Irving H. Rosen
Irving (Irv) H. Rosen, Esq., was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and practiced law for more than 57 years. He was a graduate of the University of Cincinnati (B.A., 1954) and the University of Cincinnati College of Law (J.D., 1957).
He was one of the firm’s founding partners and served as counsel to Aronoff, Rosen & Hunt by lending expertise in the areas of business law, tax law and real estate law. He focused his practice on small corporations of annual sales of $20 million or less and real estate clients. Thanks to Mr. Rosen, the firm has been counsel to The Drees Company for several generations.
Irv held an AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Eta Sigma and Phi Delta Phi. He performed volunteer legal work at Temple Sholom for the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
He was admitted to practice in Ohio and Kentucky, U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit and U.S. District Court, Southern District of Ohio; U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana, U.S. Tax Court and U.S. Claims Court. Irv was a member of the Cincinnati, Ohio, Kentucky and American Bar Associations, the American Judicature Society and Lawyer’s Club.
He was the lawyer’s lawyer. His way of practicing law in a professional, kind way has carried forward here, and we’re the law firm we are today in large part due to Irv Rosen.
Every day I walk into this office, and I look on the wall at Irv Rosen’s portrait. I think of Irv and how he taught me how to practice law, and I tell him “thank you” every morning for that. I think I practice a little bit better, and I try to help my clients a little bit more, always thinking about what Irv did for me.

Mr. Rosen was a one-of-a-kind type of gentleman. His character of kindness, generosity and wit can never be matched. I am concerned that in today’s world this is something we won’t see again when his generation has passed on.
I have been a receptionist at Aronoff, Rosen & Hunt going on 25 years. I talk and meet a lot of people. He has been one of my favorites. He always had a smile and a little piece of humor to share. He had the heart of charity, always focused on helping others. Those who had the pleasure of knowing him knew they were blessed.

I remember the day I came in to interview for a job as a receptionist. Don Lerner interviewed me first and then said I had to meet with his partner, Irv Rosen. I almost got up and left because I was terrified. He was so kind and put me at ease right away. That was July 1970!
Irv was a good friend for more than half my life. He gave me good advice (which I didn’t always heed), and had one of the best senses of humor I ever knew. Working for him and with him was a real honor. Everyone loved Irv!
