Jody did an excellent job on my case. She knew exactly how to deal with the issue at hand and was relentless in pursuit of victory.


Thank God someone referred me to Jody. She was very diligent, thorough, and professional. She wrote a brief to suppress the evidence and it was so effective that the prosecutor did not even try to refute her argument.

Needless to say Jody Stutsman Vaughan "doesn't play." We won! She's a fighter. She's smart. I highly recommend hiring her.
