About Karen

Learn Karen’s areas of practice.

I have been licensed to practice law since 2004.  My primary focus is on divorce and family law but have experience in criminal law, real estate transactions, business formation, estate planning and general litigation.


My goal as your attorney is provide a flexible and cost effective solution based upon the unique facts of your own case.  Sometimes litigation warrants an aggressive approach.  If that is the case, I will take any steps necessary to protect your rights and interests. 


Our office is located in Latham, New York in the County of Albany.  However, the firm's geographic practice area covers most of upstate New York including the counties of Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Warren, Fulton, Montgomery, Greene, Schoharie, Columbia, Ulster and Dutchess.  


If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at Rhoades, Cunningham & McFadden, PLLC.  The firm telephone number is.

Helped with my divorce
Karen was an excellent lawyer, she has my best interests in her mind. She did her best knowing that I had a very slow pace judge in my case. I recommend for anyone if god forbids a divorce is eminent.

Legal Services for a Divorce
Karen Rhoades is a wonderful attorney and I highly recommend her. The minute I met with Karen, I knew she was the right attorney for me. Karen drafted a settlement agreement and the divorce papers in a short period time. Karen attended the court proceeding with me. She took her time and explained all documents to me thoroughly. She kept me well informed and up to date on all issues. Karen made a very stressful situation easier. Karen Rhoades is an excellent attorney.

Karen Rhoades review
I can't say enough about Karen's handling of my case. She was very knowledgeable, understanding and very caring, a trait not always seen in an attorney. When facing hard legal matters with so many emotions running high she did all she could to reassure me that everything was going to be OK. She is not only my lawyer but I will always regard her as a good friend for showing so much compassion and professionalism.

I Would Not Recommend This Attorney At All.
Karen Rhoades made promises to me that she did not keep. I found her to be very inadequate as an attorney and did not feel she was a good litigator in the court room. She charged me for services she did not provide. I was very disappointed with her to say the least and would not recommend this attorney at all.
