I retained The Rossi Law Firm for a DWI case, and they were very professional, very available for my needs, and extremely in tune with today's digital age in terms of contact, which I appreciated.

They also allowed me to make payments, as they are empathetic to the cost of these things.

Performance was great, I had a pretty run of the mill dwi, ie: not much legal wiggle room, but they were able to ensure I was defended as well as possible. And I was satisfied overall with the outcome

Michael Rossi and Nicholas Rossi handled my DWI case. They went over and beyond my expectations. They were sympathetic and non-judgemental through the entire process which made me feel really comfortable in a highly uncomfortable situation. They were always available to answer any questions or concerns I had,and kept me well informed via email and phone calls.I had researched a few lawyers before choosing The Rossi Law Firm and I know I made the right decision by choosing them. Highly Recommend!

We retained the Rossi Law Firm to help us close on a house we were selling. If you are looking for a Buffalo Real Estate Attorney then look no further than the Rossi family. Their reputation and knowledge of the local legal system saved our sale and are one of the main reasons that our dream home is becoming a reality. We had many unexpected legal issues arise that caused us more than a few sleepless nights. Michael, Michele and Nick kept us calm and guided the ship into port.

I needed good representation and quickly for a case and found the Rossi Law Firm online late at night. I called expecting to leave a message, but Mr. Rossi answered and we immediately set up a date to meet. They quickly starting working on my case and kept in contact with me each step of the process. The Rossi's worked hard and efficiently and yielded the best results for my case. They are extremely knowledgeable and experienced in their field. Mr. Rossi is a generous, compassionate man that will help anyone who comes to him. I would recommend him to everyone!

Mike was thorough and I felt comfortable that he would ensure my rights were secured and that I would achieve my main goal of sole custody of my child. Divorce takes an emotional toll on the people involved and I know that at times I did not want to deal with any of it. Mr.Rossi maintained my goal for me when times got tough. Nothing slips by him and I am thankful to have had him as my lawyer during that difficult time.

Mike Rossi has been my attorney for over 25 years and my "go to person" for my personal affairs, real estate transactions for my investment properties and home mortgage. I highly recommend and endorse Mike Rossi as a true professional who can provide you with not only legal council, but sincere concern for your peace of mind. This especially important when you need to understand how to navigate the legal challenges we all face throughout our life time.

My experience with Mike Rossi Esq. as a legal counselor and representative was very positive and gratifying. One day, I suddenly found myself embroiled in a legal action, a situation of which I had not anticipated nor had any prior experience with. With Mike’s over the top personal interest in my case and my well being together with his guidance based on sound legal precedent and experience, he strategically and systematically built a legal defense.

Mr. Rossi was very fair and upfront on his beliefs of what was going to take place and prepared us for court and was a great help in working with us and letting us know in advance of what paperwork and proof of statements that would be needed.

My wife and I used the Rossi firm when we were closing on our house. With the positive reputation the Rossi's have in our area, I felt extremely confident that I wouldn't be mislead. They delivered quickly and precisely. I will use them again and recommend to anyone who wants a small strong firm on their side.

I was referred to the Rossi Law Firm through a friend. I was able to receive an appointment meeting at my convenience. They were courteous, accommodating, professional, and helpful. I had a few issues that I needed guidance as to how to proceed. I was given appropriate advisement and immediate action had followed. My issues were resolved in no time! I highly recommend The Rossi Law Firm.

When our son was in need of a lawyer, we were lucky to find Mr Rossi. At an upsetting time, he was kind, respectful, informative and very efficient. Mr Rossi and his law firm are excellent at what they do and I would recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer. Our family appreciated his advice, expertise and professionalism.
