Rob Rausch Speaks to Pre-Law Students at Siena College

On February 8th, Rob Rausch participated in a panel discussion at Siena College, to share information with pre-law students about law school and the practice of law.  The panelists provided information on how students can transition from college to law school, recommendations for a successful law school experience, and inside looks at different practice areas.  Rob also met separately with students who had expressed an interest in the field of personal injury litigation, and discussed changes in that practice area, perspectives on successful handling of claims, and what the future may hold for the field.

Rob has been with the firm since 1997 and represents clients in a wide range of personal injury issues, including medical malpractice claims, motor vehicle accidents, slip and trip accidents, and construction site injuries, among others.
