Dedicated and successful advocate
Mary Pat Rosen’s commitment to justice began while she was earning her law degree at Western Michigan University, where she worked with the Michigan Department of Labor’s Commission for Handicapped Concerns and the Commission for the Blind. These positions highlighted the importance of a career dedicated to giving those in need a voice for change. These experiences also formed the basis of Mary Pat’s own career goal: to assist those harmed while championing change for the public good.
Mary Pat has a prevalent nurturing side combined with a strong analytical perspective. She champions her clients’ rights with civility and respect, even in the most adversarial of circumstances. Those traits, coupled with her drive to succeed for the right reasons, make her the successful and dedicated advocate she is.
Mary Pat grew up in Ypsilanti where the term “it takes a village” still holds true. Growing up in a small town, surrounded by the closeness of friends that she referred to as“family,” her surroundings instilled a strong work ethic that fostered her “can do” mentality. Having been a female athlete at the time Title IX was passed, she saw first-hand the differences that the law can have on people’s lives. Through these experiences and the never-ending support of her parents and siblings, she achieved much in her life that she did not think possible.
In her spare time, Mary Pat is an avid photographer, coaches boys’ track and field, and is an avid hiker.
