For more than 13 years, Andrew Rochen has been engaged in an extensive state and federal civil litigation and trial practice in south Florida.  Mr. Rochen attended the University of Michigan for his undergraduate education, and thereafter attended the University of Miami, where he earned his Juris Doctor, with honors.  Upon graduating from law school, Mr. Rochen accepted a job as an associate attorney at a botique litigation firm located in Boca Raton.  Thereafter, Mr. Rochen accepted a position with a large state-wide firm, where he remained for more than 10 years, working his way up from associate attorney to one of the firm's few shareholders.  In addition to chairing the litigation division of his prior law firm, Mr. Rochen focused his personal practice on litigating various types of claims arising out of tort liability, transportation liability, corporate liability, professional liability, government liability and property damage.  He also routinely litigated high-exposure matters involving catastrophic loss, including claims involving wrongful death, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.  Mr. Rochen has litigated several hundred claims throughout his career, from pre-suit through trial, and has trial experience at both the state and federal levels.   

In 2016, Mr. Rochen decided to leave his full-time litigation practice in order to pursue additional interests in alternative dispute resolution, and now serves as a Supreme Court certified circuit, county, family and appellate court mediator.  He has served as a consultant for both plaintiffs and defendants, and has had the benefit of direct interaction with dozens of insurance companies during the course of his career, thus providing him a unique understanding as to how the insurance industry and respective insurance carriers view the litigation and settlement processes.  He is intimately familiar with the emotional, psychological, and financial costs associated with prolonged litigation, and his overall experience affords him a unique perspective, in that, he understands the advantages of resolving a legal dispute in the conference room rather than the courtroom, but also appreciates that it is sometimes necessary to proceed to trial. 

In addition to working as a mediator, Mr. Rochen remains actively involved in the Florida legal community and spends much of his time offering lectures to respective corporate and insurance clients regarding the myriad of issues that arise out of Florida litigation.

I worked alongside Andy for years and have always been impressed with his work ethic, professionalism, and litigation skills. Andy has the ability to perceive and evaluate how both simple and complex legal issues will play out on both sides - which makes him an excellent mediator. I hands down recommend Andy as both a litigator and mediator!

Andrew Rochen - Top Attorney in South Florida
I hired Andrew Rochen to defend me in a lawsuit that was filed against me by the legal representative of a man who suffered a brain injury while being escorted out of a bar/restaurant at which I was a patron. The man was drunk and belligerent, so the manager asked him to leave. He became confrontational as he was being escorted out of the bar/restaurant, so the staff had to forcefully remove him. When he was thrown out, he hit his head on the sidewalk, causing him to suffer a permanent brain injury. I was caught up in the mix, so I was named as one of the many defendants. Through use of several experts (including a toxicologist, a bio-mechanical expert, and a neurologist), Mr. Rochen was able to establish solid defenses and chop away at the claims against me. He ultimately effectuated an extremely favorable settlement, extricating me from the case. His service and responsiveness is beyond reproach, and his rates are more than fair. I highly recommend him!
