Orsi Arone Rothenberg Turner, LLP.

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.

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.
