About Me

Rodolfo Herrera has been working in the field of family law since 2006. Before passing the California State Bar exam in 2007, Mr. Herrera worked as a law clerk for a prestigious family law firm in San Diego. During this time, Mr. Herrera gained extensive experience in family law matters.


After passing the Bar Exam, Mr. Herrera moved on to become an associate attorney with the firm, during which time he quickly became experienced at litigating in Superior Courts throughout California.


Mr. Herrera then practiced family law for two years before eventually opening his own firm, Herrera Law Firm in 2008. Currently, HLF is committed to giving back to the community by helping San Diego residents work through their family law disputes.


Mr. Herrera is a San Diego native who attended high school at Army & Navy Academy in Carlsbad, California and earned his law degree from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, located in San Diego. Additionally, Mr. Herrera's impressive education includes a Bachelor of Science from California Polytechnic State University (in San Luis Obispo, CA.) and a Master's Degree from Drexel University (in Philadelphia, PA).
