Michael J. Rosen

Michael J. Rosen has long been considered one of South Florida's foremost criminal defense trial attorneys.

Mr. Rosen has practiced law for almost 40 years, specializing in federal and international criminal trials, with an emphasis on white- collar investigations and trials.

He has spent his career challenging allegations of fraud (tax, wire, mail, banking, securities, bankruptcy, and healthcare), as well as money laundering and racketeering.

With the increased number of prosecutions for violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and child pornography, Mr. Rosen's practice has expanded into these areas.

Mr. Rosen graduated from the University of Miami School of Law in 1974. His federal trial experience began immediately while serving as an Assistant Federal Public Defender in South Florida.

Mr. Rosen joined his father, E. David Rosen, in private practice for 25 years. Together with his brother, Larry, the Rosen law firm was engaged in some of the most important and high profile criminal cases and trials in South Florida.

Today, his son, Jason E. Rosen has joined the firm, bringing ten years of banking and securities experience.

Michael Rosen has also been an adjunct professor for many years at the University of Miami School of Law, teaching courses in Advanced Federal Criminal Procedure and RICO.

He has also been a featured speaker at international, judicial, and criminal law conferences.

Mr. Rosen places great emphasis on corporate internal review and compliance programs designed as preventative measures, enabling his corporate clients to stay current and compliant with ever- changing business legislation, as well as resolving an on-going corporate criminal inquiry at an early stage.

Being ready, willing and able to try a federal criminal case leads to two results:

  • 1. Presenting the client with the best possible trial defense OR
  • 2. Successful pre-trial resolution

  • Understanding that trials are costly, time-consuming and anxiety- inducing. "If you really work a case hard in advance of trial, you will put the government in a position where they will either dismiss the charges or make your client an extremely good offer. Short of that , you go to trial and win."
