I first hired Jody Usow back in 2010 for Family Court help. My child's mother was very difficult to work with and did everything she could to obstruct our progress even falsely accusing myself of child abuse and battery along the way. Jody answered all the trouble and allegations with the utmost professionalism and tact. In the end, Jody cleared me of the false allegations and secured the 50/50 placement and custody that I was after. Jody urged me to go for full placement and custody in that case, but I hadn't been ready at the time. Skip ahead to 2015 and my son's mother is struggling with parenting and to get our 8 year old to school. We now have truancy court to deal with as a result. My son's mother continues to fail in front of Juvenile court and I consult with Jody Usow and hire her for the rest of the Juvenile court situation and also to secure full custody and placement with an amended family court order. Jody Usow worked hard to get the juvenile case closed and to secure 100% placement and custody of my son with me. Also, child support was ordered to be paid to my son and me. If I need legal representation in the future, I will not hesitate to hire Jody Usow.

I contacted Jody when the original divorce attorney I hired seemed at a loss to deal with complexity of issues in the divorce. She brought to the case a professionalism and intelligence that I appreciated and admired. She kept my emotions out of the case and made sure that I made good decisions when the stress of the moment might have driven me to make poor long term decisions. She was a great asset to have during the proceedings and I was glad she was with me every step of the way.

I went to Jody with a custody battle and was very afraid when doing this. I explained the while situation to her and was thrilled with her detailed plan on to tackle this. I followed her directions step by step and the case was eventually withdrawn from the mother. If you hire her, follow exactly what she tells you and you will be very satisifed. I would use her again in a heartbeat and hopefully will not have to.

Jody is a great lawyer and a great person. When I hired jody she treated me with the upmost importance. She was very concerned with my case I felt like I was at the top of her client list. Jody eventually got my case dropped and even after that she was great to me as I dealt with a tragedy in my own life. I cannot speak high enough of jody as a person and a lawyer.

Jodi helped me in a criminal case as well as a divorce proceeding.
In my opinion she went well above what was required She was always supportive and readily available to answer any questions
that I may of had. I have moved to Connecticut, and hope, ( if I need representation again), to find a lawyer half as good as Jody.
I immediately felt at ease when speaking with Jodi. She let me get to the point, and asked the appropriate questions. It is Sunday evening, and my legal situation is weighing very heavily on my mind. I was also seeking an objective opinion, and I believe I got just that. I am also glad that she is a local attorney and I can meet with her in person. If I choose to.

I hired Jody to represent me in a divorce case in late 2014 and 2015. Jody has all the characteristics of a great attorney that you would want to represent your interests. She is highly professional , communicative and is very personable. Jody takes the time to explain your options under the law so you can feel confident in the decisions you make. She then acts diligently to fulfill those decisions within the legal system.
Hiring an attorney is not a simple decision and is usually done under stressful conditions. In my case, hiring Jody was a great decision.
The call was half hour late from the scheduled appt. When speaking this attorney was loud and almost to the point of being rude. When asking questions I felt rushed as I was trying to get to the next question this attorney would keep talking about something I already knew. Basically she sounded like she worked for the other party. Then never said goodbye, just good luck then she hung up.

My son and I were blessed to have Jody represent us through an emotional child support case. Walking into the courtroom with her was with confidence. Her staff were always wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend Jody and choose her in the future if needed. Thanks for everything Jody.

I hired Jody Usow to handle my divorce case. She came highly recommended by an old friend. When I sat down to interview Jody, I quickly understood that she had a great deal of legal expertise, court experience, and the skill to be assertive without being harsh or loud. Her demeanor is always cool regardless of the pressure. Jody has the ability to get things done quickly in a highly professional manner. Jody is a problem solver and listens extremely well. I would highly recommend Jody to anyone.
