  • Best Lawyer Hands Down

    “After 3 probation violations I was facing a minimum of 20 months in prison. At my first appearance, I witness Greg get one of his clients out of jail and trust me, his record and charges were outrageous. Naturally, I asked him for Greg's contact. I'm writing this review because Greg I was released from custody and was able to modify my probation to terms that makes sense! Not to mention, he somehow got me a withheld adjudication. In over 5 years on probation I've never had a lawyer fight for me so hard. Greg goes to war for his clients.”

  • Attorney Rosenfeld was a godsend for us.

    “Attorney Rosenfeld was a godsend for us. Our daughter had been in Florida for several years trying to overcome an opioid addiction. In 2015 she made a huge mistake due to financial hardship and attempted to shoplift. She was caught and was facing 2 felony charges. With a year sober and a steady job a public defender tried to get her a reduced sentence. She made at least a half-dozen court appearances and had since moved out of state but the prosecutor refused to budge. Our daughter had since obtained her commercial real estate license and had become engaged to be married. A felony conviction would have ended her career before it started. On the recommendation of a public defender we contacted and retained Attorney Rosenfeld with a court date and an irate prosecutor only days away. His compassion, and intimate knowledge of the Palm Beach court system and it’s judges and prosecutors enabled him to strike a deal that gave our daughter the chance of having the charges dropped after 6 months while submitting to 50 hours of community service and random drug testing. And he did so at a very reasonable cost. If you or a loved one need legal representation in the Palm Beach area, Attorney Rosenfeld is the one to call.”
