About Us

Roxanne Rodriguez

Rocky founded 575 Law Group in 2005, originally as Lara Law Firm. A native of Carlsbad, Rocky has served her community for more than 20 years through legal representation and community service. Rocky has represented clients in several different areas, maintaining a general practice of law in her hometown, assisting clients with everything from Adoptions to Civil Rights Litigation. Rocky enjoys courtroom litigation most but strives to serve the legal needs of community members in the best way possible. Rocky is a recovering politician, having served as an Eddy County Commissioner and a nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives. Rocky has served on and led many boards, including the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce, Carlsbad Medical Center, Carlsbad Department of Development, and is a member of the Downtown Lions Club and local AAUW branch. Rocky has represented New Mexico on women’s leaderships initiatives and served on national committees addressing energy issues. Rocky has received numerous awards, being named Best Lawyer in Carlsbad, New Business of the Year, and earning special awards for service to Carlsbad, service to Veterans, and as a Woman Leader and Trailblazer. Rocky earned her Bachelor’s degree from NMSU, majoring in journalism and mass communications with a supplemental degree in law and society. It was at Texas Tech Law School where she developed a deep love for both the law and the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Rocky is an avid (or perhaps rabid) fan of Texas Tech Football. She loves fast cars, guitars, and living life out loud—and spending time chasing her two Australian Shepards, Blue and Mylo. Most importantly she is a believer in what’s right is right, what’s wrong is wrong, and that no one is above the law. Rocky’s areas of practice include Personal Injury, Wrongful Death, Civil Rights, Family Law, Estate Planning and Probate and Business Services.
