Rosalind J. Matos has 14 years of legal experience representing clients in state and federal courts at both trial and appellate levels. She is fully bilingual with a strong background in complex civil rights litigation and foreclosure defense work, who has handled various cases from inception through completion with positive results.
Her career in public interest law began as the South Florida Staff Counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida in Miami where she spent almost eight years working in a wide range of civil liberties areas including police misconduct, racial profiling, privacy rights, freedom of speech, student rights, freedom of religion/separation of church and state, among others.
After leaving the ACLU, Attorney Matos decided to continue to do public interest work and went to work with Legal Aid Service of Broward County in the Consumer Unit doing foreclosure defense work. She provided legal assistance to low income families facing foreclosure who did not have the resources to hire an attorney but wanted to save their homes.
