4.5 stars 17 totalReview Craig Rosenstein
Posted by Toby
I initially contacted the Rosenstein Law Group after I had been arrested for a very serious matter. After having consulted several other attorneys needless to say I could see I was in for an expensive legal battle.
I met personally with Craig for a free 1-on-1 consultation after already briefing him over the phone earlier in the week. I knew from several other consults I had that I had a defendable case however, due to an additional charge which was later added after which the State had sought a Grand Jury indictment due to an an overly aggressive supervising prosecutor I was more so put in to a position wherefore I needed to accept a plea that I did not feel fully vindicated me.
Now having said that, I do want to recognize not only Craig in particular but his firm as a whole. Jefferson, Mark, Leslie, Tiffany...These individuals make your firm who you are today and I have had nothing but pleasurable experiences with any of the above mentioned individuals. No matter whom I was talking to whether it was the receptionist or one of the attorneys themselves they all made me feel like I was their only client.
Now finally back to the man of the hour. Craig was very forthcoming with me and as he didn't always have the answers that I wanted to hear he and Jefferson were ultimately able to get me the best possible outcome in this particular case and I do however recognize that for a number of reasons. Therefore I am more than satisfied with the result in which we were able to achieve.
After reading the last review I felt almost obliged to post this review because I am a recent client and hired Craig on 4/21/2016. Craig was not only professional at every point during my interactions with him but he didn't hesitate to crack the whip and let me know when I was acting out of line. Rather than become offended like some people might. I actually appreciated this because it kept me on my toes and let me reflect back on the person who I wanted to be moving forward.
Craig faced various roadblocks during my case many of which were unfortunately caused by myself inadvertently. However even despite being setback on numerous occasions due to my poor choices he and The Rosenstein Law Group were able to provide this client with another chance at life which in cases as serious as mine doesn't happen all too often. I was facing anwhere from 5-15 yrs with a mandatory 5 yrs in prison if convicted. That was with a clean record and no priors. I'm pleading to 45 days jail with work furlough. That's why I can't stress enough how important it is to hire the right attorney.
When and if your life hangs in the balance I would not only urge you to contact Craig or any of the attorneys at The Rosenstein Law Group but if your life means as much to you as mine does I would implore you to do such. I couldn't have asked for better counsel. I was charged 4/6/2016 and we should have the case resolved sometime here by the end of October 2016. Craig was also able to save me the cost of the additional trial fee by working quickly and efficiently and got me the result which I sought from the beginning.
This man looked terrible last time I saw him. Sick as a dog. Nonetheless it didn't seem to affect his professional demeanor nor the way he carries himself. He works diligently and never takes a day off.
Hence why I can't sit back and let someone share such a negative review without someone calling Shenanigans when based on my case alone this guy went well above and beyond the call of duty.
Thank You Craig

I hired this firm to help me out with a relatively minor charge. They gladly took my money and negotiated a deal in which I needed to complete 6+ months of classes in order for the charges to be dropped. I completed the classes, but was mailed a letter from the court saying I failed to do so, and so would be found guilty. Obviously a misunderstanding, so I reached out to my lawyer. At this point, I was never allowed to talk to my lawyer, but was told by the receptionist after several attempts to call and reach my attorney something to the tune of "sorry it's not our problem".
I went to court to sort this out on my own, and ironically Craig was there with another client. When the judge asked if I had a lawyer, I explained "yes, he is right there but won't take my calls". The judge asked us to speak outside. Craig refused to take any responsibility, so I went back into the courtroom to deal with this on my own.
Fortunately, the prosecuting attorney seemed to feel bad for me and my poor representation. He let me explain my situation, present evidence that I had completed the necessary classes, and that was that. Easy.
Long story short, I was shown far greater consideration and respect by the PROSECUTOR than the very firm I hired to represent me.

I was charged with, Trafficking of Stolen Property ( Felony 3).
I called Craig for the initial consultation. Craig assured me that his Firm would handle my case with authority. Craig advised that Mr. Jefferson Simmons would be assigned to my case.
Jefferson took great care of my case. Additionally, his communication with me during the process was very professional. Jefferson was very direct and specific pertaining to every detail within the case and a possible resolution for my family's best interest.
The end result pertaining to the case is a complete, Dismissal of all charges.
The process was obviously a perfect outcome for myself. The Rosenstein Law Group, are a team of skilled professionals. They take their time ensuring the; privacy, emotional support, educational advise & the best possible resolutions.
I am so happy that all Charges within my case are, dismissed. They were able to obtain the great resolution on my behalf due to their authority within the court system and much legal knowledge in the justice system.
If you want experienced lawyers, CALL them today.

After I was arrested and charged in Gilbert for a super extreme DUI (BAC above .20) it is safe to say I was terrified. I am not a person who has been in trouble before, and I had no idea how to tackle this situation. Luckily, I had Craig Rosenstein’s phone number and I contacted him immediately. On a Saturday, he took the time to personally speak with me and assure me that the world, in fact, was not ending. Soon after, we met in person and his office tackled my case head on. They are so incredibly detail oriented in their investigation of your case; that alone is worth every penny spent on their services. Although the entire staff at Rosenstein Law is amazing, I had the pleasure of working mostly with attorney Jefferson Simmons. Going through something like this is incredibly stressful, tedious and time consuming, but he made the process for me as easy as possible. My case was a very tough one and we ended up having to proceed with a jury trial. If you find yourself in this situation, YOU NEED an experienced trial attorney like the people at Rosenstein Law. Once we proceeded with the trial, Jefferson blew me away with his incredible knowledge and expertise in the courtroom. Excuse my language, but he is a legitimate badass. No matter the outcome of my situation, I know he did absolutely everything he could to protect my rights and fight for what was fair. In the end, I was found NOT GUILTY. Every situation is different, but I can tell you from firsthand experience, this firm is THE BEST in the business. I refer to them as “life changing” because without their expert defense, I would be facing a far worse scenario. Thank you to Craig and Jefferson, and the entire staff!

Craig handled a DUI where I had moved out state and had complications with interlock. He got a plan going and got the case closed. Communication could have been a bit faster at their end with a return phone call. The end result was good though as other attorneys wouldn't touch the case

Craig and his team from Rosenstein Law Group represented our son in a couple of cases, DUI and criminal charges, for almost two years. We had the most outstanding, professional representation and extremely knowledgeable lawyers possible, which exceeded our expectations! The first DUI got reduced to reckless driving and the other criminal cases got DISMISSED! The life of our son is finally back to normal, thanks to Rosenstein Law Group! They really care about their clients, about your well being and how everything is going, the follow up was outstanding, which helped us very much.
Thank you for all your help!
