Attorney Rhoden was a complete package for my family. We have used her services for several situations including mom hired her for will planning, then she helped get mom moved to an assisted living, then she modified the will for mom. Then when mom's health failed she helped me as the power of attorney to follow the laws and get my responsibilities done. When mom passed away Bonnie helped me administer her estate which was more complicated than I imagined but the planning she did for mom made the process so much better. Now I have a brother working with her on a family law issue and I haven't even mentioned her husband Ken Rhoden who has 30 years litigating - he is fantastic representing folks in court. Wow. They make a great team and I can't overlook all the assistants who are attentive and fast and the other attorneys are helpful if Bonnie isn't available. I can't think of anything that could come up that I wouldn't go back to her or to another attorney in her firm. Just a great experience all the way around.

When I met Bonnie she presented as a friendly professional person. I didn't read "tough lawyer" at first. Once I needed a lawyer I called her and she took time on the phone to help me and I was able to get in for a free consult in 2 days (she stayed late for me). She listened to my situation, asked questions, and then asked me what I wanted from her. This surprised me - most lawyers bluster their way through to get your money. She was thorough and detailed. I told her I wanted her advice to decide what path to take to solve my legal problem. She did that. Then we started working. Over the next several months I saw that friendly personality but I also saw a tough advocate. She prepares fully and goes to court ready to represent you. I couldn't believe she was tough dog ready to hang on to that bone on my behalf. When I'm ready to talk about a will and those health care documents she says we all need I won't go anywhere else. Ten thumbs up for this attorney.

I did not feel rushed when I met with Ms. Rhoden. She spent over an hour with me even though her normal free consultation is an hour. She answered all my questions and made me copies of a few laws that I needed to be able to reference and that was before I decided to hire her. Once I did contract her to represent me she was in action lickety split and her support staff was very responsive. Not only did I get my paperwork quickly but my court date was arranged and my "issue" was resolved. I am so happy it is over. Do yourself a favor and call Bonnie - she can make family issues easier, talking about impending death of loved ones more comfortable, and she'll shoot straight with her advice and not overcharge you.
