Ken A. Rosskopf
Education & Cycling Credentials
Education: Ken earned a B.A. in Economics and J.D. in Law at the University of Southern California. Before beginning his 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 co-founded a national association of bicycle lawyers and bicycle accident reconstruction engineers.”
Ken the rider: “As a daily bike and motorcycle 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, mediations, and trials, my reputation and expertise have been established on client service and obtaining positive outcomes.
Ken also is a motorcycle enthusiast. He says motorcyclists face many of the same hazards from negligent drivers as bicyclists. He welcomes the opportunity to serve them and their families seeking compensation for injuries or death due to the negligence of others.
“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.”
A little-known fact about Ken: Ken’s son, Joey Rosskopf, lives and races in Europe as a member of the CCC Racing Team, a Pro tour level team!
