Family Attorney And Professional Competence
Without any hesitation I would recommend Attorney Terry Rose for legal counsel. I chose Mr. Rose to represent me on a family court issue . I found Mr. Rose to be well prepared and competent while clearly stating my case. His guidance, professionalism, and most importantly, effectiveness were greatly appreciated. My words cannot begin to thank Mr. Rose for his help and his professional competence. I highly recommend Mr. Terry Rose.

Great lawyer
Terry has represented me twice now. Both were civil matters. I've never seen a harder worker or more ethical dude in my 36 years being alive.

Knowledge & Experience Unsurpassed
Attorney Terry Rose represented me in a business litigation case. The other party hired a large Milwaukee firm that showed little respect for our Kenosha County Courts and attorneys. After a number of hearings, the case was settled out of court and the Milwaukee firm was served a brand-new perspective on our legal system and the expertise of attorney’s Terry and Christopher Rose. Very grateful for their knowledge inside and outside the courtroom.

Terry Rose currently represents me and has over the last 10 years. I have been very satisfied with his professionalism and attention to detail. Terry Rose is a fair and honest attorney that has the best interest of his client. The review that was posted on this site does not sound like Terry or his team. As petty and pathetic and it may seem, the review probably comes from another upset ex-spouse trying to discredit the excellent services Terry has provided to his "REAL" client. I guess we will never know because they are anonymous. Please, take the previous review with a grain a salt.

Extremely Disappointed At This Crooked Attorney
Mr. Terry Rose did not do anything that he PROMISED he would. He did such a terrible job representing me that I was forced to fire him and hire another attorney. Instead of handling that in a professional manner, he took it personally and overcharged me by thousands of dollars. I sincerely and definitely would not recommend this attorney to ANYONE! Stay away from this attorney!
