Robert Rode at Rode Law Firm front desk


Firm founder Robert L. Rode believes that the key to success as a trial lawyer is frequently a matter of getting to know and understand our clients, their injuries, and their needs. With more than 30 years, Mr. Rode has built his own practice based on that guiding principle, which he believes characterizes the firm today.

“I don’t believe most plaintiffs’ lawyers put in the kind of time that we put into cases. We spend several weekends here in the office when we know we’ve got a trial coming up. Trial work is not for lazy lawyers.”

Our focus in on the long-term recovery of our clients — both physically and financially. The Rode Law Firm is determined to secure recovery, even if it means taking the insurance company to court.
