Mr. Ryan Rodriguez is a former prosecutor, who has worked as a Deputy District Attorney in both Los Angeles County and Orange County. Mr. Rodriguez has been doing criminal law exclusively since he graduated law school in 2004.
At Loyola 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.

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.
