Christine Rodriguez joined The Noble Law in the summer of 2019 after 20 years as a litigator and representing clients in all aspects of employment law in New York.
Christine started out as a prosecutor with the New York County District Attorney’s Office. When she left public service to join the private sector, Christine joined a mid-size New York City firm where she negotiated, defended, and litigated general commercial liability claims, complex construction cases, premises liability claims and employment claims.
In 2007, she opened up her own litigation practice in New York City, focused primarily on representing employees in all types of employment law matters. As an employment attorney, she has represented clients at the EEOC, the New York State Division of Human Rights, through the EEO process at several Federal agencies, in New York State Courts, the Federal District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Christine has been up against many of the larger firms in New York and repeatedly achieved favorable results for her clients.
Christine has family in Charlotte and in 2018 — lured in no small part by the sweet tea, the warmer climate, and the irresistible charms of the Queen City — she decided to expand her practice in North Carolina.
Christine is now in The Noble Law’s Charlotte office and will be handling matters in our New York City employment law firm office as well.
In addition to her years of experience handling employment matters in New York City, Christine is a skilled negotiator who has handled all manner of contract negotiations and mediations for both employment and other civil litigation matters and an accomplished trial attorney who has successfully tried many cases in her criminal and civil practice. Christine takes a practical, and when necessary, aggressive approach to litigation to get the results that the clients she represents need to move forward.
She brings to The Noble Law a valuable perspective on the New York market, skills which she now uses in Charlotte to anticipate the tactics and strategies of companies with strong ties to New York.
Christine is an unapologetic dog lover and she spends her free time enjoying the dog park and greenways in Charlotte with her Golden Retriever/Dachshund mix babies Oscar and Spencer. She also enjoys learning Tai Chi, occasionally indoor sky-diving, and annoying her family with her favorite pastime — singing in the car.
