Hi my name is Veronica Tomor and I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mr. Rossi and his firm. If you’re seeking a top notch attorney that has ethics, compassion, integrity and has years’ of experience in his scope of practice, you’re in the right place. I have nothing but highest regard for this firm. Hardly any attorneys practice in this field and really care about their clients like they do. Highly recommend.


I feel safe thanks to this Attorneys office!! The assistants are on top of everything! Even though Steve Rossi is a criminal Attorney and Also has school cases all over the state of Florida on a daily basis. He helped me out on my family case. Thanks to Attorney Steve Rossi he won our case!!! He is very very professional and courteous. He was easy to talk with and he understood automatically and knew exactly what to do. I am proud and I am blessed to have had him represent me. I would recommend him to anybody, having any kind of legal matter!!


I had trouble find someone who could help me get medically cleared from Florida to get a drivers license. I am now in North Carolina so I was never able to meet with them in the office but they were always quick to respond to my emails or phone calls. Ella was extremely helpful getting in touch with the review board! I couldn’t have done it alone atleast not in the time frame that it did happen! I haven’t had a car in 10years y’all don’t understand what this means to me! I’m very grateful Sincerely, Kaitlyn Barclay
