Biography

Rafael is a proud native of a small town in West Texas (Fort Stockton), where he spent his youth camping in Big Bend National Park and on drilling rigs with his father learning the oil and gas industry that has long-fueled much of the West Texas economy. Rafael credits his work ethic and “never-say-die” attitude to his parents, both of whom worked blue-collar jobs during Rafael’s adolescence to help their children succeed.

Rafael left home to play Division I football in the Big XII Conference, where he received several accolades for his performance on and off the field, including being selected as an Arthur Ashe Sports Scholar and recognized multiple times on the Big XII Honor Roll.

After college, Rafael returned home to work as a roughneck on a drilling rig before attending Baylor Law School.

During his first year of law school, Rafael lost his only brother in a tragic ATV accident. Despite this setback, Rafael returned to school one week later and eventually competed on several national moot court and mock trial teams. Rafael was recognized for his outstanding performance on Baylor Law School’s moot court and mock trial teams, including winning several best brief awards and several top oral advocate awards.

After practicing law in Texas at some of the largest law offices in Texas for nearly a decade, Rafael decided it was time to write the next chapter of his life-long pursuit of excellence and justice. Rafael formed Rodriguez Legal, PLLC with the goal of providing his clients with the same, top-notch legal service that he had provided at his former large firms.

Among his clients, colleagues, and opponents, Rafael is known for being a confident, zealous and relentless advocate, qualities which he attributes to his upbringing in West TX, and his experience as a college athlete & working in the West TX oilfields. He is respected in the courtroom and thrives on his feet talking with judges/juries.
