With a passion for service, it was only natural that my career as a lawyer would focus on helping clients through life’s biggest challenges. Since first coming to New Orleans as a Hurricane Katrina volunteer, I have been committed to fighting for the people and communities of our region. Now with over a decade of experience, my legal career has focused on helping clients succeed, families thrive, and communities build.

Family law has always been at the heart of my practice. Early in my career, I established Louisiana’s first Family Law Help Desk at the Orleans Parish Civil District Court and later expanded the program in courts across Louisiana. As one of Louisiana’s Family Law leaders, I have the experience to help clients succeed in all types of Family Law matters.

Avvo Rating 10.0 Jonathan RhodesI also served as Director of the Louisiana Civil Justice Center, providing legal assistance to thousands of clients across Louisiana on issues including Family Law, Successions, Wills and Estates, Disability Claims, and Property Insurance Claims. With this diverse experience, I help clients strategize and plan across legal issues to make sure they have the best outcomes for themselves and their families.

Before joining LJB Legal, my passion for representing clients led me to form my own law firm, where I focused on Family Law, Consumer Rights, Small Business, and Real Estate. I successfully represent clients on a range of issues, from simple collaborative divorce to contested custody and appeals. Whatever your legal needs may be, I have the background to fight for your rights with compassion and care.

I am also committed to pro bono service, providing dozens of hours annually to help vulnerable clients, nonprofits, and businesses. I even won a national award from the Pro Bono Institute and was recognized by the Louisiana State Bar Association with an "Innovation Award" for our corporate partnership at the Family Law Help Desk in Orleans Parish. As your lawyer, I’m here to help you succeed and make sure our whole community can thrive.

When I am not advocating for clients, I enjoy time with my wife and three kids, whether we’re traveling, trying a new restaurant, or just running around to the kids’ events. I’m deeply involved in my community serving on numerous boards over the years, including as a Board Member of my Neighborhood Association, President of the Father’s Club at the Academy of the Sacred Heart, and as a Little League Baseball coach.
