Testimonials for Rossen Law Firm

After an argument with a relative in my house, somebody without any authorization took the irresponsible decision to call the police and the situation ended up on the police manipulating everything and getting me arrested for DV. Lesson learned. I will never again trust in the police. I went to the internet and look at the lawyers with the best reviews and I read "Bad things happen to good people". I choose to call Mr. Rossen and it was the best decision I could make. I felt unprotected after I saw how the police can be abusive with any person, violate their rights and there is nothing you can do about it. Mr. Rossen helped me to feel again protected. He was very professional. Like it was stated by other customers: He walked me through the whole process of how, when and where. There were no hidden fees, extra fees, or anything like that. He told me straight out, this is how much it is going to cost and this is what I can do for you. My case was dismissed and we are in the process of expungement. Me and my family cannot express our gratitude to Mr. Rossen for all his help. His card will remain always on my wallet and I will not hesitate to recommend him to anybody who needs a good lawyer to protect him and represent him. He is the best!
