Rondi graduated from Gonzaga School of Law magna cum laude in 2002.  While attending Gonzaga Law, Rondi served as SBA President, an Associate Editor for the Law Review and was a Thomas More Scholar.  Rondi received the  Morey Maurice Award for Service and Leadership, won the Best English Brief Award at an International Moot Court Competition in Washington, D.C. and was honored by the Gonzaga Public Interest Law Project for her volunteer work with neglected and abused children.  During law school Rondi worked prosecuting cases as a Rule 221 in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho where she was born and raised.

Rondi is married with two young children, two yellow labs and a fish.  She enjoys spending time with her family on the lake, traveling and diving.  Rondi met her husband while at Gonzaga Law School and the two were both offered positions with the Washington State Attorney General’s Office in 2002.  Rondi was promoted to Chief of the Labor and Industries Section of the Attorney General’s Office in 2007, before deciding to leave the office for private practice.  Her husband, David Turplesmith, is now a Judge at the Washington State Office of Administrative Hearings.  In 2008, Rondi Thorp left her position as Assistant Attorney General and formed a partnership with former fellow Assistant Attorney General, Stephen Meyer.  In 2011, the partners purchased a building for future expansion of the law firm.  Rondi enjoys litigation and trial work, but she says the best part of her job is “helping regular people stand up against big corporations in court.”
