Mr. Rohde has the unique qualifications of not only being an excellent lawyer who knows estate and elder law, but he’s also has an excellent financial background… I believe he is also a CPA.
Having expertise in both areas made it possible to get through my families estate planning without the need to get the accountant involved. With both the legal and financial impact of our decisions readily available to us, we were able to quickly determine the best course of action for our situation.
Mr. Rohde is an expert at explaining complex situations in terms the layperson can understand. He took whatever time was necessary to be sure both my father and I understood every aspect of what we were doing. One of the most patient people I have ever met. I’ve recommended him to several friends who have all had similar experiences.
Many years later after my father had passed, the true value of what Chris did for us became clear. As grim as it may sound we were prepared (at least legally and financially) for my father’s death. I can’t thank him enough.

I found Chris lacking in empathy, tact and often unable to discern and navigate the sometimes challenging family dynamics involved in grief. He was difficult to work with and overly conservative in discerning matters and advising our family on different matters where there were "shades of gray." In these cases, he rarely showed practical or common sense. He refused to use conference calls to discuss matters with the Executor and heirs, which would have been very efficient having all parties present. Instead, he resorted to email communications - often instead of or in place of the Executor's "voice." In doing so, he seemed to create confusion, doubt, and uncertainty among the parties involved. He was unwilling to seek to understand or compromise, and showed little to no compassion during an extremely difficult time. In fact, his approach to the whole matter, IMHO, made a manageable situation complex, expensive and painful. and I hope this helps others in selecting a lawyer to work through probate, and encourages Chris to improve his quality of service when working with people...especially during times of deep grief.
