Amazing lawyer!
Mr. Rodriguez is sent from God above. He was extremely knowledgeable and respectful throughout the whole process. He always took the time to answer my questions about how things where going and make sure that I understood exactly what was happening. There is no one else I would ever want defending me or anyone I know.

Professional Services In Law
The Rodriguez Law Office is indeed compassionate, knowledgeable in law and communicative with their services. Namely Tomniel Rodriguez going above and beyond just being an attorney, I strongly recommend them displaying healthy skepticism and fair judgement.

Excellent skills of study in Law. Attorney was hired after Prev. Attorney fired due to lack of knowledge of the justice system. In 2-3 months case was settled just as My family and I expected. Through God he was the Rock in the courtroom with ease. I would use him again if I had to. I would recommend his services anytime. Great skills of study on Law. I am amazed!!!!

I can not say enough positive things about Mr. Rodriguez
Mr. Rodriguez is a such an amazing attorney. Never have I seen or heard of an attorney that was such a knowledgeable and caring lawyer. He goes beyond his duties and explains your options and educates you about your case. He makes you feel like your case is just as important as his next case. He returns calls himself within 2 days, whether you are a concerned relative, friend, or his client. He truly is an amazing guy. I can not say enough positive things about Mr. Rodriguez and I speak from the heart. My friend was blessed to have him represent him and I know all this first hand because I was was a witness in this case. He is the best around. Just read his reviews. I would not think twice about using him if I needed. Thank you Mr. Rodriguez for all you did for my friend.

Very glad I went with him
Tonmiel Rodriguez is an excellent attorney. After my last not-so-great experience with hiring an attorney I decided to do my research first and find a good one this time. I'm glad I did because it was like night and day. Tonmiel was highly professional and very communicative throughout the whole duration of my case. He kept me informed on relevant details via both phone and email and was always available and very helpful whenever I had questions. Additionally, he was always punctual. He never left me waiting around when there was a hearing, and each time he had me in and out of there very quickly. He got me the best outcome I could have hoped for in my case and I highly recommend him if you are in need of representation.

Excellent lawyer
Tonmiel Rodríguez is a great lawyer and I would highly recommend his services. He does a really good job with his clients. He explains all the options available and advises the best option for each case. He is always available and has really good communication with the client. He answers calls and emails on timely manner and makes you feel good about your case. One of the best reasons to hire him is because he will be with you during the whole process, from beginning to end. In my opinion, he is a great person. He is responsible, honest, has good work ethic, and is a professional person that you can trust. If you hire him, you can be sure Mr. Tonmiel Gonzalez will do the best for you. God Bless him for his good work and everything he does. Quiero recomendar ampliamente al abogado Tonmiel Rodriguez por ser una persona que se preocupa por su cliente, le explica muy bien a uno todas las opciones y lo más importante trabaja por la mejor opción. Siempre responde a las llamadas que uno necesite hacerle, lo que le da uno mucha seguridad y hay por su parte siempre un acompañamiento de principio a fin . En mi concepto es una gran persona muy responsable serio honesto y un gran profesional en que se puede confiar y que quien contrate sus servicios se sentirá seguro el abogado Tonmiel Rodriguez hará lo menor por usted. Que Dios lo bendiga siempre.

Knowledgeable, Personable, and a Great Communicator
Mr. Rodriguez acted fast on my case. It was terminated and dismissed, due to the facts and circumstances within a few weeks. Mr. Rodriguez was very professional, personable, and reassuring to me during this very stressful time. He replied via email and telephone whenever he had an update. I highly recommend him for anyone in need of a defense attorney.
