Scalpels to Scales: Our Legal Assistant’s Leap from Medicine to Law

Discover how Rossen Law Firm became pivotal in her career transformation.

Legal Assistant at South Florida Criminal Defense Rossen Law Firm

Meet Mallory Lever, a young woman whose journey from medicine to law is as inspiring as it is intriguing. Originally from Hickory, North Carolina, Mallory’s career path took an unexpected turn when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Her story is a testimony to the power of resilience and adaptability in uncertainty.

Mallory attended Appalachian State University, where she studied speech therapy. Her initial career path seemed set in the field of medicine. However, the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic led her to work at UNC Medical briefly. Despite the valuable experience, Mallory couldn’t shake the feeling that she was meant for something different.

During a year of soul-searching, Mallory discovered her interest in Pilates and realized her natural proficiency in reading and writing. This self-realization sparked an interest in law, leading her to prepare for the LSAT (Law School Admission Test.)

Eventually, her journey led her to South Florida, where she found a position at the Rossen Law Firm. This move provided her with a job and ignited a passion for the legal field. At RLF, she gained valuable insights into law firm operations, client interactions, and dealings with the state attorney’s office. Communicating with clients is Mallory’s favorite aspect of her job. She derives immense satisfaction from improving their quality of life and finds fulfillment in filing motions that positively impact their lives.

One such rewarding case involved a DUI charge. Mallory assisted the client with a hardship application, enabling them to regain driving privileges. She also guided them on expungement. The client was incredibly grateful and formed a meaningful connection during their interaction.

Mallory’s journey from medicine to law has been transformative. Her story highlights the Rossen Law Firm’s pivotal role in her career, emphasizes the importance of pursuing one’s passions, and exemplifies our core value: Take Action!

In one of the most stressful times in my life, Rossen Law Firm was there for me. Leaving no stone unturned they provided patience and knowledge in every detail of my case. I’m very thankful and proud of this law firm family and especially of my lawyer, Scott Simmons for guiding, defending and helping me in every way possible. He and this law firm family come highly recommended from personal experience!!!

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!!!

Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

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.
