  • Very good lawyer to have on your side.

    “Dedicated Lawyer. We were in need of a lawyer really fast and after doing a lot of research, we had a meeting with Mr. Rosenfeld and decided to hire him on the spot. He was very helpful in letting us know what we were up against when it came to my son's case. He told us what to expect and what he will do for us. The prosecutor was being very difficult in the fact that she rejected everything Mr Rosenfeld tried to negotiate for us. He worked really hard for us and in the end he got us a better deal than we expected. He was always available 24/7. Very good lawyer to have on your side.”
