“I WILL FIGHT TO PROTECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS UNDER THE LAW.”
Criminal Defense Attorney in West Palm Beach
Valentin Rodriguez, P.A.
Board Certified Criminal Trial Attorney
Val has handled federal criminal cases for over 20 years and has handled well over 250 federal cases to completion. He originally joined a panel of the Criminal Justice Act in 1998 and has been assigned federal cases regularly since that time. He has successfully defended several clients in federal court on drug offense charges, resulting in acquittals and hung juries. He has handled all sorts of complex federal criminal cases, as well as appeals.
He is experienced in complex fraud cases, having handled cases where the intended and actual fraud loss has approached $1 billion. For example, in the Mutual Benefits Corporation fraud case, his client was acquitted of all 54 federal charges while the co-defendant was convicted of 19 of those charges. See Recent Verdicts. The loss amount alleged in that case was over $800 million. He recently litigated a complex $300 million developer and bank fraud case, which resulted in the spouse’s acquittal, a retrial for the CEO, and a pending appeal in the 11th Circuit. In that case, the foremost expert in bank fraud testified about how major banks perpetuated the bank fraud on themselves.
