Jessica Rodriguez-Wahlquist

Jessica I. Rodriguez-Wahlquist is passionate about helping injured individuals.  In 2010, she was the victim of a catastrophic car accident as a result of the negligence of a pizza delivery driver.  Mrs. Rodriguez-Wahlquist was unable to walk for weeks, could not sleep, lost a college scholarship opportunity, and was overwhelmed by the legal issues.  After seeing her mentor aggressively litigate her case, she decided to become an attorney and defend victims of personal injuries like herself. She truly understands her clients’ struggles.

Mrs. Rodriguez-Wahlquist focuses her practice on serious injuries, including but not limited to catastrophic personal injury, products liability, and wrongful death claims.   Mrs. Rodriguez-Wahlquist is licensed in Texas state courts and the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

Mrs. Rodriguez-Wahlquist has worked at many other prominent civil litigation firms in Houston and Chicago assisting with thousands of multi-million-dollar personal injury, mass tort, and commercial dispute cases. She is known for being an aggressive litigator who refuses to take no for an answer.  She prides herself in her constant desire to find new creative litigation strategies.

Mrs. Rodriguez-Wahlquist is a native Spanish speaker born in Guadalajara, Mexico and raised in Houston, Texas.  She graduated with a double degree in Economics and International Business from Sam Houston State University.  After college, she was offered a $90,000.00 scholarship to DePaul University College of Law in Chicago. During her third year at DePaul Law, she became a visiting student at South Texas College of Law Houston where she was chosen to be part of the #1 moot court team in the nation amongst many other extracurricular activities.  There, she went on to compete across the nation where she gathered an extensive list of awards as a result of her outstanding performance advocating in a variety of issues like protecting second amendment rights, negotiating a $2.25 billion stock acquisition deal, and defending immigrant rights.

Mrs. Rodriguez-Wahlquist is currently a member of AAJ, TTLA, HTLA, and four different HBA committees. She also volunteers as a coach for South Texas College of Law’s Varsity Moot Court Team. Outside of work she enjoys traveling with her spouse and two puppies, and has met five presidents from the United States, Mexico, Croatia, and Ghana.
