Great Lawyer
I was looking at 25 years to life in prison. My previous attorney wanted me to plea to 20 years, even though i told him i was innocent. I hired Adam and he believed in me and took the case to Jury trial. I was found Not Guilty. He saved my life. If anybody gets in trouble, call Adam first. He is the best.

Awesome Lawyer - He kept me out of prison
Adam represented me on a Federal charge of transporting illegal aliens, it was the first time i have every been in trouble with the law. I was looking a at least 18 months. When i first met him he told what i needed to do if I was to have any shot at staying out of prison. I followed what he said to do. At the sentencing day, the prosecutor asked for 18 months, Adam argued to probation and the judge agreed. I am so grateful that he was my attorney. He kept me out of prison.

First time DWI
I was a college student who made a mistake when I was young. Adam was understanding to this and worked with me through and after college. He was able to get my case dismissed and let me live my life without worrying about my future. I highly recommend Adam to anyone who has messed up and looking for great counsel.

Amazing Lawyer
I was charged with two counts of furnishing alcohol to minors and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. I thought that this was going to prevent me from getting a career. I went to Adam and he was able to get all charges dismissed! Great lawyer, professional and friendly! I highly recommend him!

Very professional
I didn't know I had a warrant for my arrest. When I got pulled over for a speeding ticket, the police officer said I had a misdemeanor warrant. He issued me a citation to appear in court. I called Mr. Rodrigue and he said everything would be fine. The next day, he called me and said I didn't have to appear in court and he got the case reduced to a violation and I just had to pay a small fine. The warrant was lifted and I didn't have a misdemeanor on my record. Thank you again. You will not be disappointed if you retain Mr. Rodrigue. I know not every outcome can turn out like mine, but he was very professional, confident and worked on my case immediately.

A+ attorney
I hired Mr. Rodrigue to handle my felony assault case. He did a really good job. He pushed the case to trial and the day of trial the prosecutor dismissed the charges against me. I am very satisfied with the work he did on my case and would hire him again if I needed to.

Adoption
Adam was the lawyer to represent my daughter in our adoption case. I'm so grateful for his help. He was very kind and made us feel very comfortable. My husband was able to adopt my daughter and Adam got to be apart of that and I will forever be grateful!

Case Dismissed
Mr. Rodrigue represented me on a tampering with evidence charge. He did a very good job explaining my rights, and how the whole legal process works. I really did not want this on my record so he pushed the case to a Jury Trial and the prosecutor dismissed my charge. I highly recommend him to anybody who needs a good attorney.

Adam is a great lawyer
I hired Mr. Rodrigue after my court appointed attorney wanted me to take the same deal as my codefendant, which was 10 years in prison. Adam was referred to me by a good friend and I am so glad I hired him, he was able to get me probation, which I happily accepted. I don't have the best record, so it was a miracle outcome. My only negative with Mr.Rodrigue is that he does not always return phone calls very quickly, but I forgave that because he got such a good result with my case and i know he is in court alot. I would highly recommend anybody who gets in trouble to hire Mr. Rodrigue.

Adam is a great lawyer
I was arrested for a conspiracy charge in San Patricio County. I am from Houston and didnt know any attorney in the area. Mr. Rodrigue was referred to me by another guy in the jail. After we hired Adam, he got my bond reduced so i could get out and go back to Houston. After a couple of months the case was dismissed without ever being indicted. He did a great job with my case, and seemed to be very well respected and liked by the Judge. I would highly recommend him to anybody who needs an attorney.

Great Lawyer
I was arressted for DWI. Mr. Rodrigue was referred to me by a family friend who used to be a Judge. He told me he likes to take cases to trial, and that I should not plea to the DWI because it was my first offense. He was upfront with me about what could happen, and was always honest with me, even when it was not good news. In the end he was able to get my case dismissed after he filed a motion to suppress. I highly recommend Mr. Rodrigue.

Best Lawyer
I was charged with possession of Cocaine in Corpus Christi. I initially had a public defender, but was unhappy with her. So a friend told me to talk Adam, who was his Attorney. I hired Adam and he was able to get the case dismissed after going to Court a couple of times. He told me what i needed to do, and it worked.

Excellent Lawyer
I hired Mr. Rodrigue for an assault case. I was refered to him by a good friend who he had previously represented. My Ex got me arrested after we had an arguement, and told the police I had assulted her and choked her, which was a lie. I was looking at a felony for something I didnt do. Mr. Rodrigue believed in me and told me he would take the case all the way to a jury trial, which we did. I was in front of judge that was very mean and intimidating, but Mr. Rodrigue assured me everything would be ok. The case got reset several times, and eventually Mr. Rodrigue, got the case dismissed. He was an excellent attorney and now I recommend him to all of my friends.

Great Attorney
Adam got me probation in federal alien smuggling case. I was looking at 18-24 months in the federal prison, but he argued for probation and the judge went with what he said. He was very helpful and told what i needed to do to ensure a good outcome. I recommend him to all of my friends and family. He is a very good attorney.

Great Lawyer - He saved me
Adam is a great attorney. He was always honest and upfront with me and kept me inform at every step of my case. At our first meeting he told me that he could not promise me that we could win the case, but he did promise me he would give 150%, and that he hates to loose. Well he did just that, he filed some motions and after the hearing my case was dismissed. I was charged with a marijuana case and a conviction would have made me loose my job. I highly recommend him to anybody charged with a crime.
