The team at Rose Law Firm provides the knowledge, skill, and breadth of a larger firm with the full care, attention, and competitive pricing that comes with a smaller practice. Our senior attorneys have, on average, 25+ years of experience, with most attorneys having practiced at big firms for many years. This experience allows us to strategize and execute deals and litigation efficiently, saving our clients money and maximizing value. In addition to our core team, we have developed an extensive network of contracted independent lawyers with whom we work closely. These attorneys are typically highly experienced in their areas and can complement Rose Law Firm’s team when appropriate.

  Differences Between Firm Attorneys and Contracted Independent Lawyers.:

Rose Law Firm, P.C. provides legal services through both employed and contracted independent lawyers.  Attorneys who are identified as “Principals,” “Associates,” or “Of Counsel” are considered members of the law firm or “Firm Attorneys”.  All the Firm Attorneys maintain a common and centralized conflict-of-interest checking system to avoid conflicts of interest.

Rose Law Firm also maintains active and regular collaborative relationships with a network of contracted independent lawyers and law firms in various state jurisdictions around the United States.  Any lawyer who is identified on our website as a “Contracted Independent lawyer” works at a law firm that is separate and independent from Rose Law Firm and is associated, from time to time, to assist and be associated with discrete client engagements.

As contemplated by Rules of Professional Conduct 5.5, Rose Law Firm may associate with these contracted independent lawyers on a matter-by-matter basis.  At the beginning of each matter when we associate with a contracted independent lawyer, Rose Law Firm undertakes to verify that the contracted independent lawyer does not have an ethical conflict of interest that would prevent the contracted independent lawyer from working with Rose Law Firm in representing the firm’s client on that matter.  Because contracted independent lawyers only associate with Rose Law Firm on specific and discrete matters, Rose Law Firm does not maintain a centralized conflict-of-interest checking system with the Independent lawyers.
