Client Reviews
“Mrs Rosales was very professional and was able to answer all my concerns - and there were too many. Camille, her assistant was always able to address my questions and get answers for them. It was an overall great experience dealing with Mrs Rosales practice.” Clayibinet G.
"I had a problem with some people trying to scam me for some money. She handled the matter quickly and professionally. I never needed to try to find her as she always followed up with me about every step. She was very knowledgeable about every aspect of my case. When I finally got my settlement she got me more then I ever hoped for, she was truly amazing I wish every lawyer did their job as good as her. Highly highly recommend you will not be disappointed." Jean
"Jessenia is AMAZING she went over and beyond for my case. She did way more for me that I even paid for. She found a loop hole that ended up getting me my license back and I am so appreciative of her and her service. Anything legal that I have to deal with I am using her and recommending her to all my family friends and clients." Julian R.
