Mayelin Rodriguez was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. Mayelin became a licensed attorney in her country of origin and then moved to South Florida to pursue better life opportunities. Mayelin knew that there was no other career path she wanted to pursue that was not the practice of law, so she became a licensed attorney in the State of Florida.
Mayelin earned her Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, from Nova Southeastern University’s Shepard Broad College of Law. While in law school, she served as Associate Bilingual Editor of the ILSA Journal of International and Comparative Law.
Prior to becoming an attorney, Mayelin worked in complex Engle-progeny tobacco cases as a litigation paralegal for almost six years. She currently focuses her practice in In re Zantac (Ranitidine) Products Liability Litigation, a case that involves thousands of individual personal injury and class-wide economic loss claims arising from FDA’s mandated withdrawal of all Zantac and ranitidine drugs from the U.S. market.
