Jordan R. Rose


Jordan Rose started Rose Law Group pc leasing space for just herself in another lawyer’s storage room and has, in seventeen years, grown the firm to the largest woman-owned Law Firm in Arizona history. 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.”

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 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.
