Chambers USA rankings are determined through thousands of interviews that are conducted by a team of 50+ full-time researchers. Chambers researches, compiles and launches completely new editions of their directories each year. Rodriguez has been named in Chambers USA for the past three years.
Florida Trend's Legal Elite
The top two percent of the more than 66,000 active Florida Bar members are included in Florida Trend's Legal Elite in which Rodriguez has been listed under International for the past two years.
Only five percent of the lawyers in the state of Florida are named Super Lawyers and Rodriguez has been chosen since 2008.
