Biography

Profile

For Amanda Rodriguez, there’s nothing like taking on a formidable challenge to help people rebuild their lives. From severe accidents on the news to injuries that no one will hear about, she puts everything on the line to fight for her clients. As a child in Laredo, she watched her family serve the community with devotion. Today, she continues that legacy by taking on the world’s biggest companies to help regular people.

Amanda attended Texas A&M International University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts (2015) in English and Political Science. Throughout her undergraduate studies, Amanda participated in Harvard Model United Nations conferences and the International Public Debate Association, where she won a national title.

Amanda pursued her lifelong goal of becoming a lawyer by enrolling at Georgetown University Law Center. While in law school, Amanda served as an assistant editor of the Georgetown Technology Law Review and was a part of Georgetown’s Institute for Public Representation Clinic where she worked on civil rights cases, including employment and gender discrimination matters. Working on civil rights cases ignited Amanda’s passion to practice law meaningfully and represent clients who had suffered grave injustices.

During her time in the nation’s capital, Amanda interned as a law clerk at the U.S. House of Representatives. She also served Washington D.C.’s inner-city youth as a part of Georgetown’s Street Law program where she taught constitutional law to local high school students and led them to compete in a city-wide mock trial tournament. Amanda began her legal career as a Georgetown Law Fellow at Catholic Charities’ of Galveston-Houston’s St. Frances Cabrini Center for Immigrant Legal Assistance.

During her time at Cabrini, Amanda represented indigent clients in immigration proceedings before the Executive Office of Immigration Review and the United States and Citizenship Immigration Services. Amanda assisted dozens of unaccompanied children seeking asylum or had been trafficked into the United States.

In her spare time, Amanda continues to volunteer with Catholic Charities and is a member of the Mexican-American Bar Association of Houston. When she is not advocating on behalf of others, Amanda enjoys jogging, cooking, and spending time with her nieces and nephews. Amanda is a native Spanish speaker.
