Great Attorney
Several years ago, Jodelle D' Amico, was my child support attorney. She did such an excellent job on my case!! Because of her excellent attorney skills, everything came out in my favor. I am disappointed that she is no longer practicing family law because I wanted to seek her help again .

The worst attorney I ever dealt with
Jodelle is incompetent. She handled my divorce but after conversation with another lawyer I found out how poorly she handled my case. We had an ongoing testy relationship and I regret staying with her.

Would not recommend for divorce
I was referred to Jodi by another attorney and told she was a great divorce lawyer. While she has been practicing law for quite some time and is respected in the court system, I was not at all impressed with her work. The office is old and antiquated, all attorneys share the same e-mail address so you never know who is reading your correspondence or if she is getting what you send her, the paralegal overworked and disgruntled with her job, speaking negatively about Jodi during my first meeting as I waited for her to arrive, literally trying to warn me off from using her to begin with as she said she is not the one to use if children are involved because she "doesn't get why mothers get so protective of their kids," and the paralegal ultimately quit. The next one didn't last longer than a week or two. Once the case got started, so did the problems. There was an absolute lack of communication. E-mails went unanswered over and over again. She would say she was e-mailing information I needed, but it was never received; then when I didn't respond because I never got an e-mail, I was chastised for "not cooperating." Phone calls rarely returned. If leaving more than one message due to not having calls returned, she would literally yell and lecture for calling too much and bothering her. Not notified of court dates or other deadlines looming, little or no prep before court dates. She received discovery by the opposing counsel that I did not receive until months later, well past the deadline for response, even though she swore she sent me the information, which she didn't and we had to rush to complete. If she were a doctor, she would be described as having a horrible bedside manner: Is very impatient, rude, condescending, and brash and insulting. Does not like to be questioned on strategy or issues, even when what she is proposing doesn't make sense or isn't in her client's best interest. The way she treats clients is almost as abusive as the relationships they left, and is totally uncalled for from a "professional." To be fair to her, she knows the law and was probably a great attorney at one time. It just seems as though she is disenchanted with the field and should probably retire soon as her ability to be an ally to people during a difficult time in their life is sorely lacking. I have often said I felt she was working against me instead of helping me, as one would expect from an attorney they hired to help them through a divorce, a stressful time in anyone's life. One ruling in particular she seemed incredibly disingenuous when coming to tell me that's the best she could do, as though some back room deal was made with opposing counsel that wasn't in my best interest at all and oh, well, just accept it. I have had contact with other attorneys throughout the years and have rarely come across one as rude as she is to her own clients. She has no shame in insulting you, your situation, your children, or making comments that are hurtful and rude. When questioned about one matter in particular that needed addressed, I was quickly told I could find another attorney if I didn't think she was doing a good job....many months into the case when it would be difficult for someone else to take over. I got the feeling that she was always shifting blame to me, trying to make me wrong, rather than take responsibility for a mistake or oversight on her part. Hoping to get this wrapped up with the least amount of damage to myself as possible, but considering filing a Bar complaint for unethical behavior for an officer of the court. If you have children, I would not recommend her at all. For an easy divorce where you and your spouse agree, perhaps, just to get the paperwork done and filed she would be fine. Anything beyond that, the stress of trying to work with her to get property and custody issues resolved and a divorce completed as quickly as possible is more stressful than getting divorced itself.

BE WARNED - DO NOT HIRE FOR DIVORCE!
Extremely bad experience with this attn. She provided incorrect advice and I even questioned her on it. Did basic form submitting, without taking any details of my circumstance into consideration and adjusting her approach. The defendant, without any legal background or experience, did better job representing himself directly, completely outsmarted Jodi and first ruling went in his favor. I was forced to drop the case and was still charged thousands. For nothing - just completely screwing up my case. Tried to even get Jodi to take a responsibility for her bad work but to no avail. The office was very disorganized and busy. Forms were not given to me in time, I only found out when I was asked, if I filled out the forms. What forms? I replied. Then only had a weekend to fill these out. Had to ask several times for copies of submitted documents. Her receptionist / assistant's desk was overflown with documents and she later left for another job. And this all was only at a very beginning of my case! Unbelievable! I do not recommend this attn. for divorces at all - be warned!
