TIMOTHY J. ROSE
The founder of Rose & Associates, PLLC, Timothy (Tim) Rose, founded the firm for one reason: to redefine the legal experience for his clients. Mr. Rose handles all types of family law cases including those involving children. Mr. Rose became a single dad in 2008 and had to seek his own legal counsel to protect his rights as a parent. He learned quickly how stressful and costly litigation can be. His steadfast belief that everyone should have a right to have meaningful roles in their children’s lives and everyone should preserve their rights in divorce led him to start Rose & Associates with a focus on family law.
Mr. Rose grew up in Northern California and relocated to Arizona in 2001. He graduated from Arizona State University and received a scholarship to attend law school at Arizona Summit (formerly Phoenix School of Law). While in law school, Mr. Rose worked for prestigious law firms with practice areas including intellectual property, criminal defense, and personal injury. Mr. Rose wanted to help the under-served and devoted a large amount of time working in the community with the Family Lawyers Assistance Project (FLAP) and Maricopa County Community Legal Services assisting with providing consultations in family law matters and participating as a “friend of the court” assisting debtors with bankruptcies in federal court.
Prior to graduation, Mr. Rose accepted a position in a general practice law firm in downtown Phoenix. Shortly after jointing the firm, Mr. Rose built the foundation for a successful family law practice and began to focus primarily in the areas of child custody and divorce. His background both as a Phoenix family law attorney and dad gives him the insight to give his clients advice that is meaningful both inside and outside the courtroom. When Mr. Rose advises his clients, he routinely takes off his “lawyer” hat and gives them advise not only as an attorney but as a dad.
“When the case involves children, I tell every client during the initial intake that the goal at the conclusion of the case is for the client to place the parenting plan on the top shelf of their closet and never have to look at it again”.
Mr. Rose always prefers reasonableness over litigation, and in a perfect world all cases would settle outside of court. No one wants a court dividing their pots and pans or making decisions about their parenting time with their children. When expert testimony is required, Mr. Rose will utilize experts he has develop relationships with in the legal community. As a result of his professionalism, reasonableness, and thoroughness at trial, Mr. Rose has received the appreciation from his clients by referring Rose & Associates to their friends and family and Mr. Rose routinely receives referrals from colleagues in the valley.
Mr. Rose found his clients had additional needs after the firm’s representation in family court was over. To serve his clients he has expanded the firm’s practice areas to include guardianships and conservatorships, juvenile dependency and bankruptcy with a continued focus on domestic relations.
