Longtime Member Tim Boe Dies at 71


It is with great sorrow that Rose Law Firm announces the passing of longtime member Tim Boe on July 2, 2020, at the age of 71. He celebrated his 40th anniversary with the firm this past April.

“We are all so deeply saddened at the loss of our great friend and colleague. Tim was truly one of a kind. He will be remembered for his zealous and passionate advocacy for his clients, his loyalty, humility, charm and quick wit, and his gentle, personal touch with all whom he came to know,” said managing member Robyn Allmendinger. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Susan, and daughters, Elaine Ruth and Vivian. It was exceedingly clear to everyone that knew him that his wife and his girls were his ultimate joy.”

Tim held law degrees from the University of Arkansas and Southern Methodist University. He joined Rose Law Firm in 1980 practicing labor and employment law. He spent much of the final decades of his practice focused on an area of the law he particularly enjoyed – workplace health and safety law. He built the firm’s national practice in that area and was one of the most distinguished OSHA law practitioners in the country.

“Tim Boe was not only an amazing lawyer, mentor and friend, but also a uniquely compassionate and caring person who saw dignity in everyone,” said Brian Rosenthal, member and immediate past president of the Arkansas Bar Association. “His legacy is one of humility, integrity, dedication and kindness.”

He was a vigorous advocate on behalf of our clients, and a firm believer in alternative means of resolving disputes. He served 17 years as a Commissioner for the Arkansas Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission.

Tim is survived by wife, Susan; two daughters, Elaine Ruth and Vivian Emilia; brother, Michael Boe (Anita); and nephew, Timothy Boe. He delighted knowing his daughters would have each other’s friendship for life because he shared the same bond with his brother.
