Biography

Jessica I. Rodriguez-Wahlquist is a passionate advocate who refuses to back down from a fight until a just settlement or verdict is reached. Jessica is a native Spanish speaker born in Guadalajara, Mexico, and raised in Houston, Texas. She represents her clients with an unparallel might as she truly understands what it is like to be injured by the wrongful actions of others. In the summer after her high school graduation, Jessica was severely injured in a car collision caused by the negligence of a distracted driver. Jessica could not walk for weeks, lost a college scholarship opportunity, and was overwhelmed by the legal issues as a young immigrant. She then made it her mission to become a personal injury attorney and give a voice to her community.
Immediately upon becoming a licensed attorney, Jessica gathered the respect of her peers and opponents. Within less than 2 years of practicing law, she was selected for the prestigious accolades of Super Lawyers Rising Star and The National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 –distinctions often hard to achieve by most attorneys. Jessica’s motto is “quality over quantity.” As a result, she inspects every case with a fine-tooth comb approach. She is often referred cases by other attorneys for her ability to find overlooked claims, angles and strategies, her ability to maximize a client’s recovery, and resolving nearly impossible cases.
Jessica has worked at some of the largest personal injury and commercial litigation firms in Houston and Chicago, assisting with dozens of multi-million-dollar personal injury, mass torts, and commercial dispute cases. She has worked for both plaintiff’s and defense firms. Jessica has represented clients against major corporations in airplane crashes, train collisions, 18-wheeler collisions, traumatic brain injuries, fatalities caused by drunk drivers......
