 Having represented injured clients for over 40 years I have gained substantial experience in all of the Circuit Courts in West Michigan and have acheived outstanding success by way of jury verdicts and settlements.  I have represented insurance companies in the past and have knowledge of their tatics and mind set.  This experience helps me provide outstanding services to the clients helping them achieve the maximum recovery for their injuries.  Few attorneys have this range of experience and expertise.

 The clients needs are always first and I'd rather listen to the client and appreciate their challenges due to their injuries than talk the law.  If one does not have a good relationship with their client and understand their needs a lawyer cannot adequately represent them.

Competent attorney who cares about his clients
Tom, assisted my son with an injury claim after the insurance company refused to cooperate. My son was hit by a semi-truck as he was riding on a tractor. Tom took the time to thoroughly investigate our case, devise a game plan, and negotiated a sizable settlement for us.

Excellent
I consulted and hired Mr Rosenhagen to assist with my social security disability claim. He has been extremely helpful every step of the way in coordinating all the paperwork and throughly explaining what to expect as we worked through the process. Also, acting on my behalf he contacted and coordinated benefits with the long term disability insurance company.

Tom was instrumental in the successful handling of a personal legal situation. I found him to be very responsive and extremely knowledgeable; both admirable qualities when considering legal representation. He communicated clearly and professionally as he worked to resolve the issue at hand. I was very pleased with the results-oriented approach.

Home Owners Association
As president of an HOA (Home Owners Association) Board of Directors, I have had several issues arise which required legal advice and I called upon Tom for counsel. One involved interpretation of a section of our by-laws that had been written and organized poorly resulting in a disagreement as to what was appropriate action by the Board. Tom provided a well-defined legal interpretation that eliminated the misunderstanding and dispelled the dispute. The second issue arose when the Board decided to hire a PM (Property Management) company. The PM that was chosen was unable to start immediately and I asked Tom what would be an appropriate action to take with them. He recommended a Letter of Intent and drafted one for use by our HOA. The third service requested of Tom was to review the contract proposed by the PM and offer possible changes/revisions before the Board signs the agreement. He made several suggestions that would improve the HOA position and provide improved legal protection. In all instances we felt that Tom provided our association clear, concise and thorough guidance in a timely manner.

Tom was very helpful in advising me the best solution going forward on social security disability. He was supportive and respectful throughout the entire transaction.

Mr. Rosenhagen represented me in my social security case. He always answered my calls and met with me several times before my hearing. He received a statement from my doctor which I think really helped. At the hearing, it was apparent that the judge respected him as well. I won my case which I know was challenging. I would highly recommend him to anyone trying to get social security benefits.

Tom Rosenhagen -- A Class Act in Every Respect
I am a retired attorney. Former clients and members of the public often ask me who i would recommend to handle their Social Security disability, personal injury and/or workers compensation claims. I unhesitantly refer them to Tom Rosenhagen. Tom is a highly knowledgeable, experienced, and trustworthy attorney who relates extremely well to clients and courts alike. I can honestly say that Tom stands out in the legal community. I have personally seen Tom successfully pursue large and creative claims that fellow attorneys thought unwinnable. He handled just such a case for me. He is a skilled and tenacious advocate.
