Criminal Defense: White-Collar

Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld has outstanding lawyers in every respect. Over the years it has been a privilege to work with Sandy Rosen, Michael Bien, Gay Grunfeld, and Jeff Bornstein. Most of my work, especially in the last 10 years, has been with Mr. Bornstein who is a superb attorney.

Civil Rights Law

I have known most of the partners of Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld for years. One is my former Berkeley Law student. The firm has deep expertise in civil rights litigation and fee matters. They are astute and highly skilled litigators whose interest in fundamental fairness guides their work. The firm has a long-standing pro-bono culture, which I value.

Criminal Defense: White-Collar

Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld is an excellent firm. Jeff Bornstein is a particular star with regard to White Collar and complex corporate investigations and parallel proceedings.

Civil Rights Law

I was advised to work with Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld for a complex Employment and Civil Rights Law case by experts I highly respect. I was well advised. RBGG took the time to deconstruct detailed subtle case facts that often strayed into arcane financial areas, and expertly distilled the information to the essential legal arguments. Partners Mr. Van Swearingen and Mr. Sanford Jay Rosen, with Associate Hugo Cabrera, were methodical, meticulous, and deft in intricate dealings with state and federal agencies, associate special counsels, and inspector generals that were associated with my case involving violations of equal employment opportunity and whistleblower laws, with subsequent employer retaliation. Partners Mr. Swearingen and Mr. Rosen were tremendous advocates for me, exceptionally analytical and astute, remarkably diligent and responsive. A client could not have better legal representation in Civil Rights Law in my judgment. Expensive but worth it.

Criminal Defense: White-Collar

Jeff Bornstein of Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld is incredibly smart and experienced in all aspects of white-collar. He brings creativity and passion to all of his representations and is always client focused.

Criminal Defense: White-Collar

My rating of Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld is based on my familiarity with Jeff Bornstein in the San Francisco Office. Jeff is a dedicated practitioner committed to obtaining the best results for his clients. He is able to adeptly parse through thorny issues and develop pragmatic strategies. He builds solid relationships with his co-counsel and works collaboratively in those situations as well.

Commercial Litigation

This Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld law firm is simply amazing, one of a kind! They shepherded me through some five years of litigation with smarts and care, never losing the personal touch; it was a journey where I really felt all the many lawyers of this law firm were related to me, were on top of the facts of the many cases with which I had to contend, almost any time of the week and day. They also were flexible with my company and myself around payments, working with me on the stress of legal expenses and cashflow. I cannot speak highly enough of the astounding culture of competence and of maintaining the all-important human touch throughout litigation that Rosen, Bien, Galvan and Grunfeld have created, excellent in all ways!

Appellate Practice

Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld attorneys are consummate professionals , who are incredibly bright and have the best in class appellate practice. They displayed exceptional skill in writing persuasive briefs and in oral argument. This firm successfully represented us as appellants in both the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals and the California State Supreme Court on unrelated matters. I provided 4 stars on cost-effectiveness because their rates are high, but they work efficiently, and we achieved a great ROI given the excellent results.

Employment Law - Individuals

I worked with Gay C. Grunfeld from Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld due to her well known expertise in Employment Law. She was amazingly helpful and went above and beyond my expectations. Not only was her legal advice priceless, but also she is an amazingly kind person, as well. Her responsiveness and accessibility went well beyond my typical legal council interactions. We discussed legal topics at my request often at various hours of the day and she usually made time for me on the weekends. I look forward to interacting with her on all my future employment matters.

Mauricio Simbeck U.S. Hispanic Ventures

Civil Rights Law

I cannot give any higher praise than what I am giving for Ernest Galvan, Aaron Fischer, and their team at Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld. They are the epitome of professionalism. Their intelligence and experience were immediately evident as they quickly and effectively steered our case against a large children's hospital. RBG&G never wavered in their determination to secure the services that our daughter requires and is afforded under ADA. I cannot imagine a better and more caring group of advocates and friends. RBG&G came to our rescue.
