Laura Benitez Geisler & Jody L. Rodenberg

Personal injury law has long been a specialty led by male lawyers. Today, women are influencing personal injury law in the Dallas area and beyond—Laura Benitez Geisler and Jody Rodenberg among them. Recognized by their peers as among the best personal injury lawyers in Dallas, Geisler and Rodenberg are driven by their passion to help others. These women have emerged as leaders in this area of law by combining their tenacity and legal acumen with an empathetic approach and perspective. Both are shaped in part by the wisdom gained from learning to balance the rigors of a demanding career with the dynamics of motherhood. “The ability to help people recover from an unforeseen injury or life-altering loss requires that we really understand how it has impacted their lives in order to more effectively advocate on their behalf,” Geisler says. “Big or small cases, we take pride in knowing we have given our clients a strong voice in the courtroom,” adds Rosenberg. Beyond the courtroom, Geisler has served as president of the Dallas Bar Association, the only Hispanic lawyer to hold that position in the organization’s 150-year history. Rodenberg, inspired to become a lawyer by her high school debate experience, is on the board of directors of the Dallas Urban Debate Alliance, which provides Dallas ISD students with the skills to become informed leaders in their communities.
