More than 17,000 attorneys provided nearly 600,000 law firm assessments, and nearly 7,500 clients provided close to 40,000 evaluations. The 2015 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and client ballots to date, making the recognition more competitive and valued.

Top litigation attorney launches mediation practice

Paul Roshka, a commercial and securities litigator and founding member of Roshka DeWulf & Patten in Phoenix, has opened a mediation practice focusing on securities and general business matters.

During a career spanning four decades, Roshka has earned a reputation as a top attorney in Arizona. In addition to his work as a litigator, he has represented parties in nearly 200 mediations including disciplinary matters before the Arizona Corporation Commission and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in Arizona, Utah, Florida and California. Cases have alleged securities fraud, unsuitable investment recommendations, supervisory deficiencies, churning, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duties.

“I am truly passionate about resolving disputes through mediation, and often recommend mediation above litigation,” said Roshka. “It is my experience that mediation is an effective method of reconciling issues, no matter how difficult. Plus, it’s considerably faster and less expensive. Both parties have a say in the outcome, and both are spared the courtroom.”

Roshka earned his undergraduate degree from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, and his Juris Doctorate from the University of Connecticut School of Law. He also has attended mediator training at the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University School of Law.

Roshka is consistently recognized for his legal expertise by Super Lawyers, Arizona’s Finest Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America®, and he has carried an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell for 20 years.
