describe their experience with us.
Casey Duncan
If I could leave more than 5 stars I would.  Mr. Rhodes was great, easy to talk to, professional, prompt, friendly, attentive and more.  I could go on and on but he is definitely the first lawyer I will go to any time I need one.

Highly recommended!
Jason Conner

I was falsely accused of a crime and Mr. Rhodes with his vast experience and knowledge helped to keep me from even being charged.  I would highly recommend him for all your legal needs.

Luke Olmstead

Mr. Rhodes throughout the entire endeavor has been nothing but kind, personable, and professional.  He truly wants to help and goes out of his way to do so.

Austin Welder

David Rhodes provided excellent representation for my family.  He was extremely responsive, gave excellent advice and secured a very positive outcome.


Highly recommended.

Maggie B.

David Rhodes and his secretary, Leane, were both amazing and treated me like family from Day 1.  With my slew of misdemeanor charges, I was very scared and worried, but they both put me at ease immediately and assured me that everything was going to be okay.  And they were right!


David Rhodes helped me get off with community service and I will be forever grateful to him and Leane.  Mr. Rhodes was very attentive and was in touch with me frequently to check up on me and keep me updated on my case.  I can't thank you guys enough for everything you did for me and how at ease you made me feel through this touch time.
A. Bailey

I would like to thank this man for everything he has done and is doing to help me and my family.  

When this man tells you he will do something he gets it done 150%.  One of the best lawyers in the New River Valley.

If you're looking for someone who cares just as much as you, then this is your lawyer.  Thank you Mr. Rhodes you are truly a blessing.

Shamica Morton

I received a ticket while traveling through Virginia.  I was immediately on the phone trying to find the best attorney to represent me.  We live in Texas and there was no way I could commute back to address this issue.

David Rhodes was amazing!  I spoke with several attorneys and he understood that I made a mistake but was not at all judgmental.

He represented my case from the start to end and even followed up when my 6 month probationary period was over and my ticket was dismissed.

Ken Wallach

I cannot say enough good things about Dave (and Leane).  Dave is a superb attorney.  They communicate very well with the client and address all questions promptly, completely and courteously!

Dave and his staff are not only a terrific law firm that can be counted on to do a great job, but I also now consider them as friends, as well!

I strongly recommend David Rhodes!

Francisca Patino

Let me just say how THANKFUL I am for Mr. David Rhodes.  I'm not from the area but needed an attorney and found him.

Called his office and after his secretary had him call me and in less than 10 min he contacted me and headed straight to the jailhouse to speak with my husband.  Super quick!  The very next day my husband was released.

Mr. Rhodes is very nice, caring, and explains everything perfectly.  Honestly I couldn't have chosen anyone better.  I needed someone to help me asap and he was there for my husband and I.  Very thankful for him!  I highly recommend him as an attorney!


Sherry Chandler

David Rhodes and his staff are friendly and professional.  From the very beginning Dave talked with my daughter about representing her in a traffic case.

She was so nervous, but he treated her with respect and showed that he genuinely cared about her situation.  He explained to her what to be prepared for through the whole process.

To our surprise he was able to have her case completely dismissed.  He will definitely be who I refer all of my family and friends to in the future.
Christian Betancourt

From start to end, Attorney David Rhodes and his assistant were extremely kind and helpful.  He made the court process easy to understand and was optimistic throughout the case.

He was able to get the charges reduced and dismissed. 

Overall it was a great experience working with them and I would recommend stopping by his office.

Kristin Jenkins

I highly recommend Attorney David Rhodes.  It was obvious to me that he genuinely cared for my son.  He knew that he was a good kid and understood how much he stood to lose for making a poor decision one evening while out with friends.

He fought for and won the best possible outcome for him.

He was very responsive and even answered his emails after hours when he knew my son was upset.  Our family will be forever grateful to Mr. Rhodes.

Conner Turpin

David Rhodes was a phenomenal lawyer for me in my recent legal issues.  He helped me out in more ways than with just legal issues.

I would highly recommend using his services if you need legal assistance.

I can't thank him enough for everything he did for me.  Very friendly and cares about your specific circumstances even with a heavy case load he manages with his staff.

Stuart Bush

Mr. Rhodes represented my grandson and in so doing helped us through a difficult situation.  Over my life span I've been represented by many different attorneys with different specialties.  I know when an attorney is professional and works for the benefit of his client and not for the benefit of his wallet.

I would grade Mr. Rhodes as superior.

Redd Thoo

The best law firm out of Montgomery County area.  They are very professional and will get the job done.  

David W. Rhodes is a very good lawyer and is very accurate with how he handles cases.  More than likely you will get the best outcome or decision made in your favor.

Again I recommend if you're looking to get your speeding ticket reduced or a petty misdemeanor taken care of this is the place for you!

Phong Dang

I got into some trouble when I went to the area to see the area.  Luckily I found Attorney David Rhodes and asked him for some help.  The price was reasonable.  He and his assistant helped me out a lot and made the process really easy.  He got the case dismissed and I didn't have to come back to the area to attend the hearing since I lived so far away.

Overall it was a great experience working with Attorney David Rhodes and his assistant.  If you ever have any trouble down in the area I would recommend you give him a call.

Stephanie Albert

David Rhodes went above and beyond for several cases in multiple counties for me.  I had multiple felonies, and misdemeanors and walked away Felony free and minimal misdemeanors, and several counties I walked away clear of any charges.

He's well known and respected throughout the judicial system.  I recommend his services for anyone facing any type of jail time, or for anyone falsely accused because he will not give up on his clients until they are satisfied!

Thanks a million, Dave!

Matthew Workman

Mr. Rhodes goes to bat for his clients and keeps his clients informed.  Mr. Rhodes being in prior military service himself is great for veterans and any of those currently serving.

Furthermore, his paralegal Leane is also very helpful and willing to go above and beyond to help... I highly recommend them!

Mimi Trusiano

David Rhodes was such an extremely helpful and kind human.  He has his clients' best interests at heart and works extremely hard for their cases.

I was so pleased with him and the way he communicated with me.  He was really great about explaining things and made my first time in court easy to understand.

I am forever grateful for the time he put into my case and for helping me so much.  I would most definitely recommend Dave to represent you.

Elizabeth Keifer


I was in such a bind with a couple of tickets in Giles County, VA and I live states away.  Leane, his assistant, put me at ease with her knowledge and explanation of the issues at hand.  She told me Mr. Rhodes would call me back, and of the numerous attorneys who I was promised a call back from, Mr. Rhodes is the only attorney that did call me back.  He gave me step by step plan of how to handle my problem and without asking for any money, told me that I did not need an attorney to handle it.

10 STARS !!!

Here's What Ryan Mitchell had to say ...

"I hired Mr. Rhodes to defend me in a reckless driving charge.  I am from Washington, D.C. so I received in the mail several attorneys' information for representation purposes.  However Mr. Rhodes came highly recommended through a family friend and I added him to my list of calls to make.  

Having spoken with several of the other attorneys and with Mr. Rhodes I found him to be the one that was openly honest with the discussion of my charges and what my consequences could be; no beating around the bush; no "BS."

My gut told me that he was the one and was he!  I could not ask for a better attorney to represent me.

He was timely, informative, skilled, confident, trust worthy and on point.  I also observed in the courtroom the respect many had for him.

An additional plus was his administrative assistant Ms. Leane Yopp.  She was very pleasant, patient and helpful when I called for information.

I would hire Mr. David Rhodes to defend me in any legal proceedings I was involved in if I could.  I would without any hesitation recommend Mr. Rhodes to anyone and be confident in knowing he would put his "best foot forward" for you.  Mr. David Rhodes is the man!"
