Adam Rossol once worked for the other side. At the beginning of his legal career, he was employed by a large law firm that defended insurance companies in personal injury cases. He worked, in other words, to defeat the claims of people with serious injuries. It did not take him long to realize this was not why he had gone into law. He wanted to help people, and he felt he was doing exactly the opposite.
Still, by the time Adam changed sides — when he started representing plaintiffs — he knew his experience gave him a real advantage over other personal injury lawyers. He understood how the insurance companies worked — how they evaluate injury claims and make decisions about which claims to fight and which to settle.
Adam’s clients now enjoy the benefits of that knowledge — and those benefits are significant. He has unusual insight into what needs to be done to reach a favorable settlement. He knows when to use alternative dispute resolution — mediation and arbitration — to speed up the process and bring much-needed certainty to his client’s situation.
A true “people person,” Adam engages his clients fully in their own cases. He carefully explains their options — in plain English, not “legalese” — making sure they understand every step in the process. And, while he goes to great lengths to avoid the risk and uncertainty of a trial, the courtroom is where he is most at home. A born trial lawyer, Adam relates easily with judges, jurors, and even adversaries — all in the interest of getting the best possible settlement for his clients.
