Michael J. Rosenberg is a Denver personal injury attorney specializing in the areas of insurance recovery, insurance bad faith, catastrophic personal injury, and wrongful death. Mr. Rosenberg is a 1996 graduate of the University of Denver College of Law, where he served as the articles editor of the Denver Law Journal, was selected to the American Bar Association Trial Team, and graduated in the top 5 percent of his class. After graduation, Mr. Rosenberg served as law clerk to the Honorable Steven C. Briggs of the Colorado Court of Appeals. Mr. Rosenberg spent the next four years representing insurance companies and their insureds, as well as fidelity and surety companies, in a wide variety of claims, including professional liability, products liability, catastrophic injury, insurance coverage and bad faith.
