Alejandro J. Rodríguez, Associate

Associate Alejandro J. Rodríguez has over ten years of experience defending a variety of cases in the areas of personal injury, workers’ compensation, trucking and transportation law, premises liability, and insurance defense. He is also experienced in defending claims arising under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, Defense Base Act, and War Hazards Compensation Act. Alejandro has successfully argued many cases before the Louisiana Courts of Appeal, including the First and Fifth Circuit, in an effort to secure favorable results for his clients who were treated unfairly at the state level.

Alejandro adamantly believes that the best way to protect his clients’ interests is through providing them with a complete and efficient response to their inquiries in the most expedient manner. “Clients who have worked with me know that they can reach me day or night, and they will not wait long before receiving a response to their questions or concerns.”

Alejandro was born and raised in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and is fluent in Spanish. He enjoys spending time with his wife and their children and is very involved in their extracurricular activities. He loves to cook and is a huge Saints fan. Alejandro regularly donates his time and resources to a number of non-profit organizations, including the NOLA lab rescue, fostering and finding “forever” homes for abandoned dogs.
