Hi, I’m Krista Richman, and for over 12 years, I’ve dedicated my career to criminal defense, championing the rights of those accused of crimes. Since beginning my journey in the legal field in 2011, I’ve devoted myself entirely to this challenging yet rewarding area, where courage, grit, and determination are part of my daily life.

My passion for the law shines brightest in the courtroom, where I relish arguing motions and engaging in trials. But I firmly believe that the groundwork for any successful defense lies in the meticulous preparation that happens far from the public eye. Through thorough investigation and open, honest communication with my clients, I lay the foundation for our success together.

Throughout my career, I’ve navigated the complexities of the legal system, taking on 30 jury trials that range from misdemeanors to life-punishable felonies, including Robbery with a Deadly Weapon, Attempted Murder, and First-Degree Murder, to name a few. My expertise also spans specialized cases, such as 10-20-life gun cases, drug trafficking, and homicides, showcasing my commitment to defending diverse clients.

My academic background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Florida Gulf Coast University and a Law degree from Nova Southeastern University. While at Nova, I was actively involved in the Nova Trial Association and was honored with the highest grade award in the Criminal Justice Clinic, affirming my dedication to this profession.

I pride myself on my exceptional communication and oral advocacy skills, which have been crucial in my pretrial motion practices and overall success in the legal field. My ability to navigate the law effectively was recognized in 2015 when I received a BACDL hat trick for securing three consecutive NOT GUILTY verdicts, a milestone in my career that I’m particularly proud of.

Outside the courtroom, my life is all about family. I’m a wife and mother to two wonderful young daughters, and our family wouldn’t be complete without our two rescued dogs—an Australian shepherd mix and a cavapoo. We’re huge sports fans, especially of the Miami Dolphins and the Florida Panthers, and we share many joyous moments cheering for our favorite teams.

My career as a criminal defense attorney is not just a job; it’s a calling. It’s about fighting for justice, advocating passionately for my clients, and making a difference in their lives. But it’s also about balance, cherishing the moments with my family, and enjoying life’s simple pleasures. This is who I am, both in and out of the courtroom.

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.
