David Rosen – Talented Oregon Personal Injury Attorney



The case that changed everything for David Rosen occurred in 2001 on the side of a road just outside of Boulder, Colorado. The driver of a minivan simply wasn’t paying attention, took a left turn, and plowed her vehicle straight into a cyclist. The impact shot the man across the road and onto the adjacent sidewalk. On top of serious bruises, ,and infection, the bicyclist suffered a fractured kneecap and tears to his ACL, knee tendon, and meniscus, requiring four surgeries in total.

Since that day, David has had a profound appreciation for Plaintiff’s attorneys, who stand up for individuals against large insurance companies. David’s personal experience shaped a desire to help those whose lives are turned upside down by the actions of others. He strongly believes that individuals and corporations must be held accountable for careless and negligent acts that injure or kill innocent people.

It is this belief that brought David to Dwyer Williams Potter LLP, where he now litigates cases involving car accidents, slip and falls, products liability, and, of course, bike versus auto. His work with the firm is bolstered by years of experience in Washington D.C., where David was involved in politics, economic research, and various aspects of the law. While in DC, David earned a full merit scholarship to the University of Maryland Law School during which time he served as a law fellow in U.S. Senator Ron Wyden’s office and he worked as a law clerk in the Department of Justice.

Moving back to Bend in 2010 was a homecoming for David and his wife, who lived here in the late 1990s and fell in love with the area. David enjoys the wealth of outdoor opportunities available in Central Oregon and is always game to try a new sport. On the weekend, you can find him cycling, snowboarding, running, hiking, or fly fishing, but his passion will always be helping others. He works with Legal Aid to provide pro bono legal services to the public, and has worked with Saving Grace to evaluate the legal assistance needs for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

For David, it all goes back to that day on the side of the road. His real-life experience has given him insight into exactly what his clients are going through. As a result, he can not only guide them through the legal process, but also help them move on with their lives.
