How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I love the intellectual complexity of a challenging tort law claim. I love making a complex medical proof in a hearing or trial blending the law with medicine. I enjoy the rigors of a complex legal proceeding with a favorable result for my client.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Clients should make it their mission to be as informed as possible in any applicable area of law that they come in contact with.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

In the area of personal injury, we don't come in contact with that often with a document that the client prepared. It would be fact-specific to the legal matter at issue.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

We do that in the area of automobile property damage claims.

Peter Rotatori, III

Civil personal injury and workers' compensation litigation attorney at The Rotatori Law Firm from 1988 to the present.

Working with clients in the personal injury field on an individual one on one basis to try to understand how an injury affects a client's life having done so for over 20 years makes me a very empathetic person who is not afraid to take on a client's legal cause. Personally, my lovely wife was born without a right hand and I have learned through her that determined people can overcome physical obstacles in their life and make a difference with a caring attitude towards people and professionalism in their chosen field. I try to motivate my clients to always be positive in spite of a physical injury setback and let me take care of the complexities of their case.

I am extremely detailed whether it be in investigating facts, researching relevant case topic, analyzing the law, drafting a legal document, preparing a witness, writing a brief, or preparing to present a case for arbitration or trial. I am also very personable and can interact with a client one on one, building a sense of confidence for the client while the legal matter is pending. I am also very competitive and don't like losing, which I use to help motivate me to prepare my case.

Personal interests:

I love to travel in both the U.S. and overseas. I enjoy spending time on the weekends with my family, including my two dogs, one who is an English Bulldog. I am an avid golfer. I also enjoy yard work around my home.
