Jonathan Rosenberg is a leading New York criminal defense lawyer and appellate advocate with offices in downtown Brooklyn and Midtown Manhattan. Counsel to some of Brooklyn's best lawyers, including the Howard Greenberg Law Firm, Jonathan represents clients across all New York counties, in criminal and appellate matters ranging from misdemeanors to major felonies, summary judgments to administrative decisions, and all matters in defense of a client's Constitutional rights. Between jury trials, Jonathan focuses his advocacy on perfecting appeals, drafting motions, and handling post-judgment matters across the State of New York.

Depending on the nature of your case, Jonathan works with 3 to 5 attorneys who bring anywhere from 35 to 55 years of combined courtroom experience in fighting for the just and fair outcome at all stages of judicial process. As any exonerated individual -- whether at trial or on appeal -- would tell you, a well-organized legal team with a head lawyer is much more effective than an overworked solo attorney who outsources written motions to a paralegal. 

When you're up against the resources of a powerful opposition, you need a legal team that's aggressive, creative, and imminently responsive. You need the best. Call Jonathan directly at (718) 715-4845

Amazing is an understatement
His experience, ability to explain difficult things in plain English, and depth knowledge exceeded my expectations many times over. When he helped me with a situation, I became more relaxed knowing that I indeed have an outstanding attorney.

Prompt, precise , very clear logic and demonstration of how the law applies
I'd 'followed up' on a posting Counselor Rosenberg had made to a previous query to Avvo regarding the legal use under NYS V&T law of 'parking', 'standing' and the negative of these- the law as written is confusing and convoluted [ surprise] Mr. Rosenberg grasped the essence of my question first thing and went right to the heart of the matter. Without hesitation he expanded his thinking to me on a few points that remained obscure. If I have a need for a criminal defense attorney, J Rosenberg would be my first call!

Tells it like it is
Mr. Rosenberg's an honest, yet aggressive lawyer who tells you the truth and has no shame fighting for your case to the bitter end. I won't go into details about what happened, but he was there from the beginning to end, and I recommend his services highly.

You can't go wrong with Jon
Jonathan asked me to write a review and I'm happy to do so. Without going into much detail, he was tremendously helpful in resolving my case, although the process felt like it took forever. But he kept in contact, answered his calls, and let me know what was going on along the way. Given the outcome, it was worth the wait. But he's a true professional, an aggressive lawyer, and knows how to handle the system better than anyone I worked with before.

Works diligently
I had a good experience with this Attorny. I was in desperate need of an appeals Attorny in order to meet a deadline and this man was very responsive to all my texts and calls. I was able to consult with him in a matter of days and he was very helpful and understanding of my situation. He also worked quickly in resolving the situation I was put into. I’m happy to say I won the case and will keep him in mind for myself or as a recommendation. Thank you for your help!

Hire The Best - Criminal Defense Attorney
Attorney Rosenberg turned a family political battleground and turned it into a winning legal ground - thrown out and dismiss. Where another Attorney may convince you to settle, Attorney Rosenberg will fight for your rights, stand up to court injustice, provide honest legal options and give you his best exemplary legal representation. Attorney Rosenberg comes to court as if he is in trial day 1. He woke up the entire court room, officers and commanded there attention. In fact, the court officer nominated him for our future President of United States. Attorney Rosenberg 's well crafted Motion dismissed a fraudulent aggravated harrassment charge that could have taken months to contest it took him less than 4 court appearances to have the case thrown out. Many thanks for restoring our hope and faith in a broken judicial and over police system. Our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for your phenomenal legal representation and win.

Better Call Jonny!
Profiled in the BBC series "Last Chance Lawyer NYC," Jonny is a fearless advocate who will fight tirelessly for your rights. He represented me on two false back-to-back domestic violence cases. I refused to take an ACD (as I was innocent), so Jonny filed several sets of motions to get my cases fully dismissed. It took time and patience, but he was with me all the way. I was not your average client and we had many long, late night conversations about the law, relevant cases and strategy. I also had him represent my friend on a housing case and he obtained a great outcome. His rates are very reasonable, like his senior counterpart Howard Greenberg, Jonny is your last chance lawyer!

Very good listener
Mr. Rosenberg was patient and listened to my case from calling to meeting. Other lawyers told me promises but he did the work and did it very well and we would recommend his services.

Fought hard for me and won
Jonathan fought my case in court for months until the charges were ultimately dropped because the prosecution knew they had a weak case without evidence. He listened and answered my calls and when said he would do something, he did it. Very happy with his help and services! Thank you

Case Dismissed! Thank you!
I'm really grateful I found Jonathan because he not only got my case dismissed before trial, but literally got me out of jail when the prosecution wanted to give me a high bail! He always answered my calls, worked hard, and never doubted what I said. Best lawyer I've worked with!!
