Richard Rosario is a litigation associate and no stranger to pressure. Richard has represented Fortune 200 companies and handled cases where clients were staring down the barrel of a nine-figure settlement demand. He has also handled multiple publicized matters, such as assisting with a two-week trial challenging Tennessee’s lethal injection protocol while he interned at the Federal Public Defender’s office in Nashville during law school.
Richard has a broad range of experience in civil litigation matters. He has handled product and premises liability cases, environmental and toxic tort cases, commercial landlord-tenant disputes, NCAA collegiate investigations, and even successfully represented a client in front of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and got a unanimous decision overturning the lower court.
Richard always knew he wanted to be a trial attorney. While in college at Florida State University, he competed on the Mock Trial team and was a captain for one of the teams. While at Vanderbilt University Law School, he won the school’s 1L Mock Trial tournament, competed on the traveling Mock Trial team, and was President of the organization. This experience allowed Richard to start developing his oral advocacy skills before even graduating from law school.
While outside of the office, Richard can be found enjoying the beautiful nature that North Carolina offers, playing soccer, or mastering new recipes in his kitchen.
