COVID-19 UPDATE: The Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen remains open to help clients in personal injury, real estate, foreclosure defense, and consumer protection matters. We are working remotely and can be reached by phone, email, chat, contact form, and video conference. Click here for the latest updates on how COVID-19 is impacting the law.
Serving clients in personal injury, real estate, foreclosure defense, and consumer protection is our passion. It’s often the last thing we think about before going to sleep, and it propels us out of bed (sometimes in the middle of the night). It gives us the opportunity to serve others in a meaningful way, and we are very grateful for that.
The lawyers and staff at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen firmly believe that you need to love what you do to be great at it. As the United States Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story famously wrote, “the law is a jealous mistress.” This is especially true for those of us who devote our lives to this profession and to constantly striving to be the best lawyers we can be. We hold ourselves to the highest possible standards. We never stop trying to grow and improve. And we follow the golden rule. We aim to treat our clients the way we would want to be treated. This includes treating our clients’ cases as if they were our own. Whenever faced with a difficult decision in a personal injury case, real estate transaction, or foreclosure defense matter, we ask ourselves, what would we do if this were our case? After that, the best course of action is almost always immediately determined. The amount of effort, energy, and time required to best serve our clients is never a factor in our decision-making process.
Evan was very fortunate to grow up in a family of personal injury lawyers and real estate professionals. When other young kids were bored at family meals, Evan relished listening to his elders. He learned so much from their experiences and, importantly, their focus on service.
As Evan got older, he never understood the bad lawyer jokes. The lawyers he knew and grew up around did not say or do anything to warrant being the butt of all the jokes. Starting at an early age, Evan learned from lawyers who focused on service and helping clients through challenges—helping them improve their lives and seek justice. Only on very rare occasions, as an anecdote to some story, was there any mention of money. The focus was always on service and being the best professional they could be.
The personal injury, real estate, foreclosure defense, and consumer protection lawyers of the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen share that same focus for service, and desire to be the very best lawyers their clients can have.
For decades, our Hollywood Florida personal injury, real estate, foreclosure defense, and consumer protection lawyers have been on a never-ending quest to be the very best lawyers we can be. We are regularly reading new books and attending seminars and workshops to constantly try to improve, personally and professionally. We are actively engaged in email listservs with some of the brightest legal minds in the country. This adds wisdom and experience to our own extensive track record of decades of service to the South Florida community.
Thankfully, we win almost all of our cases and help our clients achieve their goals. But there are cases that don’t go the way we expected. (No lawyer wins every case.) Thankfully, this is rare. And when it happens, we use those experiences to review every aspect of the case and the way we handled it. We adjust, grow, and improve. We relish the wins and helping our clients achieve their goals, but the fear of losing is extremely motivating too.
In personal injury, we help people with automobile and motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, cruise ship injuries, injuries caused by animals, medical malpractice, intentional torts, wrongful death, products liability, and injuries sustained in a nursing home, assisted living, or adult family care facilities.
In real estate, we serve clients in every aspect of the process of buying, selling and refinancing real estate. This covers help with the listing agreement, contract, title insurance, and all closing services.
We also help people defend against foreclosure and achieve their goals in those matters. Those goals can include a dismissal or judgment in a client’s favor, short sale, deed-in-lieu, principal reduction, short payoff, short reinstatement, deferment, forbearance, or loan modification.
And lastly, we help serve clients in consumer protection matters under a number of different state and federal statutes like the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act, Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act.
Each client’s goals are unique and serving you and helping you achieve your goals will be a driving force behind the decisions our firm makes while serving you. Ultimately, an attorney/client relationship is service-based. As we understand it, our role is to serve you. We also have an obligation to counsel you, so you can make informed decisions during the representation. The client is the principal in the relationship. Your goals, as the client, are paramount. And we never forget that.
We have helped clients in Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Miami, Palm-Beach and all areas of South Florida obtain justice for their personal injuries, buy, sell, and refinance real estate, defend against foreclosure, and seek protection from unlawful anti-consumer practices.
Since 1997, Evan M. Rosen has relied on his passion for service to help others. He has even taught other lawyers around the state, in several sold-out workshops, the law and art of handling trials. He is a perfectionist. This applies to the service he provides and the quality of work he expects from his team. Evan has recruited and trained extremely competent and caring lawyers and support staff. For more information about Evan and the firm, including what some judges have said, please click here. You can also Google “Evan M. Rosen” to read the many online reviews written by other people. Those people, and many others, have received help from Evan and the lawyers and staff at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen, P.A.
Evan’s passion for service includes his instinct to stand up to bullies. This first surfaced in grade school when Evan stood up for another kid being bullied on the school bus. Something just drove him to stand up and say something. The same is now true when it comes to fighting large corporations, insurance companies, and financial institutions. It’s likely part of his heritage and religious upbring, but part of it is just apparently in Evan’s DNA. When a client is being bullied in a personal injury, real estate, foreclosure defense, or consumer protection matter, that only tends to pull Evan up out of his chair to dig in, and work and fight harder. When it comes to being an attorney, this character trait is an asset for the clients we serve.Personal Injury
As a young boy, Evan knew he had a passion for serving others in personal injury cases. Evan’s father, Ronald Rosen, is an accomplished personal injury attorney and retired judge, who started practicing law in 1965. His father regularly discussed the trials and tribulations of his days at work around the dinner table. And Evan was fascinated with every detail. Evan was also blessed to have numerous other mentors, in and out of the family, that served individuals in personal injury cases.
So while Evan’s legal career began in 1997, his training about the nuances of serving people and helping them obtain justice for their injuries began as a young boy.
Evan started his legal career in Hollywood Florida, helping people with personal injury matters. In 1999, he delivered the closing argument in a slip and fall case against Wal-Mart. The jury returned a verdict of over $1,300,000. It was the seventh largest verdict in Broward County that year.
Since then, Evan has resolved personal injury cases throughout the state through both settlement and trial. He and his team at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen help clients with auto and motorcycle accidents, slip/trip and fall cases, cruise ship injuries, injuries caused by animals, medical malpractice, intentional torts, wrongful death, products liability, and injuries sustained in a nursing home, assisted living, or adult family care facilities.
If the numbers are right, it is best to settle a case so a client can get the money they need faster, without a long trial or appeal. Evan loves negotiating and every facet of the chess match that can evolve through that process. At an early age, Evan’s love for negotiations helped him accumulate a massive baseball card collection. In team debate in high school, he travelled the country prevailing in several national tournaments. Parts of that process taught him numerous tricks and tips for public speaking, persuasive argument, and negotiations. And in law school, the dean of the school taught the course on negotiations. Evan loved that too. The saying “there is no substitute for experience,” is especially true in negotiations.
Evan has successfully negotiated thousands of cases. He has developed a system, checklist, and spreadsheet that he uses to maximize the odds of success. Information is the lifeblood of negotiations. Whoever controls the information best, increases their odds of success in the ultimate outcome. Evan breaks down information into three categories, “give, guard, and get.” There is information he “gives” to help the cause, information he “guards” that can hurt a client’s bargaining strength, and then there is information you need to “get.” With that, Evan seeks to find “hot buttons”—tidbits of information about the other side’s motivations/concerns that he can use as negotiating “leverage.” Evan has learned skills and tactics like these and many more from mentors, teachers, books, and seminars. He loves handling negotiations for his clients and has a wealth of experience helping clients get the maximum results through settlement. (Evan views his father, a trial lawyer since 1965, as a master of this process. And Evan has learned a ton from him and will still, on occasion, consult with his father about some new wrinkle or angle in a negotiation.)
Importantly, if negotiations break down, Evan has extensive trial experience and enjoys serving clients seek and obtain justice in court. There is a reason there are so many courtroom drama TV shows and movies. Trial can be very emotional and dramatic. Evan loves putting together a thoughtful, persuasive, and truthful presentation that empowers the jury to grant justice, for the full amount that justice requires. As Evan has told juries: “Partial justice includes partial injustice. And that won’t do. We are here to do justice, full justice, in this one opportunity to right this wrong. And you, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, have that power.”
Thankfully, in the great majority of our cases, the juries have responded well and have done the right thing—entering verdicts that fully compensate our clients. When needed, we’ll gladly go to trial to seek and obtain justice.
Ultimately, the decision to accept a settlement is a client’s call, not ours. But like every other aspect of our representation, we will do all we can to counsel our clients and help them make an informed decision. We also do all we can to get the highest possible offer on the table.
If you or someone you know needs a dedicated lawyer to help with a slip and fall, auto or motorcycle accident, cruise ship injury, injury caused by an animal, medical malpractice, intentional tort, wrongful death, products liability, or injuries sustained in a nursing home, assisted living, or adult family care facility, please contact us and let the lawyers and staff and the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen serve you!Real Estate
The Hollywood real estate attorneys and lawyers at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen also help people buy, sell, and refinance real estate in all cities and counties in South Florida. Evan grew up around many successful real estate investors and developers. All his grandparents and great-grandparents owned investment properties. And while other kids were bored listening to the adults “talk shop,” Evan was always leaned in at the table—listening to the adults share their experiences.
With that background, and with many years of personal experience in real estate as well, Evan and the lawyers and staff at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen can help you in all aspects of a real estate transaction—from the first contract you enter into with a Realtor to your successful closing of the transaction. Like everything we do, we aim to treat every client as we would want to be treated, and this includes handling every transaction as if it was our own.
Our real estate services include:
For too many people, the great American Dream of home ownership has become an American nightmare. Millions of families lost their homes and their life savings during the “Great Recession.” And just as that seemed to finally be behind us, COVID-19 hit—changing life and real estate in profound ways.
In the beginning of the 2008 mortgage foreclosure crisis, many cases languished for years, while “foreclosure delayers” took advantage of homeowners, charging to do little, if any, work. Those “delayers” are still out there but, due to a few reasons, cases can now move from start to finish in a matter of months. The foreclosure defense attorneys at our Hollywood law firm are not “foreclosure delayers.” We fight to serve our clients facing foreclosure. We hold banks and financial institutions accountable, forcing them to abide by the rule of law just like everyone else.
Not only will we aggressively defend you with our extensive knowledge and experience, but we will also treat you with the respect and dignity you deserve. Our foreclosure defense lawyers are eager to serve you and help you achieve your goals, whether you want to keep your home with an affordable loan modification, walk away without owing any money, fight the foreclosure and win, or pursue any other approach.
A well-defended foreclosure has many benefits including the ability to continue to live in your home during the fight. Throughout the foreclosure process, we will help develop your case and elicit valuable facts that can result in the bank settling with great terms. Banks have one goal, make as much money as possible. With us defending your foreclosure case, the costs for the bank often increase significantly. So, it is not surprising that many of our cases result in a fair settlement, allowing the majority of our clients to achieve a successful outcome.
Centrally located in Hollywood, Florida, the experienced foreclosure defense lawyers at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen have a well-earned reputation for being aggressive, thorough, experienced, and extremely competent litigators. We have helped many clients obtain loan modifications with lower interest rates and lower monthly payments. We’ve negotiated short sales and consent judgments with waivers of deficiency so you can walk away from the foreclosure case without having to worry that some bank may try to collect a money judgment against you. We have also helped clients with short payoffs, reinstatement plans, deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure, and several other creative solutions.
If you do nothing, a bank can obtain a foreclosure judgment quickly. Within a few weeks of that judgment being entered, a sheriff could show up at your door commanding you to vacate in twenty-four hours. If you don’t, the sheriff will return the following day and forcibly remove you and all your personal property off the premises.
Doing nothing is a choice, but it is the absolute worst choice you can make. It essentially guarantees the worst possible result. But with competent representation, the odds change immediately. You will at least have a fighting chance. And understandably, the better the lawyer, the better your odds should be. Don’t make the mistake of doing nothing.
Law firms that represent banks typically get paid fees based on how quickly they move a case from filing to title transfer. Bank lawyers can quickly process hundreds of “uncontested” cases—cases where the borrower does not have a lawyer. But well-defended cases change the paradigm significantly. If you got paid by how quickly you processed cases and could process hundreds of cases quickly or spend your time fighting an aggressive, competent attorney that eats up a large portion of your time, what would you do?
In many of the cases we handle, just our presence generates immediate settlement talks. Our cases are also often taken off the assembly line and moved to a different department at the bank law firm, or to a different firm altogether. This tends to get someone on the other side who has a direct line to a decision maker at the bank, and it generally increases the odds of a resolution. It helps cut the red tape. And, as with any other heavily contested litigation, it takes time. While we are ethically prohibited from taking steps calculated to delay, we are also ethically obligated to be your zealous advocate. And dedicated, zealous advocacy takes time.
The foreclosure defense attorneys at our Hollywood firm are devoted to serving our clients and will aggressively defend you while you remain in your home. We also handle cases in Fort Lauderdale and throughout South Florida, including all cities in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach counties. As to our foreclosure defense attorneys’ fees, we typically offer monthly flat fee payment plans which are less than the cost to rent a home in any remotely decent area in South Florida. Don’t delay. Call now and let the lawyers and staff at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen, P.A. Serve You!Consumer Protection
Large corporations, merchants, and debt collectors regularly violate any number of consumer protection statutes. These include the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act, Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act. For many years, we have served clients, and protected them from illegal acts under those statues and more. Standing up for consumers against the rich and powerful is a significant part of who we are.
If you or someone you know needs help in a personal injury, real estate, foreclosure defense, or consumer protection matter, contact us today. Let the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen serve you!
"You obviously know the area of the law very well. You were courteous to opposing counsel, the witnesses and the court. That is well appreciated. One of the things that I don't think a lot of attorneys who do foreclosure practice, see all the judges have lunch together and we know who has given other judges a hard time. And your reputations many times well precede attorneys, and that be either good or bad. Let me tell you, Mr. Rosen, your reputation in front of me is top notch. You did a great job. Appreciate it because what you do is very hard. Sometime when this is all over I would love to sit down and understand." - The Court
"I don't know if you know this or not, but you've got an extraordinary attorney. You really do, who has come incredibly well-prepared, and raised a lot of strong issues on your behalf". - The Court
