After 10+ years of marriage and having an 18 month old baby, my wife decided she wanted to move on with her life as a single woman. So she filed for divorce on December 21st and made sure I was served on Christmas eve which started this nasty 2 year divorce & custoday process. I went through two very incompitent lawyers within 3 months of the filing who couldn't measure up to this high profile, most expansive lawyer she could get her hands on. Finally I was referred to Rod through a friend and he meet with me right away. He started asking the right questions about my case on our very first meeting, questions that the other lawyers didn't even brought up in 3 months of handeling my case. He took on my case right away and was on top of everything throughout the whole procedure all the way to the very end (almost 2 years) with complete professionalism, attentive attention to details and utmost respect and responsiveness. What really stood out for me about Rod was his eye for the fine details that he would search up on my case and ask many questions about them as if my case was his only case and he was spending all his time on it. He always offered very constructive advises but never pressured me to go against what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go specially with my child's custoday setup. We ended up wining the case in a very favorable ruling.
Even, five years later my Ex decided to take me to court again for many unreasonable requests and yet again I turned to Rod for his help and professional expertise. He took on my case again and six months later, with the same enthusiasm and hard work he won all the argument she had brought up against me in court.
Rod is the best there is and I would certainly recommend him to anyone going through what I had. He is a very hard working, very Knowledgeable lawyer with a no non-sense kind of attitude.

Rod Firooze was recommended by my original divorce attorney, (who had retired) to represent me in my final divorce settlement hearing. Rod was very responsive to my partiiicular settlement issues and brought his wealth of experience and expertise to the proceedings. I was particularly impressed by his professionalism and his excellent paralegal Nesa. I feel very fortunate to having been represented by such a competent attorney.

Rod handled a very complicated Health Care Directive issue for a client of ours. The client was pleased with his work as was I. I found Rod responsive and knowledgeable and willing to help even when no pay was involved..
