Dedication to Excellence, Committment to Clients

Rodney & Etter, LLC is a law firm comprised of a diverse group of lawyers with backgrounds in business, government, and science.  We practice in New Orleans and in Houston, and are recognized by peers and legal organizations across the United States for our outstanding record of successful settlements and litigation, the depth of our industry specific knowledge, and our delivery of prompt, efficient and positive results.

Our creative and energetic trial lawyers are adept in all matters pertaining to jury trials in urban courts across the United States, and maintain a practice focused primarily on business law, intellectual property law, and the defense of commercial, patent and environmental litigation.


Rodney & Etter, LLC prides itself on its ability to understand the history and cultural nuances of a community, and is often called upon to apply its unique perspective to complex cases requiring creative solutions. The members of the firm have an empathetic understanding of the history and cultures of urban communities, and have applied that understanding to the successful defense and resolution of several major environmental and contract litigation cases.

The commitment of our firm to the community goes beyond our legal work. Members of the firm have taken leadership positions on the creation of public projects, as diverse as the construction of the New Orleans Aquarium of the Americas, the renovation of its Downtown Development District, and providing pro bono services to artists and musicians, many of whom lived in public housing.


Beyond being one of the finest firms in the nation, Rodney & Etter, LLC is a SRMSDC-certified Minority Business Enterprise capable of helping your organization achieve its supplier development and diversity goals.

Our firm's own dedication to diversity is reflected by our involvement with Section 3, a mentoring program of the Housing Authority of New Orleans, our consistent efforts to contract Minority & Women Business Enterprises, and our co-sponsorship of the annual Lionel Collins Dinner, which commemorates the historic ruling in Chisom v. Roemer, 501 U.S. 380, 111 S.Ct. 2354 (1991), a landmark victory in the efforts to redistrict Louisiana, to which the firm's partners contributed.
