I hired Agatha Rode to handle a child support case of mine a few years ago and I was more than satisfied with the outcome. Ms Rode did not just settle she fought for me through the whole process. I would not recommend anyone else but Agatha Rode to help you in your child support case. She kept me informed of everything that was happening with my case and we won because of hard work and dedication.

Agatha helped me through a very difficult divorce. I was divorcing after being married for over 30 years, wherein we accumulated multiple properties and extensive investment portfolios. Her extensive knowledge of the law, attention to detail, and her ability to negotiate these assets so that I gained the most favorable outcome was both unrivaled and very much appreciated. She has my highest recommendation.

My case involved Child Protective Services and a complaint against my Childcare Provider business. Agatha's experience with CPS got my business re-opened after being closed by CPS for 7 days.
