“I have always loved trial work, because I love to tell stories, and each of our clients has a story to tell. They just need someone to word it in such a way that other people will listen.
For thirteen years I was a prosecutor of persons who committed crimes, in my personal effort to protect the innocent. I view my current position, as a plaintiff’s personal injury attorney, in much the same way, as a protector of the innocent. While the perpetrator might not have committed an intentional crime, in most instances, the defendant has made a choice, and for reasons, such as inattention, lack of appropriate care, or simply greed, that choice has caused someone to be harmed and injured. That person has no less of a right to be protected than the victim of a crime.
What I most enjoy about what I do, is seeing the smile on our client’s faces when we present them with a check. In most instances the amount of money that our clients get can never make them whole again, cannot bring back the person they once were, but it is some measure of justice, and recognition for the hurt that they suffered. My goal for my clients is always justice.
These days, a lot of my work involves traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs. Observing the life-altering effects that these “invisible injuries” have on people, can be very sad to see. The consequences of such an injury can be devastating, but, what makes it worse, is that many times people do not believe, or understand the victim. One of my responsibilities is to work with clients, so that people do believe them.” -Ronald Rosenkranz, Esq.
