I recently had the pleasure of working opposed Mr. Rodriguez on another matter. Throughout this litigation, however, I learned that Mr. Rodriguez was able to procure political asylum status for a Mexican business owner who fled Mexico for fear of violence in her area. Then I learned of the many novel arguments he has crafted with wonderful results, several of which were of first impression on the immigration court. Immigration law is in a constant flux and Mr. Rodriguez has his finger on the pulse. Anyone needing an immigration attorney will be well-served by Mr. Rodriguez’s unique legal intelligence. His outside-the-box thinking has garnered significant, impressive victories. He is 100%, fully endorsed.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Jorge for many years. He is very meticulous in his attention to detail and is relentless in his preparation for cases. He has represented clients in the social security field all over the country, and is thus very experienced with the transactional and court-related work that comes along with each case. Jorge is very approachable and relates well with his clients, guiding them through the process with care and patience. We’ve worked together on some immigration cases and I always appreciated his insight. I would definitely recommend him as a lawyer.
