Currently, Rodriquez serves as both the chief deputy attorney general for legal affairs and chief assistant attorney general for the department's public rights division. As chief deputy attorney general, he oversees more than 1,100 attorneys. The public rights division handles cases involving consumer, environmental, antitrust, civil rights and charitable trust matters.

Rodriquez has served with California's Department of Justice since 1987.

According to the July 12th article, ''Brown taps Justice Department attorney from Castro Valley to head CalEPA'', Annie Notthoff, the National Resources Defense Council's California advocacy director was quoted as saying: ''He knows what he's doing, and I think it's going to be good for the state.'' She explained further his experience will be crucial as ''he manages the complex tasks of developing, implementing and enforcing some of the nation's toughest environmental protection laws to ensure clean air, water and soil, safe pesticides, and waste recycling and reduction.''

In his role as a deputy attorney general from 1987 to 1999, Rodriquez represented the attorney general's office and its Land Law Section clients, including the California Coastal Commission, State Lands Commission, and the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission. From 1999 to 2008, he oversaw the Land Law Section as a senior assistant attorney general.

Attorney General Kamala Harris was quoted as saying: ''As he transitions from lawyer to client, I look forward to a continued working relationship with him as both offices endeavor to protect California's environment.''

Linda Adams has served as CalEPA's secretary since Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed her in May 2006.

According to information at the organization's website, the California Environmental Protection Agency was created in 1991 by a Governor's Executive Order. Its six Boards, Departments and Office create a cabinet level voice for the protection of human health and the environment and to assure the coordinated deployment of State resources. Its mission is to restore, protect and enhance the environment, and to ensure public health, environmental quality and economic vitality.

Success Stories

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
