Gordon Rhea Wins USVI Bar Association’s Highest Honor
RPWB of counsel attorney Gordon Rhea was honored with the highest award during the Virgin Islands Bar Association’s annual meeting on December 8, 2023. The award ceremony highlighted Rhea’s dedication to the legal profession and his commitment, dedication and valuable contributions to the people of the Virgin Islands.
The Winston A. Hodge Award for Public Service was established by the Board of Governors in 1997 to commemorate the exemplary legacy of Winston A. Hodge, a distinguished member who embodied the values of community service, commitment, and dedication to the legal profession. Known as the “Dean” of the Bar, Winston A. Hodge made significant contributions to bar activities and left a mark on the legal community.
The recipients of the award are individuals who have demonstrated the same ideals and commitment that the late Attorney Hodge stood for. By honoring those who follow in his footsteps, the award continues to celebrate and preserve the spirit of public service within the Virgin Islands legal community.
Rhea has handled a variety of complex civil and criminal cases in the U.S. Virgin Islands, including toxic torts, abusive tax shelters, business disputes, class actions and white-collar criminal matters. He splits his time between the islands and Mount Pleasant, S.C.
Outside of his legal practice, Rhea is an award-winning historian who has written eight books about the Civil War and Reconstruction.
