Why you need a Weston Criminal Attorney:

Because the city of Weston works solely with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office (BSO) to provide services to its residents, any arrest and criminal charge is handled by BSO. A general practicing attorney may not have the knowledge and first-hand experience with the Sheriff’s Office to get you the kind of results you need.

That is exactly why you need to hire an experienced, knowledgeable criminal defense attorney that knows the criminal justice process well and how to use the process to the best of your advantage. That’s what the Rossen Law Firm does. We have knowledge and experience – gained only from working these types of cases often and regularly – that we use to get the best-case scenario for our clients.

To see what our attorneys Adam and Manny & our entire award-winning team can do for you and your criminal charges today, call us at 754-206-6200 or 754-999-2900 to schedule your free strategy session.

    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.
