#187 Ron Rosenbaum and Joe Friedberg
Ron’s back, and this time he brought a friend.
Brash, opinionated and consistently outspoken, the irascible Ron Rosenbaum is an authentic Twin Cities character. Rosenbaum is (in no particular order) a lover of gambling, cigars, and — most of all — calling it as he sees it. His political beliefs may best be described as iconoclastic. In other words, he’s not drinking anybody’s Kool-aid. He brings to Twin Cities News Talk years of experience working in talk radio and television. Years ago when he was — as he puts it — “young and stupid,” he was recruited to help tame racially torn South Boston High School. He’s also been a Boston Globe correspondent and a practicing attorney, a Minnesota Law & Politics “Super Lawyer” for years. If you’re looking around town for him, your best bet is on the golf course, in the bar at The Lex or at Canterbury Park.
Joe has extensive experience in litigating criminal, white-collar criminal, and complex civil cases in state and federal courts across the United States including the United States Supreme Court. His clients include physicians, bankers, lawyers, chief executive officers, athletes, and police officers. The Minnesota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers honored him with their Distinguished Service Award. He is President of the American Board of Criminal Lawyers and is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. He is a fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers. The National Board of Trial Advocacy has certified him as a criminal trial specialist. He is a frequent lecturer at law schools and continuing legal education seminars and is a television and radio commentator.
