If you want the best go for Scott!!
Rose Legal Services is the best. Scott Rose is the best attorney I have worked with. His support staff is also responsive and professional, keeping us updated on progress and results. Scott is the real thing by every metric and delivered perfect results. In our case, Scott litigated an expungement of a felony arrest for property damage for my son, which was in fact an accident and not intentional. From the first zoom interview with Scott through the practice zoom session for the court hearing, Scott was completely professional, clear thinking, personable, and very open to our suggestions and concerns. Scott clearly explained the law, his assessment, and his strategy to win the case. The court proceeding and judgement was a complete success. Thanks Rose Legal Services!!!!

Great staff on this team
The staff at Rose Legal kept me updated on progress of my situation and quickly responded to any questions I asked. I have never had to use this type of service and hope I never have to in future, but if I did I'd definitely reach out to this team again.

Amazing every step of the way
The entire staff I have encountered at Rose Legal Services has been extremely understanding, nice and very responsive since the beginning. Each time I have talked with someone about my case I never left with questions. I was fully aware of anything going on at all times. Not to mention my attorney his self made sure to communicate everything clearly and made sure I was comfortable. They are so understanding in knowing that things happen in life, and get straight to it. I am forever grateful for this team and how they have helped me!

Scary situation avoided!!
I was very lucky and blessed to find Scott Rose and Rose Legal Services when I was arrested. During the Covid pandemic, with the prosecuting attorney’s office taking their time, Scott and his team were with me every step of the way. They fought for me and for my rights as a defendant in what seemed like a case that would last forever. At the end of it all, I truly believe that with any other attorney my case would have gone another way, and I would see much greater consequences than what I have been assigned. I am so grateful for Scott and this team of dedicated staff!!!

Best I've ever encountered!
I am so happy with the courtesy, understanding, compassion, and the professionalism, wonderful communication and ease of everything from beginning to end of my case. I will be forever grateful to everyone at this law firm for what they've done for me and will recommend them forever! I was unreasonably charged with going 26 mi over the speed limit when I was absolutely not doing that, had plenty of proof to show it, my insurance app tracks my speed and location live time! But the truth is the officer that pulled me over didn't care, he literally told me that he was going after the car that had passed by me like I was sitting still but got me instead! What the heck? Umm are you serious? Why just because I drive a red vehicle like the one that passed me? That would have given me a class B felony! I have never had a record in my entire life time! Well this law firm went to bat for me and got it taken care of without any points on my license! Not only that but they did it at such an incredible price that I had to ask them three times if they were sure that's all it cost! I'm telling you, this law firm is the best in the state of Missouri end of equation. If you need a good attorney anyone in this law firm can represent you and you can know for a fact that you will be represented with first class service, extremely intelligent and well-versed professionals and be treated fairly and equitably.

Defended me in a felony criminal case
I was arrested for a first degree sex offense in which there was a mandated charge. Mr. Rose very effectively pled the offense down to a 3rd degree felony. I was particularly pleased by my first contact with Mr. Rose in that he stated that this was clearly a very frightening experience for me as it was my first experience with the legal system in anything worse than a traffic ticket. He showed true compassion for my plight and tried to help me to make prudent and approprite decisions. I would not only recommend Mr. Rose, I would highly recommend him. I might add that his staff was also supportive and very helpful which reflects positivlely on the man and his practice.

Fast, efficient and friendly!
Quick response to my initial inquiry, never felt pressured to use their services, handled my case with fact finding, documentation, and follow up. Kept me in the know each step of the way. Neve made me feel bad for needing their help. Everyone I encountered was friendly and knowledgeable. Hopefully I won't need them again, but if I do, I'm a customer for life. Scott and his team get an A++ rating.

Excellent
Mr. Rose and Mr. Lea were instrumental in securing an Order of Protection for my daughter. They exhibit excellent knowledge of the law, and have shown kindness and compassion. These are the qualities of an excellent Lawyer. I would give them 10 stars if I could. I highly recommend them.

Excellent customer service
Rose Legal Services provided me with excellent customer service. Scott personally typed up my details in my initial consultation. It made me feel like someone finally was listening to me. I was able to make affordable payment arrangements in order to pay my retainer. During COVID-19, his staff kept me up to date for 15 months with a "Matter of Status report". At my trial, Scott demonstrated his legal expertise by immediately addressing the statutes against me. My case was dismissed in sidebar with the judge and the prosecuting attorney. I would highly recommend Rose Legal Services.

Grateful For His Help
I was facing 12 years in prison on two separate felonies, because of Scott I was able to finish out my first term of probation in St. Louis City without additional penalties and then he was able to get my judgment reduced to 3 years SIS probation in the County. Scott and his staff were available to answer all of my questions throughout the cases, which helped greatly to ease the worry and uncertainty I was experiencing. Scott always treated me with dignity, I never felt like a criminal, or less than, in his eyes. I would recommend Scott to anyone in need of a lawyer.

A Highly Satisfied Client
Scott and his staff handled my case with the utmost professionalism. Any questions I posed were always responded to the same day (if not at the time of my call) even if it meant contacting me after business hours. Scott's recommendations as my case developed were always fully explained as well as other available options. I am certainly glad I selected the Rose Legal Services team and highly recommend them to anyone looking for extremely competent legal advice and representation.

Saved me from trouble
Police wanted to talk to me and I didn't fully understand why. I thought since I did nothing wrong, what could go wrong? I am so glad I called Scott Rose. He prevented me from getting questioned. Come to find out, I was wanted for questioning on 3rd degree child molestation (Class C felony!). That ranks right up there with some types of murder! Police are great at coercing false confessions out of people and Mr. Rose knows this. Had I not hired him *before* I was charged with anything, I most likely would have been charged! Fortunately, the DA denied the charges applied by the police, thanks to the help of Mr. Rose. Hopefully I will never have the need for a criminal defense attorney again but if I do, I will definitely want Mr. Rose protecting me.

Ticket resolution
The team at the Rose law firm was professional, responsive and very tactful in resolving my ticket issue. They set clear expectations and followed up to confirm everything was resolved. I highly recommend this firm. They follow the golden rule and are truly service oriented.

Even does what is asked of him
I got myself into an unfortunate incident with the law that I knew I could beat . I did my homework and ended up retaining Mr. Rose. I presented him with information I had and he ran with it, thus I was never even formally charged. I believe his proactive approach was a big reason for my not even having to face a judge in a courtroom.

Great Defense Attorney, Reasonable Fees
Had a great experience with Scott and was pleasantly surprised by his very reasonable flat fee. He reduced my sentence and really understood my case.
