“RLP is a boutique law firm. I am honored to work with three excellent lawyers (one of whom just graduated with honors in December of 2020)—Gavin Reardon, Kate Stalker and our newest addition, Samantha Dudley—and an unmatched support staff of Melanie Landacre, Beth Bare and Will Landacre. Together, we’ve used our creativity, experience, and hard work to solve clients’ problems and make our clients’ lives better. And that’s led to more clients with more tough problems we get to solve.”
Amiel J. Rossabi, Partner
Amiel was born and raised on the West Side of Manhattan, New York City, where he attended City public schools, including high school at the Bronx High School of Science. During high school and college, Amiel had various jobs, including as a vendor (selling popcorn, soda, pretzels and ice cream) at Madison Square Garden and driving a yellow cab.
In 1980, Amiel was recruited to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for fencing and soccer. He played soccer for only one year and fenced for all 4 years. Amiel was undefeated conference champion for three years, was a member of the three-man team that finished 3d in the NCAA’s, and won a Silver Team medal at the 1983 National Sports Festival in Colorado Springs.
Amiel then went to law school at St. John’s University in New York. Besides playing a bunch of basketball at Alumni Gym (and stripping pre-NBA Mark Jackson), Amiel was Chief Justice of the Moot Court Board. As Chief Justice, Amiel had the privilege of editing writings for legendary civil procedure guru David D. Siegel (now deceased).
Amiel’s first job as a lawyer was at Botein Hays & Sklar, then one of the oldest NYC law firms. He started out doing corporate work and soon thereafter focused on litigation, working on varied matters. As an associate attorney at Botein Hays, Amiel worked on almost entirely civil litigation. His cases ranged from suits against the Metropolitan Museum of Art on behalf of the government of Turkey to suits by large high rise condominiums against developers to defense of RICO matters.
In 1989, as a new father, Amiel decided that he wanted to see his daughter more each day, as well as get more actual trial experience than is available in a big city. In January 1990, he began working in Greensboro for Adams Kleemeier Hagan Hannah & Fouts (now known as Nexsen Pruett), becoming a partner in 1994. Amiel learned a great deal from his friends and colleagues during his 10 years at Adams Kleemeier, and tried just about every sort of civil (and criminal) case imaginable. In 2000, he formed a new, small, law firm with his friends, Stuart Albright and Keith Black. During his tenure at what ultimately came to be known as Rossabi Black Slaughter, Amiel successfully represented hundreds of clients, and tried scores of cases. Through it all, Amiel developed a well-earned reputation for being a smart, aggressive, and effective advocate and litigator. In large part because of Amiel’s successes, Rossabi Black Slaughter grew to be a mid-sized, multi-location, general-practice law firm.
Rossabi Law Partners is the culmination of where Amiel wants to be after almost 30 years of practicing law in courts around the country. Amiel formed RLP in 2016 with the vision of a small, multi-faceted firm that can do just about everything to help individuals and businesses solve problems and make the most of opportunities. Every day, the attorneys and staff of RLP strive to make that vision a reality.
