Meet Our Staff

Ramiro Rodriguez, Jr. – Owner

Most of us have a childhood moment that inspires us to think about who we would be when we grew up. For Attorney Ramiro Rodriguez, it was when he was seven years old and was accompanying his uncle to a consultation with an attorney. Not only was the attorney very vague about his uncle’s rights, he wanted to be paid first, in cash, and would not even give a receipt! At that time, young Ramiro was worried the attorney would not help his uncle, and might even steal from him. His uncle was more scared and confused after he hired the attorney!

Attorney Rodriguez will always remember that moment. That is why GA Injury Advocates treats each and every person who comes to us for help like they are a best friend. Friends are there when you need them. And so are we.

Ramiro Rodriguez, Jr. is a native-born Texan who was born in McAllen, Texas and graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Texas A&M. He then went on to earn his J.D. from John Marshall School of Law, where he was an active member of the law review and graduated cum laude.

As a compassionate personal injury lawyer, Ramiro Rodriguez, Jr. is an efficient and effective warrior for justice. He has personally tried cases ranging from automobile and tractor-trailer accidents, to slip and falls and dog bites, and welcomes the opportunity to advocate for you too.

Ivette Sanchez – Legal Assistant 

Ivette joined our team in March of 2013. She has been in an auto accident, so she is aware of the stress and anxiety it can cause. As a result, she does not want her clients to feel overwhelmed or alone in this process. She knows frequent updates and communication are a crucial part of bringing clients comfort during a stressful situation.

Away from work, Ivette is a proud mother of two children.  She also enjoys watching movies and playing soccer.

Erick Lara Paiz – Legal Assistant

Erick joined Georgia Injury Advocates team in October 2017. After a traumatic experience being involved in an automobile accident, he decided to help others in the same situation.

Karen Rodriguez – Office Administrator

Karen was born in Texas where she graduated from Texas A&M University.  She was a high school teacher for many years.  When her sons were born, she left her job to take care them and several months later she went to work for UPS where she learned the importance of administration and more important customer service.    With no law experience but a lot of office administrative experience, she feels she brings a different perspective to the firm.

Her job here is liaison function to make sure that communication is never forgotten.  This may be staff to staff, staff to client or client to staff.  Her job is to assure an environment that is both efficient and effective and allows the firm to provide the best possible service to our clients.
