Robert Spohrer has referred to him as a “secret weapon.”
Roger Dodd, who partners with Spohrer at Spohrer & Dodd, said in his 32 years of practicing law he’s only given three testimonials — and one of them has been to the aforementioned weapon whom the firm uses consistently, but resides more than 1,000 miles away.
The man the trial lawyers speak so highly of is Chuck Derenne, a plaintiff-only structured settlements broker who resides in Milwaukee.
n 2006, he spearheaded the formation of the Registry of Settlement Planners Board and while president he helped found a professional certification program. The program was formed in conjunction with the Center of Financial Responsibility and Texas Tech University and compares to graduate level work, which must be completed within a year and include a comprehensive settlement plan.
