Mark L. Rhoades

Mr. Rhoades is an accomplished trial attorney and litigator with over 20 years of complex commercial litigation experience in trial and appellate courts around the country.

Following graduation from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Mr. Rhoades moved to Philadelphia to attend law school. After graduating cum laude from Temple University School of Law and completing a judicial clerkship, he joined one of the city’s largest and most respected law firms - Blank Rome - as an associate. With his years of “big firm” training, he learned not just how to be a litigator but also how to be a trial lawyer.

After being elected to the Blank Rome partnership, Mr. Rhoades decided to use his training and experience to break out of the restraints of a large firm and start litigating in a more entrepreneurial manner. He created RHOADES LLC to offer clients the highest caliber of legal services often times without cost to the client.

Based upon confidential reviews submitted by lawyers and judges familiar with his over two decades of litigation experience, Mr. Rhoades has achieved the rating of “Preeminent” by the well-respected lawyer review publication Martindale Hubbell.

He is admitted to practice in the state and federal courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey and has appeared in various other courts throughout the country.

Mr. Rhoades is a private pilot, enjoys anything outdoors including golf, motorcycles, skiing and spending time with his family. He is also a Level 1 United States Lacrosse coach and has coached his daughters' lacrosse teams in Haddonfield, New Jersey, for the past three years.
