Rosalind M. Robertson

Managing Counsel

Rosalind takes a highly personalized approach to the practice of elder law. Like Stephen, she was drawn to the areas of Elder Law and Estate Planning through a combination of personal experience, passion and a particular aptitude for the areas of law. Rosalind’s paternal grandmother spent seven years in a nursing home. She was physically healthy as can be, but suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease.

"I understand the pain of loving someone with Alzheimer’s Disease. I remember the heart break of walking into my grandmother’s room and her not recognizing me. On a good day, she would believe I was my cousin Judy. Even greater pain came from watching my father cope with the fact that we was gradually losing his mother."

On the other hand, Rosalind’s maternal grandmother was sound both physically and mentally, but when she fell and broke her hip she had to enter a nursing home for rehab. She never fully recovered from the fall. Sadly, both grandmother’s passed within 3 months of each other Rosalind’s senior year of college. Experiencing the devastating effects of long term care with her family, lead her to a path in her career to work with families to help them plan for what we call the "second half of life".

When not in the office, Rosalind enjoys spending time with her family and watching Cardinal’s baseball.
