Cristina Rodriguez named one of 2018’s Premier Women in Law by the Association of Women Attorneys Foundation

Houston, TX, 27 March 2018 – Hogan Lovells partner Cristina Rodriguez has been named one of 2018’s Premier Women in Law by the Association of Women Attorneys Foundation. Rodriguez was recognized for her commitment to diversity in BigLaw and as a mentor to the next generation of Latina lawyers. She will be honored at the 7th Annual Premier Women in Law Luncheon on March 28, which coincides with Women’s History Month.

Currently serving as the Chair of the Recruitment Committee and the Diversity Coordinator for the firm’s Houston office, Rodriguez has leveraged her role to bring the issue of diversity to the forefront of hiring decisions. Her efforts have resulted in some of the most diverse summer classes of any law firm in Houston. In 2017, the summer program in the Houston office of Hogan Lovells was 65% female and 33% diverse – among the highest in the region. In 2018, the Houston summer program will be 50% female and 50% diverse.

A highly regarded first-chair trial lawyer, Rodriguez represents a diverse group of clients in complex disputes in state and federal court. She also handles sensitive internal investigations involving allegations of harassment, discrimination, fraud, and other violations of law or company policies. Until recently, she served on the Texas Supreme Court Advisory Committee, comprised of Texas judges and lawyers appointed by the court to advise it on rule-making issues.

Founded in 1976 to improve opportunities for women lawyers, the Association of Women Attorneys has emerged as a leading organization promoting the common business interests of women in the legal profession. The AWA Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships to women law students at each of the area’s three law schools and honors Houston women who have made remarkable contributions to the practice of law.
