About me

Justin Rosas is the founding lawyer at the Medford criminal defense law firm, The Law Office of Justin Rosas.

He takes pride in handling each case as if he was the one facing the criminal charges, or one of his loved ones was the defendant being accused. When an individual retains the representation of Attorney Rosas, he will utilize all his resources and knowledge to develop a strategy that is tailored to fit their situation and most likely to lead to favorable outcomes.

    Justin Rosas is a tireless advocate, outstanding trial attorney, and consummate professional. Justin is that rare attorney with both extensive trial experience and seemingly endless youthful energy; he is a seasoned attorney with a dynamic personality that draws you in. Justin is tirelessly devoted to client-centered advocacy and works his magic in the details that often escape attorneys with less dedication or experience. He has a rare intellectual curiosity that keeps him sharp and engaged. Justin is the first attorney I call for advice or to discuss legal issues both broad and narrow; he is well-read, always informed, and exceptionally articulate. Justin’s finest attributes are exemplified in his trial work and at hearings. I often attend his appearances and I am always impressed with the way he handles witnesses and presents his client’s narrative. I learn from Justin every time I watch him work. Simply put: you will not find a better advocate than Justin Rosas.
