  • 5.0/5.0 Review for Mr. William J. Podolsky III by a Sole Practitioner on 06/29/13 in Real Estate

    I have known "Josh" for at least 6 years and have had the opportunity to practice with and against him in several matters. He is an excellent lawyer and does a great job for his clients. He deserves an AV rating, in my opinion.
