His practice focuses on the defense of consumer litigation under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, and other state and federal consumer protection laws.

Rooney founded The Rooney Firm and has represented clients in litigation and defended clients against government enforcement actions and investigations for over 10 years at two prominent, Washington-based consumer financial services practices.
