Rossana practices civil litigation and criminal defense in both federal and state court. Rossana’s extensive and varied litigation experience, negotiation skills, and trial tactics have resulted in a track record of exceptional outcomes over many years of practice. Rossana excels at organizing and leading trial teams comprised of lawyers, expert witnesses, investigators and paraprofessionals.

Rossana has experience litigating general business disputes, unlawful competition claims, tortious interference claims, employment disputes, civil rights claims, and a variety of individual and business tort claims. In addition to her civil litigation practice, Rossana has experience defending a broad range of criminal law matters, including healthcare fraud, bank fraud, insurance fraud, wire fraud, felonies involving violent crimes, sexual battery, child pornography, and misdemeanors.

Rossana has an active trial practice and has had multiple lengthy civil and criminal trials involving dozens of witnesses. In 2023, Rossana was one of the lead attorneys who successfully prosecuted a First Amendment retaliation claim against a sitting City of Miami Commissioner, helping the trial team win a $63.5 million judgment for the clients. Notably, during a short break in that seven-week First Amendment retaliation trial, Rossana tried a separate criminal case obtaining an acquittal for her client. In 2019, Rossana was one of the lead attorneys defending the then-largest healthcare fraud case in the nation in a trial that also lasted seven weeks. Rossana developed the theory of defense on the principal count of health care fraud conspiracy. The jury deadlocked, and so her client avoided a conviction on that count.

Rossana honed her trial skills as a Miami-Dade Assistant Public Defender. In that position, she tried a wide variety of cases ranging from first degree murder, burglary, and insurance fraud to driving under the influence. Rossana also successfully argued a Stand-Your-Ground Motion obtaining the dismissal of an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge. Additionally, Rossana successfully argued motions to suppress and for judgment of acquittal, as well as defended clients in pre-trial detention and alleged probation violation hearings.

Rossana served as a Law Clerk to U.S. District Judge Marcia G. Cooke and U.S. Magistrate Judge Edwin G. Torres in the Southern District of Florida. She has worked at boutique and large litigation firms. Rossana also taught legal research and writing for three years at the University of Miami School of Law.

Rossana is a Miami native and speaks fluent Spanish. She serves on the Board of Directors of the Friendship Circle of Miami.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
