Ronald A Karp

About Me

2014 will mark my fourth decade as a lawyer.  During that time I have been honored to represent lawyers, judges, public officials and most importantly all of those folks who are not famous and never find their way into the news.   Every client has had one thing in common: they were all victims of negligence from truck and car accidents, unsafe products and unsafe premises.  Some were victims of professional negligence and some needed to have their constitutional rights vindicated as when I was honored to represent Police Chief Charles Moose in helping him get his book published over the objection of the local government; or when I represented a group of women who were sexually harrassed by a Fortune 500 company.   The opportunity to change lives for the better continues to motivate me after all of these years.
