How Do You Pronounce Your Name?
I get this one a lot. Vonda (just Rhonda but with a “V”) McLeod (MacLoud). Easy enough. What’s next?
What are your qualifications?
I graduated from Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in 1994 after receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Judson College. Following graduation from law school, I served a judicial clerkship with Hon. Eugene W. Reese, Circuit Judge for the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit. Upon completing this clerkship, I began practicing with Shinbaum, McLeod & Campbell in the area of consumer bankruptcy and practiced there until December, 2011 when I opened my own office. Today, I am licensed to practice law in the state and federal courts of Alabama, am a member of the Alabama State Bar Bankruptcy and Commercial Law Section and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. I am a member of the 2007 Local Rules Committee for the Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Alabama, former adjunct professor at Auburn University Montgomery and a former panel member on WAKA Channel 8’s LawLine.
For the past 20 years, I have played in several local bands and toured all over the United States. I have played bass and samples in Ed Kemper Trio, a band that released music on two labels and were even featured in the documentary People Will Eat Anything which debuted at the Capri Community Theater in Montgomery, Alabama. Since then I have played bass in El Chupa Cobras, played with my husband Jeff McLeod in 4595 and No and also created electronic music under the moniker Zombies Matter.
