The advice you need.  The advocacy you deserve.

The advice you need.  The advocacy you deserve.

Lynn W. Rhodes entered law school at the age of 49 after raising two sons and putting them through college.  By this time, she had worked and traveled the world – living in ten states and traveling abroad.  She had served as a pastoral minister and youth minister in Virginia, worked as a long-distance telephone operator, ran a cattle ranch in Minnesota, served as a payroll supervisor at a community hospital and worked in the accounting department of a major electronics firm.  Before she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1992 and went to law school in 1995, she had been married and divorced, and had lived in the Washington DC area,  including Virginia and Maryland, as well as Michigan, Minnesota, Georgia, California, Nevada and Oregon.

Since she had lived through many of the recent cases in law school, Lynn could relate to the issues presented and feels compelled to give the law meaning to everyday people.  In a lot of cases, clients try to put logical meaning into the words of the law.  The truth is that the words become part of a new language in a legal context.  Lawyers serve as translators who can help you make sense of these legal meanings.   Lynn's scope of representation includes:

- Representing divorced and unmarried parents in custody, visitation and child support matters

- Helping parents who have been deprived of their children to develop court-ordered case plans

- Obtaining injunctions or protective orders for victims of domestic violence

- Developing elder care plans through will preparation and estate planning

- Defending clients against felony drug charges

As an attorney with 12 years of trial experience, Lynn takes the time to define the terms, parameters and issues to be presented in a court of law.   Her goal is to make sure that clients have a basic understanding of what's going to happen.   The outcome can never be guaranteed but it can be controlled.  For example, if you negotiate a settlement agreement outside of court, you have control over the outcome.  However,  once you get into court, you’ve lost control of the situation and the judge has the power to decide the ultimate outcome.

As a member of American MENSA,  Lynn feels her natural curiosity helps her in her chosen career. As an attorney with an inquiring mind, she sees matters from a unique perspective.  Her credentials include: Read less
