At Orsi Arone Rothenberg Turner, LLP, our attorneys share a common philosophy to provide the high-caliber services most expect from downtown law firms. We do not need a prestigious office address to prove our demonstrated trial success, commitment to our clients’ needs and experienced case management. Many of our attorneys have spent in excess of 20 years in private practice, and together we are committed to providing innovative, cost-effective and personalized legal services across a broad spectrum of practice areas to meet our clients’ needs.

Our Multifaceted Approach

As experienced lawyers, we know that rarely does a complex legal issue pertain to just one area of law. We understand the tax implications of various real estate decisions or issues in estate planning and elder law.

While lawyers on our legal team each focus in select areas of law such as business law, real estate, taxation or elder law, they work together when legal matters encompass several areas of law. As a result, our clients receive the benefit of comprehensive representation that draws on in-depth knowledge in specific areas of law.

Our multidisciplinary approach has helped our firm achieve a history of favorable results. Our clients can turn to us not just for assistance with one legal matter, but for continued assistance with the matters that affect their lives and their businesses. We have served some of our clients throughout their lives and careers, helping them make the right legal decisions that protect their interests and prepare them for a strong and high-performing future.

Lawyers Who Value Communication

Our firm believes that effective communication between lawyer and client is fundamental to successful representation. We seek to ensure our clients feel comfortable and assured about our legal knowledge and skills, our awareness of their unique needs and our readiness to listen to them, thereby earning the trust to solve their legal problems.
