Prior to founding AbstoneLalley, Inc., Rodney L. Abstone II had become a
trusted source for organizations seeking guidance on their most
crucial business decisions, from law firm growth strategy and lateral
partner search to succession planning. Also a nationally-recognized
expert on diversity in the legal and corporate worlds, Mr. Abstone
realized there was a need for a comprehensive consulting firm that
builds on his niche strengths and his unique talent for establishing
strong, long-lasting industry relationships.
In Mr. Abstone's partnership with Robert B. Lalley, AbstoneLalley's
complete strengths come into focus. With a rich business background
that includes senior-level experience in strategic planning, finance,
