EXCELLENCE IN HIGH STAKES LITIGATION AND APPEALS THROUGH KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE, AND CREATIVITY.

Whether the particular matter on which I am working involves a trial, an appeal, or a transaction, I believe that the best way to provide valuable and effective representation to my clients is to (1) assist the client in identifying the objective or objectives to be accomplished, and (2) always maintain focus on those objectives. The client's objectives are paramount, and define success in the matter.  And, the success that I am able to achieve is always the result of care, attention to detail, creativity, and experience.

Excellent Lawyer
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Rudolph at a legal seminar. In speaking with him, I asked for his advice/opinion on a personal matter. Mr. Rudolph did not hesitate to offer his advice and the end result of my case was in my favor. Mr. Rudolph is very personable and kind~hearted. He also refused to accept any fees which I offered to pay him. He believes in helping those that are without financial means. Thank you Mr. Rudolph.

A great lawyer and a credit to the entire profession.
George is a top-flight attorney. I have a very good basis for comparison, and George C. Rudolph is in every way the best lawyer I have ever encountered. He is a master of his chosen specialty. He is kind, patient and understanding when working with you through the details of your legal matter. He keeps you up-to-date on the strategy, the developments, and he delivers his recommendations based on deep research and vast experience. When it comes to legal advice, you should always try to work with the best attorney. I'm lucky I did exactly that with George.

Excellent and Personable
Mr. Rudolph handled a case for me, which ended in settling out of court and not dragging a sensitive matter through the system. Mr. Rudolph is very knowledgeable and personable, and has sympathy and patience. I admire his work ethics, intelligence, as well as his leadership throughout the community. The outcome of my case was amazing and I owe it to his love of his practice, ethics, and an amazing lawyer.

George Rudolph Esq.
Mr. Rudolph is professional and experienced. He responds immediately to phone calls and emails and answered all of my questions. My case involved both child support and alimony. It is a sensitive and stressful experience yet Mr. Rudolph managed to make it as easy as possible on me the client with his extensive knowledge and over 30 years of experience in the legal field. If you want a lawyer who will fight for you and treat your case like it is his only one then you want to hire him.

A CLEAR AND SOLID PATH TOWARDS RESOLUTION
From the very beginning George kept us informed of options to take as well as the possible consequences thereof. His knowledge of corporate law reaches far and is very diverse to say the least; there was never a turn that he did not anticipate. George also kept us informed as to what expenses he was incurring on a regular basis so we would not spend any funds that were not necessary. George brought our lawsuit to a very satisfying end.

Great Attorney
I would hire George for any legal matter. He's knowledgeable, responsive and compassionate. I highly recommend him!
Posted by Lonnie | February 27, 2013
Simply the Best
Mr. Rudolph is extremely knowledgable in his areas of expertise, and the most responsive of any attorney I have ever dealt with. He takes a "no non-sense" approach to preserving, protecting, and furthering is client's interests. I would and do highly recommend him to anyone that has a need for legal representation. He may not be the least expensive attorney you can find. But as they say you get what you pay for, and it has been my experience....... he is worth every billable hour charged.
