Excellent experience!
Mr. Rodriguez is the best lawyer for a hit and run! Since the beginning, Mr. Rodriguez was very helpful and responded to our calls/texts right away. There were times we were very worried due to other letters from the police, other party's attorney and the DMV, but Mr. Rodriguez made us feel at ease. He dealt with the other party and convinced them to do a civil compromise. This helped tremendously in the criminal side of it because our case was at the court level too. But, he practically had our case dismissed!! We only had to pay a fine. I highly recommend Mr. Rodriguez :)

Best in the business
I found Steve on google way back in south korea where i was being detained. My first impression proved to be right because he was every bit as professional, capable, passionate, trustworthy all throughout our journey where in the end at the court in los angeles he was able to get my felony case dismissed. I have to add that not only is he the best lawyer i've met he is first and foremost a real human being. His honesty and integrity extended to our personal interaction too where he even tried for getting me a job since i had just arrived on LA with nothing to my name. Call him now and if youre reminded of anything the reviews here claim including mine, know that he is for real and will be the best help you can find. Thank you again Steve!

Exceptional lawyer
My highest compliments go out to Attorney Stephen Rodriguez and his team. Without his help, I would have been lost through an overwhelming court system. Stephen walked me through every step of the way and achieved the successful outcome of having my conviction expunged. His level of transparency, efficiency, and professionalism helped me get through the difficult situation of a first-time legal offense. I appreciated the timely communication and sincere level of empathy throughout the process. I’m grateful for Stephen’s personal attention to details about my case and excellent legal strategy and representation. I highly recommend his services and will continue to consult Stephen for any future legal matters that arise.

For Kenneth & Stephen
Let me begin with, I don’t write reviews very often. i never thought I’d be writing a positive review for an attorney! let alone 2! I had found Stephen G & Kenneth K at a critical time in my life. I had just been diagnosed with a rare Non Hodgkin Lymphoma & simultaniously falsely accused of a crime in retaliation from my ex landlord losing an eviction and having to pay me. The judge told me I could sue him and preserved those rights for me which is rare. There is a statue of limitations on everything. So if he got me arrested that may buy him a lot of time & get revenge all at the same time. So after defying that court order and drilling my locks to lock me out a month early and robbing my house he decided to make a police report that I stole his stuff 3 MONTHS AFTER i moved out! My police report was ignored but I had a knock at my door and 1/2 a dozen cops stormed in to arrest me! They said they had a FELONY warrant! I told them they had it wrong I was the one who was locked out and robbed. I got thrown in a disgusting jail cell with a bunch of really sick people. You can NOT get cancer treatment if you get sick. I got very sick so I had to get representation but not any representation I needed GREAT representation because my life depended on it. I explained what was going on to both Ken and Stephen. At first I didn’t trust them, I didn’t think they could comprehend how complicated this case was AND also very importantly get me a positive outcome sooner then later. After a couple months (the pandemic hit big time and the courts were basically closed) I got a call asking me to come in. They assured me it was good news not bad but I had options. When I came in they asked me what I wanted. I said case dismissed of course and hopefully have the landlord indicted for everything. Well …..they said they had the dismissal on the table if I wanted it. We can work on the latter after & get everything expunged so I can pursue my life without any “weight” from this horrible ordeal. Without any reservation, I would recommend Kenneth & Stephen if you find yourself in trouble! I’ll add they really truly cared. I would get a call on random Sunday nights just to see how I am! Who does that?! Ya, that’s why I’m writing this because I’m free & clear now only because they cared that much!

Look no further
If you are seeking a team who will keep it honest, while also having the knowledge and resources to help whatever sticky situation you have found yourself in, Ken and Stephen are your guys. From beginning to end they left me feeling assured that my case was in good hands, while also keeping me informed throughout the whole thing. These guys don't end their day when they leave the office, they care about your case and will be there for you when you need them. Thank you for handling everything with grace and taking care of my case when I found myself having a hard time. I will be saving their contact info in case myself or my friends ever need help again.

Stephen and Ken are very professional yet personable at the same time. They took all the stress and anxiety off my shoulders. Stephen and Ken are my version of the Legal Dream Team. I could never have reached a successful conclusion without the professional representation this firm provided. They did an excellent job on my case and everybody was more than helpful. I would recommend this firm to others in a heartbeat!

My Experience
A year ago I was in a very serious situation that had life changing consequences. I had an attorney who I paid so much money to, to assist me with my case in which he'd always respond "don't to worry about it." In which, I ended up with no solution after 7 months and with the same consequences as I started with. Lucky for me I found Stephen Rodriguez and partners who helped me get what I can say the best possible deal I could've gotten due to the complications of my case. Stephen Rodriguez along with Kenneth Khan worked hard on my case and gave me better results than what my previous lawyer had. I was communicated with clarity and updated with any information I needed to know and honestly I was saved from having my life ruined with life time sex registration. I would highly recommend Stephen Rodriguez and partners to anyone in need of help facing serious charges. They will assist you and walk you through your situation in the best possible manner. I am forever grateful for their help.

Crime fighting friend
During the summer I found myself entangled with the law and was arrested for a felony account. Scared and confused with the legal system after my arrest I made several calls to several criminal lawyers. Mr Rodriguez was the first to return my call within an hour where others took a day or two to just get back to me. He quickly arranged a meeting where his services where hired on the spot. A plan was discussed and agreed for my representation to tackle my charged crime. Stephen Rodriguez and his team gained my trust trough their level of knowledge immediately as I felt taken care off and well represented after this meeting. My exceptional experience with this law group and its office personal did not stop there. Stephen always was always available to address any concerns or answer questions along the way. The final result of my to my legal entanglement came to be when the results came from the court... I found myself with no criminal record and my legal problems solved thanks to the experience and hard work of Stephen Rodriguez Law firm.

Highly recommend.
Stephen Rodriguez is an exceptional lawyer. His specializes in criminal defense at the highest level. His attitude towards work and his clients is on another level. When I was looking for attorneys, Stephen was the only one who picked up the phone at 11 p.m. Saturday night. For this, I greatly appreciate his dedication to work with clients after office hours. He guided me throughout the whole process, responded to all my calls and emails right away. Although I knew that I had a weak, losing case, Steve was always cheering me up and believing that everything will be alright. He was able to drop down felony charges to a trespassing charge. Throughout this whole experience, I am forever thankful to him as he was able secure my freedom. I highly recommend Mr. Rodriguez as a criminal defense lawyer!

Outstanding Attorney
From one day to another my life changed and I found myself facing a serious felony charge. A close friend of mine was able to help me hire Stephen and Ken. Immediately, Stephen and Ken went to work for me and got me out of jail. After having worked with these two attorneys, I have to say, they are some of the best out there. They are both well respected and trustworthy individuals. Stephen and Ken will work hard to get the best results possible. They have no problem answering or returning your call regardless of being a weekday or weekend. I honestly feel I couldn't have got these results without them. They were successful in keeping me out of jail and helped me avoid having to register as a sex offender for life. I hope you are not in a situation like I was, but if you do find yourself facing criminal charges, I very much recommend these two attorneys.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDENDED
I have engaged the services of Stephen G. Rodriquez as a criminal defense attorney on two occasions for separate, unrelated matters. His Performance was of the highest caliber and he accomplished optimum results in both cases. He concisely evaluated both situations, informed me of his strategy and of the possible results. He then got right to work, wasting no time. He has a superior knowledge of all facets of the criminal law in which he specializes. Additionally, his ability to use his networking skills and the contacts he has made with the courts and the prosecutors streamlines his ability to achieve successful results for his clients. I can unconditionally recommend Mr. Rodriguez to anyone who needs the most superior criminal law defense representation..

Thank You Stephen!
When lawyers get caught in a jam, they need the help of a good lawyer as well. And frankly, as a member of the legal profession, I was embarrassed to enlist the help of another lawyer but I can honestly say that within the first few minutes of speaking with him, Stephen Rodriguez was the right man for the job. Extremely experienced, always quick to return a call or follow up with a message back, professional, and personable –him and his legal team were there for me every step of the way. If you find yourself needing a quality criminal attorney to share his knowledge and advise you with your legal troubles, don’t hesitate and give Stephen a call right now. You won’t regret it!

Thank you Mr Rodriguez
I hired Mr. Rodriguez and Mr. Kahn to represent me on a felony theft case. I was scared because I had a student visa and I didn't want to be suspended from school and kicked out of the country. I went to court many times and after a few months they got me a great deal. They were a huge help. I was not suspended from school and not forced to leave the country. Thanks very much.

Stephen is the man
I initially hired Stephen Rodriguez for advice in a complicated matter. I've never had to hire an attorney before so naturally I called and spoke to about 10 before contacting Stephen. Right off the bat I could tell he was different than the others in the way he analyzes and brainstorms ideas. If you want your typical cookie cutting attorney, then most attorneys with good reviews on avvo will probably do you well. If you want a guy that thinks outside the box, I recommend giving Stephen a quick call. His prices are fair and he gets the job the done. Out of the 10 or so that I spoke with, Stephen was the only attorney I felt I could trust wasn't just entirely after my retainer. 5 stars service!

I definitely recommend him!!!
I was about to graduate college and looking forward to getting a great job when I was arrested for shoplifting. Stupid mistake. I interviewed four lawyers and didn't care for them. A couple of them told me I was going to jail and I didn't appreciate that. The other two attorneys kept me waiting for over half an hour. I was then recommended to Mr. Rodriguez and Mr. Kahn. I met with them and they listened to my whole story. They put me at ease and they answered all my questions and last but not least they gave me some hope. They reviewed the police report with me and even let me look at the store loss prevention videos. They worked on my case for several months and at the end the case was dismissed with a small fine. Wow! Can't beat that. I definitely recommend these attorneys.

Highly recommend!
Stephen Rodriguez has been amazing from the start. A family man, genuine and non judgmental. Every single time I’ve met him at his office, he’s been very welcoming. His partner Kenneth Kahn is also an upstanding man. They make you feel comfortable; if you’re unsure about something, no question is a silly question to them. I’ve never felt rushed by either and while I knew they had other cases much larger than mine, they treated my situation with equal importance. They truly care about their clients. Both are also easy to get a hold of, and if for some reason they aren’t able to answer, the response back is close to immediate. I really appreciate Stephen and Kenneth for their help and would recommend them to anyone that needs service in the Los Angeles area.
