Courtroom heart attacks don’t just belong on TV dramas
Just ask retired divorce attorney Lee Rosen – the founder of Rosen Law Firm. At the tender(ish) age of 37, this spritely, ambitious family lawyer ended up having a quintuple bypass… alongside one helluva wakeup call about his future. This wakeup call had nothing to do with stress levels or fast food consumption, mind you. Instead, it was about the kind of lawyer he wanted to be from that point on.
You see, for the first time in his life, Lee had experienced the true terror of feeling uninformed and vulnerable. He knew little about heart disease and struggled to get answers to his questions (this being a pre-internet world), and he felt exposed, out of the loop, and scared.
His experience made him think of all the people who end up doing poorly out of divorce settlements and custody battles because they lack the information or knowledge to help themselves. These people say: “The lawyers went into a room and came out, telling me I’d better take the deal – but I don’t know why, or if I should.” They feel vulnerable and alone, just like Lee felt when he went through heart surgery.
No one should have to feel like that.
Lemons –> lemonade
So Lee decided to double down on a project he’d started a few years earlier: this website. You see, it doesn’t just advertise our services or tell you how great we are; it’s also a huge repository of information to help educate people about family law. It demystifies the divorce process, sharing the secrets and information that other lawyers normally try to keep hidden.
Today, this website contains a vast assortment of webinars, legal forms, statutes, Q&As with lawyers, audio and video courses, articles, and lots more. It allows us to reach beyond our immediate world to those who can’t work with us directly, and we’re delighted to see how many people it continues to help.
Moving the mission worldwide
Lee has now retired from Rosen Law, but no: he hasn’t joined a golf club or started going to bed at 5 p.m. He’s decided to travel the world in order to help new lawyers grow their own respective businesses so that they, in turn, can help others as he’s done.
And he still comes back regularly to check up on us and make sure we’re doing everything we can to educate, advise and help as many people as we can.
