About me


Mr. Ryan Rodriguez is a licensed California Attorney who graduated from Loyola Law School.  In law school, his primary focus and specialization was in the area of criminal procedure, practice, and litigation.   While there he enjoyed and excelled in courses covering the basic constitutional rights associated with the investigation and adjudication of criminal cases.  As part of his education and specialization in criminal law, he was instructed and trained by former Deputy District Attorneys, prominent defense attorneys, and Assistant United States’ Attorneys from the Department of Justice.  

As a student, he was selected from many to participate in the Hobbs Trial Advocacy Program.  This program is well recognized throughout Southern California as one of the most prestigious and effective means for preparing law school graduates for successful careers as prosecutors in the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.  As part of the program, he was assigned an externship with District Attorney’s office where he was able to sharpen his skills in trial litigation and become the first law student at the courthouse to litigate and obtain a guilty verdict in a criminal trial.


After an extensive hiring process, he was one of a selective group of individuals hired to become a prosecutor for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.  He received well over a hundred hours of training in every aspect of a jury trial, including but not limited to: advanced trial preparation, interaction with the media on high profile cases, and everything from effective jury selection to the penalty phase, all using the latest in courtroom technology. As a prosecutor, he handled several thousand arraignments, pretrial motions, suppression hearings, in excess of 1,000 preliminary hearings, dozens of jury trials and sentencing hearings, all with a strong track record for success.  Later in his career, he was offered and accepted a promotion to become a Deputy District Attorney for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office where he continued with his success. 


After several years as a prosecutor, with experience in both Los Angeles and Orange County, Mr. Rodriguez started his own criminal defense practice, and placed his extensive knowledge and vast experience in defending others.  With his experience and many achievements on both sides of the criminal justice system, his vast knowledge and understanding of the law, and the ability to speak both English and Spanish fluently, he confidently handles any type of criminal case; whether it is defending a DUI or something as serious as Murder.  In 2012, Mr Rodriguez was named to Super Lawyers Rising Stars list.  No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in California are named to the Rising Stars list. 


If you happen to be faced with a situation that requires legal assistance or guidance, it is important to have someone competent on your side that you can trust will represent you while keeping your best interests as their primary focus.
