About Reno Attorney, Sean Rose

Nevada Heritage
Sean P. Rose is a 5th generation Nevadan. His maternal ancestors, the Hammersmiths & Steels, settled in the Reno/Sparks area in the 1850’s. His paternal ancestors, the Bordas, were Basque sheepherders and settled in the Minden/Gardnerville, Nevada area in the 1870’s.

Because of his families’ long history in the area, Mr. Rose has contacts with many prominent, local professionals. Consequently, he is able to obtain their assistance on his cases to the benefit of his clients.

Married to his college sweetheart with whom he has two children, Rose enjoys spending his spare time with his family, traveling and participating in various sporting activities. On most summer weekends, the Rose family can be found at one of the many lakes around the Reno/Sparks area boating, wakeboarding, water skiing or camping. In the winter months, Rose and his family spend many days skiing at their favorite local resort, Mt. Rose.

Work Experience
During his law school years, Rose worked almost full time for a pre-eminent plaintiff’s personal injury firm in San Francisco, California. It was during this job that he developed a love for this area of the law, as he found it extremely rewarding to utilize his legal skills to help people who had been seriously injured or lost a loved one.

After graduating from law school, Rose went to work for a large firm that practiced in all areas of the law, including plaintiff’s litigation. After working for the firm for about two years, the firm dissolved and Rose joined with three other attorneys to form a new firm – Lyle, Murphy, Whitehead & Rose, Ltd.

Because Rose wanted to focus his attention on plaintiff’s personal injury, medical malpractice and insurance bad faith, he left the firm in 1998 and opened his own office, The Rose Law Office, where he has remained ever since.
