  • 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.”

Within less than two weeks of being hired to take on my case, Greg did everything he promised to do and got my case dropped saving me a lot of hassles and headaches.

  • Highly recommend Greg!

    “I don’t believe that words can put into perspective just how much Greg has helped me this last year. Not only did he assist me with other legal matters (driver license reinstatement, traffic tickets etc) that were unrelated to the serious felonies I was facing, he was happy to do so, and did it with compassion and loving kindness. I was facing two second degree felonies and a couple of third degree felonies, and at times would stress to the point of anxiety attacks. highly recommend Greg!”

  • Greg has an exceptional work ethic and great dedication to his clients.

  • 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.”
