Jordan Rose started Rose Law Group pc leasing space for just herself in another lawyer’s storage room and has, in twenty-one years, grown the firm to the largest woman-owned Law Firm in Arizona history. In July of 2021, ‘The Phoenix Business Journal” noted Jordan as a “Heavy Hitter” amongst the “20 names to know in Real Estate”. In July of 2019 Jordan was recognized by ‘The Business Journals’ as one of the top 100 national Influencers in law – amongst just three from Arizona. In the same month, she was featured on the cover of ‘Trends’ magazine in an article entitled “The Legal Ease of Jordan Rose” the author writes, “she feels she can outwork anybody and she likes to win”. Jordan’s passion is adding value to her client’s business propositions—her goal being “to make my clients more money.” The Phoenix Business Journal once asked Jordan what she enjoys most about the practice of law, and she responded, “the ability to help people solve their problems.”
Recently in a challenging case where Jordan represented the NBA Phoenix Suns in an agreement to remodel the Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix City Councilman Sal DicCiccio, said “[she’s] done an amazing job, I’m just amazed at what [she’s] been able to pull together here.” In May of 2021, when her client, the PHX Rising, took the field for their first game at their new stadium at Gila River Indian Community, team Co-Owner, Tim Riester, in front of thousands of cheering soccer fans, thanked Jordan for “creating this opportunity for us to have a negotiation …Thank you Jordan, we appreciate you.”
In a profile by the Arizona Capitol Times, then Arizona Corporation Commission Chairman, Gary Pierce, was asked about Jordan and responded “Nowadays, you turn around and say, ‘Oh Jordan’s doing that, and that, too. Jordan’s Firm is representing that group and that group.’ And she got there because she works hard. She’s unafraid to do what it takes to ethically advocate the positions she’s been hired to take.” Of her ability to come up with creative solutions to complex problems, Arizona Supreme Court justice, Clint Bolick, says “It’s very instinctive for her, and that’s unique. It’s not something they teach you in law school.” In 2016 Governor Doug Ducey appointed Jordan to serve as the only private industry member of the State Groundwater Committee charged with developing water policy for the State. In December 2014, Governor Elect Doug Ducey named Jordan to serve, along with Michael Bidwill, Don Brandt, Jim Click and Angela Ducey, as a Co-Chair for the Inauguration Committee. In addition, he appointed her to the Ducey Transition Committee as a subcommittee member for Economic Development, Entrepreneurship, and International Trade. In 2018, the Phoenix Business Journal inducted Jordan into their first class of Business leaders who had previously received their prestigious 40 Under 40 Award to the “Hall of Fame.” You may also see Jordan on CNN, as she has served as a legal analyst on high profile criminal trials such as Jodi Arias and standing up for Trayvon Martin.
