Serving South Florida
(24/7 Free Consultation)
Glenn R. Roderman hails from the town of Port Jervis, New York, but he has been a resident of South Florida for several decades. Mr. Roderman obtained his Juris Doctorate in Law from Stetson University in 1972, and he has been practicing law in the state of Florida since that time. Mr. Roderman was admitted to the Florida Bar and to the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida, in 1972. In 1975, Mr. Roderman was admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Mr. Roderman has over 50 years in the criminal justice system in Florida. He has served as a state prosecutor and municipal judge for several years in the cities of Davie, Florida, and North Lauderdale, Florida. Along with his own clients Mr. Roderman is available to other attorneys as a mentor or coach on any or all of their criminal cases. He continues to serve as a respected legal analyst for ABC News Channel 10, WPLG, in Miami.
It is this experience, Mr. Roderman says, that matters as much as any law degree when it comes to representing someone in a criminal court. Mr. Roderman believes many newer attorneys seem to have given less credence to experience, believing that education, alone, qualifies them to practice good law. As he says in this video from his Spoken Law series, Mr. Roderman points out experience and education are both required for qualified legal representation.
Mr. Roderman’s early criminal defense experience included handling a number of organized crime and RICO defenses, working with a law firm in Hollywood, Florida, where one of the clients included the reputed Meyer Lansky. Recalling those days, Mr. Roderman said his experience in the State Attorney’s office proved very valuable in helping build defenses for his clients. He recounted these days in a recent interview.
Mr. Roderman’s decades of devoted legal work have earned him Martindale-Hubbell’s AV Peer Review Rating of 5.0, the highest rating offered.
Mr. Roderman is also a recipient of the Barry Markman Memorial Award.
