Dan Rosner is a passionate attorney with a detail-oriented approach that leaves no stone unturned when advocating for his clients. At VSCP LAW, Dan specializes in catastrophic-injury cases representing only victims – specifically individuals and family members who are coping with their greatest tragedies – against large insurance companies and institutions.
The true genesis of Dan’s passion for his clients comes from his personal experience with tragedy. Having lost his mother due to the delayed diagnosis of cancer at a very young age, Dan’s empathy for his clients provides him with a unique perspective of what his clients are going through and allows him to provide personalized representation that few can genuinely offer.
Before matriculating to law school, Dan worked as a law clerk assisting founding partner Ryan Chase recover several seven- and eight-figure settlements on behalf of catastrophically injured clients. His time working on those cases confirmed his desire to pursue a legal career and motivated him towards his current work at VSCP LAW representing those who need it most.
Dan graduated 7th in his class, earning magna cum laude honors from the Drexel Kline School of Law. During law school, he was an Associate Editor of the Drexel Law Review. As a member of that publication, Dan authored a Note entitled In Guns We Entrust, 11 Drexel L. Review 421 (2018). In his article, Dan scrutinized PLCAA, a federal statute that immunizes the gun industry from civil tort liability, and argued for a broader scope of liability that should be imposed against gun manufacturers and dealers. In recognition of his scholarship, Mr. Rosner received the Emalee G. Welsh Award given annually to the Best Student-Written Publication.
While in law school, Dan also used his legal education to give back to the local community by advocating for domestic violence survivors seeking Protection from Abuse Orders, representing indigent Philadelphians obtain or retain custody of their children in Philadelphia family court, and teaching Philadelphia high school students about their constitutional rights. A Pennsylvania native his entire life, Dan was born and raised right outside of Philadelphia, first in Lafayette Hill and then in Lower Merion. He attended the University of Pittsburgh for his undergraduate degree and graduated with cum laude honors.
Before joining the firm, Dan gained valuable experience as a defense attorney in a wide array of personal injury matters and complex contractual disputes in state and federal court. Dan’s experience defending individuals, small businesses, and Fortune 500 companies in cases involving construction accidents, dangerous building and property conditions, defective products, wrongful death, and other casualties enables him to develop theories and strategies that preempt the opposition’s defense strategy. Dan is also well-versed in the interpretation of insurance policies, and was involved in fraud investigations and bad-faith litigation, all of which provides him with the ability to investigate any matter and protect his clients’ interests in recovering full compensation.
Dan is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. He is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Philadelphia Bar Association. In his free time, you can find Dan in South Philadelphia playing basketball, boxing at the gym, cheering on his beloved Eagles, Sixers, Phillies, and Flyers, or frequenting his favorite restaurants in the city.

Julia Ronnebaum is a strategic and creative trial attorney, who commands the attention of jurors and judges with poise and precision. Her genuine care for each client and relentless fight on their behalf has led to significant seven and eight-figure results to compensate the needs of her clients and to hold wrongdoers accountable.
As an associate with VSCP LAW, Julia fiercely advocates for her clients, demanding accountability for those injured by the negligence and wrongdoing of others. Her practice focuses on representing children and adults that have experienced unthinkable trauma from sexual abuse, those that have suffered catastrophic injury or death as a result of medical negligence or defective products, and individuals who have experienced irreparable violations of their constitutional rights. Julia is a driving force in some of the most significant cases of child sexual assault in the Philadelphia area, and fights to be a voice for survivors of abuse by representing former child residents of area juvenile residential centers, detention centers, schools, and other placement programs.
Notably, Julia, alongside the partners at VSCP LAW, has worked to secure significant recoveries for victims of medical malpractice, including an eight-figure settlement for a young client who was rendered totally paralyzed due to the negligence of her doctors. She and founding partner Ryan Chase also helped secure a confidential settlement on the fifth day of a jury trial in a medical malpractice case involving a client who suffered a permanently disabling injury due to a doctor’s negligence during a routine surgery. Additionally, her background as a criminal prosecutor has positioned her to take on some of the most noteworthy and egregious cases of civil rights violations in the Commonwealth, particularly in Philadelphia County, including representation of exonerees who have innocently served decades in prison after being wrongfully convicted.
Julia began her legal career as a criminal prosecutor where she tried multiple jury trials as lead prosecutor on behalf of the State. A captivating presence in the courtroom, Julia had been described by a criminal trial judge as “one of the best trial attorneys” in the District Attorney’s office during her time there. As a prosecutor, Julia fought to convict those who committed crimes of sexual and physical violence and other felony offenses. It is this background in criminal and courtroom experience that has quickly earned Julia recognition as an emerging force in the field of trial attorneys handling catastrophic injury cases throughout Pennsylvania.
In the Spring of 2022, Julia was named one of Pennsylvania’s “Lawyers on the Fast Track,” for her impact on the legal community and her dedication to the profession. Julia is one of only 28 attorneys selected for this award in the entire Commonwealth after nomination by colleagues and review by a panel of judges from all areas of the legal profession.
