Ms. Prosper will serve as an attorney with the firm’s Insurance Recovery Practice Group. She is one of five attorneys joining Offit Kurman in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey this week.
Prior to joining Offit Kurman, Rebecca Prosper worked at the City of Philadelphia’s Law Department in the Civil Rights Unit defending police and correctional officers in 42 U.S.C 1983 suits and related state law actions, primarily involving claims asserting excessive force, assault and battery, and false arrest and/or false imprisonment. During her time with the City, Ms. Prosper gained significant litigation experience trying 12 cases to verdict in both state and federal courts, conducting and defending hundreds of depositions, as well as arguing dozens of oral arguments for motions to quash, motions to dismiss, motions in limine, and motions for summary judgment.
