Rodney Law

Nearly three decades before New Mexico achieved statehood, Bernard Rodey stepped off a train from Boston onto the hot and dusty streets of his destination: Albuquerque, New Mexico. Mr. Rodey established his law practice in 1883. Little did he know he was on his way to creating what would become one of New Mexico’s oldest, largest and most highly respected firms. The law practice Mr. Rodey began in 1883 has grown into a firm of more than 65 lawyers and over 70 support professionals, with offices in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The journey from that first day to the 21st century is filled with stories of leadership, technical excellence, and effective client advocacy.

Being a good lawyer means different things to different people. Some would say it is being well educated, experienced, and tough in the courtroom. Others would describe a creative, client-oriented problem solver. At the Rodey Law Firm, we believe a good lawyer is all these things and more.

Good lawyers help their clients make wise choices. They cut through the complexities of a problem to find its core. They study that problem from different angles, turn it on its head, and ask “what if?” Then they focus their intellectual, legal and strategic skills on finding a solution efficiently and economically. Ultimately, good lawyers make a difference in the lives of their clients.

This approach is a long-established practice at the Rodey Law Firm. We think it is the essence of what makes us good at what we do.
