Attorney Marshall Rinderer opened his practice, Rinderer Law Firm, in Highland about a year ago, providing legal representation to those in the Highland area.

“I handle matters involving criminal law, business law, family law and estate planning,” he said.

Prior to hanging out his own shingle, Rinderer previously worked as an associate for Silver Lake Group Ltd., which had offices in Highland, Greenville and Litchfield.

When he’s not working, Rinderer enjoys reading spending time with his wife, Mallory Rinderer, playing with his dogs, and cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Blues.

Q: What would you say the best attribute of your business is?

A. As a Highland native, I am focused on providing the citizens of my hometown and the surrounding communities with legal representation in often stressful times. Knowing the local community and its residents provides me with the ability to focus on their unique needs.

Q: Name one thing that we may not know about your business.

A. We are in the process of remodeling, so the business itself is about to get a cosmetic overhaul. Interestingly enough, my grandparents, Norma Hotz and the late Henry Rinderer, used to operate The Red Lantern, a retail store selling jeans and T-shirts out of the building my wife and I now own. The Red Lantern was a part of their Hug’s Men and Boys Wear. Hug’s was located at where Lee’s Loans, Jewelry and More is currently, which is owned by my uncle, Lee Rinderer.

Q: What are some recent achievements or accomplishments your business has made?

A. Since I owe my clients a duty of confidentiality, I cannot get into the specifics of achievements the business has had. However, I have been able to become active in the Highland Chamber of Commerce, as well as being appointed to the Library Board of Trustees.

Q: Where do you see your company in five years, and what will you need to get there?

A: My goal has been and will always be to serve my clients and the Highland community as a whole. Hopefully, the Rinderer Law Firm will be a staple in the Highland area. The goal is when those in town think of a lawyer, Rinderer Law will be thought of in the same sentence as the other already successful lawyers in Highland. I am also hoping to be able to provide employment opportunities in the near future.

To achieve my goals, I will need to continue to provide professional legal services to my clients. I will also need continuing support from the Highland area that has already been shown to me.

Q: What do you like about being a part of the Highland community?

A: The sense of community that Highland provides its citizens is very rare to find. Being raised in Highland, I have seen first-hand the generosity of the Highland community to those in need.
