The College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers has been established to honor those attorneys across the country who have distinguished themselves in their practice in the field of workers’ compensation. Members have been nominated for the outstanding traits they have developed in their practice for 20 years of longer representing plaintiffs and/or defendants, serving as judges or acting for the benefit of all in education, overseeing agencies and developing legislation. These individuals have convinced their peers, the bar, bench and the public that they possess the highest professional qualifications and ethical standards.

“It is an honor to be inducted as a Fellow in the College and be recognized for my work on behalf of injured workers,” Mr. Rosasco said. “As an attorney practicing for more than two decades in this field, it is satisfying to know that I have contributed to making sure that not only my clients obtain all the benefits they deserve, but that I have also helped make the workers ‘compensation system in New York better for all citizens of the state.”
