John Rosecrans is the managing partner of Encompass Law Group, PLLC and the firm’s chief litigator particularly in the area of family law. John grew up in a large family being one of seven children, so he understands families and the dynamics of the varying relationships within them. When selecting an area of law to practice, John wanted a field that offered more than merely cold, hard, numbers. So, he established his own law firm focusing on family law, thus allowing John to combine his strongest suits – he can provide strong and effective advocacy with high-level financial analyses for his clients, while his warmth and generosity allow him to connect with each client on a more personal level. John’s own cooperative divorce has given him genuine empathy for his clients, and he has carefully selected extraordinary staff who are dedicated to helping each client, step by step, through the emotional process of divorce.
John is an avid Cougar fan having attended Washington State University for undergraduate studies and then went on to graduate from Seattle University School of Law. Prior to going to law school, John worked in higher education with all University department heads and finance managers in approving all faculty contracts and managing an $8 million annual budget.
John currently resides in Shoreline with his wife and four children. Having a passion for culture and language, John is studying Spanish and French. He also enjoys music, theatre, cooking, tennis, and running. He completed his first ever half marathon and hopes to complete a full one in the near future.
