  • I wish there were more attorneys like Greg!

    “I wish there were more attorneys like Greg. It seems like most attorneys just want a quick check these days. Greg is not only the best, he is also a fighter and he simply get things done. After being presented by several lawyers, Greg was the one that got the job done. Thanks to Greg i was able to avoid Prison time, avoid probation and walked away without a felony conviction. That's unheard of, i'm not saying other lawyers aren't good, what i am saying is that Greg is the BEST. I'm the proof of it. I've seen Greg in action turning every rock to get things going in your favor. I was lucky to have met him by mistake. I was referred to Greg in shackles by another attorney who could've presented me cause my lawyer was so aweful. lol”

  • 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.”

  • I was incredibly impressed with his preparation, his poise, and his professionalism.

    “Greg represented my brother in court on a probation violation charge. I was incredibly impressed with his preparation, his poise, and his professionalism. He was a tireless advocate for my brother and truly cared about his case. I've never seen an attorney work as hard or as diligently for his client. He was successful in securing a dismissal of all charges, which in our federal court system, is an amazing feat in and of itself. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone - he is an excellent attorney and a good, kind and decent human being.”

He actually cares about his client's welfare and works many long and hard hours researching your case. He is second to none as far as I'm concerned. He won my case for me against a very corrupt opponent. He communicates when he says he's going to and can be reached without delay. I would hire him again without hesitation.”

  • I would recommend him to anyone!

    “Greg Rosenfeld was truly a beacon of hope during a time that I had absolutely none. I found myself in a position that I never in 1 million years imagined I would be, and not only did he sort it all out, he also treated me with absolute respect and dignity. From the first day I met him to the last day he did EVERYTHING he could to resolve my case. I was always kept informed, given hope, and treated like I mattered. He was always willing to get on the phone when I had a question or a concern. Greg Rosenfeld was able to get the best possible outcome for my case. I didn’t think it was even something I could hope for, but he made it a reality. I chose him because of the reviews that I read online and I’m so glad I did. I would recommend him to anyone needing help for ANY reason. His professionalism, motivation, commitment, knowledge, and kindness will never be forgotten.”
