Roura & Melamed

“Legal service with a personal touch” has been the guiding principle at Roura & Melamed from the firm’s inception in 1980. Representing people who have suffered catastrophic injuries, the personal injury trial firm prides itself on the personal service it provides for its clients.

“We never lose sight of the fact that what a layman may call ‘a great case’ is, in reality, a human tragedy,” says partner Walter P. Roura.

This “caring for the client” approach was the result of the experience partners Walter P. Roura and Martin Melamed had when working at much larger firms, where it was next to impossible to give every case and each client the personal attention that people with serious injuries need and deserve. Not having that ability in a larger firm directly led to the formation of Roura & Melamed as a full service, caring and personally attentive law firm.

Roura & Melamed represents clients who have suffered all types of serious, catastrophic injuries–including numerous cases of traumatic brain injury–which require attorneys to have very specific medical knowledge and legal skill in order to successfully present the case in court. The firm’s reputation in this respect has led many lawyers to refer cases to Roura & Melamed.

In providing personal service, Roura & Melamed stresses the need to earn its clients’ trust and always keeps its clients informed of the progress of their cases. Roura & Melamed has secured more than $250 million in verdicts and settlements. “We know that we cannot cure our clients’ injuries and that no amount of money that we get for them can be substituted for their prior good health,” says Melamed. “However, what we can offer our clients is our promise to do our best for them.”
