Brian Collins is a trial lawyer and courtroom fighter with a wealth of trial experience in complex, high-profile cases. At VSCP LAW Brian focuses his practice on fighting for individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries and damages due to the misconduct of culpable Defendants, including cases involving preventable deaths, brain injuries, paralysis or sexual abuse.

Prior to joining VSCP LAW, Brian has handled some of the most noteworthy prosecutions in Philadelphia over the last five years involving police misconduct, abuses of civil rights, official misconduct, and municipal corruption. Brian has successfully prosecuted a former homicide detective in Philadelphia for a series of sexual assaults, secured the first voluntary manslaughter conviction for a killing by an on-duty police officer in the history of the City of Philadelphia, as well as many other important and complex matters. His wealth of experience in the courtroom and in preparing some of the most difficult cases brought by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office in recent memory enables him to be a relentless advocate for his clients at VSCP LAW who are victims of medical negligence, sexual abuse, or civil wrongdoings.

Brian’s attention to detail, his tireless effort on behalf of his client or cause, and his exceptional ability to persuade judges and juries in high-stakes trials has earned him the utmost respect of the legal community in Philadelphia and throughout the state. He has a strong passion fighting for individual clients against long odds that was first forged at the Public Defender’s Office in Philadelphia where he handled many serious cases to jury verdict. His experience in both the government, as a former District Attorney in Philadelphia, and in the private sector representing clients, gives him a unique and ideal perspective when fighting for victims in the civil arena at VSCP LAW. He understands both how to build a compelling case, but also how to break one down and attack the other side. This skill allows him to help his clients at VSCP LAW to build the strongest cases possible to get the compensation they deserve.

Brian earned his undergraduate dual degree at Villanova University, majoring in Economics and Finance, and graduating with summa cum laude honors. While at Villanova, Brian nurtured his early interest in trial work by founding and leading the Villanova Mock Trial Team to national prominence in its second year of existence. After graduating from Villanova, Brian, a lifelong resident of the Philadelphia area, remained in the city to attend the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He graduated from Penn with cum laude honors and continued to hone his interest in trial work by earning a place on the law school’s Trial Team.

Following law school, Brian joined Dechert LLP, one of the largest law firms in the world, working on complex products liability matters, but soon recognized that he had a passion to fight for individual clients. In particular, he developed this passion after an experience representing an individual in a prison civil rights case where prison doctors failed to properly diagnose and treat his client’s injury and prison officials callously ignored his client’s suffering. This realization led Brian to join the storied Defender Association of Philadelphia, the public defender’s office, where he received invaluable trial skills, training, and experience in countless bench and jury trials.

Brian returned to private practice after several years in public service, but remained in the courtroom while successfully defending clients accused of crimes before juries and judges. He also fought for just compensation for victims of police violence and misconduct.

Brian continued with this focus on bringing justice to marginalized individuals against persons in positions of power when he joined the District Attorney’s Office in the Special Investigations Unit. As part of the DAO, Brian had the opportunity to lead investigations into a wide variety of official misconduct involving large and complex matters, bring cases to juries to find justice for victims of that misconduct, and help bring a voice to those people who might otherwise be ignored. Brian continues that fight for justice at VSCP LAW.

Brian is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania, the federal courts in the Eastern, Middle, and Western Districts of Pennsylvania, and the federal Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Outside of work, Brian lives in Philadelphia with his wife, their son, and dog. He has volunteered as a member of the board of directors for the historic preservation of a tall ship in Philadelphia, for the Bar Association of Philadelphia’s Judicial Commission, which assists with rating potential judicial candidates, and with his church. He also enjoys being active outdoors, playing guitar in his band, and the restaurant scene in Philadelphia.

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.

Dan is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Middle Districts of Pennsylvania

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 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.

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. As a mother herself, Julia finds it deeply meaningful to advocate for mothers and children who have tragically experienced inexcusable delays in labor and delivery resulting in devastating birth injuries requiring lifelong care.

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 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 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 securing a $9.6 million dollar recovery for wrongfully incarcerated exoneree, Willie Stokes, and a $2.45 million dollar recovery for wrongfully incarcerated exoneree, Donald Outlaw, alongside founding partner, Josh Van Naarden.

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. Julia has also been nominated by her peers and recognized as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyers “Rising Star” several years in a row.

Julia grew up in the Midwest and is a 2015 graduate of the University of Kansas School of Law, where she received the CALI award for top performance in two courses: Criminal Practice in Kansas, and Torts II. In her first year of law school, she received the Payne & Jones Award for Oral Advocacy. She also devoted time during law school to mentor area high school students in a Youth Court program dedicated to developing public speaking and critical thinking skills while reducing juvenile offender recidivism.

Julia is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and Kansas, and before the federal courts of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the District of Kansas. She is a member of the Philadelphia Bar Association, the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association, the Philadelphia Association for Justice, and the American Association for Justice.

In addition to her law practice, Julia actively engages in her community. She has volunteered for several years with various equine-therapy programs serving children and adults with disabilities, including Pegasus Therapeutic Riding Academy in Philadelphia. She is also an active member of Impact 100, a local women’s philanthropy group focused on investing in the Philadelphia community.
