At Fowkes Rodkey — every case is personal.
Founding partner George Fowkes graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 1962 after serving as an officer in the United States Air Force. Following his service to his country, Mr. Fowkes represented and counseled national and local businesses and individuals in a wide variety of matters ranging from business formation and corporate governance to complex commercial litigation, including trade secret and intellectual property, as well as in personal matters such as family law, wills, trusts and estates. Mr. Fowkes spent his initial years practicing in a downtown law firm before he established his own practice in Oakmont, PA 35 years ago in 1985. Mr. Fowkes and his law partner of many years, Michael G. Winklmann, practiced under the firm name of Fowkes & Birmingham. Mr. Winklmann, a 1984 graduate of the Duquesne University of Law School focuses on a general practice of law that includes, business formation, contracts, family law, wills trusts and estates (planning and administration) and criminal law. In 2009 Joseph F. Rodkey, Jr. came on board with Fowkes & Birmingham as a partner and the firm name was changed to Fowkes Rodkey.
