Rose Donaldson

Temple, Texas Paralegal

Rose Donaldson joined Blanchard & Thomas at the Temple office in 2017. She has more than a decade of paralegal experience and work in similar backgrounds. Today, she plays an integral role in the management of both criminal and family law cases our law firm accepts.

Born in Victoria, Texas but growing up in the small town of Moody to the north, Rose feels a deep connection to Texas and fellow Texans alike. After graduating from Moody High School, she attended McLennan Community College (MCC), where she earned an Associate’s Degree in Applied Sciences. She also graduated with high honors from the MCC Paralegal Program in 2006 and found work as a paralegal in 2007 with McDonald, Moody, and McKethan.

After that firm disbanded, she continued to work with one of the firm’s partners until he retired in 2010. This prompted Rose to further explore her interests in other areas of the law. She became a licensed private investigator and has handled many criminal investigations in that capacity. She also became a certified process server, worked as both a bondsman’s assistant, and acted as an independent private process server in Bell County.

It is her many years of experience in the legal profession working in different roles that have made her such an invaluable asset to the B&T team. There are few situations in criminal or family law that she has not experienced and managed for a client.

Rose now resides in Temple, Texas. She is the proud mother of three beautiful children: Dillon, Cydney, and Bryce. She has spent many years acting as a team mom, coach, and being the most supportive fan possible to her children and their friends. She is already thinking about exploring new hobbies and making new adventures when her nest eventually empties. Most of all, she looks forward many more years in the legal field helping clients find successful resolutions to their legal dilemma.

The Blanchard & Thomas
“Clients’ Bill of Rights”

We want to earn the right to be your attorneys from now on, not just for the duration of your current legal issue.
  • We treat clients like people and not numbers – the same way we would like to be treated ourselves. Every client is treated with absolute respect and dignity.

  • We build our relationships upon a foundation of total honesty. Absolute honesty allows the client and the attorney to develop trust that will be absolutely critical to success in and out of the courtroom.

  • While the attorney client relationship may not always result in friendship, we believe it should always result in mutual respect. We zealously advocate on our clients’ behalf whether we agree with their choices or not. We do not judge our clients choices; we simply attempt to help them learn from them, live with them, and overcome them.

  • We make a commitment to communication. We begin and end many of our days communicating with clients. Our clients can count on us to return phone calls and/or e-mails within 24 hours except in emergencies or during announced absences from the office. We want our clients to always know what we know and vice-versa., and overcome them.

  • We play hard, we play fast, and we stick to the game plan. We work with every client to develop a strategy most likely to bring about their success. We work hard to ensure the strategy gives our client every advantage possible and their very best chance at success. We then implement that strategy as quickly and efficiently as possible.

  • We play to win. While we cannot guarantee outcomes in any case, we always do our best to see that our clients come out on top. We want our clients to know without question that their success matters to us more than their payments.

  • We serve at the clients’ pleasure. If for any reason whatsoever the client decides he/she is better off with a different attorney or law firm, we will respectfully and professionally do whatever we can to get the new attorney or law firm up to speed and ready to handle the case. We vow to never object to a client’s request to seek alternative counsel, and we promise to return 100% of any unearned advance payments.
