About me

Mr. Rodriguez was born and raised in Glenn County, California.  He attended local schools and graduated from Orland High School in 1997.  In 2001, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with an emphasis in Legal Studies from California State University, Chico.  After graduating from college, he attended the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, where he earned a Juris Doctor degree in 2004.  He became a member of the State Bar of California in November of 2004 after successfully passing the state bar exam on his first attempt.  Since graduating from law school, he has worked solely in the area of criminal defense.  His first three years of practice were spent as an associate at the Law Offices of Dane A. Cameron in Chico, CA.  He received extensive jury trial experience during that three year period, handling all classes of criminal cases.  


Mr. Rodriguez decided to venture out and commence his own law practice after spending his first three years as an associate at Mr. Cameron’s firm.  He has continued to devote his practice entirely to criminal defense.  Mr. Rodriguez has been involved in and tried to verdict numerous serious criminal matters throughout the course of his career.  He also has extensive negotiation experience and has successfully negotiated thousands of criminal cases.  He is a member of California Attorneys for Criminal Justice (CACJ) as well as the California Public Defenders Association (CPDA).
