Get To Know Los Angeles Injury Attorney Ronni Whitehead

My career in personal injury litigation now spans nearly two decades going back to my graduation from the IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law with my J.D. in 2002. However, after passing the Illinois Bar, I decided I wanted to establish myself further out west. I moved myself to California and passed the State Bar and worked as an associate attorney for a host of prominent firms along the way.

In 2010, I made the decision to open my own practice, the Law Office of Ronni Whitehead. I operated as the firm’s Principal Trial Attorney before making the decision to join Cellino & Barnes in 2015. Along the way, I earned many honors for my accomplishments as a legal professional—such as earning a Top 40 Attorney Advocates Under 40 distinction from the National Bar Association. After 10 years of service on the board I earned the distinction of Emeritus Board Member of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles and I am a member of the Million Dollars Advocates Forum.  I have also served as a board member and officer for the Black Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles.

This year, I returned to serve as a senior trial attorney for The Barnes Firm in Los Angeles. Having been named to Southern California Super Lawyers in each of the previous four years, I look forward to continuing to help personal injury victims in the Los Angeles area receive compensation and justice for their suffering.

My husband is a die hard Los Angeles Lakers fan and I love attending games with him.

Success is not a destination it is a journey.

I love music and there are too many songs to choose from. My favorite LA venue is the Hollywood Bowl I enjoy the experience of an outdoor concert.

I love to travel and I want to visit each continent and as many countries as possible.

I want to visit Accra, Ghana to experience the culture and the history.  I have a trip planned in October.

My husband has the best sense of humor and he can always make me laugh.
