Rodney has a bachelor's degree in psychology and a bachelor's degree in aquatic biology from the University of Texas at Austin, graduating in 1978. He attended law school at the University of Houston, graduating in 1984. Prior to entering law school, Rodney served as a state representative, first for Montgomery and Walker counties and after redistricting, a portion of Montgomery County. He initially started as a general practitioner handling civil and criminal matters. However, he quickly developed a bankruptcy practice, which flourished, and in 1992 he became a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee. As a Trustee, Rodney oversees hundreds of bankruptcy cases each year and administers the bankruptcy estates in order to recover assets and pay creditors.
