David Rosen: Personal Injury Attorney

David Rosen is the President-Elect of the Oregon Law Foundation, current Chair of the Deschutes County Access to Justice Committee, and was elected to the 2021 Oregon State Bar Board of Governors. Most recently, David was asked to serve on the OSB’s Quality of Life Committee, and was honored to have been selected to the 2020 Oregon Super Lawyers list.

EXPERIENCED CIVIL LITIGATOR AND PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY

David began his career in the legal field in 2001, working as an economist for a large, Washington, D.C. firm on the Department of Justice’s RICO case against the Tobacco companies. David would later be hired by that same firm as a summer associate. Upon graduation from law school, he was then hired as an associate assisting in the representation of Fortune 500 companies in the fields of internet service providers, telecommunication companies, and major retailers of household goods.

In 2010 David returned to Central Oregon with his family, where he has exclusively practiced personal injury law since 2011. While many civil attorneys seldom get to court, David has arbitrated and mediated injury and accident cases throughout a good deal of Oregon and tried cases to 12-person juries in Deschutes, Jackson, Josephine, and Klamath counties.

EXPERT LEGAL REPRESENTATION

Leveraging a well-rounded background in law, economics, and damage theories, David combines Big Law training with the heart of a person who has gone through the legal process as a plaintiff. He delivers fierce representation for his clients, drawing from this extensive legal experience to advocate for victims of motor vehicle collisions, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, slip and falls, product liability issues and other negligence. David has successfully negotiated, mediated, settled and arbitrated numerous injury cases with all the big insurance companies and established a reputation of providing top notch representation in a uniquely compassionate manner.
