Steven Rosenfeld joined Cooper Levenson in April 1999, bringing with him nearly three decades of prosecutorial experience in Essex and Atlantic Counties.
During his distinguished career, Steven served as Chief Trial Attorney for New Jersey's largest prosecutor's office and as Chief Assistant and First Assistant Prosecutor of Atlantic County.
He has litigated over 300 civil and criminal cases in seven New Jersey counties against some of the state's best attorneys, and has an 85% success rate. He has handled some of the most complicated and weighty criminal matters, including four capital murders, political corruption and police misconduct. His successful high-profile prosecutions include one of Atlantic County's first death penalty convictions—the Angelo D'Amato murder case, featured in an HBO special, "Autopsy II," Inside Detective Magazine, and in Jonathan Van Meter's critically acclaimed 2003 book, "The Last Good Time: Skinny D'Amato, His Notorious 500 Club and the Rise & Fall of Atlantic City."
Steve now concentrates his practice in criminal defense, including felonies and municipal court, resisting arrest, assault and other charges. His statewide reputation makes him particularly equipped to negotiate the best solutions for his clients, but he stands ready to utilize that courtroom experience to the full benefit of those who must have their day in court.
He has served as chairperson and lecturer for the Institute for Continuing Legal Education Criminal Law Program for newly admitted lawyers.
A graduate of Rutgers University (B.A. 1962), and Rutgers University School of Law - Newark (J.D., 1965), and was admitted to practice in New Jersey in 1966. He is a current member of the Atlantic County and Camden County Bar Associations.
