We are a team of people who are passionate about the law and making it work to our clients’ benefit. We represent people and companies who have complex and difficult problems, and face tremendous obstacles to getting their problem resolved. Our job is to do our best for them in court and in negotiation.

To be successful we need team members who share our passion, who have a wide range of skills, who thrive on the challenge of diverse and difficult legal challenges. The members of our firm may work with corporate executives in one matter, and civil rights plaintiffs in the next. We definitely are not narrow technical specialists – our lawyers thrive on personal responsibility because they believe in the cause they represent and have the freedom to represent it effectively.

Our lawyers and staff are smart, hardworking, and resourceful. Their work and educational experiences reflect those traits. All associates have client contact and litigation responsibility early in their careers with us, and partners work closely with each associate to provide supervision, support and guidance. Such support also includes a strong emphasis on training and professional education, both within and outside the firm.

The lawyers and staff who join Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld thrive on hard work and high expectations, but they also find us to be flexible about finding the right balance between life at work, and life outside of work.
