About me

I have extensive experience in helping clients through the maze of our legal system.  I was a caregiver to my elderly mother, I have two grown children, and have dealt with end of life issues for my family members. 

My life experience, on both sides of the desk, gives me the perspective needed when you are looking for a friendly ear.  I will always offer options to decisions, education to make informed decisions, and a commitment to answer all of your questions.

  • John C Demas

    Rose has always put her clients first with effective advocacy, and helping her clients to obtain a clear understanding of options in what is sometimes very muddy water. She is a breath of fresh air, and respected by her peers both in court and in the community. I recommend Rose highly.
