One of the best - can't recommend highly enough
One of the best. I considered her an extension of our leadership team given the value of her legal counsel and her firm grasp on the fundamentals of our business overall. Extraordinarily client-focused and responsive.

Attorney like no other!!
I had the opportunity to work with Rose for over 15 years in her capacity as General Counsel. She provided expertise on everything from employee manuals and policy development to contract development and startup support. Rose is very thorough in her research and partners that with her creative/critical thinking skills. She provides solutions that are both supported by evidence and practical in nature. Rose is an attorney like no other because she consistently gives 100%+ to all of her clients and is truly a treasure to work with! I highly recommend her.

Top Notch Attorney!
Rose set up my LLC and never tired of answering my questions. She researched angles of the business I never would have thought of! Rose worked on our Employee Manual, and made it relevant and precise. She also advised on job descriptions, making sure necessary detail was included. Rose is accessible, can be counted on to provide prompt and thorough responses, and is a dream to work with! She has my highest recommendation.
