Lee Rosen

Lee RosenLee Rosen may be a distant cousin of William Shatner, alias Captain Kirk, but his pilot’s license only applies to airplanes that travel in the earth’s galaxy. Despite the fact that he has the “flattest feet on the planet” (according to his podiatrist), Lee enjoys slightly dangerous activities such as whitewater canoeing, scuba diving, and running a triathlon. These are especially dangerous for him since he has no balance and cannot roller skate, ice skate, or ski to save his life.

Of course, could anything be more frightening than speaking to professional and local civic groups about “How to Stay Happily Married“? Perhaps writing articles about divorce or lecturing for continuing legal education programs would qualify, especially since the lectures have been for such prestigious organizations as the American Bar Association, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, the National Business Institute, University of North Carolina School of Law, Wake Forest University School of Law, Campbell University School of Law, Idaho State Bar, Nebraska Bar Association, The Missouri Bar and the North Carolina Bar Foundation. He also once worked as a hotel desk clerk and as Santa Claus. Surely, those jobs qualify as scariest of all.

Lee began his legal career in 1987 and is the founder of the Rosen Law Firm. As Rosen’s Chief Executive Officer, Lee oversees strategic planning, staff development and fiscal management. Never idle, he has served as a Council member of the North Carolina Bar Association Family Law Section and Chairperson of the Law Practice Management Section, as chairperson of several committees of the American Bar Association, and as editor of Family Forum, a publication of the North Carolina Bar Association. As if that weren’t enough, he spent more than a decade as a member of the editorial board of the Family Advocate, the largest circulation family law publication in the U.S., and he was a legal advisor to the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, which included working on the Model Code on Domestic Violence.

Lee is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Asheville and received his J.D. degree from Wake Forest University School of Law. When he isn’t busy attending to his clients, writing articles, lecturing, flying, scuba diving, or canoeing, he eats lots of stewed collard greens, which he proclaims to be “the greatest food ever invented”. Lee spends a great deal of time traveling now that his children are older. He’s been to some scary places, but nothing in his travels compares to the time he spent chaperoning his kids on three-day overnight field trips with their school friends. Now, THAT was scary!
