About Rothrock Law Firm


I am Ken Rothrock, a lawyer who has been helping people in the Hillsborough, Durham, Burlington and Roxboro areas and across North Carolina deal with crises caused by accidents and injuries since 1981. I also offer dedicated, results-focused representation for charged with driving while impaired, all traffic citations and those coping with the burdens of a criminal record they earned when they were young.

For more than 35 years, I have helped many, many people through extremely tough situations. If you have been injured or tragically lost a family member in a motor vehicle collision or on-the-job accident, you can turn to Rothrock Law Firm, P.A., with confidence that I will personally prioritize your case.

If You Think You Might Need A Lawyer, You Do Need A Lawyer

People turn to me when they want a seasoned, hard-driving veteran of many high-value negotiations and trials in the General Courts of Justice in North Carolina. I will put my firm’s resources to work finding, preserving and effectively presenting the evidence necessary to maximize your compensation. This includes calling upon top-quality experts in accident reconstruction and other fields when helpful to my clients’ cases. As a longstanding member of Advocates for Justice, I can also readily obtain guidance from other accomplished trial lawyers who are also my colleagues in North Carolina.

In addition to having earned exceptional outcomes in personal injury cases, I have helped people across the state of North Carolina get their rightful workers’ compensation benefits. Additionally I have helped citizens charged with traffic violations throughout North Carolina.

Put Decades of Experience and My Firm’s Technological Strength On Your Side

I offer a free attorney consultation and I have a “no fee if no recovery” policy in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. To learn your rights and discuss legal options regarding an injury-causing accident or traffic stop call (800) 851-1920. I look forward to helping  you.

I recognized long ago that building and maintaining a technologically advanced law practice would be necessary to help my clients. Anyone who has observed my use of my custom designed trial harness used in major trials will attest to it’s effectiveness.

My firm’s research and record-keeping practices are state of the art.

Supported by my dedicated legal assistant, Kim Wright, since 1984, I have always made responsiveness and accessibility to clients our mission.
