At two recent foreclosure law seminars, attended by hundreds of lawyers and a dozen or so judges, two judges publicly singled out Evan, praising him as an “excellent trial advocate” and a “wonderful lawyer.”  To read more about what some judges have said about Evan, click hereherehere and here. To read Evan’s cross examination of a bank witness in a recent foreclosure trial, click here.

Before Evan began his law career, his passion for the law and for fighting for those seeking and deserving justice was firmly cemented in his heart. As a teenager in high school, Evan was not only drawn to the competitive nature of wrestling, but he also engaged his early sense for honing compelling, heartfelt arguments by competing in team debate. He and his team debate partner traveled around the country, winning several national tournaments, including the prestigious Emory University Tournament.

At every stage of Evan’s education, he received numerous accolades and awards. After graduating Pine Crest High School in 1990, Evan went on to attend the University of Miami on an academic Scholarship. He was recognized for having the highest-grade point average in his fraternity pledge class and was frequently on the Dean’s List and Provost List for academic achievement. In 1994, Evan graduated with “General Honors” and was recognized for helping form the first collegiate electronic Bulletin Board System called Young Entrepreneur’s Symposium. The system linked college students from around the country together online before the internet as we know it today was created.

While in law school, Evan maintained a high-grade point average and held several jobs in order to hone his practical experience. This early experience paid off. As a young attorney, it did not take long for Evan to dive head first in to a high-profile jury trial. He prepared and delivered the closing argument that helped obtain a $1,300,000 verdict for a woman who fell at Wal-Mart. Since that trial, Evan has handled cases against almost every major financial institution, creditor, insurance company, and retailer in America. He has spent countless hours in the courtroom, trying cases, arguing motions, and studying the psychology and art of jury selection with renowned jury consultants. He has been a part of several multi-million dollar and numerous six figure results.

In foreclosure defense, Evan has been able to help clients with short sales, principal reductions, deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure, cash for keys, and dismissals. He and his legal team have won numerous trials and appeals utilizing a comprehensive, ethical and aggressive approach based on their experience and expertise. No two cases are the exact same but Evan and his team has won cases based many different kinds of procedural and substantive issues. Evan has a well-earned reputation as an accomplished litigator. Sometimes, just his appearance in a cases results in the other side making an offer to settle.

If all attempts to resolve a case fail, or if a client just wants their day in court, Evan and his team do all that is possible to win – treating each case as if it was their own. Combining hundreds of foreclosure trials as well as numerous jury trials, with all the years of dedication, training and mentorship, Evan is, as two judges recently said at two large public events, an “excellent trial advocate” and a “wonderful lawyer.” Many other judges have made similar comments.

In a desire to help as many homeowners as possible, Evan has also conducted two-day trial workshops around the state designed to help other foreclosure defense lawyers be the best trial lawyers they can be. Day one is a seminar going over the nuances of the evidence code, trial procedure and all the various ways Evan has won foreclosure trials. Day two is mock trials, allowing lawyers to practice some of the skills and techniques Evan outlines on day one. In martial arts, in order to become a black belt, you have to teach others. Trial practice is very similar. Teaching so many other lawyers the nuances of trial practice has greatly helped Evan hone his skill.

As part of his ongoing diligence and passion for representing clients, Evan is actively engaged with lawyers from around the country in seminars, e-mail list serves and discussion groups to improve legal argument, theory and technique. He is president of a select group of South Florida foreclosure defense attorneys and is an active member of JEDTI (Jurists Engaged in Defense of Title Integrity), a highly selective group of statewide Florida foreclosure defense lawyers. Combining these efforts, his talent, expertise and background with the rest of the firm’s experienced team has helped numerous clients get back on track.

In addition to defending clients from foreclosure, Evan enjoys helping people fight improper debt collection. He has studied numerous state and federal consumer protection statues and uses those to serve his clients. Evan and his team have sued many different debt collectors and creditors for a wide range of violations.

Evan is also very passionate about serving the community at large. He has volunteered as Secretary and Treasurer of the Miami Project for Paralysis, laborer for Habitat for Humanity, and organizer for the Florida Brain Tumor Association. Evan was also very committed to the Greg Wohrle Foundation, a non-profit organization which helped served people fighting brain cancer. His newest volunteer efforts are in the courtroom as a volunteer with Broward’s Legal Aid Society, helping those who cannot afford a lawyer to fight their foreclosure. Evan has also assisted in the Southern District pro-se bankruptcy clinic, which helps those who cannot afford a lawyer obtain information on bankruptcy. Evan is a member of the American Bar Association, Florida Bar Association, Broward County Justice Association, American Association for Justice, Florida Justice Association, and was a board member of the Broward Hurricane Club.  He is also a devoted father and husband.

Evan M. Rosen has worked to best serve clients in foreclosure defense and consumer protection. He is a firm believer in treating clients the way he would want to be treated. This includes treating clients cases as if they were his own. Whenever faced with a difficult decision while representing a client, Evan and the other members of the team always ask themselves, what would they do if they were the client? After that, the best course of action is often quickly determined. The amount of effort, energy, or time required is never a factor in our decision-making process. We do whatever it takes to best serve our clients.

It is with this philosophy, that Evan and his staff are here to serve you.

★★★★★
Mr. Rosen was recommended to us by our friends and we highly recommend him for his excellent service. He represented us in the matter of foreclosure defense. His comprehensive and detailed knowledge of Florida law, federal law, and ongoing relevant cases was key to building a robust and winning strategy for our case. He presented us with several options and the risks associated with each, but ultimately, we picked the one that worked best for us. Mr. Rosen and his legal team are highly professional and always easily approachable via phone or e-mail. Once again, highly recommended. Jadwiga M.
★★★★★
In a few words, Evan Rosen saved my house. He got a final judgment in my favor. The judge gave the bank many opportunities (continuance of the trial even a mistrial) to solve all the issues that Evan Rosen will bring up to the judge (issues that were wrong with my case). In the end, his arguments could not be overlooked by the judge and Evan won the judgment in favor of the defendant (me) and an involuntary dismissal of the case. If you want to have the best chances to win your foreclosure case, you need Evan Rosen on your side. He is the Super Lawyer. I have seen him flying out of the courthouse. Oscar D.

He is an attorney that you can be sure will fight the fight for you. I know nowadays it's hard to find an attorney that you can trust, but know this, you will not regret the day you choose him.
