A Rising Star : Lawyer Sonia Rodriguez

One of the first things you notice upon entering Sonia Rodriguez’s office is a model of the human spine and hipbones. It’s not something you expect to see in a lawyer’s office, but it is relevant to her line of work. “Right now I represent an individual who was injured in a car collision,” explains Rodriguez, a partner and shareholder at the downtown Branton & Hall law firm. “He has herniated discs, but he doesn’t quite understand his own injuries.

Instead, she’s pursuing a profession associated with Ben Franklin or, at best, the Watergate scandal of 30-plus years ago.

An Artful Blend : Contemporary furniture, Latino art update ‘20s home

The Monte Vista home of Henry Muñoz is a “sketch that is always evolving,” says the owner. As chairman of the board of directors and CEO of Kell Muñoz Architects, Inc., and an award-winning designer, he knows whereof he speaks. Since purchasing the circa 1922 house 15 years ago, he has made it uniquely his own. Russell Brown was the architect for the Tudor dwelling.
