About Me

People, clients and courts trust me because I do what I say, handle problems as they come in, listen critically, and have a bulldog temperament well suited for communication, argument and litigation in the legal arena. With thousands of court appearances and recorded interviews under my belt in private practice, I know when and how to listen, question, speak and argue. Aside from my acedemic background, I have a sucessful background in sports, specifically wrestling, rugby and jujitzu. I practice law the same way I play sports: thoughtfully and unrelenting pursuing the goal.

  • Alexander F Savojni

    While many attorneys over promise to get a client and then under deliver, Robert does what he says. He is a bulldog of a lawyer dedicated to his clients. His ability to listen and relate enables him to be a counselor not only in law but also in life. Their is no judgement of his clients, only a desire to help them get through all of their difficulties.

  • Thomas David Coe

    Robert Rhodes knows the details of the law and the criminal justice system. He received mentorship from one of the best in the business during his early years and now has gained years of experience in this complex area of law. His thorough knowledge of the law and the system combined with his meticulous preparation has allowed him to earn great results for his clients. These results include having the State agree not file charges, favorable plea bargains and jury trial victories. For these reasons, I endorse Mr. Rhodes as a great attorney that will defend you with excellent results.
