Professional and personable. Helped me out of a tough situation.
Max was recommended to me from a colleague who also hired him for bankruptcy protection. Midway through the proceedings we pivoted and he represented me in yet another capacity. Max is a skilled and shrewd negotiator and a pillar in the Stamford legal community. He was kind, patient, informative - all things you need from your lawyer especially in times of financial duress. We became familiar and got to know one another. He shares my sense of the absurd as well as other similar interests. Do not hesitate. His fees are reasonable and he will work hard for you. Thank you Max, for helping me through my difficult times with your wisdom, experience and guidance.

Great Experience!
There’s definitely a reason Max is one of the top Bankruptcy attorneys in Fairfield county. For such a dreadful ordeal, Max was able to make the entire process easy, painless, and stress free. On almost every occasion I spoke with him, it was quick, succinct, and enjoyable. His candid personality helped ease the process! I contacted Max at the end of September, paid fees by mid-October and I had my court appearance (via conference call) mid-November. I didn’t expect that it would happen so fast. He was always prepared, the office is very organized in terms of document storing, and efficient. Whenever I had a question or reached out to him he responded promptly each and every time. He was a good communicator – he was great about letting me know when was best to get a hold of him and each and every time he was available during those times, and if I had any concerns or questions he took the time to explain. It was apparent that he cared about my situation and I truly appreciated it. I would highly recommend Max.

The Only Lawyer to Call
Max was amazing in his professionalism, effectiveness and efficiency of my case. His line of communication was always open to me for any questions or thoughts I had concerning my case and he walked me through the good, the bad and the ugly of the case. I highly recommend Max to those seeking an attorney.

Worth every penny
Attorney Rosenberg settled my debt collection lawsuit for a much more reasonable fee than any of the other attorneys that I contacted. And I am 100% satisfied with the results.

One In A Million!
In short, I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Rosenberg today and what a difference a simple phone call makes. Even though I didn't hear what I wanted to hear he gave it to me straight. He is humble, down to earth, intelligent, funny, and fair. Plus he doesn't belittle you & your lay person questions you ask. He gives honest simplified explanations and truly shoots straight from the hip. IMO, he is why people pay a retainer for a lifetime family lawyer.

Incredible, knowledgable and professional
Max helped me with my bankruptcy case. He was incredible professional and treated me with so much respect throughout the entire process. If I had a question or concern he was always quick to get back to me. He prepared me well for every step and took away the mystery of the process. He is extremely reliable and respectful. I couldn't recommend him enough!

Outstanding Attorney
Attorneys Rosenberg is a top notch attorney. Detail oriented, responsive - actually answers the phone, knowledgeable, compassionate and a pleasure to work with! I cant thank him enough for all he did for me! Spent probably more time on my file than he did with most but it was most appreciated. Its hard to find lawyers that actually care about helping you. Most dont like he does. I highly recommend him for all your legal needs! You will not be disappointed.

Best Bankruptcy attorney in CT
Max was a great lawyer in my time of need. Bankruptcy is a horrible place to be financially and for me, was a horrible place to be emotionally. Max treated me with dignity and respect. He was amazing to work with through my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy petition and I recommend him and his firm to anyone wanting to have the best Bankruptcy lawyer in Connecticut representing them, thank you and your team Max I truly appreciate everything!

Awesome Lawyer
I called a few lawyers to file Bankruptcy and Attorney Max was the most helpful of the 3. He answered all my questions and walked me thoroughly through the process. From the time I called him until the day of the bankruptcy he was always available and never made me feel like I was a bother. If you are looking for a lawyer I highly recommend Attorney Max

Excellent counsel & response to legal issue
I am so grateful that I was able to enlist the services of Attorney Rosenberg for my case. Not only was he incredibly professional, competent, and thorough, but also demonstrated compassion and understanding during a stressful time. He was clear about cost and his representation was well worth the fees charged. I would absolutely recommend his services for anyone looking for representation. He and his team were pleasant and easy to work with and were clear and direct throughout the process. I will certainly be retaining his services for any future legal needs.

Smoothest Bankruptcy ever!
By far the absolute best experience I have ever had with a law firm! It started with a blind internet inquiry which was followed up with a phone call within minutes by the firm. I was nervous but made almost immediately comfortable by Attorney Max Rosenberg on the phone. Max is like no other lawyer I have ever worked with, extremely professional yet very personable, funny, charming and he put me right at ease. The entire process was amazing, painless and most importantly, affordable. He and his entire staff were a complete joy to deal with and they kept me updated throughout the entire process. I couldn't of asked for anything more. I was 100% satisfied with the outcome and would confidently recommend the team to friends, family and anyone else requiring their services. Max, you and your team rock!!

Attorney Rosenberg is without a doubt the best!
Attorney Rosenberg went above and beyond to help me out of a tough, complicated situation. Attorney Rosenberg made sure all the T’s were crossed and I’s were dotted so that everything went smoothly. He is very professional and very good at what he does! I could not thank him enough for all the time and energy he and his team spent on my case. So happy I was referred to Attorney Rosenberg and his firm for my issue and so grateful for everything that was done for my case.

I couldn't have had a better experience.
Got slammed in debt due to a vehicle crash I never recovered from and then I got scare letters, then I got served. Max could not have been more compassionate, knowledgeable, chipper and kind. Has the patience of a lamb. He helped make bankruptcy not feel like such a bad thing on the contrary of popular belief that your life as you know it is over if you file. He'll pick up the phone, answer your emails and the best part - sees you as a human. I will come back to this guy if I ever have any more legal problems.

His Word is a Bond. Excellent Result
I met Mr. Rosenberg approximately a year and half ago. I was in a low point of life due to the fact that bankruptcy was in my future. He explained from day one, the facts. Positives and negative possibilities, but also told me he would fight until the end for me. He and his firm did exactly that. Needless to say, I’m in a better place due to a fresh start. Thanks you to Mr Rosenberg and the entire law firm. James Walsh.
