  • Exceptional defense attorney!

    “I found Greg Rosenfeld to be an experienced, aggressive compassionate defense attorney. I hired Mr. Rosenfeld to defend my daughter in a criminal case. I have hired other attorneys in the past and have found that most attorneys are attentive and engaged up until the moment they are paid. We had the opposite experience with Mr. Rosenfeld who stayed in constant communication, worked harder than any lawyer I've met and got results that far exceeded our expectations. He kept fighting when most would have given up. I think very highly of him both as a person and as Criminal Law Defense Attorney. Great job and I will gladly recommend you to anyone who needs an excellent Criminal Lawyer.”

  • 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.”

  • Greg completely delivered on his word.

    “I┬árarely or ever write reviews but Greg Rosenfeld is certainly deserving of a lot of praise. My case was a smaller one compared to most however Greg made me feel like I was his top priority. Being that it was my first experience with the law, I was initially very nervous about the outcome and process in general. Greg took my worries away and reassured me every step of the way. Within a matter of weeks, Greg completely delivered on his word and my case was dropped. I've never felt so much relief. Greg became a great anchor during a time of chaos and I am forever grateful.”

  • Intense. Communicative. Professional.

    “Retained Mr. Rosenfeld (Greg) on quick notice after 'interviewing' several other attorneys. The work he performed made it clear the choice was right. Greg was constantly in communication and available 24x7 (refreshing change) and very responsive (don't take for granted - many lawyers are aloof and reapond to what they feel they need to vs. all client concerns). He handled the case from a techincal level with precision and this resulted in a favorable outcome. Greg was very transparent about fees - nothing to hide or surprise and he didn't try to scare excess fees out of our pockets in contrast to others. Finally, Greg's perspective as a former Public Defender really makes him a passionate advocate for the accused. Talking with attorneys who were former prosecutors made me feel like they lapse back into their former role's perspective and may not always have your back 100%. Greg was really outstanding in every respect and I fully expect to see him flourish with an outstanding reputation in private practice by continuing to exceed clients' expectations.”
