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!

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.

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.

I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Detorres and I were adversaries on a rather contentious matter. Ms. Detorres was always professional and courteous. While she was a very zealous advocate for her client, she was also willing to work with me to reach an amicable resolution for our clients. She was a pleasure to work with.

I endorse this lawyer. Rosanne and I have opposed one another on many cases over the past 15-20 years. She fights hard for her clients but maintains her professionalism at all times. She is firm but reasonable. Her clients are well served by her tenacity and reasonableness. I endorse her without hesitation.
