Why Choose the Rodriguez Law Group If You’re Facing Criminal Charges in Hollywood
Defense Strategies Designed By a Former Prosecutor
Before defending clients against criminal charges in California, Ambrosio Rodriguez spent more than 13 years as a prosecutor. He understands what you’re up against because, for a time, he was the system. After spending more than a decade prosecuting the very cases he defends today, he has a unique insight and perspective into California’s penal code and criminal procedures. That’s experience and knowledge he draws on every single day in defense of clients just like you.
When you hire the team at the Rodriguez Law Group, you can benefit from a defense strategy that’s crafted and formulated by a former Senior Deputy District Attorney. Ambrosio Rodriguez knows how the state will approach criminal charges and build a case. In turn, he also knows where those cases might be weak. He can exploit those weaknesses in your favor and give you the best shot at clearing your name.
Every Case Gets a Personal Touch
When you choose an attorney to represent you and defend you against criminal charges, you’re making a very personal decision. The decision is likely motivated by the fact that you feel confident in and comfortable with the attorney’s ability to help you during this very scary time. What you might not know is that many lawyers in Hollywood don’t personally handle the cases they take on. Instead, many lawyers have interns, support staff, and paralegals do the legwork. That’s not what you signed up for – and that’s not what happens when you hire the Rodriguez Law Group.
At the Rodriguez Law Group, our attorneys know what you choose us for a reason. You trust us. We want you to know that when you hire Ambrosio Rodriguez, he’s the one who will do the lion’s share of the work. He becomes personally invested in the cases he handles.

Hollywood, CA Crime Statistics
Hollywood – it’s the film capital of the world. Thousands of people call Hollywood home. The city welcomes millions of tourists every year, eager to take in the glitz and glamor of Tinseltown. However, Hollywood isn’t the safest place in the great state of California. Compared to Los Angeles, California, and the rest of the United States, crime is much more common there. That might be why Hollywood gets an “F” when it comes to safety and crime.
In 2018, there were 5,458 reported criminal offenses in Hollywood. Those crimes are broken down into two categories – property and violent. Crime statistics reveal that more than 3 out of every 4 crimes in Hollywood is a property offense – such as burglary or theft. Assault, robbery, rape, murder, and other violent crimes only account for 24 percent of all offenses in Hollywood.
We Handle All Criminal Matters in Hollywood
Domestic Violence: Allegations of domestic violence can change your life forever. A conviction can ruin your reputation, land you behind bars, and even lead to the loss of the right to spend time with your family. The best way to stop these things from happening is by defending yourself aggressively. In these types of cases, the state might not have a lot of hard evidence to support its case. Rather, prosecutors might rely on accusations, alone. Our team will work diligently to identify irregularities in those accusations and undermine the accuser’s believability.
Drug Crimes: The war on drugs is still very much in force in California. A conviction can have devastating consequences for your future, impacting your ability to get an education, find gainful employment, and live an uncomplicated life. Our attorneys know that it’s essential to attack the evidence in these types of cases. That’s why we’ll analyze how the police handled their investigation, your arrest, and any searches that were conducted. If we can identify a violation of your rights, we can petition the court to toss evidence that’s been tainted.
DUI: You don’t have to be drunk to get convicted on DUI charges in Hollywood. It’s enough if a police officer thinks that you’re impaired. However, drunk driving vehicle stops, searches, tests, and arrests are hardly straightforward. There are a lot of moving parts. That can be good news for you – because officers and/or the state often make mistakes. Our team will carefully analyze your DUI case from start to finish to identify some weaknesses or errors that can be exploited in your favor.
Federal Crimes: When you’re charged with a federal offense, it’s important to make sure that you hire an attorney who has experience navigating the federal court system. The rules and laws are different, any mistake can be a disaster for your future. At the Rodriguez Law Group, we’ve handled countless criminal cases in federal courts across the state, securing positive results for our clients along the way.
Juvenile Crimes: Kids make mistakes. Our attorneys don’t think that those mistakes should be punished harshly. However, without a strong defense in juvenile court, your child’s future could be in danger. Our team has helped countless families navigate the juvenile justice system in Los Angeles County. Let us advocate for your child and help them secure the best possible outcome in their juvenile case.
Restraining Orders: Violating a restraining order is a serious crime. And, it’s one that’s not taken lightly by the court. So, unless you can offer a legitimate defense, explanation, or justification, the consequences imposed can be quite severe. Our attorneys will help you advocate for yourself in court, fighting to minimize or avoid any penalties.
Sex Crimes: Few crimes are taken more seriously than those involving sex. Whether you’ve been accused of child molestation, rape, or sexual assault, the state will do everything in its power to convict. A conviction can have lifelong consequences, especially if you’re required to register as a sex offender. However, just because you’re arrested doesn’t mean your future is over. Evidence in these cases is often circumstantial or unreliable. Our attorneys will carefully review all aspects of the charges against you, interview witnesses, and exploit any weaknesses in the state’s case or evidence to help you.
Theft Crimes: Theft crimes are more common than other offenses in Hollywood. They’re also challenging to prove. That’s because the state has the burden of proving that you acted with intent. That can be hard to do, especially if there is a lack of evidence to support those allegations. Our team will work day and night to make the prosecutor’s job as tough as possible, challenging their efforts to convict at every turn.
Violent Crimes: Prosecutors will be under a great deal of pressure to convict if you’ve been charged with assault, homicide, or another violent offense. So, they’ll invest whatever time and resources are necessary to get the result they want. Our team will do the same in your defense. We’ll investigate carefully, bring in experts to help at every stage, and identify any possible defense strategy that might work. We’ll counter the state’s every move, making it as difficult as possible to satisfy the burden of proof.
White Collar Crimes: White-collar crimes might be “victimless,” but that doesn’t mean that they’re taken any less seriously in Hollywood. Crimes like fraud, identity theft, and embezzlement can do considerable financial harm, so expect the state to do anything it can to win. Keep in mind that white collar offenses are particularly complicated. Prosecutors have a tough job in front of them. Our team will do everything possible to make that job even more challenging. We’ll not only present evidence to discredit the allegations against you, but also to undermine the state’s case in any way that we can.
