Ms. Rodriguez was born to a poor working single mother and grew up homeless until the age of 7 years old. Her mother battled addiction until Ms. Rodriguez was a teenager. Ms. Rodriguez always determined to make a difference, set herself to getting a higher education and becoming a lawyer. She graduated with honors after a rocky start her freshman year. She left her mother's home at 13 and lived with family in California while attending high school.

She attended the University of Southern California on scholarship graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing and communications. She went on to attend law school in Philadelphia at Temple University Beasley School of Law. She participated on the mock trial team for three years in high school, three years in college, and on Temple's National Trial Team; always knowing law was her passion and life. She received exceptional advocacy training from one of the best law school programs in the country.

Ms. Rodriguez previously interned for the Camden Public Defender's Office, the Philadelphia Public Defender's Office, the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office, and the Los Angeles Public Defenders Office. Ms. Rodriguez currently and for the past ten years has represented a wide range of clients, focusing her representation on borrowers facing non-judicial foreclosure, Plaintiff/Personal injury, bankruptcy, real estate, and property law, as well as landlord/tenant disputes (for both landlords and tenants). Currently, her main focus is the CCCD - Criminal Defense, Civil defense, Custody, and Divorce.  

She is dedicated and focused on her practice; she carries a caseload and manages the entire legal and business team. She has taken her exceptional training in trial advocacy and aggressively litigated over hundreds of cases with compassionate and tireless effort. She continues to remain an intricate part of the firm's daily dealings. She currently has dedicated her life and career to helping the underdog fight the impossible fight. She treats every case she handles as if it were her only case and gives each client as much personal attention as absolutely possible.

Look no further! I'm serious. The best I have ever witnessed.
Our attorney was Patricia Rodriquez. A bit of a street edge (in a good way!) mixed with incredible knowledge and energy and laser focus!! She explained everything in detail and was extremely patient with the most mundane questions. I witnessed her in a three day trial and she didn't miss a beat from the tiniest scrap of information. She is incredibly intelligent, spunky and sharp as a tack! Highly professional and tireless. I can't say enough about her. If you ever hire her you are in terrific hands! I felt secure and well represented every single day in court. On breaks she would quickly but thoroughly answer our questions (and we had a lot) and then would immediately put her head down and hit the books making detailed notes reading the going over everything that was just laid out from the opposing party. She is brilliant!!

Phenomenal Law Firm
The Rodriguez Law Group was a Phenomenal firm to work with and if I could rate them 10 Stars I would. I had the pleasure of working directly with Bryan and Patricia for about 5 months. The level of professionalism, responsiveness, and engagement they demonstrated throughout that time was a great experience, considering the reason why they were retained. I highly recommend this firm because they treat their clients with care. I'm forever grateful and will sing praises for their ethical work.

Patricia just cares...
Patricia is wonderful. I've come to her for a few cases now, and every time she's been realistic, compassionate and she works her tail off. I appreciate her honesty and I feel that she treats me the same way she'd treat a family member.

Client
Patricia Rodriguez and her team are very professional and dedicated to helping homeowners. I have hired Patricia for the past 6 years and she has always been very communicative and accessible in my case. I have been able to stay in my home much longer than I thought and defend against a bank that reneged on an agreement. I highly recommend her representation as she's the best around.

Reliable and results oriented lawyer
Patricia was my lawyer for a few years. She worked on a case involving one of my properties that was in at BK Estate years back. She was always very professional and had tremendous care in the way she handled the file. She was not only strategic but also had compassion and took her cases seriously. Often times, I would hear from her on weekends as well which by no means did she need to be working. I went through a long process with her that ended well so I would highly recommend her to anyone even with the toughest of files. She is very strong and knows how to navigate herself through the legal system quite well so you can rely on her services. My gratitude is immense for Patricia and the service she provided

I had the pleasure to speak with Rick & his other colleagues on a conference call. Rick and his colleagues generously gave of their time and extensive experience with what I'd call the fraudclosure game. I didn't speak with Patricia personally? But, Rick was most informed and this law firm was generous to take the time to inform & educate me in order to understand what the realities are within my case. I greatly appreciated the time they all took to help! If I come across others who may benefit from Patricia's and her group of attorneys services. I will make the referral!

She gives legal advice based on the law & not assumption. Many of the other Lawyers that attempted to give me legal advice didn't take time to ask me what really happened and treated me like a criminal right away. Patricia does not only listen .. She also is incredibly knowledgeable

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2020.

Discipline with Actual Suspension issued in CA, 2020
updated on 05/17/2022

This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

Patricia's comment: “All of my work is insured. My license is and will remain active. This was related to loan modification work in 2015 in the context of foreclosure defense, not any criminal defense, civil defense, custody, or divorce work. It was due to the bar's interpretation of a statute after the fact, one in fact, that helped the bank's more than the consumer. I stand by my decisions and continue to fight the banks for the borrowers at all costs. However, I do not do any loan modification work.”
