Hope Rosen grew up in New York and first moved to Virginia for her undergraduate education at the College of William and Mary. After college, Hope decided to make her life in Virginia and obtained her law degree from the George Mason School of Law.
Hope has been practicing law in Virginia for fourteen years and she has centered her practice on family issues for her entire legal career. She worked for the American Prosecutor’s Research Institute immediately upon her graduation from law school, where she provided training and support for prosecutors across the country in the areas of juvenile delinquency and child abuse. Thereafter, Hope was appointed as Special Counsel for the Office of the Virginia Attorney General, litigating all aspects of child support cases for several jurisdictions in Northern Virginia.
Hope joined ShounBach in 2007, and spent nine years broadening her family law experience to include a wide variety of family law issues such as child custody, visitation, spousal support, prenuptial agreements, protective orders and divorce. Hope has also represented clients in complex family law matters that included issues such as division of complicated marital estates, valuation of privately held businesses, and tracing of separate contributions to acquisition of marital assets.
Hope recently returned to ShounBach and she continues to be a strong advocate for her clients both inside the courtroom and out. She understands that clients need a firm and focused attorney to protect their financial interests as well as the best interests of their children. Hope earns the trust of her clients and their families as she helps them navigate to a resolution of their cases through litigation, mediation, or collaborative divorce, depending on what each individual case requires.
