Christian Rodriguez, Esq.,
Managing Partner

Christian comes from a family of entrepreneurs . His grandparents made the incredibly difficult decision to leave their homeland of Cuba to escape a tyranny and give their families a better life. His family arrived with no money or a place to live and had to make a life out of nothing. As they became acclimated, they started small businesses which helped them bring their respective families out of poverty and provide a better future for the next generations.

Christians paternal family started a furniture company and his maternal family started a medical supply company. At his core, Christian believes is the attorney he is today because of entrepreneurs and small business owners who sacrificed and invested everything into making things better for the next generation by creating businesses. It should be no surprise then, that Christian is passionate about representing and helping business owners and entrepreneurs protect themselves and fight against bullies and opportunists that try to take advantage of them. Christian is driven by a genuine empathy and caring for people and he wants to do his very best to prevent the honest and hard-working people in his community from being taken advantage of by virtue of lack of experience or lack of knowledge.

Christian maintains an active presence in his community. He is an attorney member of Florida Bar Grievance Committee 11G, which is one of the committees in Miami-Dade County that investigates administrative claims filed by the public against an attorney for an alleged violation of the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar. He is also regularly appointed as an investigating member for the committee. Christian is a member of the Doral Chapter of the Florida Lawyers Network, serves on the executive board of the South Miami Kendall Bar Association as its Secretary, and is a member of the Coral Gables Chapter of Gentlemen’s Journal, which is an organization geared towards helping forge better men (of all career paths) rooted in the same values. Most recently, Christian joined the United Way of Miami’s Small Businesses United initiative where he has the opportunity to volunteer his time and efforts to helping the local community receive access to education and financial independence resources.

Christian’s passion is helping business owners fight off frivolous and potentially devasting cases. He has led the litigation team that successfully fended off a potential class action lawsuit for alleged violations of the TCPA, which would have crippled and destroyed a local chain. Additionally, he successfully defended a small business owner at trial who was being bullied by an unscrupulous seller that tried to take advantage of her and prevented this person from being able to steal his client’s business. Christian has helped several business owners negotiate and avoid potentially devasting damages in overtime cases and ADA Title III cases. Ultimately, Christian has had a lot of success protecting business owners—much like his grandparents—from losing all of their investment of time, hard work and honest equity and money. 

Christian has had the pleasure of receiving peer recognition for his work with business owners. He has been rated AV Preeminent by Martindale Hubbell in 2017, 2018 and 2019. This is an industry-wide standard used for identifying attorneys with top legal ability and ethics and is the highest recognition that can be issued by Martindale Hubbell. This is completely based on peer reviews of prior opposing counsel and other attorneys in the field.

Christian has also been selected by his peers to Super Lawyers’ “Rising Stars” List for Florida in 2017, 2018 and 2019, a distinction only given to 2.5% of all attorneys, and which relies primarily on peer nominations. On a more local scale, Christian was one of three finalists in the “Under the Age of 40” Category, Dade County Bar Association’s Legal Luminaries Awards (July 2016). He also maintains an AVVO Rating of 10.0. Due to the gracious peer recognition he has received, Christian has also had the opportunity to present to various legal professionals on topics ranging from A.D.A. Title III to Condominium Law. Christian has also been interviewed by the Daily Business Review, and that article was also republished by Yahoo! Finance.
