Rosemary RizkClients’ ChoiceAward 2019

Rosemary Rizk helped me navigate my case and encouraged me every step along the way. My custody case was very complicated and not in my favor due to me not being a biological parent, and because of her guidance I received full custody, much more than I asked for. She’s amazing.

Rosie was fantastic – so easy to get a hold of and excellent knowledge base to lead me down the right path. She was reassuring and a firm negotiator. Very impressed with her professionalism and excellent reputation in the community.

Rosie was very thorough and helped me navigate the divorce process. She’s organized, and she made sure I considered every angle before making decisions. As nice as she is, she was able to be a bulldog when it was required.

I spoke with three separate attorneys before choosing Rosie. I could not have made a better decision. She was a serious professional, yet extremely personable from day one. I was going through an extremely difficult time in my life and Rosie was able to show compassion, but knew that things needed to start happening on the business side to protect my interests.

She is extremely organized and detail oriented. I was kept in the loop with everything throughout the entire process. When she was working on my case, she always gave 100% of her attention to me without being distracted by her other cases, though I’m sure she had a heavy workload.

Rosie did not create false hope or expectations in my mind, but gave me realistic ideas of what to expect as we worked through the process. To be extremely honest, the final outcome was more than either of us expected and I sincerely felt bad for the opposing side!

At the end of the day, this was money well spent and I’ve had zero regrets. On that topic, you may be thinking, “I can’t afford to do something like this.” My response to that would be…You can’t afford NOT to!

Thank you for everything Rosie! You are an excellent attorney and a great person!


Rosie is truly a lawyer that represents not only her clients to the fullest extent, but every single aspect of a case. Always communicating, very open and honest with my case, and fought “tooth and nail” to make sure I received almost everything I was entitled to in my divorce.
