About Me

Rob Kornfeld,
senior partner, of Kornfeld, Trudell, Bowen and Lingenbrink, PLLC has
been practicing personal injury law over the last thirty (30)
years. Mr. Kornfeld’s law firm represents clients who have cases
involving major personal injury such as medical malpractice,
construction site injuries, wrongful death, motor vehicle collisions,
maritime accidents, nursing home or elder abuse, and other serious
injury claims.


As an attorney who has personally experienced the pain, anxiety, and
distress of a personal injury
(see Rob’s story), I assure you that I
understand the challenges you and your family may now face. For more
than 30 years I have been helping people just like you navigate the
legal system
to recover the compensation you deserve and to recover
reimbursement of medical bills, lost wages and other compensation.
