About the firm
I am A-V rated attorney with a wide-ranging general civil  practice with litigation experience over the past eighteen years, a broad client base, and strong commitment to my clients and the law.  My law practice focuses on business and consumer law and litigation.    I have a heart--- I care about my clients deeply--- but, at the same time, I am a zealous and adamant advocate of my clients' legal positions in court and out of court, at trial and before trial during trial preparation.

Litigation can be costly and stressful and can carry a high emotional cost. The courthouse can be  unpredictable; indeed, the courthouse necessarily leaves decisions that are extremely important to you (and me) in the hands of people who are strangers to you: judges and their assistants, and juries selected from randomly-chosen members of the public.  Therefore, as part of my practice, I work hard for you with preventive legal counseling and straightforward, comprehensive problem-solving.

I am committed to the highest ethical and professional standards and the pursuit of excellence in my law practice.  My law practice is geared to the needs and interests of my clients.  The mission of my law practice is to deliver effectively and efficiently the legal skill, experience and resources ordinarily associated with large law firms, while maintaining the quality and accessibility of a small firm. The key to providing effective legal services promptly and at minimal cost is understanding each client's business, issues and goals.  Maintaining open and responsive communications with each and every client is a cornerstone of my practice.  I return every telephone call and e-mail as promptly as possible.  "Every client deserves my utmost concern, my unwavering commitment to his situation, and my dedication to quality legal representation for his legal needs and goals."

Mr. Rosenthal is from Fort Worth , Texas and received his undergraduate degree from Williams College in 1973 and his legal education at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville where he was Managing Editor of the law review.  He served as a judicial clerk for U.S. District Judge Nauman Scott (W.D. La) in 1987-1989.  Mr. Rosenthal is licensed to practice in Texas , Oklahoma and Arkansas .

On a Personal "Note" Minimize

Norton is the proud father of two young children who both are prodigious violin players.  Norton has been known to introduce himself light-heartedly at meetings and other conferences as the father of his children-- in case anyone in the audience in 10 or 15 years hears the grown-up children performing at some concert hall, he or she can say “You know, I think, many, many years ago I once met this violinist’s father at a meeting or conference.”

My practice serves Dallas County, Collin County, Tarrant County and Denton County, which includes the cities of Dallas, Plano, Richardson, Frisco, Sherman, McKinney, Fort Worth and Arlington.   My office is located in downtown Dallas, near the Dallas Courthouses; my home is located halfway between the Dallas Courthouse and the Collin County Courthouse.
