information about my case until less than 24 hours til I had to be in court . He called me by other people's names. He never followed up on anything with me. He treated me like I worked for him when I paid him good money to work for me. I would have rather gave my money to a charity because he literally did absolutely nothing for me. It honestly seemed as though no other lawyers or the prosecutor had any respect for him which did not look good. He left me nasty grams in my email. I emailed him after work one Friday evening before Thanksgiving not expecting a response until the next week or next time he was in the office and he took it upon himself to write me the most unprofessional email I ever read. To sum it up he is a scatter brain and I would not recommend him to anyone ever for any reason.

Gerry was so enthusiastic and sympathetic and passionate in general about what he does. I called for my boyfriends DUI and immediately laid out his expectations for our case. He had longstanding relationships with most of the judges in st Lucie county including ours which was such an advantage. He worked with us on payment and immediately contacted us with any new information he had. We won our case and I would definitely hire Gerry again or recommend him to anyone, he knows what he's doing. Great lawyer.
