Meet Our Family Law Attorney
Alan W. Rosenak, MA, JD has practiced family law since 1986, when he started his career as an associate with J. Bradley Short & Associates. After spending 12 years as a partner with McAulay, Heyl, Kincaid and Rosenak, Alan was ready to strike out on his own and build the practice his clients have come to know and rely on.
Alan works closely with clients to identify their needs and interests in order to develop a unique approach to solving their family law matters. Alan works with each client to explore options, make informed choices and help build a bridge from problems to solutions.
Born in Decatur, Illinois, Alan graduated from O'Fallon High School as an Illinois Presidential Scholar and served as Student Council President. After obtaining a Masters Degree, he went on to attend Washburn School of Law, where he received his Juris Doctor with Dean's Honors. During his time there, he also served as an Associate Editor of the Law Review while working as a Legal Clerk for the Kansas Supreme Court.
While Alan's primary focus today is operating Rosenak Family Law, he spends much of his free time giving back to the community. He works as a Guardian Ad Litem for children throughout the state and serves on the Johnson County Bar Juvenile Bench Committee, as well as the Guardian Ad Litem Advisory Committee to the District Court. Over the years, he has also served as a Board Member of Marillac, a Regional Children's Psychiatric Hospital, as well as boards for both adult and juvenile corrections. He is soccer referee and mentor to hundreds of young soccer referees.
In addition to his advisory board work, Alan provides local leadership for foster and adoptive parents. Working with State Legislators in 2006, he initiated a new adoption bill containing grandparent rights that passed both Houses unanimously. Each year, he works with various parties to advocate legislative changes beneficial to neglected or abused children.
Clients today are seeking solutions beyond litigation to resolve their legal disputes. These alternative processes — such as negotiation, mediation or the collaborative divorce method — emotionally protect children in the face of divorce, offer a greater sense of client control, and provide creative, cost-effective solutions. For over 35 years, family lawyer Alan Rosenak has utilized negotiation, mediation, and collaborative law skills to help his clients reach productive win-win solutions. As a firm believer in these more compassionate and effective methods, he is a member of both the Heartland Mediators Association, American Academy of Family Mediators, The International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and Board Member/Member of Collaborative Divorce Professionals of Kansas City.
