During 1960-61, Strodel served as an Assistant State’s Attorney, Peoria County, Illinois, and was cited by the Illinois State Bureau of Narcotics control for his service in the area of drug control.
He has instructed in Business Law at Bradley University, Peoria.
In 1959, Strodel became co-chairman of the Peoria branch of the Illinois Committee for Modern Courts, a state civic effort to adopt a new Judicial Article amending the Illinois State Constitution of 1874. The public referendum that year failed. However, it was revived for the 1962 general election. Strodel became the Peoria area leader for this referendum issue contributing close to 1000 hours of personal time, and making over 50 oral presentations to local civic organizations, the pencil and media press and smaller groups. The referendum passed it by a strictly constitutional margin, a two-thirds vote. It was adopted statewide by a constitutional 51% plus vote and became effective in 1964.
The entire judicial system of Illinois was changed and brought into modern context. Prior there was no chain of command from the Supreme Court down. Each county court of any kind was literally a “barony” and responsible only to the local electorate. Some courts did not require lawyer-trained judges.
As a result of his service in the Judicial Article referendum, Strodel became an active member of the Illinois State Bar Association Committee for the implementation of the Article as to Magistrate Courts.
Strodel became a Founding Sponsor of the national civil Justice Foundation in 1984. He was elected a Trustee, 1996-1997. He was elected Secretary/Treasurer, 1998-1999. He was elected to his first term as President, followed by a second term, for the years 1998-2000.
The Foundation is a not-for-profit, IRS Sec. 501(c) (3) organization founded for the purpose of granting money grants to organizations over the nation in their quest to prevent consumer injuries and preserve the civil justice system. In the first 14 years it made grants exceeding $1,000,000.00 to over 100 grass roots consumer advocacy organizations nationally.
He is a former member and lecturer for the American College of Legal Medicine and the American Society for Law and Medicine.
Strodel is a Charter Master of the Bench, Abraham Lincoln Inn, Peoria, American Inns of Court Association.
He served many years as Peoria area chairman of the University of Michigan Law School Fund.
