About Us

Real People, Serious Expertise

After working in prestigious corporate firms, the partners at Mooney Wieland Smith & Rose decided to go our own way. We merged in 2017 to create a boutique law firm that values client relationships, personal attention, and successful outcomes above all else. One that’s built upon a foundation of trust and transparency.

Although thousands of miles apart, Idaho and American Samoa pose similar legal challenges to businesses and others looking to navigate these young, Wild West-like jurisdictions’ laws. Our team has broad expertise in commercial law and extensive experience establishing business operations for clients in these unique legal landscapes. We’re equipped to handle almost any manner of legal challenge, from major multistate litigation to large commercial transactions, to help you get business done in two hemispheres.

Our Clients

As companies look to expand operations in the Mountain West, Boise is becoming one of the fastest growing and most desirable cities in America. MWS Rose partners Jaren and Steve Wieland practice commercial litigation, employment law, corporate law, intellectual property law, alcoholic beverage law, and much more from our downtown offices in Idaho’s beautiful capital city.

American Samoa

Established by Barry Rose in 1994, our American Samoa office near the island’s capital of Pago Pago houses three of our firm’s founding partners. Formerly known as Rose Joneson Vargas, our American Samoa practice is critical to those looking to establish businesses or expand operations into the Pacific and offers unmatched expertise on doing business in American Samoa’s unique legal environment.
