Rossen Law Firm is proud to be a place where students can learn and engage with the legal profession as Interns - whether remote or in person.

We're thrilled by how many people are interested not only in criminal defense and the legal profession, but even more so excited by how many people we've had the honor of working with in our office as interns.

Ever since the coronavirus pandemic hit, we've had a number of interns working with us and joining in court remotely (thanks, Zoom!). We also allow for safe, occassional in-office internship days as well and hope to expand the in-person opportunities come Summer 2021 (pending on vaccination status and the completion of our office expansion).

If you're interested in criminal defense and/or a career in the legal field and are interested in interning at one of the best criminal and DUI defense law firms in all of South Florida, please send us an email and we'll let you know how to apply for an unpaid internship. You can find our emails on our bio section.
