Overview

Ronald defends clients in toxic tort lawsuits and commercial litigation.

Ronald discovered a fascination with the law in college when he began reading legal textbooks from front to back. He loves legal theory and applying the logic of the law to various cases, and he’s passionate about the opportunities for research and logical argument development that litigation presents.

Ronald began his career at a public entity defense firm where he represented local government, honing his litigation abilities in cases filed against various Los Angeles government entities. He defended civil rights and personal injury claims in both state and federal court and became extensively familiar with the discovery and trial preparation processes. However, he knew his preference as an MBA graduate was to represent businesses, and Ronald eventually joined Husch Blackwell out of his desire to work closely with corporate clients.

Today, Ronald represents clients across various industries, including the automotive, safety, construction and pharmaceutical sectors, in asbestos claims and other business litigation cases. He frequently works with expert witnesses and firm’s network of subject-matter experts to develop defenses consistent with medical science.

Thanks to his business education, Ronald is known for his understanding of client business goals, needs and motivations. He readily grasps the client perspective and works to tailor his litigation strategies to fit clients’ unique business situations.
