I’m Garry Rhoden. I grew up in a small town in the rural south that taught hard work and common sense. Before entering the legal profession, I worked as a laborer in the phosphate mines and loading docks, lifeguard, waiter, and even as a janitor. Since those days, however, I have 25 years of experience in the legal profession, primarily working on cases involving nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. I defended these facilities at first, but after seeing the injustices done, and my own father victimized, I knew I needed to switch sides, fill a need, and do what I could to help those victimized by big business and the investors who operate most of these facilities in the United States. Since then, and for 20 years now, I have represented victims of nursing home and assisted living facility abuse and neglect. I’m also proud to say that I’m one of the few attorneys in the country who has tried and arbitrated to verdicts on elder abuse and neglect cases in multiple jurisdictions.
My litigation experience is broad, and over my career, I’ve handled cases involving domestic relations, criminal defense, contract disputes, class actions, real estate disputes, business disputes, the sale of unsuitable investment securities to investors, professional negligence involving attorneys, hospitals, medical clinics, and physicians, and cases involving defective products such as medical devices, agricultural equipment, pharmaceuticals, and recreational and industrial products. I also take on personal Injury cases.
I’ve recovered tens of millions of dollars in claims and judgments for my clients, taken or defended hundreds of depositions, been lead counsel in over 150 hearings and mediations, and served as trial counsel in numerous trials and arbitrations.
