A recognized expert in the field of investigation, Rohman is an Adjunct Professor of Law at Loyola Law School, where he teaches fact investigation. He has been selected as a faculty member for the past three years at the National Training Institute for Workplace Investigators, presented by the Association of Workplace Investigators (AWI). He was appointed by the L.A.

The City of Los Angeles retained Rohman to serve as the executive director of its Office of Discrimination Investigation, which conducted more than 300 employment discrimination investigations, and provided recommendations to the City Council on restructuring how the City handled these matters. These recommendations led to the establishment of a new City agency to oversee this work.
