Fantastic lawyer
Mr. Rose did the impossible for me. I had a charge against me I thought was going to impact my life for a very long time and he got it dropped. Mr. Rose is a very impressive lawyer and I recommend him to everyone that needs a lawyer in the area. I'm very grateful for what he was able to do.

Excellent Defense Attorney
When you find you are in need of a Defense Attorney, Seth Rose is the person you want on your side. He is a well informed, a good communicator, and a huge calming factor to the people he represents. I have seen him in action - first hand. He is also local and very knowledgeable in South Carolina law.

GOAT LAWYER!
Always in good hands with Seth! He delivers at a high rate, is always easy to reach, and more importantly a man of the people. Definitely does a lot for the community outside of law as well! 10/10

Awesome
Seth Rose is Highly Recommended in Columbia and surrounding areas. Mister Rose is a dedicated, hardworking and upstanding lawyer. Seth was recommended to us at the right time. Seth opened doors I didn't belive could be open. I thank Mister Rose for the opportunity of being a client of his and would recommend him to anyone.

Heard nothing but GREAT things about the infamous Seth Rose!!
I am undergoing helping my boyfriend with a case that he is really not sure what he is about to go through. Mr. Rose told me what I needed to do in order to help him and the steps I should take. I like the fact that he is very informative and he actually responds promptly. Even better that he not the typical stuck up lawyer. He has a personal effect to him, as if you've known him for years. Out of 5 lawyers I choose him. I honestly have faith that he knows what he is doing. All bets on him. I have heard so many things about him. So many people I know knows who Seth Rose is. I need to know what is going on and I believe he will keep us well informed.

Saved my Future
I was arrested for a DUI while in college and I am so grateful I came to Seth. As soon as I met him, I knew I was in great hands and he told me “the worst part is over. I will handle everything” and he sure did. Within a couple of weeks, everything was taken care of. He got my DUI dismissed and I will have a clean record thanks to him. Seth saved my future and I am forever grateful!

Amazing Lawyer
I was struggling to find guidance after getting two alcohol related charges in college and Seth was the right person to go to. Not only did he make me feel more at ease about my situation, but he also got both my charges dropped and off my record. I highly recommend him!

Our family is grateful
It was a grand day when Seth Rose was recommended to us for my brother's parole attorney. His dedication, his belief in this cause, his whole effort he gave to obtaining my brother's long overdue parole. I don't have enough words of praise or thanks to give to Mr. Rose. He is ABSOLUTELY the BEST!

Helped me save my future
I was arrested twice while in college, the legitimacy of the arrests are a separate story. Regardless, my future, degree, and hard work hung in the balance. Seth comforted me, answered all my questions, and had me well prepared for everything thrown at me. Within six months of both arrests, I had a clean record and miniscule fees. The guy saved my future and he is the best around. Do not look elsewhere, you have my word.

THE lawyer for DUI in Columbia
My son made a very bad decision and was charged with DUI while attending college. Seth Rose came highly recommended as the person we needed to represent my son. He worked diligently to resolve the DUI, but before the court dat,e my son was charged with a second DUI. Needless to say, he was facing a challenging future. Seth took the 2nd DUI and explained the difficulty of the cases. We basically put all of our trust and my son's future in Seth's hands and boy did he deliver. Not only did he get both of the DUIs resolved and off his record, he got the first one resolved TWICE!! He gave my son his life back! If you ever need legal representation for DUI in Columbia, Seth Rose is definitely who you want.

Happy and Relieved Clients
Seth Rose went over and above our highest expectations in not only getting our case dismissed but also getting absolutely no points on the driving record, as if the charge never existed. He handled our case quickly and professionally and we had full confidence in him all the way. He was a God-send to us & we give him our highest recommendations!

Big Salute to the Cleaner!!
I had heard about Mr. Rose’s services through friends and decided to have him represent me in court. My friends spoke highly of Mr. Rose for good reason- he goes above and beyond the expectations customers set for their lawyers. I could not have been more satisfied with the way he handled my case and got my charges dismissed. If a clean record is what you desire, don’t hesitate to call the cleaner now!

What an amazing, honest, and diligent attorney!
We were in a really bad situation with our son. He made a huge mistake and so much was at stake for him. He could have lost his future if we did nothing to help him. We were literally freaking out and getting all kinds of conflicting advice on how to handle what we were going through. It was so confusing! Seth told us how he would handle things if it was his own family. He spent time with us before we hired him. He gave us his cell phone #, took text, talked to us when we needed him and he answered questions on the fly. He calmed us down and kept us sane though out this ordeal. His way of doing things made sense to us. He couldn't guarantee us anything but his confidence helped us to be confident as well. His patience with explaining things made all the difference in comparison to other attorneys we talked to. In the end he accomplished the best outcome possible. We are so happy. SO SO PLEASED! I would recommend Seth to anyone in need of criminal defense. This man knows what he is doing! My family is very very thankful to Seth and I've asked him to use us as a reference anytime!

Excellent service
Seth Rose was the best lawyer I could possibly ask for. He was personable, extremely responsive, and always kept me informed on what was going on with my case. With Seth, I was able to get, without a doubt, the most ideal outcome for my case; I had a few underage drinking charges dropped and will have a simple possession charged conditionally dismissed and expunged after six months.

Best lawyer
Mr. Rose was highly recommended to me and he was as advertised. He handled an issue that was very embarrassing for me and my family. I have a clean record thanks to him and his efforts. Wouldn't use anyone else.
