Outstanding Service and Expertise- Thank you!
I am writing to express my sincerest gratitude for all the hard work and dedication you put into our adoption case. Your expertise and guidance were invaluable during this complex and emotional process, and we are so grateful for your support. Your attention to detail and commitment to ensuring that all the legal aspects of the adoption were handled properly gave us peace of mind throughout the entire process. Your knowledge of adoption laws and regulations helped to navigate some difficult situations, and we are beyond thankful for your guidance. Your professionalism, honesty and kindness were greatly appreciated, and you always made yourself available to answer any questions I had and provide me with updates on the progress of the case. You went above and beyond to ensure that everything was done in a timely and efficient manner. Thanks to your efforts, our adoption was successful, and we are now the proud parents. We will always be grateful to you for helping to make our dream of becoming parents a reality. Once again, thank you for your outstanding service and support. We will always remember the incredible work you did for our family.

I highly recommend!
We could not have found a better lawyer to guide us in our adoption journey than Mr. Roddy. He is professional, quick to respond to any questions that you may have along the way, and he is great at keeping you informed through the whole process. I highly recommend him to anyone in need an adoption lawyer.

We just went through a lot of adoption problems. We were so pleased with Mr. Roddy and would highly recommend him. He was always available and even went out of his way to meet us at the airport as we left for the adoption. This is the only lawyer we would use now.

Above Reproach and Patient
Hired Dion through ADAM summer of 2016. Immediately noticed Dions integrity in our first consult. By the end of our last meeting at the arbitrators office, I was convinced I had chosen wisely. Dion was very patient with me and my 1000 questions and made sure I was comfortable with our decisions. Very personable fellow.

Dion was always extremely nice and attentive. He came into our particular case mid-way through and picked up immediately. He was always efficient in communication (even when I asked seemingly silly questions). We cannot thank him enough for his attention to our case and help through this process.

Best. Lawyer. Ever.
Simply put, hiring Mr. Roddy was the best legal decision I’ve ever made. From a technical point of view Dion provided great results; he knows his stuff. He kept me out of court and protected the time I have with my daughter. However, Dion has a unique quality… something that I’ve found nowhere else. He provided a peace of mind I didn’t think was attainable within legal matters such as my own. Dion’s nearly boundless efforts and genuine caring demeanor made it obvious to not only myself but also those around me that he was invested in my situation and cared about what the outcome meant for my family. He continuously made time for me, always respectfully shared his opinion truly embodying a legal advisor (not a yes man) and was the most on point attorney I’ve ever hired… I’ll never look elsewhere again.

Our experience was excellent
My wife and I had the opportunity to work with Dion on a step-parent adoption in 2014. He’d been highly recommended by an attorney I know (in another field) and we’re happy to confirm that recommendation after going thru the process with him. He’s smart, thorough and a genuinely nice guy. We felt well informed and well prepared for every step in the process and he always went out of his way to make things easy on us. On more than one occasion he stopped by after hours for signatures, which was an incredible help for working parents with three young kids. We would definitely work with him again!

Excellent family lawyer!
We hired Dion Roddy to help us with the termination of parental rights and ultimate step-parent adoption for my son. Several lawyers did not even want to take this on. Mr. Roddy not only accepted our case, but he walked us through the process and kept us informed of all the steps. The adoption went swimmingly, and we couldn't be happier. I would absolutely seek out and recommend his services again. Thank you!

Mr. Roddy was nothing but excellent with my whole divorce process. He was extremely professional as well as supported me emotionally. He was very clear with everything and I was not left to wonder about anything. He even handled things that My Ex-wife could not get her attorney to take care of. I would recommend Him to anyone.

Reputable and kind adoption lawyer
Dion was the perfect lawyer to work with so my new husband could adopt my daughter. He thoroughly explained the process, associated fees and gave an easy to understand timeline. He would check in and follow up throughout the process and showed that he cared about assisting us with this process. Things went very smoothly with no errors. I highly recommend working with Dion!

Adoption of our daughter
Mr. Roddy was most professional and helped us reversed the rejection by the INS, because of his relentless effort to present our case. We were very pleased by his representation and have since been recommending him to people who needs similar services.

Dion Roddy- fantastic family lawyer!
After dealing with my ex-wife for years, it became apparent she would never honor my rights as a father. This fact made me seek out ADAM of Southfield, Michigan- the law firm where Dion Roddy practices. Over the course of our case, I had the pleasure of witnessing Dion's professionalism, compassion, and quiet confidence. Not only did he completely dismantle all of opposing council's falsehoods and claims, he displayed a great deal of care and compassion towards me and my family. It was apparent he truly cared for my family. Dion was always sure to respond to my communications and quickly return calls. Bottom line- Mr. Roddy cares deeply about his clients. It is clear he will always do everything in his power to win the day for his clients, as he did for me. In a few short months, Dion was able to accomplish everything we set out to do, everything I had been working towards for years. We achieved a proper and fair parenting time schedule, rotating holidays, two weeks with my son during the summer months, and so much more. Because of Dion Roddy, I am able to be a father, on my terms and with the right amount of time with my son. My life feels whole and complete, with my son in my life as he should be. I have Dion Roddy and his law firm to thank for this. I can only give him my thanks, gratitude, and the highest of praises. Dion Roddy is a fantastic lawyer and an amazing man.

Currently represented by Mr. Roddy
Going through a divorce is a difficult process for anyone. My divorce was particularly difficult because there was abuse from my ex - partner and I have a young child with special needs. Mr. Roddy has the unique combination of empathy and legal expertise to efficiently guide you through your legal journey. A combination that makes working with him a very positive and lasting experience no matter the current direction of your case. I am honored to have worked with him and to hear some of his personal motivation for practicing law. He has provided an immeasurable amount of energy and dedication to something that is so important to me. His presence and guidance has been a huge factor in the success of my family.

Adoption Attorney
Mr. Roddy represented us in the private adoption of our 13 year old son last year. He worked well with the attorney representing the aunt and uncle who had guardianship of him and effectively represented us during the preadoption phase until the adoption was final. He is very professional and easy to work with.

Spineless, inexperienced, pathetic
First mistake of my divorce was to hire ADAM. Best idea of my divorce was to change attorneys. Second mistake of my divorce was to change to another one within the ADAM organization. Dion is a very inexperienced and timid attorney. While he may in fact know the law, he is the farthest thing from aggressive as you can get. You need an attorney that is in the driver's seat, and Dion is not only not in the driver's seat, but he's not even in the car...he's in the trunk. His communication skills are extremely poor...when I asked him a question and he gave me the "legal-ese" answer I would tell him I didn't understand what that meant (I'm a white collar professional with a Bachelor's degree in engineering, so I'm not an idiot) he would simply regurgitate the same thing, not realizing that I am not an attorney, and wanted an explanation that did not involve as many legal terms. More times than not I had to lead Dion by the nose on what to do next on the case, how to go about the next steps, etc. I also had to request that NO documents leave his office prior to my review because there were multiple errors that were made, and he was not following my requests as far as what course of action I wanted. I felt like ADAM did everything but look out for my best interests...I wish I could take it all back. They are horrible, slow, expensive, and just plain poor attorneys. One thing I learned about picking a divorce attorney is this: if a firm has to advertise in order to get clients, there's probably a reason for it. ADAM is just a high priced law firm that does a better job of advertising what they do, than actually doing what they advertise.

"I know Dion both as an opposing counsel as well as a fellow lawyer in the community. His grasp of the applicable law is spot-on. Because of that, we were able to dispose of the posturing and work on resolving the issues. He promptly returned my calls, kept his promises and did what he said he would do. Very competent and professional in every respect."

Family Attorney | Oct 21

Family Attorney | Oct 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I came across Dion's professional path when he clerked for the Honorable Lisa Gorcyca in the Oakland County Family Court. He was always professional and was a positive and calming influence on the good judge's daily docket, which was not short of daily stressors. Now that he has moved to private practice, I have no doubt that he will bring significant value to his clients' matters. Why? Mostly because he genuinely cares about his profession and above all, his clients. You cannot go wrong by hiring this young attorney."
