Why you need a Cooper City, Florida Criminal & DUI Defense Attorney

Cooper City, in southwestern Broward County,  works only with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office and does not have their own local police department.


As a result, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office (BSO) has a larger number of resources dedicated to “fighting crime,” including: 

  • K9 unit, 
  • DUI Unit, 
  • Bomb Squad, and more.

In order to successfully argue your side in a criminal case, you need a defense attorney willing to conduct their own investigation of what the police did, what other witnesses may have said or seen, and who will find out how prosecutors are willing to work with you on your case. 


General lawyers won’t work as diligently to discover all of these sides, so it’s important that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney. 


Our attorneys at Rossen Law Firm have plenty of prior experience working with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office and the State Attorney’s Office for the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit. They’ve spent years fighting for their clients while building rapport with judges, police officers, and prosecutors along the way. 


Having a reputable and experienced criminal defense attorney can help you and your case immensely, so please don’t hesitate to call us at 754-206-6200 or 754-999-2499 to schedule a free strategy session today

    I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

    I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

    My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
