About me


Rhonda Wood received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Indianapolis.  She practiced in Surgery, mainly in the operating rooms, at Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital until she expanded her career and went to law school.  Rhonda graduated from Indiana University School of Law in 2010 with a Health Law Concentration curriculum.  Together with her medical background and her law education being focused in the area of health law, Rhonda has the medical and legal skills that allow her to understand her client’s cases and know what legally needs to be accomplished to have a successful outcome.


Rhonda joined Stewart & Stewart’s medical malpractice team in 2010.  She primarily represents patients that have been injured while in the care of doctors, nurses, hospitals, and nursing homes.  Rhonda is also experienced in representing veterans that have been victims of medical malpractice at VA Hospitals.  She is licensed to practice before all Indiana Courts, including both the Northern and Southern Federal District Courts of Indiana.
