Kevin Rodriguez is a trust and estate litigation attorney, specializing in the representation of trustees, executors, beneficiaries, conservators and conservatees in contested trust, estate, conservatorship, and elder abuse matters.
While Kevin now focuses his practice squarely on litigation matters, he also has an extensive background as a trust, estate and tax planning attorney (including a Masters of Laws degree in taxation). This unique background as a planner-turned-litigator allows Kevin to combine a results-driven approach to trust and estate litigation, with a full understanding of the source of the issues in a given matter. “Trust and estate litigation allows me the opportunity to utilize my technical background, while working closely with individuals and families to solve personal and difficult issues.”
In 2011, a California appellate court published its opinion in a winning appeal on which Kevin served as lead co-counsel. In Estate of Dito, the court of appeal held that the family of a decedent was not barred under res judicata from bringing an elder abuse claim against a decedent’s wife because of an earlier ruling by the court holding that the wife was entitled to a share of the decedent’s estate as an omitted spouse.
Why Hopkins & Carley?
“I wanted to be at a firm that combined the collegiality and responsiveness of a small law firm with the resources and complexity of cases found at a large law firm.”
“My father is an attorney and I always appreciated his ability to work through issues logically.”
