Excellent Attorney
Unfortunately, I found myself in a position where I had to sue my employer. After months of trying to settle things on my own and getting pushed around by their big name law firm I decided to hire Jesse Rose I was a little nervous about this at first. In the past whenever I needed a lawyer for something I found that the free consultation they offer is usually a 3 minute phone conversation where the rush through the facts of the case. With Jesse things were different, I met him in his office after a phone conversation. He is very bright and intelligent, never spoke above my head and took time to explain everything to me and lay out the strategy we would use.His confidence in himself and my case convinced me to hire him. He was always in constant touch with me and usually responded to my emails right away. Amazingly within 3 weeks of hiring him a settlement agreement was being hammered out. After 6 months of trying to do it myself and getting nowhere. Hopefully I will never need an employment Attorney again, but if I do i would not hesitate calling on Jesse. I give him the highest endorsement possible. Great Lawyer, True Professional.

Professionalism , dedication and strength !
I first heard of Atorney Jesse Rose last year in the summer when I was fired unfairly and my best friend recommended his service . I was walking in such a complicated world having to sue someone and having to deal with such a situation but the moment I made the call to request an appointment in Mr Rose's office in NYC , things became better. I said my story with or without the right information but I felt really like telling my frustration to one of my best friends because that's how Mr Rose made me feel which was great. Upon my unfortunate event he decided to take my case and help me win not just the court case but my pride back too . Since day one I was at all times constantly updated and informed by Mr Rose and his lovely secretary with steps that are ready to take and decisions to make until after about 3-4 months of "fights" with the other party he won , nicely done too .. And to be fair I don't know how he made it all seamlessly because at the end that's how it was ! I can't thank Mr Rose enough because he brought justice to me in times where I felt less than an underdog or too small to fight against the giant my former employer was.. I found calm a great quality Mr Rose has amongst character and attitude ! I'll recommend The Rose Law Group anytime of the day to anyone no matter how small or big the case can be. I'll say they will take care of you and you'll be in great hands . That's a promise I make ! Thank you kindly The Rose Law Group , thank you Mr Rose!

Professional yet personable and well informed.
Having been unjustly fired at the worst possible moment, weeks away from closing on my first home, Jesse was comforting as well as swift to act. He enabled us to complete our first home purchase and negotiated a very fair settlement. When other lawyers that were consulted said my case wasn't worth the effort Jesse stepped up and helped in a time of need. Recommend him for any of your employment related issues....extremely knowledgeable within the field and not afraid to act!

Mr. Rose was very professional and responsive. He answered all questions that I had, kept me very well informed of all possibilities of my case, and ultimately got a better result than I had anticipated. I was very impressed with this experience. I would highly recommend.

Excellent Experience
I had worked at a restaurant chain and I was given a contract when hired. The company never honored the contract after 2 years of working at the place, they were refusing to honor the contract. That's when I contacted Mr. Rose, he invited me to come to his office, when I arrived he was with another client and his assistant told me to have a seat. Just a few minutes later I was welcomed into his office where we began to discuss my case. Mr. Rose assured me that he would try to do what ever he could in order to help me, he was very polite and respectful. He took my case and contacted my former employer, just over a month later we were given a settlement offer that Mr. Rose was able to negotiate with my former employer. The entire time that he was working on the case he always made sure to keep me updated on the status. I am very thankful for the experience I encountered while working with him and I would recommend his services to anyone who is in need of an employment attorney.

Honest and reliable
I was fairly distrustful of lawyers until I hired Jesse. I mean, lawyer-speak is insane. Trying to negotiate a contract if you don't speak it fluently is an exercise in futility. So naturally, non-lawyers are a little leery of anyone who does. But Jesse put me at ease instantly. His down-to-earth, personable style was a welcome surprise, and his tell-it-like-it-is honesty was a much-needed respite in the at-times overwhelming process of dealing with an organization that was desperately trying to screw me over. He gave me excellent advice about a difficult situation, and negotiated the best possible contract for me. Even better, he didn't over-charge me, even though he could have and gotten away with it. And on top of all that, he's got a good sense of humor. I couldn't be happier with my decision to hire him, and would hire him again in a heartbeat if the need ever arises. If you're looking for an honest lawyer, this is your guy. Now all I need to do is find an honest mechanic and my life will be hunky-dory. I'm not gonna hold my breath on that one, though. ;)

Phillips & Associates Law Firm was phenomenal in handling my case. Mr. Jesse Rose was very through and resolved my case in a timely manner. He was also knowledgeable, good listener, answered all my questions, returned all phone calls, empathetic and honest with me in regards to my issues. All staff members were very courteous whenever I visited the office. I recommend him highly to anyone that needs assistance with employment/labor matters.

Amazing experience with Jesse Rose
I contacted Mr. Rose due to an issue that I was having at work and he responded quickly and after asking me the proper questions, he felt that he was able to help me. Before I was able to get to his office for a meeting, my company offered me a deal so I contacted Mr. Rose, who told me that the deal was something that I should take so that I could receive the most compensation. Mr. Rose answered my questions quickly and gave me advice, even when he knew that I would most likely not be using him anymore for my issues. It is hard to find a good attorney that will think about the client/possible client before thinking about his paycheck and I greatly appreciated that. If you are looking for someone who will respond quickly with knowledgeable information and will put you first-I highly recommend that you reach out to Mr. Rose.

Jesse Rose Is Attentive And All Around Excellent
Jesse Rose handled my lawsuit and I could not have been more pleased with his handling of the case. I was suing for wrongful termination and Jesse fought for and achieved the best possible outcome for me, in the shortest amount of time. From the beginning of my case, Jesse kept me informed, was always available to answer my questions, would call me to keep me posted and never seemed not to have time for my case, even though I am sure he was dealing with other cases which were likely to make him and his firm more money-- I never felt that way. I can only assume that Jesse treats all of his clients as though they are important and does everything in his power to ensure the best possible outcome for his clients, because that's all that I've ever seen from him. I recommend him highly and if I ever knew a friend or loved one to have encountered a situation similar to the one for which I sued, I would recommend Jesse in a heartbeat.

Sharp, Honest, Aggressive, Knowledgeable, and Hard Working from start to successful finish.
Mr. Rose was always straight forward and honest with me, diligent and creative with the case and aggressive with the defendant. He did an excellent job right to the end where we had a satisfactory resolution.

''The Master mind''
I had been involved in a seemed, to be difficult discrimination case at times, but when Mr. Rose came on board, the ups and downs of the case immediately smoothened out. Mr Rose is very smart man. One of his greatest attributes is that he listens well. I believe, this allows him to take charge of his cases. He pulls the opposition into his ballpark and blows them out. He's definately in charge. In my case, Mr. Rose was confident, respectful, trustworthy, responsive,knowledgeable and kept me infomed through out my case. He's "Top Gun" . P.S. Mr. Rose, Keep up the fantastic job that you do! Your going to be a famous attorney one of these days.

Union worker in civil rights case
Mr. Jesse Rose is a masterful attorney who puts things into simple terms when addressing complicated legal matters. He always listens, is more than pleasant , and insightful. He looks at the case from all perspectives choosing a strategy that best suits the client. As employment law is a lengthy process, Mr. Rose goes above and beyond to help with EEOC complaints and the steps to properly represent the client with a pro se litigation. He is honest on the merits of the case and sympathetic at the same time. This rare combination shows integrity when dealing with sensitive issues. Highly recommended after several attempts at finding a suitable attorney.

A Single Mom
Mr. Rose was a professional at all times. He provided information and options when I had no idea what to do. He was the only helpful person to me as a pro se litigant. I could not afford to hire an attorney myself but Mr. Rose helped me through my entire case. He is not just a lawyer he is a person and for those of you who have had legal assistance not all lawyers are people too. Call him, e-mail him anytime and he will call you back or e-mail you back very very quickly. count on him.

Lawyer took on the case
Most people would have said maybe i didnt have a case. It seems that on the phone most attorneys i contacted rushed me into making decisions or gave me attitude because i didnt understand litigation terminology. I would say Jesse Rose was a little pushy. At the office I left feeling not empowered but rather still confused and felt as if he was a little smug with me; not being rude but rather coming off as the smart kid in class who sped through knowledge as if your supposed to pick it up as fast as him. I had many questions but felt rushed like he didnt have the time for me , so i didnt ask questions. I remember saying that i did not have the money to go to court and was trying to avoid that option and he clearly expressed his dis concern saying as a lawyer when he has a client that states they may not be able to pay it makes him not want to take the case. Overall he was rather polite and he did get on the case. He fought for me and he took a case that most probably would say did not exist but i believed in my heart that the problem was relevant and i had been done wrong. Would I hire Jesse Rose again ....absolutely because he was honest and candid with me about my situation. He contacted me several times and i didnt really have to put forth much work. He did the work after sitting down and drawing up a complaint.
