Jennifer M. Rosado
NY Personal Injury Lawyer
I was born in New York City and raised in the Town of Newburgh, New York where I graduated from Newburgh Free Academy (NFA) with honors. I credit my time at NFA for truly igniting my passion for law as I was fortunate enough to be part of the high school’s criminal justice program and was nominated to participate in the National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C. with students from around the country. I then attended SUNY Geneseo where I earned my B.S. in Business Administration. While at SUNY Geneseo I had the privilege of serving as a student representative on the College Judicial Committee along with school administrators to evaluate academic dishonesty, theft, plagiarism and other internal campus violations. Upon graduating SUNY Geneseo I accepted a position at a general practice law firm while I studied for the LSAT and applied to law schools. I then attended Thomas M. Cooley Law School (a.k.a. Western Michigan University) where I was a semi-finalist in the Intra School Mock Trial competition and ultimately earned my J.D.

I was brought up by a generous, compassionate, hardworking middle class family. My parents always did their best to provide for me and my brother, never resting on their laurels and always putting family first. They instilled in me the core moral and ethical values which helped me shape my work ethic.
The one thing I love most about my job is that I am able to help people with the skills I have been fortunate to acquire. Each day comes with a new experience and a unique challenge that I am always willing to accept.
I love the challenge. I enjoy meeting new people, evaluating their unique (often complicated) legal situations, fighting for them and finding an amicable solution to their problems.
I evaluate each new client by immersing myself in their case, contacting them, updating them on the status of their case, and making each client feel comfortable. It’s important to let the clients know I’m here for them and they’re not forgotten.
I faced many obstacles on my journey to becoming a lawyer but I feel that being the first in my family to break the glass ceiling of becoming a lawyer has helped me become more determined, more persistent and more grateful. I learned that nothing worth having ever comes easy, but with hard work and determination anything is possible. This knowledge has been the guiding force behind my success in law school, my career and life.
