About us

Since 1960, our commitment to integrity and intentionally crafted values has made us one of West Michigan’s most respected law firms.  Our culture is unique: not only do our clients benefit from large firm legal services but, at Rhoades McKee, all of our attorneys participate in a collaborative interdisciplinary team, which allows us to identify additional concerns, outline options, and guide clients through potential outcomes, while minimizing future legal entanglements.


Our Story

Like many West Michigan businesses, our story begins with an entrepreneurial spirit. In 1959, founder Dale Rhoades served in the city attorney’s office while moonlighting at his part-time law practice. Over time, additional attorneys joined his practice and he left the city attorney’s office. In 1986, the law firm experienced significant growth with the addition of another thriving practice, Mohney, Goodrich and Titta. Now, over 50 years since its inception, Rhoades McKee offers over 25 legal practice specialties in three locations and our attorneys continue to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.

In 1959, a young Dale Rhoades founded a part-time law practice on the corner of Division and Burton.

Within a year, Dale devoted his efforts full time to the development and growth of the law firm.

In 1986, Mohney, Goodrich and Titta joined the law firm in the Waters Building.

Over 50 years later, the firm refreshed their brand and relocated to a new office at River Front Plaza.

In January 2015, the firm expanded legal services to Holland by opening a new office.

Our attorneys understand the legal importance of identifying, investigating and responding to potentially overlapping issues for each client’s case. We use an interdisciplinary team approach that allows us to maximize our knowledge and experience. By doing so, not only are we able to identify additional concerns for our clients, but also outline their options and guide them through the outcomes.
