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.

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.
