“I always seek to find the most effective and the most efficient solution for my client's needs. Sometimes that requires using bulldog tactics, but sometimes that requires finessing their case through the system.”

Attorney Roderick Marx is uniquely qualified to handle all aspects of divorce and family law matters. Having represented over 10,000 clients during his career of over two decades, Roderick Marx is among the most prolific divorce attorneys in the state.

Attorney Roderick Marx received his Law Degree from the Western Michigan University Cooley School of Law in 1991. He has been serving the Dallas-Fort Worth community in private practice since 1992, when he opened his first law-office devoted solely to the area of Divorce and Family Law.

Early in his career he observed that many people were in need of legal help who earned too much income to qualify for legal-aid, but who could not afford the large retainers that traditional firms demanded. They were simply falling through a gap. Devoting his career to the needs of those falling into this gap, he has continually been seeking ways to provide legal services better, faster, and cheaper. As part of this endeavor, Roderick Marx was featured in the WFAA Channel-8 mini news series, “The Business of Divorce.” He as also been the invitee of a State Bar of Texas committee to participate in discussions about providing affordable quality legal care. As an early proponent of filing divorce documents with the courts by electronic means, he has been featured by the Dallas County District Clerk’s office as the “E-Filer of the Quarter.”
