Workers Compensation, Personal Injury
Juan C. Rodríguez, Esq., is a bilingual attorney, fluent in Spanish, who represents clients in both personal injury and workers compensation matters. He is a member of the American Bar Association, Pennsylvania Bar Association, the Philadelphia Bar Association, the Hispanic Bar Association of PA, and is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania and the Supreme Court of New Jersey (inactive). Juan’s pro bono activities include volunteer work with the Wills for Heroes and Wills for Survivors Programs, drafting estate planning documents, advanced directives, and powers of attorney for first responders, military personnel, and disaster survivors.
Juan earned his law degree from Temple University Beasley School of Law in 2013, where he was a Conwell Scholar, distinguished himself in the Temple Law Trial Advocacy Program, and was a member of both the Latin American Law Student Association and the Tax Law Society. He completed a criminal defense clinical at the Defender Association of Philadelphia, where he successfully represented clients at preliminary hearings and Philadelphia Municipal Court trials. Juan also earned both an LL.M. in taxation, and an estate planning certification, from Temple University Beasley School of Law (2015).
In addition to his legal training, Juan received a B.A. in sociology from the Pennsylvania State University in 2004, an M.A. in History (ABT) from East Stroudsburg University in 2005, and an M.A. in Political Science from Lehigh University in 2006.
Juan spent his formative years living in the Lehigh Valley, and his summers with family in Puerto Rico. He enjoys food, travel and cultural immersion. He leads an active lifestyle, enjoys playing basketball, soccer and golf, and takes advantage of any opportunity to hike or camp. When in need of quiet to let the mind wander, he’s often found wading in a stream, knee deep in a current, hoping the cast of a fly will land him with a prize winning trout, or at least a momentary respite from worries.
