About me

People, clients and courts trust me because I do what I say, handle problems as they come in, listen critically and have a bulldog temperament well suited for communication, argument and litigation in the legal arena. With thousands of court appearances and recorded interviews under my belt in private practice, I know when and how to listen, question, speak and argue. Aside from my academic background, I have a heavy background in the sports of wrestling, rugby and jujitzu. I practice law the same way I play sports: my team and I engage in a thoughtful and unrelenting pursuit of the goal.

  • Laura Elizabeth Baier

    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Rhodes was able to negotiate a convoluted matter involving a special needs young adult. Mr. Rhodes was able to see both side of the issue and garner a result that was truly in the best interest of the vulnerable adult- and a win-win for the other parties.
