Attorneys will to fight for you.
Both Attorneys Roger Soroka and Josh Bedtelyon went the extra mile in their defense for up to and including going to trial to make sure my case was heard and adequately defended. His entire staff was helpful throughout this trying time in my life, and I could not be more pleased with the results. I would recommend Soroka and associates to anyone that needs legal representation

The Best Outcome
I was pulled over and charged with OVI in Licking County. We hired Roger to handle my case. The night of the incident, I had one beer 2.5 hours prior to leaving. I was driving my husband's pickup truck and drove on the white lines while I was trying to find the cruise control. I was pulled over and asked to do the field sobriety test. I did what was asked of me and believed to have passed the tests. The cop believed I did not pass the tests, and placed me under arrest. There were several things that we believed that the cop did incorrectly- incomplete directions during the test, searching my person (male cop), saying he smelled alcohol when there was no smell, etc. He asked me to do a breath test, and I declined, due to the law that states it is the cop’s discretion to charge you even if you blow a 0.01. The cop ultimately ended up breath testing my husband, who had nothing to lose since he was a passenger in the vehicle. My husband blew a 0.00, and drove us home. Licking County has zero tolerance when it comes to OVI’s, so they either drop it or go to trial. We went to trial and Roger believed we had a good case. If I was found guilty, I was looking at a minimum of 10 days in jail, along with fines and whatever else the judge may require. Roger and his colleague Josh did a great job during the trial and the outcome was a hung jury. I was not charged and we believed the whole ordeal to be over. A few weeks later, we received news that they wanted to have a re-trial. Roger and Josh were very prepared for the re-trial and did an outstanding job. Every single jury member voted Not Guilty and I was not charged. From the date of the incident to the completion of the re-trial, the timeline was about 1 year. During this time, I was completely stressed, anxious, and overwhelmed with what the outcome could be. We received the best outcome that we could have asked for, and I am so thankful for and appreciative of Roger and Josh, and the time and work that they put into my case.

Client Review
Mr. Soroka & his firm has went above and beyond for me! He has spent countless hours with me explaining things, fighting for me, researching info, and has always made my family & I feel like more than just a client. Any legal needs that I may ever have, I will always call Mr. Soroka first! He achieved the same or better outcomes than some attorneys who wanted 3 times as much money.

Professional and Proficient
After utilizing Roger as my attorney for several different legal matters, I would highly recommend his services to anyone who has specific small business legal needs. Roger is very timely in his communication and very efficient in the work he has done for me. Roger has reviewed and advised me on several of my small business contracts as well as represented me in court for a variety of small business matters.

Thorough and quick
Roger offered very thorough legal council in regards to a traffic infraction. Not only was he quick, and diligent but explained the process in great lengths so I understood my options. I would recommend him to anyone in search of quality and speed

With a pour decision I immediately contacted Roger. Not only was he very informative, his quickness to take action left me with confidence with the outcome. This case was also located out of town. I highly recommend Roger for any of your legal needs.

Dependable, Honest, & Trustworthy
I can't even begin to say enough positive things about my experience(s) with Roger. What I can say, is that sometimes life throws us obstacles that can be challenging, and finding a dependable and trustworthy attorney can make all the difference. I'm always 110% confident in Roger. He's a very dedicated attorney and makes himself available to you. One thing that I truly respect about Roger is his honesty. He tells you the truth, whether it's what you want to hear or not. He's not that attorney that tells you what you want to hear just to take your money. If you want an attorney that truly cares about your situation, is hard-working, honest, and will strive to help you seek justice or overcome whatever obstacle is standing in your way, then I have not a single reservation in saying that this is your guy! He has truly been a blessing to me!

great attorney
i want to take this time to just thank and recommend, roger soroka for the time and dedication he put into my case. my case was a difficult one, and roger was speedy with the process of not prolonging the case. he made sure it was done in a timely manner, was fast to get back with me, and made sure that i really had nothing to worry about. ive never been around a real proffesional attorney untill i met roger. again thank you and would just like to say that without him inspriring, pushing, and motivating me to be a better man, i would probably have or already returned to the lifestyle i was living. so for that im proud to say that roger soroka is a great attorney and a good friend thanks.

All aspects and needs pertaining to corporate, civil and contractual law.
I have worked with Roger Soroka in a legal capacity for several years. He is available for all aspects of law, business and personal advice. Initially we worked together on a civil suit where I was a victim in a crime. After the successful outcome of the suit we continued our working relationship in other areas. We started a new business a couple of years ago and there were requirements for Incorporating, contracts and investment needs. Roger spent time reviewing the business requirements in person. The sessions were very clear that Roger understood our business and the legal requirements for the creating a new corporation. Roger handled all the State, Legal and Tax requirements for setting up the new corporation and has been support our efforts and growth for 2 years. Without his guidance and expertise around corporate law, I believe it to be impossible to handle all the entities surrounding the formation of a new business. Roger and team have been strategic in supporting our corporate, civil and contractual law needs and will remain our legal counsel. I would highly recommend Soroka & Sidoti.

An incredible asset to have on our side!
Recommend without reservations! I and my family have been counting on roger and his legal expertise for over two years now and he has never let us down. Roger and his firm have been instrumental in helping me and several members of my family through some of the most mundane business necessities all the way through very pressing/important and difficult legal issues. His reliability, professionalism, expert counsel and timeliness have all been crucial to good outcomes for all of us; his personal service and approachability is why he is considered one of the most important members of our 'extended' family.

Excellent Legal Services
It was necessary for me to retain counsel in a short period of time and for them to be extremely responsive throughout the process. I was able to get in touch with Roger Soroka almost immediately, which as we know is essential when you are wanting things resolved asap. He met with me THAT day and made room in his schedule just to do so; in addition, this was also in the already busy holiday season. He and his firm were responsive, professional, knowledgable and resolved my legal matters within a short period of time and to a much better result than I had anticipated. I appreciate everything Roger Soroka and his lawfirm did for me and my family. They would be the first firm I would reccomend to anyone seeking legal aid.

Excellent, friendly and knowledgeable
Roger and his staff were not only knowledgeable but friendly as well. They won my case, and at no point during the proceedings did I feel that I couldn't go to them for advice or information. I highly recommend them for your legal needs.
Posted by Jeff | September 30, 2013
Thanks, Roger, for your all your expertise and help.
My company has been working with Roger for almost two years. He is one of the most accessible, responsive attorneys I've ever dealt with. There are many attorneys out there that "know their stuff" (Roger does!) but few that make you feel like you are their most important client at the same time.

protocol to refuse
I employed Mr. Soroka to represent me in a Motion 28 U.S.C. 2255 before the Court. The Motion was unsuccessful. After paying his considerable fee I received a copy of the failed Motion which I filed for future reference. When the need arose, I perused the Motion looking for specific documents. The needed documents were missing, and for some reason had not been included in the copies prior to sending them to me. I wrote to Mr. Soroka requesting the missing documents but received no answer. Days later I again petitioned for copies of the missing documents and again Mr. Soroka failed to respond. Apparently Mr. Soroka believes it is standard protocol to refuse to return documents belonging to clients.

Response from Roger Soroka November 24, 2016
First, I would like to say thank you for your comment, I am sorry that you feel this way about my legal services. This is a very unusual response to receive from one of my clients. I strive to provide the highest quality service possible at all times and maintaining client satisfaction is a top priority for me. If this is a representative of Horacio, I would encourage you to contact me to discuss your matter. I am easy to get in touch with and would be happy to talk to you about any concerns you may have. As you know we always accept collect calls. Furthermore, I am surprised with such a review because it is my firm's policy to send copies of all documents when requested, and your post noted that documents were sent. The documents were resent when they were requested and resent again later. My firm has never ignored your request or any other client's request. Furthermore, all the documents you mentioned are public record and are available for viewing online. As I am sure you know, the corrlinks system is not always reliable in notifying us when new messages are waiting, but I am always available via phone, e-mail, or other methods of communications.
