Jeremy Fredrick Rosenthal saved me and my future
Jeremy Fredrick Rosenthal is an amazing lawyer and genius strategist who helped me through a really difficult time in my life. I violated probation for a criminal defense case and was looking at jail time, not to mention embarrassment, humiliation and most likely loss of any future advancement in my business. He was highly recommended by a well recognized business lawyer friend of mine and I’m glad I went with the recommendation. I was in a true mess, when I first contacted Jeremy, having never been in trouble with the law, I was extremely shaken and confused, he was able to hear me out and strategize how he would approach my case in his candid and analytical manner. He fights for you and is someone who doesn’t like to lose. To have someone in my corner who will stand and fight for me and tell me that it was going to be all ok as long as I told the truth brought me relief. He saved me and my future and he was calm and direct while firmly reassuring me in our discussions. Jeremy was able to make a small speed bump out of the mountain of stress I was dealing with. He is a genius lawyer who brought down the charges making sure I would not have to go to jail time. His concern for me and my anguish were genuine and came from a real place I was so impressed by his courtroom skills and his knowledge of the law and of people in Collin County. I can never repay him for his efforts and his professionalism, they were priceless to me, and for providing me to freedom to continue to be a productive member of society. I definitely refer him business from my network of contacts! I would highly recommend Jeremy Fredrick Rosenthal… he is without a doubt the absolutely BEST!!!

Mr.Rosenthal,I just want to express my immense gratitude for your incredible ability and experience in the court room. You had this certain frank and cavalier quality that was both reassuring and representative of your overall skill and ability in law. What I saw happen in that court room could only best be described as genius-- and had a first row seat to watch a master at work! I am so appreciative of all you have done for me. Please let me know if there is anything in the future I can do for you to repay you for your efforts on my behalf. Again, please know I will forever refer you and you expertise to anyone I know who finds themselves in a bind! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you….
