Renowned Houston-area attorney Steven Rocket Rosen dies after battle with ALS

Steven Rocket Rosen, a former Fort Bend County prosecutor and Richmond defense attorney who for years represented clients in high-profile cases, died Tuesday after a two-year battle with ALS.

“We lost a great man today in Rocket Rosen,” the Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office said on Twitter. “A formidable attorney and former Fort Bend County prosecutor, Rocket battled his ALS diagnosis with dignity, spending the last few years speaking to honor, character, resilience, and positivity. Rocket, it was our honor to know you.”

Rosen graduated in 1980 from South Texas College of Law. As a criminal defense attorney, he’s represented clients at trial and on appeal in state and federal courts.

He’s most known for representing two Branch Davidians who were charged with killing two federal agents during the 1993 standoff at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas. His clients were originally charged with first-degree murder, but he was able to get the charged reduced to manslaughter, according to his firm’s website.
