Bruce Hagen and his legal team at Hagen Rosskopf/Bike Law GA are celebrating 30 years of running a successful personal injury law firm devoted exclusively to serving victims of auto accidents, truck wrecks and bike crashes in Decatur and metro Atlanta.
Hagen, who has been practicing law for 36 years, founded his own practice in 1992 and is known amongst his peers and clients as “The Peeps Lawyer.” Starting with a small team including Helene “Grandma” Hagen, Bruce built his firm with integrity, respect for his clients and their cases, and a genuine concern for the wellbeing of his clients as well as his employees.
Longevity and loyalty are two of the biggest traits of this law firm; several team members have been working with Bruce Hagen from 5-plus to 20-plus years and most of the firm’s client base are returning clients or referrals from former clients. Today, the firm is comprised of four trial lawyers, 10 support team members, and rotating interns.
In 2016, Bruce’s son, Matt Hagen, joined him in his law practice as an attorney and has become an excellent advocate for injured victims both in and out of the courtroom. Bruce Hagen has been selected to the Georgia Super Lawyers list for 17 consecutive years and Matt has been recognized as a Georgia Rising Star. To date, the attorneys at Hagen Rosskopf have represented thousands of clients in personal injury claims, won hundreds of trials in Magistrate and state courts all over Georgia, and have a history of verdicts and settlements that have changed their clients’ lives for the better.
Partnering with Ken Rosskopf, “the dean” of bicycling in Atlanta, and through Bruce’s affiliation with Bike Law USA, Hagen Rosskopf LLC/ Bike Law GA became the leading personal injury law firm for bicyclists all over the state. Bruce spends a substantial part of his time hosting educational programs for bike riders, students, and law enforcement officers to help ensure that people are aware of both their rights and responsibilities, as well as to help promote safety in all regards.
Bruce is also involved in working with both state legislators and municipal leadership in crafting laws intended to help protect bicyclists and pedestrians.
Growing a 30-year-old personal injury law firm in one of the largest metro areas in the country is no small achievement and does not occur without hard work. Every highway in Georgia is covered in billboards from attorneys promising fast cash and every broadcasting platform is saturated with legal advertising. Decades-long efforts to reform tort law in Georgia have threatened the rights of injured victims of having their day in court; along with the insurance companies’ constant attempts to pay as little as possible on personal injury claims can make personal injury a tough legal field to succeed in.
However, Bruce attributes the longstanding success of his law firm to his personal commitment to each person who walks through the front door of the office.
“Building a relationship of trust with my clients and treating every case and settlement regardless of the size as a priority has kept clients coming back to us every time they need a lawyer. Even if I can’t help them, I can connect them to divorce lawyers, or criminal lawyers, etc., that I know will treat them right,” shared Hagen.
In 2003, Hagen Rosskopf moved into Decatur’s historic Marble House at 119 N. McDonough St. Stop by for a visit of The Marble House, get a free consultation about your case, or drop by for a new water bottle for your bicycle. Open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, this team is passionate about personal injury law and dedicated to excellence in service and professional quality legal care. When the office is closed, the team members of Hagen Rosskopf spend time with their families, ride bikes, coach sports, travel, and enjoy life.
