Biography

Rod has represented family law clients for over thirty-two years in complex property settlements, spousal maintenance matters, custody cases, and basic divorces. While he believes in seeking mediated resolutions to his cases, Rod has extensive experience in Minnesota's appellate and district courts. Named a Super Lawyer in Mpls-St. Paul Magazine every year since 1998, he has also been named as one of Minnesota's Top 40 Family Law Super Lawyers, and one of its top appellate lawyers in similar surveys. In 2007, Rod was honored with the ongoing designation of "AV-Preeminent" by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest ethical rating that an attorney can achieve. He has presented at several seminars and Continuing Legal Education courses including "Effective Marital Dissolution Practice" and has been a speaker at the Minnesota Family Law Institute. Rodney is past president of the American Cancer Society in Hennepin County, a 1989 cum laude graduate of William Mitchell College of Law and a 1986 graduate of St. Olaf College.
