VALDOSTA — “It's not for the weak,” Attorney David Rose said of government contract law.
One of Rose's recent cases has grown to more than 5,000 pages. He said he has read every page of the case.
Moreover, every page gets read by at least two people in his office, Rose said.
He said his diligence has led to a 72 percent success rate while the national success rate is 25 percent.
Rose's diligence also allows him to be selective with cases, he said.
“They (clients) may have a completely valid reason (for protest), but is it actionable? So we save people a lot of money by not working with them,” Rose said.
By reading the entire case beforehand, Rose knows whether he has a good chance of winning.
He primarily works in protest cases on government contracts. A client files a protest case when another bidder wins a government contract and the client believes the case lost the bid on a technicality.
The firm has outgrown its office on Patterson Street this year.
Rose Consulting Law Firm has its own home at 106 West North Street now.
The firm primarily handles federal government contracts, protests, claims, construction law, business law and personal injury..
Rose Consulting has 4 other offices nation-wide but carries two attorneys, Dave Rose and Tripp Castleberry in its Valdosta location.
Castleberry handles numerous personal injury cases.
“We also handle DUI cases,” Rose said.
Rose said the DUI and injury cases bring some variety into his work routine.
The firm has clients in all 50 states as well as the Middle East and other locations internationally.
Rose himself was born overseas in Okinawa.
“I like to joke, ‘Like every good American product, I was born in Japan,'” Rose said.
Rose's father was in the military. His family moved to the United States when he was about 9 or 10 when his father served as a medical doctor in the Vietnam War.
David Rose joined the military in 1983.
“I started in the Army, then went into the Navy, then went into the Air Force,” Rose said.
Rose has been in the military 35 years. He was on active duty for 12 years with explosive-ordinance disposal, the “bomb squad.”
Rose said he was supposed to retire from the Air Force in 2016 but his papers didn't go through.
Rose was given a wall decoration mistakenly listing his years from 1983-2016. He kept it.
“The internet's been a game-changer,” Rose said. “It allowed me to move (from his Atlanta office) to Valdosta to be closer to Mom.”
Rose's mom lives in Valdosta.
