Drost Kivlahan McMahon & O’Connor Promotes Rhonda Jensen, Ernest Rose to Partner

January 14, 2020— Drost Kivlahan McMahon & O’Connor LLC (DKMO) is pleased to announce Rhonda S. Jensen and Ernest L. Rose as the firm’s newest partners.

Jensen has been an attorney at DKMO since 1999 focusing her practice in estate planning, and probate and trust administration. She currently serves as Manager of DKMO’s Estate Planning Department. Jensen graduated from Indiana University and received her Juris Doctorate from The John Marshall Law School in 1993.

“Rhonda has played a significant role in DKMO’s evolution over many years and has led the growth of our estate planning department,” Managing Partner Patrick McMahon said. “Her experience and leadership are invaluable to DKMO, and this recognition is very well-deserved.”

Rose joined DKMO in 2014 concentrating in residential real estate. Rose graduated summa cum laude from Drake University and received his Juris Doctorate from The University of Iowa College of Law in 2012.

“In just five years, Ernie has established himself as an invaluable member of our team.  As Manager of Residential Real Estate, he’s proven himself as an effective leader that is focused on the growth of DKMO,” McMahon said. “We look forward to seeing him bring these same qualities to the entire firm as Partner.”

This announcement comes on the heels of a long period of growth at DKMO. In 2019, the firm restructured its practice areas and welcomed three new attorneys and many dedicated staff members. To accommodate its growth, DKMO completed an expansion into the adjacent space at 15 S. Dunton Avenue in Arlington Heights. The wing includes additional offices, several work areas, and a new conference room.
