Successful outcome and excellent overall experience with attorney Joe Rosenbaum.
I encourage anyone seeking professional legal advice to consider hiring Mr. Rosenbaum. I hired Joe Rosenbaum as my attorney to help navigate a retaliation, FMLA violation and FLSA violation lawsuit. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Rosenbaum and his team were incredibly helpful, always available, and very straightforward. After our first consultation I felt very confident that I was hiring the right attorney for the job and that confidence persisted throughout the duration of my time as a client. I am incredibly grateful and appreciative of the effort I received from Mr. Rosenbaum and his team.

We Love Joseph T Rosenbaum
We love Joseph T Rosenbaum attorney. Joseph represented Us in traffic court. At the end of November 2022 I received the traffic citation. Joseph represented us through the whole traffic citation process. He is a great communicator he is very caring and a great listener. He is highly professional and he always has a game plan. We finally finished the case today April 3rd 2023. We won!! The case was dismissed with prejudice so that we cannot be tried for that same offense again ever. Thank you Joseph. You have our full trust and respect. You represented us with honor and professionalism Hugs Wes and Wanda Anzai Mililani Hawaii. April 3rd 2023

Felt like I was in good hands
Joe took the time to meet with me to gain an understanding of the situation I was faced with regarding my employer at the time. He took a good deal of time listening and asking all of the right questions. At that meeting, he made it a point to let me know whether this was something worth pursuing or not. And it was worth it. Joe has your interest at heart at all times and his honesty is refreshing. He is patient, responsive, extremely knowledgeable, straightforward and his mission is to make sure you are protected and that you feel protected. I would highly recommend Joe and his office as they fit the bill of everything I was needing at the time and they totally came through for me.

Knowledgeable, professional and excellent
I never had the need for an attorney, so when I got a charge-I contacted Joe after seeing how he helped my friend defend himself against daunting federal charges- and got him off—-I knew I had to call him. Good thing I did, the state was pressing us to take a plea but he believed in my innocence, and thankfully so, we did not accept a plea. The case was dismissed!! I’m forever indebted to his legal knowledge, availability and kindness. He didn’t treat me like a criminal and he proved I am not!!

Got the job done.
He was amazing thru our whole lawsuit, professional, understanding and very patient. Myself and another employee was wrongfully terminated and Joe got us what we deserved and more. The organisation that we worked for ended up settling outside of court with us. Thank you Joe for turning a horrible situation into a life enhancing one. You have truly change our life for the better.

Great Representation
Joseph was very quick to respond to any inquiry/concern and was extremely professional during all interactions. He even traveled to Lanai to be present for my hearing. I'd happily recommend him in the future. Our court case was also decided in my favor, which was a huge relief. Thank you Joe

Not old and pompous, fights for the underdog.
Mr. Rosenbaum has represented me multiple times. He’s now my lifetime lawyer. He took my case when multiple other lawyers told me no. He listened to me, heard my story, saw my evidence and knew we had a good case. When he said he would work for me on contingency it was a lifesaver. My case was a whistleblower case against my former employer and after a long and stressful battle, we prevailed, just as Mr. Rosenbaum thought we would all along. He tempered my nerves and anxiety all the way through and gave very practical advice in order to keep me from going off the rails. I’ll never forget him and the job he and his staff did for me. If you need a great lawyer that isn’t old and pompous and is very down to earth, don’t hesitate to contact Joseph Rosenbaum.

Most coherent lawyer Ever
I was expecting a lawyer giving me the typical gobbledygook that is on every single page of the legal journey for my whistleblower case. But he broke everything down and took the time to make sure I understood everything on all the documents. He was so relaxing about all issues that he seemed like a long time friend and fully recommended him if you feel nervous to talk to lawyers. We got the justice we deserved because his strong stance as David against the Goliath. Thank you Rosenbaum aka Bro-senbaum

We call him BROsenbaum...
Joseph Rosenbaum (we call him “BROsenbaum”) will be my “go-to” lawyer in this lifetime. It’s a crazy world out there, and it’s almost impossible to find an attorney with brains AND heart. A “David amongst Goliaths” — Joe was a man of integrity from day one of representing myself and my coworkers in an intense wrongful termination and whistleblower case with a former employer. He represents “the little guy” with swift, rock solid punches of justice! Definitely the kind of guy I can call up for legal counsel or to grab a beer! The absolute best in Honolulu.

Attorney Joseph Rosenbaum - Excellent Legal Advice
Attorney Rosenbaum exceeded my expectations. He was very responsive and always followed up with me after each phone call, text, or email message. He provided sound legal advice on a complex discrimination issue which we were able to settle. If you have any employment issues in the workplace, I would strongly recommend you contact Attorney Rosenbaum and his law firm. You will not be disappointed. A very professional Attorney!

Joseph Rosenbaum is legal wiz!
Mr. Rosenbaum represented me at trial at court. We won and I didn’t even have to get up to testify. I would highly recommend him if you need a very good attorney with a high level of integrity and honesty. I was very impressed with him. Amazing.

Excellent Civil Rights Attorney
Mr. Rosenbaum represented me twice and both times got me a great result. One case was an employment discrimination case and another was for an assault. He is hardworking and smart. The defendants didn’t stand a chance. He is very personable and easy to talk to.
