Rodriguez & Associates is proud to announce Danay Gonzalez as our newest partner.

Local to the Bakersfield community, Danay clerked at Rodriguez & Associates while attending Chapman University, Dale E. Fowler School of Law, becoming an attorney with the firm after passing the Bar in 2017.

In her five years with Rodriguez & Associates, she has worked collaboratively with the trial team on a number of sensitive cases that require compassion and deep commitment to clients, expertly handling challenging cases ranging from wrongful death to school sex abuse matters that have gone to trial.

She says of her experiences with the team, “I have learned so much in the last five years. I really feel like I belong here and this is what I was meant to do. I am excited to keep learning. I am truly thankful for Daniel – he has helped mold me into the attorney I have become. His mentorship has given me a lot of confidence and tools to become successful. I look forward to continuing to grow and to be of service to others.”

The firm’s Litigation Director, Patrick Benitez, says of Danay, “Not only have I seen her grow as a fantastic trial lawyer and influencer, but more importantly she has grown into an amazing human being. Our legacy of success will only grow stronger with such an amazing team of new lawyers.”

Through her ambition and hard work, Danay has made a tremendous impact on the firm and in her representation of clients from within the Bakersfield community. We are extremely proud to have her as a member of the Rodriguez & Associates family.
