I originally was referred to Rosanne Detorres from the areas regional prosecutor. Rosanne was my divorce attorney and my immediate reaction when consulting with her, was that she was professional, but also gave me the feeling that I was talking to my sister about my problems, not an attorney. When representing me in court, she was quick, assertive, confident... she just nailed it. I got everything I asked for and things I didn't even know to ask for. Her staff is great too. When I have reached out to her through her website, I've received personal emails back from her, along with detailed thoughts and advice; which I feel is outstanding and goes above and beyond expectations of dealing with an attorney. Her practice does stand out among other attorneys in the Flemington area. Highly recommended!!!

I live in NC and my children live in NJ. The NC Child Support office sent notification in Dec 09 that the child support order was closed due to the children being of age, living on their own, and working fulltime. It wasn't until my taxes were taken for offset child support that I found out NJ never closed the case. Now a year and a half later, the NJ Child Support office is giving me the run around. Rosanne Detorres gave me my options, got my paperwork filed, and got my case backdated and closed in the matter of a couple weeks. What a burden she has taken off me. And Mindy was a gem. Great to work with. Thanks for everything.

Rosanne is an excellent attorney in all respects and I will always be thankful and grateful for her professional representation. I was lucky enough to have Rosanne pick up my case after my prior attorney fell ill, and she did not hesitate even though my estranged husband was a difficult, recalcitrant pro se defendant. She is an amazing litigator, and although she will make every effort to effect a reasonable settlement if possible, she is not afraid to litigate if that is in the best interest of her client. She is a fighter where a fight is the only option. Most important, she has a wonderful calming way about her that is so important in family law cases.

In my case I had been divorced 7 years. The children's needs had changed and child support and other areas of my original divorce agreement had to be addressed and reviewed. Rosanne helped me through the process of reviewing child support and kept things in perspective as to what was realistic.
I would highly recommend Rosanne Detorres for ALL your family law problems to addressed. Roanne is efficient and organized, as is all of her paperwork is orderly, complete and correct . She and all her staff are through, friendly and compassionate to you and your case.
Rosanne's knowledge of family law is exemplary. She is honest, competent and experienced. She will tell you the facts regarding your case according to the law and what you need to know pertaining to your rights. If the situation arises, she can also be an aggressive advocate for you in court if need be. Rosanne is the attorney you want on your side!

I wish I had found Rosanne DeTorres sooner. Her work ethic, vast knowledge and level of honest service make her stand apart from the rest. If you have been looking for the best of the best of lawyers to represent you in either a new matter or to take over in a long, difficult case, save yourself time and look no further. Roseanne and her staff successfully completed my complicated matter, and I am very grateful to them!

Roseanne DeTorres is a lawyer that is tough when she needs to be, and very easy to talk to. I have always had a hard time opening up to strangers, but when I talked to her- it was like talking to family. She explained all the legalities for me, showed me what reasonable requests were in my case, and never let me down. I would reccomend her to anyone seeking a lawyer because compared to other lawyers that seemed like sharks to me, she does what she does because she cares about the people! There should be more lawyers like her in this world!

As you are aware my ex wife and I decided to separate in December 2009 and asked you to provide mediation to help me through a divorce. During our first meeting you outlined the mediation process and gathered all the relevant information needed to start moving forward. During the course of our six plus meetings you clearly stated the laws around alimony, child care and support and division of assets that would be necessary to formally end the marriage. It was then up to my ex wife and I to determine which direction we wanted to go and what we were willing to accept and give up. Your mediation skills came to light when you forced my ex and I to have dialog in your office, one on one, while you remained the neutral party. Although those meetings were somewhat tense, through your help, we always made progress and left the office with "take aways" that we needed to consider prior to our next meeting with you. Ultimately, through your assistance, I was able to complete my divorce, separation to court judgment, in just four months. I feel the divorce settlement I received was a fair one that divided my assets but gave me joint parenting custody of my son Dale. Instead of spending thousands of dollars and months (or years) of litigation with my ex wife, I was able to put this divorce behind me and move forward with my life, all thanks to you. I would highly recommend you to anyone going through a painful process divorce. You can feel free to have any of your prospective clients contact me directly regarding my experience with your firm.

As the former Executive Director of SAFE in Hunterdon I whole heartedly recommend Rosanne DeTorres. I have personally watched Roseanne passionately argue to obtain the best legal protection(s) and achieve successful legal victories for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. These were victims of violence who were facing difficult and dangerous situations in their lives.
I use Rosanne DeTorres for my personal legal matters, since leaving SAFE in Hunterdon. I am always impressed by her attention to detail and ability to be clear in communicating legal expectations. I believe she is a person who is most respectful, compassionate and resourceful in each matter I bring to her attention.

Rosanne represented me in my divorce a few years ago and I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. She and her assistant made a very emotional and difficult situation much easier than it could've been. Rosanne is extremely professional and relies on her experience to provide sound advice and guidance, while also being kind and understanding, which is just as valuable. Rosanne's assistant was also always responsive, professional and helpful. Subsequent to my divorce, I utilized Rosanne's services to rewrite my Will, Power of Attorney and Health Directive and on my recommendation, my Mother and boyfriend did the same. They were both very happy with the recommendation!

I was referred to and retained Rosanne Detorres' legal services in 2003 after experiencing domestic violence and a particularly difficult divorce. Anyone who has had the misfortune of experiencing the breakdown of a marriage understands the high level of emotion involved and the near impossibility of thinking clearly. Rosanne, and her paralegal Susan, undertook my case with a perfect mixture of professionalism, compassion, and respect. While Rosanne made it clear I was in charge of my case, she provided me with sound advice and clear and concise representation while in court. She also clearly understood the concept of financial restraint, and made every effort to limit invoice charges. I highly recommend Ms. Detorres and her staff, and, while I sincerely hope I won't be in the position of requiring legal services in the future, I would not hesitate to retain their office should the need arise.

Rosanne Detorres has handled and advised us in several matters for the past 10 years. We have always found her to be easy to work with, and she always takes the time to explain exactly what needs to be done and why. We have never left her office feeling confused or overwhelmed. She is more than fair with her time, and we have always been satisfied with her work.

Rosanne's confidence and candor was exactly what I needed. She is straightforward and honest. Your best interests will be her goal.
She always kept me informed, gave me all sides, honestly, so that I could make informed decisions when they needed to be made. Everyone in her office has been both friendly and knowledgeable. When it came time for the paperwork, she took the time to answer
any questions I had and listened respectfully when I had input. And beyond the formalities of lawyer/client, I know her concern for my safety was a priority. Rosanne is the kind of attorney you want in your corner!

I went to Ms. Detorres completely worried i would lose my son. She did a great job preparing me for what was going to happen. My x wanted full custody and on the first court date we were able to settle with what i asked for. I have my son one day less than my x every two weeks giving me plenty of time to play with him a stay a big part of his life. Mrs. Detorres was fair with me when it came to charging me as well as patient with me throughout everything. I recommend her to anyone who needs a lawyer.

I have worked with Rosanne DeTorres for the last 5 years. She assisted me in getting through a very difficult time in my life. I trust her and trust in her knowlege and expertise. She took the worry and difficult times and made it easier to get through knowing she was there supporting me. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a strong, supportive, hard working attorney.

I was refered to her by Safe in Hunterdon and she totally mishandled my case. She made me feel very comfortable until my retainer check cleared and proceeded to take me for everything I had. I would certainly not reccomend using her.
Posted by a Divorce client, Flag
I found her disreputable, unresponsive and dishonest. She was clearly incompetent and only interested in her retainer, which she kept even after fouling up my case so badly I had to find another attorney to fix her mistakes.
