  1. Workers compensation
    I have worked in the field of Workers' Compensation defense for nearly 39 years. I have an outstanding reputation as a knowledgeable, detail-oriented trial attorney, and have the respect of both my fellow attorneys and all of the Judges before whom I practice. I also spent two years as an Adjunct Member of the Workers' Compensation Appeal Board, reviewing trial court decisions and preparing written appellate opinions.

    45 years, 9,900 cases

  2. Transportation

In March of 2016 I was inducted into the College of Workers' Compensation Lawyers in a ceremony in New Orleans, Louisiana.   I was told that I am the only in house legal counsel for an automotive company to receive this honor.

In January of 2017, I was promoted to Managing Counsel and Program Manager, Workers' Compensation, Ford Motor Company.   As Managing Counsel, I supervise a team of in house lawyers in Michigan and Ohio, as well as outside counsel across the entire country. 

In 2019, I was nominated by my peers as a Top Lawyer in the Corporate Counsel category in DBusiness magazine.   I was chosen as a finalist in the Automaker category and was recently awarded the honor of being named DBusiness magazine's winner in the Automaker group of in house corporate counsel.

Workers Compensation Expert
While employed at Ford Motor Company in their Workers Compensation Department, I had the pleasure of partnering with Al to resolve their litigated Workers Comp claims. Aside from providing a thorough case analysis; Al could be counted on to provide prompt status updates and offer his opinion about the best resolution based on the facts of the case. It is my pleasure to endorse Al, and I welcome an opportunity to work with him again in the future.

Highly credible
The phrase "highly credible" comes to mind when I think of Al Gorosh. I feel completely comfortable looking to Mr. Gorosh for direction. He is extremely approachable and never makes one feel as though he doesn't have time for them. I value his opinion greatly and feel fortunate to have his expertise available.
Posted by anonymous | October 14, 2010
Mr. Goroah is a very pleasant person to work with, I have only worked with him on one case. Where he settled the claim, we still pay for medical but not the weekly benefits which is what was asked of him. I have gone to him for advise on many cases to see if I could do something different or if i was doing it correct, he has never turned me away being to busy or not wanting to help. he answers all question in a timely manner and in a way that one can understand.
