R. TRADER IS A LIFETIME RESIDENT OF BREVARD COUNTY, FL.

Rudi is  a lifetime resident of Brevard County and a second-generation attorney. Rudi grew up in Indialantic, Florida as the youngest of three boys. Rudi spent the majority of his childhood navigating the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean with his brothers— fishing, clamming, and harvesting oysters. When he wasn’t on the water, Rudi spent a lot of time in the law firm and knew at a very young age that he wanted to become an attorney just like his father.

In 1974, Rudi graduated from Melbourne High School and began college at the University of Central Florida. In 1981, Rudi graduated from the University of Central Florida and went on to law school at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, the first and only time he lived outside of Florida. Upon graduation from law school, Rudi immediately moved back to his beloved hometown and went into practice with his father. Today,  Rudi devotes much of his life to his law firm and clients and in his free time, he enjoys boating, golfing, and spending time with his family.
