Awesome representation
After a very traumatic car accident, I reached out to Bye, Goff and Rhode. Dean Rhode took my case and for the next 18 months fought for me. He helped me through the process and made sure my questions were answered. Laura and Judy we're also very helpful and supportive during what was the most stressful time in my life. I highly recommend this firm.

Auto vs cycle accident
Mr Rohde and his team helped me with my settlement from my cycle/auto accident. When I had any questions or concerns they was always very prompt with a response if I needed to leave a message. 98% of the time I always spoke to one of them. Dean helped me get everything taken care of and there was no need for me to stress or worry that I would not get what I deserved. I would not hesitate to have Dean and his team represent me again if the situation would ever arise. I will recommend him to anyone if I ever have some one ask who I would suggest.

Total exellence!
Dean Rohde, from Bye, Goff and Rohde (BGR) Trial Lawyers, and his staff were awesome. They represented me in 2 separate auto accidents, which were 3 years apart and not my fault. The insurance company would not settle with me and jerked me around. I called BGR and they came to me and there was no money I had to put up at all. Once I was represented by BGR, the insurance companies settled, as they knew Dean would take my case to trial. You need to be patient, though, as the process takes 1 to 2 years, but the wait is worth it.
