Our mission is to empower Latinas to develop their business and professional goals through education and collaboration. Our vision is to meet the needs of the growing ranks of Latina Entrepreneurs, Executives, Professionals and the Youth from the Inland Empire and to Create Unity in Diversity and Prosperity.
Candice Garcia-Rodrigo is President of NLBWA Inland Empire. She is also a probate & business law attorney licensed in California and Hawaii, with offices in the San Bernardino area.
After graduating in the top five percent of her class from the La Verne College of Law she worked as an associate attorney before starting her own firm. A lawyer since 2007, Candice founded the Rodrigo Law Firm on the basis that all clients are entitled to the highest level of respect and service. She recognizes that one of the most common complaints against lawyers is the failure to regularly communicate with clients. This is why she enacted policies that ensure that all phone calls and emails are promptly responded to (typically on the same business day), and that clients receive copies of all court documents.
Candice is certified as a Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization, and she holds a Masters of Science in Leadership & Management, and a Masters in Public Administration. This combination gives her a unique and creative skill set in problem-solving.
