About Us

About Frank D. Rorie Jr.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Frank Rorie attended Loyola High School and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Southern California in 1999 with his Bachelor’s Degree in History. He received his Juris Doctorate from USC Law School in 2002, where he was an editor and member of the Southern California Interdisciplinary Law Journal.

After law school, Rorie joined Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP  as a litigation associate in its Los Angeles office. In his career at Orrick, he directly managed multi-million dollar cases in state and federal courts, tried cases to successful verdicts, and was published favorably on appeal. He left Orrick to start his own firm in 2013, delivering big-firm results for dozens of clients at a fraction of the cost.

Practice Philosophy

I offer clients deep legal expertise combined with a strong emotional IQ. My practice philosophy is simple: I only accept a matter if there is a legitimate path to a beneficial outcome for my client.
I view litigation as a means to an end, not an end in itself. If I can successfully resolve your matter through pre-litigation mediation or arbitration, I will deliver optimal results. Conversely, I will be your tireless advocate in the courtroom while remaining sensitive to your needs and budget.
I don’t believe quality legal representation is reserved for the wealthy or big corporations. I genuinely enjoy what I do and being of service to others.

Pro-bono and Community Responsibility

I was raised to believe that you get what you give in this world, and I have lived my life by this motto.

In 2005, I helped found the Associates Board for the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles—a volunteer organization dedicated to providing pro bono representation, fundraising, and legal service to low-income families. I served as Executive Chair of this organization from 2006 to 2008.

I was appointed as a volunteer commissioner for the City of West Hollywood, serving on its Public Facilities Commission in 2013. I chaired and vice-chaired the Commission in 2015-2016. The Commission reviews the proposed development of all public facilities, including parks, City-owned buildings, the library, landscaping, and streetscapes. I maintain close relationships with the City's staff and leadership to this day.

I currently serve as a member of the Los Angeles Law Library and volunteer with the lawyers in the library program every month, helping people in need with legal advice and assistance.

Why I Started My Own Practice

The Law Office of Frank D. Rorie Jr. is counsel you can trust. My clients know I will always fight for what’s fair.
– Frank D. Rorie, Jr.

Every client has a unique story that demands respect, sensitivity, and attention to detail. Working as a sole proprietor gives me the freedom to work with clients on a personal level and offer them a superior level of service. I enjoy getting to know each of my clients and using my skills to unburden their lives. To that end, I stress clear and direct client communication at all times. This means being truthful and honest (i.e., “frank”) at all times.
