Best Decision
My brother and I hired the Law Office of Rodney W. Wickers to help protect our mother from the financial abuse of another family member. To say this was a delicate matter, is an understatement. I am grateful we hired Rod. It was the best decision. His entire team is very professional and has been on top of everything. The paperwork involved in our case would be daunting without true legal professionals, like Rod and his team. While the case is currently ongoing, I am very impressed with Rod’s subject matter knowledge and professionalism during all our court appearances. Rod is straightforward, knows the law and has our best interest at heart. He is fighting to protect our mom and for that I will always be grateful.

Divorce
Mr. Wickers handled my divorce which was finalized in March 2014. My ex was suing me for child support and spousal support and wanted to change child custody. Mr. Wickers was well versed in all areas of the divorce. Was able to have me awarded same custody of 50%, no spousal support and no child support. My ex's attorney played a lot of games but ended with the results I was looking forward to. Have spoken to too many people whose attorney did not fight for them and really ended up getting screwed by the time the divorce was finalized. Mr. Wickers worked hard for me and I am very happy with the end result! Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.
