Michael P. Dorsey, Esq., joined The Rothenberg Law Firm LLP in 2015. Michael has been a trial attorney since graduating from law school in 1997, and is a veteran of dozens of jury trials. He has had the privilege of working with, and being mentored by, several distinguished trial lawyers in Philadelphia and South Jersey. Prior to joining The Rothenberg Law Firm, Michael’s experience was primarily defending the interests of insurance companies for eighteen (18) years, and thus brings to the firm a great deal of insight into how the insurance companies operate in the handling of claims of accident victims. He would frequently lecture insurance claims professionals in the area of risk management and litigation practices. Michael has since made the choice to devote the next phase of his legal career to assisting injured people in the area of personal injury law, with an emphasis on auto accidents, premises liability, construction-related accidents and injuries from defective products.
Early on in his career Michael gained invaluable trial experience representing the City of Philadelphia and served as an Assistant City Solicitor while defending accident cases filed against the City, as well as defending the Department of Human Services in matters involving prosecution of child abuse claims. Michael also served as an intern at the Delaware County District Attorney’s office while attending law school.
