Eric S. Rosen is a Florida Bar Board Certified civil trial lawyer and partner at Kelley|Uustal. As lead trial attorney, Mr. Rosen has obtained over $90 million in jury verdicts for his clients.

Career

Mr. Rosen received his undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona in Tucson. After graduating summa cum laude from Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center, he began his legal career at the Office of the State Attorney in Broward County, Florida. During his tenure as an Assistant State Attorney, Mr. Rosen immersed himself in the courtroom, going to trial in dozens of cases. Mr. Rosen left public service to pursue his passion in helping people who have been catastrophically injured or lost loved ones as a result of someone else’s misconduct.

Mr. Rosen is a graduate of the renowned Trial Lawyer’s College established by Gerry Spence, one of the country’s premiere trial lawyers. The Trial Lawyer’s College is an intensive three and a half week trial program held at Thunderhead Ranch in Dubois, Wyoming, where selected lawyers practice honing trial skills from voir dire to closing argument.

As lead trial attorney, Mr. Rosen has obtained over $90 million in jury verdicts for his clients.  In 2017, he was lead trial counsel in the landmark product liability case, Gentile v. Philip Morris, where the jury determined that Philip Morris – the number one cigarette manufacturer in the U.S. – engaged in fraudulent misconduct concerning the health effects and addictive nature of “light” and “low tar” cigarettes.  The jury awarded the Gentile family $7.1 million in damages for the loss of Brenda Gentile, a wife and mother of four.

Mr. Rosen appreciates the sacrifices jurors make in their personal lives to serve our justice system. With that in mind, he incorporates a streamlined approach in trial to make jury service a profound, lasting, and enjoyable experience for jurors.

Background

Eric was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to Parkland, Florida in 1995. He currently lives in Davie with his wife and two kids. Outside of spending time with his family, Eric enjoys writing about his experiences in court and teaching law students and lawyers about trial practice.
