  • Peter Lunt Ashman

    Jodi is a fantastic attorney. I have referred several cases to her and the clients have been very pleased with the results as well as with her as a person. I highly recommend her.

  • David A. M. Ware

    I endorse this lawyer. I always go to Jodi for issues involving hardship waivers for unlawful presence, removal, litigation and any border related issue. She is incredibly knowledgeable and can recite reams of removal precedent decisions by heart, like some know Shakespeare. If I were about to be deported, I would put my life in Jodi's hands in an instant.
