Annie Rodriguez is a Florida licensed attorney and Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator practicing primarily in family law matters.
Before Annie practiced law, she served in the US Navy for six years, and managed a manufacturing company for five years. Since pursuing a career in law, she has gained rich experiences as an attorney at a major family law firm in Jacksonville, and as a legal intern for the United States Attorney’s Office, the Fourth Judcial Circuit Office of the Public Defender and the Fourth Judicial Circuit General Magistrates. Those are her qualifications. Here is her story…
When Annie chose to pursue a career in law, her motivations were simple: to serve others by advocating for their needs, and to have her own business governed by the ideals she valued. When she enrolled in law school, she was a wife and mother, so she doubled down her efforts to pursue this dream. Her diligence and hard work paid off as she graduated in the top 3% of her law school class with Magna Cum Laude honors.
Upon becoming licensed, Annie worked in a family law firm in Jacksonville, Florida; but she quickly discovered that her ideals and career goals did not quite fit in with firm life. She wanted to meet and engage with clients and give them the time and energy that she felt they deserved. She wanted to have a relationship with clients that exceeded their expectations and improved their opinions of lawyers. These ideals did not seem possible with a firm because clients didn’t choose her personally, they chose the firm; and the volume of clients at a bigger firm does not exactly permit adequate time and energy investment.
At great risk but with total conviction, Annie peacefully left the firm and began developing her skills and setting her sights on creating a new kind of law firm. Which is where you come in…
