Jacksonville, Fla. (PRWEB) February 10, 2013
Morgan and Morgan is pleased to announce that Dr. Rocco Marrese has joined the firm. Dr. Marrese brings a wealth of medical and legal experience and is being warmly welcomed to the firm’s medical malpractice and personal injury department.
“Joining Morgan & Morgan is a great opportunity to continue to work as I have in both my medical and legal careers to work ‘For the People’ ,” said Dr. Marrese. “I know I can help the lawyers at the firm, and at the same time, grow professionally.”
Dr. Marrese is both a plaintiff’s trial lawyer and a board certified orthopedic spine surgeon. He attended medical school at Loyola University in Chicago, where he graduated magna cum laude. In 1987, while still performing surgery and seeing patients, he began law school at St. Louis University. He obtained his law degree in 1992 and has been practicing law since then, successfully trying medical malpractice cases in Illinois, Indiana and Missouri. Over his 20 years of practice as a trial attorney, Dr. Marrese has developed a significant reputation among the defense bar and defense-oriented experts as a result of his cross examinations in depositions and trials of defense medical experts.
“I have extensive experience in medicine,” said Dr. Marrese. “I know what happens when a doctor examines a patient and obtains a medical history. I know what happens in operating rooms and what is written down in medical records. My goal is to help the attorneys at Morgan & Morgan uncover the medical truth behind both medical and legal matters and, thereby, being even more For The People .”
Dr. Marrese still sees patients at his orthopedic medical practice in Indiana and is licensed to practice both law and medicine in Florida, Illinois, Indiana and Missouri. Dr. Marrese will be working from Morgan and Morgan’s Jacksonville location, but will be assisting all of the firm’s Florida offices.
