Georgia Bike Law attorney Ken Rosskopf is a bike rider and lawyer. For more than two decades he has represented
Atlanta-area bicyclists injured due to the negligence of others, due to road defects, or due to defective bicycles. Ken is sometimes called the “Dean” of Atlanta bike accidents because of his knowledge and experience with those cases.
Education & Cycling Credentials
Education: Ken earned a B.A. in Economics and J.D. in law at the University of Southern California. Before beginning my practice in Georgia in 1986, he practiced in California and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Ken the bicycle law authority: Ken literally wrote the book on bicycling law in Atlanta and Georgia. He says, “I wrote “Representing Injured Bicyclists” for the Georgia Trial Lawyer and contributed to The Georgia Law Enforcement Pocket Guide and” Georgia Bike Sense. I’m a frequent lecturer about laws and safety to bicycle groups. I even co-founded a national association of bicycle lawyers.
Ken the rider: “As a daily bike rider, I’m all too familiar with the dangers that cyclists face on the roads,” he says. “When I’m not in the courtroom, I’m an international level masters road bike racer, National Champion and State Champion.”
Ken the advocate: Ken states, “As a community activist, I founded Decatur Yellow Bikes, Inc., a community bicycle program that recycled over 750 bicycles for free community use. In Southern California, I worked to establish Bikeways along the coast.”
Ken’s Bike Law practice: “I have successfully represented hundreds of injured bicyclists — including clients like Bicycle Ride Across Georgia and the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. In investigations, settlements, meditations and trials, my reputation and expertise have been established on client service and obtaining positive outcomes.
“My association with trial attorney Bruce A. Hagen, one of Atlanta’s Super Lawyers, ensures that clients will have the representation they need from the time of the initial call through settlement or trial and judgment.”
