How Dagoberto Rodriguez Pushed Himself to Launch His Own Law Firm

Dagoberto Rodriguez

Everyone has a drive that pushes them forward. For attorney Dagoberto Rogriguez, his drive has always been his competitiveness with himself to become a better version of himself. The road he took to get where he is now was a long one that started in his home country.

Rodriguez originally hails from Caracas, Venezuela. He studied for a degree in law at Universidad Santa Maria, Escuela de Derecho. As he completed his studies, his country was going through a political change. This prompted Rodriguez to flee his country in 2001.

He found himself in the United States with one thing on his mind: to become a lawyer. However, he had no money to support his studies, and he couldn’t speak the language. Rodriguez decided to look for a job that allowed him to study and provide funds to support himself. He found work in construction that gave him the time to attend ESL classes.

One day, on the way to work, Rodriguez found himself in a terrible car accident. This led to severe damage to his vehicle. He was also injured in the accident but without medical insurance or the funds to seek medical help he was not able to find the help he needed. It was a difficult time for Rodriguez as he shelled out his money for the rental of another vehicle and the deductible to repair his car.

Later on, and while in Law School, Rodriguez would learn about “personal injury lawyers” and realize that the insurance company for the person at fault took advantage of him. 

During his studies, he would learn that victims of injuries caused by negligent parties have a right to receive compensation for their injuries. It came to him what kind of lawyer he wanted to be. 

Rodriguez would finish up his studies and later on become licensed in three different states. After graduating from law school, Rodriguez worked with immigrants. He would partner with a firm that decided they wanted to go entirely into another field of law.

With the direction they took, Rodriguez started earning great money and had multiple associates and staff members. He had everything any lawyer could possibly want. Despite this, Rodriguez felt a disconnection as it was not his thing. He would part from the firm to start one of his own.

He founded Rodriguez Law Firm, where he could practice law in Virginia, Maryland and D.C., allowing him to focus on Personal Injury Law. Rodriguez has been helping those who were injured recover their money and needed to pay for medical treatments. He has even had the pleasure of representing people who told him to forget about becoming a lawyer because it was impossible. Rodriguez has also been able to earn enough money that allowed him to send help back in Venezuela.
