Laura Jiménez Solano, Lawyer
From a young age, Laura had a strong inclination towards equality, the study of literature, and anything related to humanity, the environment, and animal protection. This passion drove her to pursue a career in law, specializing as a criminal lawyer.
Criminal law opened her eyes to the conflicts in society, enabling her to witness the myriad of problems individuals face and the resulting situations that arise when personal issues intersect with legal matters. Acts of violence, aggression, and deprivation of liberty are just some of the consequences that can stem from these conflicts. In a democratic state like Costa Rica, it is vital for people to have the right to a defense and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Therefore, it is essential to possess the necessary skills and knowledge to defend and represent individuals whose rights have been infringed upon.
Laura derives great satisfaction from defending and protecting others while upholding the principles of the law. During her studies, she gained practical experience by working as a legal assistant for criminal lawyers. Subsequently, she advanced to become a junior lawyer and later served as a prosecutor for eight years. It was during this time that she pursued a master’s degree in criminal rights and also acquired expertise in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), eco-analysis, and human behavior. These additional areas of knowledge-empowered her professional growth.
She learned not to view individuals solely as perpetrators of crimes but also to consider the underlying causes that led them to commit those actions. This broader perspective allowed her to become a more compassionate lawyer, expanding her possibilities to approach cases from a holistic standpoint.
Eventually, Laura made the decision to resign from her role as a prosecutor and establish her own law practice, where she could apply all the valuable lessons she had learned. Her approach involves looking at her clients’ issues through a holistic lens, considering not only the legal aspects but also taking into account their overall well-being.
Laura’s commitment to her clients extends beyond legal representation. She strives to understand their unique circumstances, aiming to provide comprehensive solutions to their problems. By combining her legal expertise with a holistic approach, she endeavors to make a positive impact in their lives.

Edsson Rodríguez, Lawyer & Criminologist
Edsson Rodríguez is a professional who wears two hats – that of a criminologist and a lawyer. He embarked on his academic journey by studying criminology and law, driven by an insatiable curiosity about the causes and origins of crimes. What factors could lead an individual to commit such acts? The intricacies of this social phenomenon, the relationship between the perpetrator, society, and the victim, always fascinated him.
His path as a criminologist led him to work as a judicial investigator for the Costa Rican Judicial Police for over nine years. During this time, he delved into the realm of criminal investigation, gaining invaluable practical experience. However, driven by a desire to ensure that victims of crimes had access to justice through expert legal defense, Edsson decided to pursue a law degree. He believed that a solid legal foundation would allow him to offer professional and technical defense to those in need.
With more than twelve years of experience working within the judiciary, Edsson eventually made the bold decision to leave his position and venture into the private sector. Together with his partner Laura, they established a practice that stands out for its unique approach. They go beyond the traditional legal aspect, recognizing the importance of providing holistic support and counseling to their clients.
