About Rosalind

Practice areas

I  take  a  highly personalized approach to the practice of law. I was drawn to the areas of Elder Law and Estate Planning through a combination of personal experience, passion and a particular aptitude for these areas of the law. My paternal grandmother spent seven years in a nursing home. She was healthy as can be but suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease. My maternal grandmother, on the other hand, was sound physically and mentally, but then broke her hip and had to enter a nursing home. I was extremely close to both of my grandmothers, and saw first-hand how difficult it can be to choose the appropriate care environment. I also experienced the emotional toll this process can take on the family. I received my BA in Political Science and Public Administration from Blackburn College in Carlinville, Illinois. I earned my Juris Doctor from Saint Louis University School of Law in St. Louis, Missouri. I am an active volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Association. When not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my beloved dog, running and watching Cardinal's baseball.

She is the perfect choice for Elder Law
I chose Rosalind as my elderly sister's attorney for making choices for Medicaid and Veteran's benefits. After a consoltation with her, we decided she was the right choice for making choices that we would need. As my sister's POA, I was afraid I would make wrong choices for her and Rosalind assured me that they would be there to help any time they were needed. She was right; she has been there with answers to any questions we have. She has always responded quickly and does not let it go until she is sure we have the answers or information we need. I am very pleased with her work and I recommend her very highly whenever we are asked about her and her team. I have recently recommended her Glenhaven Gardens director, Wendy and to my daughter-in-law for her mother. I will continue to use Rosalind's service for myself and husband as we do not have a will at this time and I now realize how important this is. Rosalind has a very outgoing and gentle personality that says she is more than just a person's attorney. She is a very caring individual that will go out of her way to make a person feel that she cares about the outcome of their life and I greatly appreciate all that she has done.

Wonderful experience!
She asked questions that I had not thought would be important regarding Medicaid, insurance, and veterans benefits that would help in obtaining those objectives. She has always responded quickly to any questions I have had about my situation. She is always friendly and helpful. I know if I need anything, she will call me promptly or will mail me the informaiton. I truly like working with her and trust her with all my information.
