Mr. Rodriguez received his Bachelor of Arts Degree from John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He graduated Cum Laude and was awarded the Leonard E. Reisman Medal for Scholarship and Service. Mr. Rodriguez started his career in the courts as a Court Officer followed by a brief appointment to Court Clerk from 1977 to 1978. While working full-time at the Bronx Criminal Court, Mr. Rodriguez attended Seton Hall School of Law and obtained his Juris Doctor degree in 1978. Upon graduation from law school, Mr. Rodriguez worked as a Staff Attorney with Bronx Legal Services before going into private practice. Mr. Rodriguez is admitted to practice in the State of New York and in all four Federal District Courts. He has argued appeals before the Appellate Division and has appeared in many trial courts throughout New York State.
