Overview And Experience
On May 26, 2022 Chief Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer appointed Mr. Rojas as Co-Lead Counsel in MDL 3026, Preterm Infant Nutrition Products Liability Litigation. This appointment followed a twenty-five-year career as a trial lawyer.
Mr. Rojas graduated from law school in 1997. Following law school, he was recruited and commissioned as a First Lieutenant by the United States Army, Judge Advocate General’s Corps, and was swiftly promoted to Captain seven months later.
Later, Mr. Rojas was appointed Special Assistant United States Attorney and was entrusted with the awesome responsibility of representing the United States as a federal prosecutor. He prosecuted and tried cases such as rape, child molestation, homicide and larceny. Mr. Rojas quickly earned the respect of his superiors, who described him in the Official Evaluation Report as “the best, most aggressive prosecutor in this very busy legal office.” Before leaving public service, Mr. Rojas was awarded a certificate of appreciation by the Director of the FBI for his “outstanding prosecutive skills” and was made an honorary Agent with the Army Criminal Investigation Division.
Beginning in 2000, Mr. Rojas spent five years representing large corporate and governmental clients at one of Connecticut’s largest and most prominent firms. His work at this law firm focused on complex civil litigation, with an important focus on product liability.
In 2005, Mr. Rojas switched sides, and never looked back. Fed up representing big industry and big government, and driven by a desire to represent real people, Mr. Rojas founded his own firm. Mr. Rojas handled cases involving personal injury, medical malpractice and defective products, frequently taking cases to verdict.
In 2020, Mr. Rojas and his partners formed Levin, Rojas, Camassar & Reck, LLC. The firm was formed after founding what is now known as MDL 3026, Preterm Infant Nutrition Products Liability Litigation. But before the litigation achieved national prominence, Mr. Rojas and his partners litigated the cases alone for well over a year. The early success Mr. Rojas and his partners achieved in the litigation was the foundation for what would later become one of the most significant mass torts in the country.
Mr. Rojas has been featured or quoted in numerous news outlets, including the evening news (NBC30), the Connecticut Law Tribune, the Hartford Courant, and AAJ’s Trial Magazine.
Mr. Rojas has also been asked to speak at important national conferences, including the American Association for Justice Convention, Mass Torts Made Perfect (MTMP), National Trial Lawyers Summit and various seminars and conferences for the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association.
Mr. Rojas is rated “AV Preeminent” by Martindale Hubbell, “superb” by Avvo (9.9 out of 10 rating), National Trial Lawyers Top 100 and has been repeatedly recognized as a “Super Lawyer” by SuperLawyer.com.
