Magi Rodriguez joins the Missouri offices of DiPasquale Moore as a tenacious defender of the wrongfully injured and the marginalized. With her fluency in English and Spanish, she is able to help people from various communities and backgrounds with all sorts of personal injury claims. Attorney Rodriguez also has experience with criminal defense and immigration cases, which can sometimes intersect with personal injury law in unexpected ways.
From a young age, Magi was passionate about helping people in need and using her voice for good. As an attorney with DiPasquale Moore, she takes the time to connect to every client, so every case is given personalized attention, no matter how similar it might be compared to other such cases. Born and raised on the south Texas border of Brownsville, and then moving to the Midwest for university, Magi learned the value of appreciating cultures, and how that can tie into a client’s experience during a case.
Before joining DiPasquale Moore, Attorney Rodriguez has worked in respected law firms, under Honorable Judges, and even with the Midwest Innocent Project Wrongful Convictions Clinic and the Heartland Center for Jobs and Freedom Eviction Defense Team. As a law clerk for the Honorable Justine E. Del Muro in the 16th Circuit Court of Jackson County, MO, she managed more than 200 civil cases to assist the Judge. With the Midwest Innocent Project, Attorney Rodriguez was able to help reverse the wrongful conviction of a 41-year-old man who had been in a Wyandotte County prison since he was just 17.
Magi attended Graceland University for a B.A. before completing her J.D. at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law.
When she has spare time, Magi tries to stay involved with the Independence soccer community, especially during the high school season. At the request of various teachers, she has spoken to students about her legal career, too.
