Rosie understands. She has been on the client side of litigation and vowed that she would provide what mattered most in representation: accessibility, empathy, affordability, and resourcefulness.
Accessibility - There is no point of having a competent and experienced attorney for a legal issue if you are unable to reach him or her. Rosie is always available by phone or email and she personally responds to your concerns within 24 hours.
Empathy - Your attorney should treat your case as though it were his or her own. Rosie personally understands the emotional roller coaster involved with family law matters and the pain of caring for a loved one who was injured because of another’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions. She will guide you through this difficult time while providing you competent legal representation.
Affordability - Your decision to be heard should not depend entirely on the cost of representation. Too often, people decide against being represented because of the belief that representation is too expensive and thus not worthwhile. Rosie works with your budget to develop an affordable payment plan so that you do not have to choose between life’s necessities and your right to be heard. Additionally, Rosie offers free or low-cost consultations.
Resourcefulness - At times, litigation is not the best route to the resolution of your problem. As a Polk County native, Rosie has a large network of professionals in a variety of industries, ready and willing to be a resource to those in need when such situations arise.
