Jodie is very responsive. He listens, provides options and, most of all, works with us to find a workable solution. His depth of knowledge and exposure to a variety of issues has been a great benefit to us. Also, for me, the trait that I most appreciate and admire is his integrity. He provides sound legal advice and makes sure that I have a full understanding of the situation and the impact of our decisions.
