Bruce is excellent and understanding
Me and my wife live in a condo in Palm Beach County. We have been going back and forth with our HOA association for years disputing our monthly assessment payments. Long story short, we made our payments, however the association said we didn't and we ended up going back and forth against them. The association ended up filing several liens against our property and threatened to foreclose on our property. I was blessed to find Bruce and his team. In the end, Bruce and his team helped us to settle this matter, removing the property liens, settling with the association for a small fraction and saving our property from foreclosure. Not only is Bruce an expert in what he does but he is very understanding. If you live in a condo and you're getting hit with property liens or foreclosure threats, give Bruce a call immediately!

So kind and professional
I was having a difficult time with my current situation and I had so many questions. From the moment I talked to Bruce, I could tell he was genuine and he truly cared about his clients and his work. It is so refreshing to find someone highly skilled and knowledgeable in their profession, that is also caring and patient. A rare thing these days. Divorce is a highly emotional, stressful time period, his compassion and ability to relate to clients is what makes him so wonderful. I am happy our paths crossed and I highly recommend him and his team.

Superb Attorney
I sought Mr. Rosenwater's services in the summer of 2016, Since then Mr. Rosenwater and his paralegal Peggy May has superbly guided me through all my legal matters. Bruce did an outstanding job of settling real estate matters & business deal matters simultaneously. Peggy was very helpful and they always responded back whenever i had a question. I highly recommended Bruce and it was the best choice I could have made. Very professional and detailed and followed through all the way. He never mislead me and always keep me informed all the way up until the closing of all my cases.

Been using Bruce for years and only have nice things to say
I have nothing but great things to say about this law firm. I have had a long-standing relationship with Bruce and have utilized his services across a variety of legal areas. Unlike most other attorneys, he is extremely responsive and cooperative. He answers his emails quickly and delivers when promised. He is well-versed in different aspects of the law, but he will not hesitate to inform me if he believes I would be better suited with another type attorney depending on the situation. I appreciate that he does not have an ego issue with his recommendations and truly does what is best for the client.

Business Bodyguard
Just an awesome, safe, trusting experience. I never had to retain the services of an attorney, but I went through unfortunate situations with my real estate property, where I was bamboozled by the seller AND property manager. Very upsetting experience because I purchased the property in good faith and I was scammed by both parties. I retained Mr. Rosenwater's services and he rectified the situation with his knowledge and expertise. His name is known in the real estate industry. Now all I have to is say Mr. Rosenwater is my attorney, and people think twice before pulling a con!

Used for a closing on the sale of my home
There are not enough words to express my appreciation for what Bruce and his paralegal Lisa did for me during a difficult situation during my upcoming closing. Not only did he take on the challenge the week before I was to close with another title company (in the Tampa area), we closed on time! They were prompt, excellent communication and was available whenever I needed them. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
