Review on The Rose Law Firm

The Rose Law Firm Review

  • Rose Law Firm, the oldest law firm west of the Mississippi River, traces its origin to November 1, 1820, before Arkansas statehood, when Robert Crittenden and Chester Ashley agreed to a “Partnership in the Practice of Law.”
  • Their mission is to create long-term value for our clients by providing innovative, personalized legal solutions delivered through our commitment to excellence.
  • At 22, Crittenden was appointed as Lieutenant Governor of the Arkansas Territory by President James Monroe, and he was responsible for organizing the new Territory. In contrast, Ashley was joined in the practice of law by George Watkins in 1837. In 1844, Ashley was elected to the United States Senate and served as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
  • “Rose” was added to the partnership name in recognition of the addition of U.M. Rose. The latter was a student of history, science, philosophy, and literature, as well as an accomplished lawyer and linguist.
  • As one of the founders of the American Bar Association, U.M. Rose was elected its president in 1900. President Theodore Roosevelt appointed Rose the United States representative to the Second Hague Peace Conference in 1902.
  • As one of the founders of the American Bar Association, U.M. Rose was elected its president in 1900. President Theodore Roosevelt appointed Rose the United States representative to the Second Hague Peace Conference in 1902.
  • U.M. Rose’s son, George B. Rose, joined the partnership in 1881 and brought to it his photographic memory, command of six foreign languages, and passion for art.
  • During its second century, Rose Law Firm continued to add lawyers of extraordinary intelligence, integrity and ingenuity, such as Dedrick Cantrell (1905-1943), J. Fairfax Loughborough (1905-1945), Archie F. House (1925-1969), Harry E. Meek (1932-1969), George Rose Smith (1933-1948) and two Rhodes Scholars, William N. Nash (1931-1980) and J. Gaston Williamson (1949-1989).
  • Then we get to see that although the firm’s name has changed a number of times since 1820, the firm has retained the “Rose” in its name since 1865. In 1980, the firm changed its name for the last time to “Rose Law Firm, a Professional Association.”
  • Six of the firm’s former members served on the Arkansas Supreme Court, three as Chief Justice. It remains the only firm in Arkansas with as many as six members honoured to serve as President of the Arkansas Bar Association. We also get the idea that the firm’s former members include a past President of the Little Rock School Board, a past Arkansas State Representative, and the past president of the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws.

From our research, we get the idea that Rose Law Firm strives to create a work environment that is welcoming and inclusive. The firm understands that diverse life experiences are essential to a positive workplace and strengthen the ability to meet the client’s needs.

  • Being a very abrupt firm in Arkansas, Rose Law Firm has a long tradition of promoting women in the legal profession.
  • They are further committed to recruiting, hiring and developing people of diverse backgrounds.

Some of their unique features that really piqued our interest was.

  • They sponsor and participate in events promoting diversity outside the Firm with clients, law school programs, bar associations and minority organizations.
  • Ensuring diverse populations have access to quality legal services via the Firm’s pro bono program and support of the Center for Arkansas Legal Services and Legal Aid, non-profit organizations providing low-cost or no-cost legal assistance.
  • Supporting community involvement among attorneys in an effort to support our diverse community.
  • They are providing scholarships to diverse students attending law school in Arkansas.
  • Signing on to the NWA Council’s Leadership Pledge to address systemic racism.
  • They are also members of the Law Firm Anti-Racism Alliance, which partners with legal services organizations to identify and dismantle structural or systemic racism in the law.
