ILP alum Rob Rosette (’96) in ASU Now

“I envisioned a law firm that would only focus on federal Indian law, meaning we wouldn’t represent banks or development companies or casino interests or oil companies,” he said. “Just practice Indian law, purely on the tribal side as a tribal member from Rocky Boy. That was my original ambition and what I always wanted to do.” Robert Rosette (’96) was featured in ASU Now’s article “Rosette law firm founder thankful for family environment he found at ASU.” Read article here.
