Great lawyer, takes a long-term view
Throughout this process, Marty has been both a good lawyer and a trusted friend. He consistently takes a reasonable and measured approach with all parties and is a consummate professional. His experience speaks for itself - he has been doing family law in Westchester for decades, and has seen it all. He uses that experience to thoughtfully explain all the facets of a case to consider for both the short and long term. I think Marty does an excellent job of crafting agreements and resolutions that focus on the long term benefit of his clients. These are difficult personal situations, so having someone who brings that perspective is invaluable. I highly recommend Marty to anyone looking for a lawyer to represent them in any divorce or separation process.

A Great Attorney and Gentleman
I contacted Mr Rosen while looking for an attorney with matrimonial proceedings expertise. He has been representing me for the past year. I have found him to have a great deal of compassion and empathy and has tried to make the process go as smoothly as possible. He thoroughly explains everything and advises what’s next every step of the way. I have from the very beginning had the upmost confidence in his ability to work towards a resolution on my behalf. He always makes himself available to me in person, phone, text or email. Mr Rosen is a genuine gentleman and true class act. He is also a no-nonsense, fierce advocate for what is right and just. Also, his fees are fair and reasonable. I’m very happy that I hired Mr Rosen and would highly recommend him to anyone needing any type of matrimonial representation.

Couldn't ask for more
Marty has a pretty rare combination of qualities - technical expertise from decades of practice in family law, and extreme caring for clients from just being a good human being. He was the 8th lawyer I interviewed and I walked straight out of his office to the bank to get the check for his retainer. He is super smart but super humble. You can reach him at all times and he will take your call, which was certainly a comfort to me. He'll energetically go to bat for you when your rights are being unfairly trampled, and I've seen him respectfully but pointedly rebuke even judges. But he'll also tell you when you yourself are in the wrong or expecting too much - I think that's important in family law. He will try to minimize costs and find the most efficient way to solve a problem. But the thing I was most amazed by was that Marty always made me feel like I was important, not just my legal case. I came to him at a very difficult time in my life and he was the rock I needed.

Compassionate & Experienced
From our initial consult and throughout, Mr. Rosen has always treated me with the utmost care and respect. He had my best interests at heart and truly helped me navigate through a challenging situation. His personalized touch is excellent. I would feel 100% confident in referring family and friends to him should the need arise.

Highly recommend for matrimonial and family law matters
Marty Rosen represented me as the Plaintiff in my divorce proceedings which were protracted and complex. Marty was on top of all of the moving parts over a two year period which resulted in an extremely equitable ruling. I recommend him highly, without hesitation.

A true gentleman
Martin is professional, patient and also has a great sense of humor. I retained him for my divorce and thanks to his organization skills, he kept me on track! I was never in a situation where I could not get ahold of Martin and always knew where we were in the case. I would recommend Martin with complete certainty and I hope that I can continue a personal relationship with Martin in the future.

An Outstanding Lawyer!
I highly recommend Mr. Rosen to anyone needing a family attorney. I hired Mr. Rosen after a previous lawyer had given up on my case. My former husband had a nasty and vindictive attorney that’s used to getting what he wants. NOT with Mr.Rosen! He made me feel less overwhelmed when needing to face my formers attorney. He listened and advised me every step of the way. He knows the laws well. He’s not afraid to stand up to anyone to fight for his clients. If ever I need an attorney again he will be my first call hands down!

Professional, Honest and Great Person
Martin is a seasoned and knowledgable professional. Not only was he very responsive to any questions I had, but he was also clear and concise in his answers. He did not let unresolved issues linger and he was able to work on solutions very quickly. Martin was also flexible with his time allowing me to meet with him early in the mornings to discuss the case. I am grateful for his work and recommend him to anyone.

Marty Rosen - the very best - he always goes above and beyond!
I hired Marty to represent me in my divorce proceedings after interviewing several other attorneys. None of them met Marty's high standards, wealth of knowledge or immediate grasp of my current situation. He gave me strength, excellent advice and sincere concern for my children, at a time when my world was crumbling around me. Marty's depth of knowledge of the law, calm demeanor, quick mind and constant energy made our frequent courtroom appearances successful, until the conclusion of my divorce. He was supportive, gave me strength and courage and was always available. I will never be able to fully thank Marty for all he did to help but I know we are here today because of him. Thank you, Marty!

Martin Rosen - Honest, Professional, Intelligent, and Tenacious
I hired Martin Rosen in July of 2018 to represent me in divorce proceedings from my husband of 34 years. I was fortunate to have found Martin through a mutual friend, and at the close of our initial consultation, I hired him. Martin explained why I needed immediate representation, whether he or another attorney, based upon the background I provided during our meeting and after I explained what my husband was doing. My first impression of Martin was that he was professional, straightforward, and smart. Martin has distinguished himself throughout these months by embodying those qualities and more. Mine is a complex proceeding and we are dealing with opposing counsel who repeatedly resorts to lowbrow, senseless tactics. Martin has upheld the ethical standards of his profession and has always remained respectful. His conduct has never wavered. Martin is available to me after hours and on weekends; I have needed to contact him during both. I can count on his sage advice and guidance, which I’m most grateful for. We communicate very well, and Martin provides complete answers to my questions. When not certain about something, he immediately investigates and provides a comprehensive response. As decisions need to be made, Martin explains several options and offers his advice. Together we make a decision. Martin keeps me up-to-date on exactly where we are in my divorce action and what to expect next. This is a very stressful time in my life, likely the most stressful, and having Martin as my attorney has helped ease that tension. I have confidence in his abilities and feel I have the best legal representation possible, that will ultimately result in a favorable outcome. I would recommend Martin to anyone looking for an outstanding divorce attorney. He will be your advocate throughout the action, and you can count on him to keep you informed and prepared every step of the way.

A Lawyer who puts you and your best interest first!
I selected Mr. Rosen (aka Marty) to represent me for my divorce after several other attorney consultations. The reason why I selected him was not only based on his profession experience and background, but it was also based on the fact that he genuinely cared about me and my situation. There is a certain calming energy about him and when you are going through such a difficult time, the last thing you want is an attorney who makes you crazier than your situation! Marty has given me a sense of safety and security through his work and services. Although my divorce has not been finalized yet (it will be VERY soon), he has been my sounding board and a friend that will not give up for me. I think the best part for me was the fact that he was always available to talk, even when he was not in the office. That is such an important aspect to the services he provides because during the divorce process, things come up ALL the time that you never expect especially if there are children involved. Thank you for all that you do and continue to do Mr. Rosen!

High Integrity Lawyer
Mr. Rosen came to me high recommended and for good reason. I hired Mr. Rosen to represent me in post divorce settlement proceedings. His skill and integrity are very noteworthy. He has made himself available to me at all times and has been very diligent with my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Rosen as an attorney to anyone.

Hard working, Caring, Personable & a Fighter
My case is on going. Mr Rosen is still fighting for me and by my side with the same tenacity as he was when I first retained him. He hasn't missed a beat. He always answers my calls and keeps me updated, he also takes it upon himself to do his own research relevant to the case. I won a couple battles because of Marty, I cant wait to win the war and get some closure for my daughter! Thank you
