Rosemarie Arnold

At Law Offices Rosemarie Arnold, we are a strong voice for victims of negligence.

People come to us for help in all types of personal injury cases. We are in the business of helping people and do not decline cases because they won’t produce a big fee. Our law firm receives significant attention in professional publications and major media outlets due to our success in high-profile cases.

Attorney Rosemarie Arnold heads a team of personal injury lawyers who provide sensitive and caring legal assistance to serious injury victims, whether they have been injured in motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, in a slip-and-fall, by a dog bite, or in the workplace.

Rosemarie Arnold was born on June 9, 1962 to Iris Arnold, a school teacher, and Dr. Murray Arnold, an obstetrician gynecologist. Her dad passed away when she was 5 years old, leaving her mother to raise their 6 children in Washington Heights, New York. She graduated with honors from the Bronx High School of Science in 1979, where she was the captain of the women’s swim team. In 1983, at age 20, Arnold graduated from The State University of New York at Binghamton, then headed to Brooklyn Law School where she was a member of the Moot Court Honor Society and captain of the negotiating team.

After graduating from law school in 1986, Arnold began her career at the Law Offices of Christian Stueben, where she represented predominantly large corporate defendants, such as Foodtown, Pathmark, Stop & Shop, Campbell’s Soup Company, Arcola Bus Company, Bally’s Total Fitness, T.G.I. Fridays, Libby’s Foods and Cigna Insurance Company.

In 1989, feeling unfulfilled with defense litigation, Arnold founded The Law Offices Rosemarie Arnold, (a firm devoted to the representation of injured victims), in a one room office in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey which she shared with her paralegal Mary Mazza. Twenty five years later, Arnold has built her law firm into one of the largest and most successful plaintiffs firms in Bergen County where Mary Mazza serves as the CFO.

Between 1989 and the present, Arnold has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and judgments for her grateful clients and succeeded in scores of high profile cases.

Arnold has been called upon to give her legal expertise to the NY Times, Daily News, New York Post and Wall Street Journal. She has also appeared as a legal expert on Good Morning America, the Today Show, The Early Show, Maury Povich, NY1, ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX News, Inside Edition, and Extra TV. Notably in 2013, Arnold was named EXTRA TV’s legal correspondent.

Arnold has been a staple on the New Jersey Super Lawyers list every year since it’s inception in 2005. In 2011, Arnold opened a personal injury boutique in New York City. Less than 2 years later, she was named to the New York Super Lawyers list as well. Arnold is one of a handful of lawyers named to both the New Jersey and New York Super Lawyers lists.

Arnold is admitted to the bars of New Jersey, New York and Nevada. She is also admitted to the United States District Court of New Jersey, the United States Eastern District Court of New York and the United States Southern District of New York.

In 1995 Arnold was certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Certified Civil Trial Attorney, at the time, she was the youngest attorney ever certified in NJ. She has been re-certified to present day.

Arnold is a member of the Multimillion Dollar Advocates Club, Morris Pashman Inn of Court, Bergen County Bar Association, New Jersey Bar Association, New York Bar Association, Nevada Bar Association and the American Association for Justice.

His practice is entirely devoted to personal injury, including medical malpractice and wrongful death cases, with an emphasis on litigation. Michael is a Certified Specialist in Injury and Wrongful Death Litigation by the State Bar of Arizona.

Since becoming a member of the Arizona State Bar in 2004, he has tried more than 100 jury trials, including homicide prosecutions, wrongful death, medical malpractice, and traumatic death injury cases. Since joining the firm, the jury verdicts Michael and Louis Hollingsworth have obtained together have exceeded $8,500,000. He is a frequent lecturer and guest speaker throughout the state of Arizona on a variety of topics related to trial techniques, strategies and methods. His courtroom successes enabled him to become Certified in Injury and Wrongful Death Litigation by the State Bar at only 35 years of age.

Michael is committed to using his litigation experience to work for injured plaintiffs. “Representing people who are injured as a result of another’s negligence is similar to the work I did as a prosecutor,” says Michael. “Even though I represented the People as a deputy county attorney, my goal was to achieve justice for victims who were affected by a bad event. My work gives me the chance to represent injured plaintiffs, to achieve justice for them, for the injuries they innocently have to bear, and for the pain and suffering they have to live with, often for the rest of their lives.”

A native of Tucson, Michael began studying theatre arts at the University of Arizona before switching to the Business College. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Finance in 2001. He was awarded a Juris Doctor, also from the University of Arizona, in 2004.

Throughout the years, our opponents have learned that if they are not prepared to meet our settlement demands, our attorneys are thoroughly prepared to try the case in front of a jury. As a result, our clients’ settlements are much higher than they would be if we had not established the reputation of a firm that takes cases to trial. Ultimately, obtaining a favorable settlement for our clients is our duty, and obtaining a full settlement is what we pride ourselves on.
