Jordan Rhodes is an Associate at Allensworth, and recently graduated summa cum laude with his J.D. from Texas Tech School of Law—the highest possible honor. In his role at Allensworth, he wears a variety of hats as he supports attorneys and clients across the firm’s litigation practice.
There is no shortcut to being effective in this role. Jordan’s work ethic, methodical approach, and sheer dedication allow him to distill the most important details and documents as he works toward a thorough understanding of each client’s specific problems and objectives before developing a strategy and putting it into action. This promotes prospects for the best available outcome in the most efficient way possible.
Particularly in construction law, young associates are the backbone of a firm’s operation, and a critical part of the engine. Construction law is a complicated practice that demands mastery, organization, and control of massive amounts of detail, often under pressure and in connection with hotly disputed circumstances. For senior attorneys and partners to think strategically and work as effectively as possible, they rely on young lawyers like Jordan, who have recall of the finer details of the case or contract and can put their finger on a critical provision or holding within a moment’s notice.
Jordan is also a skilled, concise, and effective communicator—fueled largely by his excellent writing and dedication to research and analysis of the law. By integrating and deploying these capabilities in his day-to-day work, he helps ensure that the team at Allensworth will arrive at the correct answer and express it clearly. From drafting substantive pleadings and motions to strategic memos that further his client’s interests, Jordan takes pride in arriving at the correct conclusion in the most persuasive manner possible.
Outside of the office, Jordan is an enthusiastic golfer with a 9.3 handicap and an outdoorsman who has camped at 12,000 feet in Arapaho National Forest and walked the Great Wall of China. These days he enjoys going on runs/walks with his girlfriend and his dog, Lola. He’s also an avid (and often disappointed) Longhorn sports fan.
