Careers

We at Rose Law Firm are proud of the firm’s 190-year heritage. This pride and commitment to excellence make Rose Law Firm a uniquely rewarding place to work and practice law.

Rose Law Firm attorneys and staff are dedicated to the client, committed to excellence, and constantly striving for the highest ethical standards. We are otherwise a diverse group, with varying political viewpoints and personal backgrounds.

Collegiality and mutual respect among the attorneys and staff at Rose Law Firm are hallmarks of the firm’s culture. While our practice is often fast-paced and always intellectually challenging, time for family and life outside the office are important attributes of the firm’s practice.

Equal Opportunity Employment

Rose Law Firm is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We recruit, hire, train, and promote into all job levels the most qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, marital status, national origin, or disability. Employment-related decisions are based on the individual’s qualifications as they relate to the particular job opportunity and to the furtherance of equal employment opportunity.

Associate Development

Rose Law Firm associates are among the most talented and motivated of their law school classes. Many held editorial positions on their law school’s law review. Others joined the firm after judicial clerkships. We expect and strive to see that every associate hired will mature professionally to full membership in the firm. To that end, the firm designed and implemented an Associate Development Program. Each associate is assigned a member attorney as his or her mentor. The mentor monitors the associate’s practice and professional development. The associate receives periodic written critiques focusing on the associate’s strong points and areas for improvement. Concrete plans to remedy problems and achieve professional development are jointly agreed on and implemented by the mentor and associate. Associate isolation, stagnation, and the “sink or swim” mentality are not tolerated as just “part of the practice” at Rose Law Firm. Associate position applicants should contact our recruiting coordinator, Amanda Wofford.

Summer Associate Program

Rose Law Firm’s summer associate program offers law students the opportunity to experience the practice of law in challenging and enjoyable six- or twelve-week sessions. Our summer associates rotate through both the business and litigation sections and work with attorneys in all of the firm’s practice areas. Summer associates do more than research. As appropriate opportunities arise, summer associates are exposed to all facets of the firm’s practice, from client conferences and transaction closings to depositions and trials. Each summer associate is assigned an attorney mentor who serves as a guide and ombudsman. Social events allow the summer associate and firm attorneys to get to know one another outside the office environment. Rose Law Firm’s summer associate program gives the student a taste of the practice of law and, more importantly, the setting to forge lasting friendships and associations.
