I was referred to Rosalie by a firm in Philadelphia for a confidential matter. I was initially hesitant because of the lack of much precedent for my case,
but upon my first meeting with her, I knew that I was in good hands.
She was good-natured and wonderful to work with, instantly putting my mind at ease. I was led through the entire process, with Rosalie making sure all of our bases were covered and ensuring my confidentiality.
I would recommend her to anyone - she made a frustrating matter painless with the level of care she gave me.

We were referred to Rosalie by a friend to handle my mothers estate and could not have been happier with the choice.
From our initial phone call I felt confident that Rosalie understood our situation. We moved forward and she proceeded to handle it with the utmost professionalism while also respecting the fact that we had recently suffered a loss.
She handled every aspect of the process, explaining each step along the way which afforded us the comfort of knowing everything was covered without any of the pressure.
I have absolutely no hesitations in recommending her to anyone.

My wife and I just completed a major revision of our ten year old estate plan including wills, enduring powers of attorney, and health care powers of attorney. Our wishes on a number of items were complex and had to be written to cover some major potential contingencies. Rosalie listens carefully, asks for clarification where your thoughts need it, and works very hard to see that the documents provide your agents the direction needed to carry out the plan as you would like it to be.

I've known Rosalie as a colleague and also as a member of the same community. Rosalie is kind, intelligent, hard working, and meticulous in every thing she does. She is a good listener and she would use her talents to ensure that the estate plan devised would meet her clients' needs and wants.

I write both as a colleague and a client, as my family and I retained Rosalie and found her to exceed our expectations, both as a person and as a lawyer. Estate planning is not the most pleasant of topics, so her kindness and personal attention has been very much appreciated by me and my family. Moreover, she is extremely talented in what she does. For example, our estate planning involved certain complicated matters with international implications. Nevertheless, Rosalie was unfazed by the uniqueness and knowledgeable in all areas necessary in order to protect our interests and accomplish our goals. Rosalie is without question very detailed, thorough, and skilled. What is most interesting is that she also has those rare human qualities of kindness and caring and humility that often times many in our profession lack. As not only her client but also her colleague, I am very proud that she represents the very best of what my profession has to offer.
