"Christopher Podoll was Great! I had never been to court for custody or anything else and he made me feel comfortable and confident. My custody case was settled in mediation and I got exactly what I wanted without a long drawn out court case. Christopher fought hard for me and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a bulldog! I am very pleased!” ionia michigan

He helped me to stay focused on the larger picture, and he worked on my case in a caring and timely manner." Grand Rapids Michigan
I've been working with Attorney Chris Podoll for pretty much all of 2021 on my ridiculously difficult custody case in Van Buren County. I've worked with a few different attorneys over the years, and I just want to say that Chris is the absolute best that I've ever worked with. Van Buren is a really difficult county to navigate and to say that I started out working with Chris in a pretty demoralized state would be an understatement. Once I found him, however; everything changed. If you're someone who really feels like you need an advocate for you and your kids, look no further. He is honest, easy to talk to, understanding, and yet he's also tough as nails when the situation calls for it. I seriously cannot recommend him enough!
Wow! This is my second review to give credit where credit is due. Attorney Podoll has consistently acted as if he’s known my family for twenty years. While he may not be as prompt in returning my novel length emails (hey, I’m new to this process and have been divorcing my divorce for six years), or strategizing with me before the hearings, after working with him I can set my anxiety aside and be assured that he has done his homework. Attorney Podoll is spot on… he even expresses pertinent info like my kids’ ages and my diagnosis. In meetings, he sometimes employs a self-deprecating technique that works brilliantly to lighten the tone and by doing so, establish his place as a leader during negotiation. He’s quick to call me out on my stubborn ways of talking endlessly; I do reckon that Attorney Podoll owns some semi permeable strainer that extracts the objective from my charged stories. There is no room for the crazy ex stigma in his world and we are all treated as equals.

Attorney Chris Podoll handled my divorce case recently. I would recommend Chris’s counsel on these matters. He took the time to listen to my concerns and opinions. He offered sage advice prior to trial activities through the final judgment. He demonstrated compassion and strong knowledge in obtaining my optimal outcome. He is well versed in the law. I was able to ease any concerns that I had quickly with Chris. He proved to be a tough negotiator. Chris is trustworthy, thorough and knowledgeable. You want him on your side.
I hired Chris after five years of interviewing many different attorneys; now we begin work to get a much needed divorce from my divorce. After talking to him a few times, two words come to mind: intellect and earnestness. Despite the fact that we won't change what happened previously, I have few doubts moving forward that Chris is capable of a feat that has seemed many times to be very far away.
Attorney Christopher Podoll has been one of the most exceptional Attorney’s I’ve ever dealt with. He is very straightforward and honest. He listens with understanding. He is very wise. I’ve had some scary moments and with his amazing communication skills and strategic ways of thinking, he was able to guide me and give guidelines and put things in proper prospective for me. More importantly to me he cares about the outcome. Kalamazoo
