GREAT Attorney
I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. Other attorneys were trying to hurt me. When Erick came the case was a lie but I was in trouble-he cleared my name.

Super Lawyer
He did a great job. Erick was actually a Law Clerk previously at this courthouse-Judges were impressed because they new him. I felt so good with Erick while other lawyers were digging me a hole. He even understood. I am truly grateful for Erick Munoz. I lost my job because of record prior to Erick. I could not have asked for better.

Mr. Munoz was the first to respond to my legal issues when I asked for advice.... He truly was efficient and very helpful in explaining what my legal rights were as a tenant. My case was very well handled by Mr. Munoz. We had a speedy court case with the outcome in our favor... I would recommend Mr. Munoz to anyone who needed legal help. Very efficient and always with the defendants best interest.... Would hire him again without a doubt...

Great Attorney
I contacted the Rodriguez Law group after someone reported that I was part of a hit and run while I was driving a company vehicle. I went to the police to give my statement as I hadn't been part of any accident. The official police report stated it was a minor accident which resulted in minimal scuff marks on the "victims" bumper. The "victim" didn't call the police and instead he reported the accident a few days after. The police department moved foward with the complaint and sent it to the DA's office. The charge: Misdemeanor hit and run. The "victim" positively identified me and hired a private attorney the next day and sued the company I work for damages and bodily injury. I had just relocated from Texas due to work. My wife and I had just started an adoption process at the time. If I got convicted, I would lose my job. My wife and I also had to put a stop to our adoption process due to this pending case. I began my search for a trustworthy attorney who would work hard on my behalf and believe my statement. After multiple searches and reading reviews, I found the Rodriguez Law Group. Erick Munoz, answered my call. I explained the situation and reiterated that I wasn't part of any hit and run. Erick assured me he would work hard on my case. He explained the process in detail. I truly trusted Erick as his resume speaks volumes. Erick kept me informed thoughout the entire process. I didn't have to miss any work days. Most importantly he worked with my budget. The DA's office offered to settle the case if I paid the "victim" damages and medical bills. Erick didn't accept the offer as I was not guilty and therefore should't pay anything to this individual. Erick worked with the insurance company and discovered this "victim" had multiple hit and run claims against other company vehicles. This individual received multiple insurance payouts from various insurance companies, throughout the years. In the end, after a couple of months of Erick Munoz and Nathan Soleimani communicating with the DA' office my case was dismissed. I am at peace knowing that I didn't get charged for something I didn't do. I can now rest assured my job is no longer on the line and I can move foward with our adoption process. I am truly grateful for the amazing work Erick and Nathan have done.

Thorough, Clear and Helpful, Professional
During our consultation, Erick took the time to walk through the specifics of my case and was able to breakdown each step in such a way that I could understand what my legal process entailed. He explained everything very clearly, in detail and made sure to answer my questions. His professionalism and command of criminal law was evident and immensely comforting. I could sense that he is compassionate yet ready to roll his sleeves up and aggressively fight in court for his clients. I felt much more optimistic, informed and confident about the legal road of me after our consultation. Being entwined in a legal matter is one of the most stressful situations one can find themselves in, Erick is who I want I my corner. I am really grateful to Erick for his time and helpfulness and would hire him to represent me or a loved one, if ever needed, without a doubt.

I'm fortunate my difficult case landed in the best hands possible! Erick Munoz went above and beyond his tittle to represent me
Erick Munoz gave me the confidence and strength to endure a Crimal Trial on a Domestic Violence case that was wrongfully prosecuted by the DA . I am extremely grateful for the results. He treated me like a human at a time where i was seen as a criminal by the court system. He took the time to mentally and emotionally prepare me for our journey into trial. At court, i was shocked to see all the evidence he had gathered, seeing how well prepared he was gave me hope and motivated me not to give up on myself. Allowing DA to bring in multiple witnesses to testify against me was terrifying, but necessary. After hearing story after story, and seeing real evidence, the Jury was able to see thru the lies. After 15 minutes in deliberations, my case was ruled Self-defense.

He's cut to win.Everything is so much easier when someone that has the winner mentality and is there to fight for you and your rights! Thank you for the endless support and help. Forever grateful.
