Daniel Rodriguez Makes the 2021 California Super Lawyers List

Thursday, January 21, 2021


Attorney Daniel Rodriguez, Founder and President at Rodriguez & Associates, has been selected to the 2021 California Super Lawyers list. No more than five percent of the lawyers in California are selected by Super Lawyers.

For over ten years, Super Lawyers has recognized Daniel Rodriguez for his outstanding legal achievements. He has demonstrated excellence in the practice of law year after year.

Super Lawyers®, part of Thomson Reuters, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

Daniel is a member of The National Trial Lawyers – an invitation only group composed of the premier trial lawyers from across the United States. His firm has obtained more multi-million-dollar verdicts than any other law firm in the Southern San Joaquin Valley and has earned the highest personal injury verdict in Kern County history. In 2019 alone, he had three verdicts that made the Top 40 Personal Injury Verdicts in California list (by Top Verdict). The largest verdict in that list was a $70.5 million verdict in a trucking crash/traumatic brain injury case.

“Being listed in Super Lawyers once again for the litigation work I do is an honor,” said Rodriguez. “Helping individuals and families in Kern County get the justice they deserve for the pain they have experienced is why I do what I do.”

Congratulations, Daniel!

Working with Personal Injury Attorney Daniel Rodriguez

Tuesday, July 14, 2020

“Everyone I know has nothing but wonderful things to say about Daniel Rodriguez and Rodriguez & Associates. From dealing with the secretaries to other attorneys in the office, we were always treated with the utmost professionalism. We were always seen immediately and treated like family; really treated like family. It was not an easy case for us, it was a very emotional case for us because it was my dad. But Daniel understood that, Daniel could see that, and I think that made him fight even harder because once he got to know who my dad was and our family, he got to see what a terrible loss we took when my dad was taken away. So, we are very thankful for Daniel Rodriguez and his team. He is beyond professional, beyond compassionate, I can’t see any other attorney here in Bakersfield that does the kind of work that he does. The quality of work and the time he takes out to speak to his clients and make sure their needs are met.”
-Nadine Escalante

We are honored when we receive testimonials like this that are so heartfelt and genuine. Daniel Rodriguez, founder and President of our Bakersfield personal injury law firm leads Rodriguez & Associates with the motto, “Big firm results with small firm service.” All personal injury attorneys at Rodriguez & Associates take this to heart by treating each client and case as if they were representing someone from their own family. We strive to thoroughly investigate every case to see that justice is served and that our clients receive what they deserve (and more) for their pain, suffering or loss. During this process, we also get to know the clients and their families on a personal level so when we win on their behalf, it is not just a victory for the firm, it is a personal victory for our attorneys as well.
