After working in the legal industry for almost 10 years, I found Sodoma Law. This has been the perfect place to continue my personal and professional growth. I knew that the tenacious and fearless leaders and I were the perfect match, from the moment I stepped foot in the door. Working with a wonderful group of people, my “Sodoma family," is what I believe makes the firm successful. I strive to help our clients and work hard on their behalf every day.

Client Account Manager

Sodoma Law is more than a law firm, they’re my legal family. Our team helps me conquer the world! While you may think this sounds like an exaggeration, I believe that when we can turn a tumultuous situation into a healthy resolution, regardless of the Court’s involvement, the positive impact extends beyond our clients and into the greater community. I’m proud to work alongside such fearless, compassionate, and tenacious people every day.

I can be my best, professionally and personally, at Sodoma Law. I have had the opportunity to grow a great deal practicing with colleagues who inspire me to learn more and be more fearless in my practice. And, I have become a spouse and mother my family can be proud of by being successful in my career without sacrificing freedom and flexibility, which allows me to spend quality time with my family and be present at all the special moments that come along with raising a family.

Penelope L. Hefner
Principal and Attorney

People always ask me what I like the most about being a Family Law Attorney. The better question is, “What do I like most about being a family law attorney at Sodoma Law?” While I will always be passionate about my practice helping families, working with this team - my Sodoma Family - makes coming to work enjoyable. We work hard at improving our processes daily, we welcome growth and change, and we have a little fun along the way. We like to call it living “The Sodoma Way.”

Patra A. Sinner

The culture of Sodoma Law promotes professional and personal development for those fortunate to work here, and it's that balance that makes the Firm unique and special.  We all strive to be the best attorneys we can be in our chosen field, but we also have the support and encouragement to develop ourselves as people.  The Sodoma Way is more than just the practice of law, it's the practice of life.

The Sodoma Way

When I opened the doors to Sodoma Law in 2008, it was with the intention of building a different kind of firm. When I started to put together the team, I focused on creating a culture unlike any other I had encountered: a “firm family” that showed commitment to our clients, to our team and to our community. Over time, this concept has become known as “The Sodoma Way.”
