Community Involvement

At Rodriguez & Associates we strive to serve our community both in and out of the courtroom. We know how important it is to give back through our local organizations and charities. By doing so, we can help those in need as well as strengthen the community we work and live in.

Most recently, we made a donation of $200,000.00 to the Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Burn Unit and the Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Neuro Trauma Unit. We are passionate about this contribution because people in our community will be able to receive medical services locally without having to travel outside of Bakersfield!

We are proud to team up with HOT 94.1 for our annual school backpack giveaway! Our attorneys and staff work together with HOT 94.1 to provide backpacks and school supplies to kids who need it! In  addition to giving away backpacks, we also put together a raffle where lucky individuals have a chance to win special prizes including iPads, TVs and more! This event gives our law firm a chance to get to know our community better while providing a safe and festive atmosphere for families to enjoy!

Partner, Joel Andreesen, is on the board for the CSU Bakersfield Roadrunner Scholarship Fund. The Roadrunner Scholarship Fund raises scholarship money for the CSU Bakersfield student athletes. There is no more gratifying experience than knowing we have made a difference in these students’ lives.
