Recommending Mr. Rhodes!
We have used Harrington-Rhodes as our real estate lawyers for years, both with purchases and refinancing. Chris' expertise and experience are matched by his transparency and honesty in all dealings. He has always been up front with costs, options and has given us invaluable recommendations. When we sit down at closings it's so reassuring to have these people on your side of the table, SO much more organized than the other lawyers we've done business with and their brain power is combined with a commitment to do "the right thing!"
