Pam and David Rochlin, Personal Injury Lawyers at Rochlin Law Firm, LTD., are devoted to helping people who have been injured in accidents. They represent the person who was injured – not the insurance company and their clients are their highest priority. Pam and David share more below!
Every business has a story, tell us yours.
We had both been lawyers for about 10 years, married but working separately. The opportunity came up suddenly, just a few weeks before the start of 1999, and we jumped on it.
We started in very small offices with no employees and just a few clients (and two small children at home, a mortgage, ….) It was a bit scary, but also an exciting challenge.
Fortunately, we had a bunch of lucky breaks along the way: Pam’s great investigator from Meshbesher left his job there at about the same time and helped us for over ten years to make sure we could prove the cause of many serious accidents. A family friend was starting an “executive suites” business in a building near our home that we could move into immediately, and then transition out of when we were ready for our own larger space. We found our first great secretary who was just a couple years out of high school, who stayed with us for 10 years and became a lifetime friend. We have worked with many great employees over the years, sympathetic doctors that helped prove the extent of our clients’ injuries, and many friends, former clients and other supporters who have brought us so many great clients that we have enjoyed working with, getting to know, and even becoming friends with.
We are frequently asked, “how is it working with your spouse?” We always explain that we don’t exactly work side by side, and we don’t even always see each other during the day. But the short answer is that it has been great for us. We are very happy we made this decision and appreciative of the help and luck we have had along the way. We definitely hope to be doing this for many years to come.
We learn from our mistakes, especially in business. Give us some words of wisdom.
Follow the Golden Rule, be nice, be considerate, be generous.
If you could have only one super power, what would it be and why?
Pam would like to be able to instantly transport herself to different places because she hates wasting time.
