Jennifer (Jenny) Rozelle, Attorney & Partner

Since 2012, Jenny has been part of the Indiana Estate & Elder Law team.

Beyond pre-planning, her work extends to assisting personal representatives and/or trustees when a loved one passes, or when probate and/or trust administration may be required. Before this process truly begins, she creates a step-by-step plan for the personal representative and/or trustee with options of how to proceed.

Tina Mann, Attorney

Tina is a first-generation college graduate. She earned her undergraduate degree in political science at Indiana State University (ISU) and then obtained a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.

She worked as an attorney for several years before pausing her career to raise her family. After a 14-year hiatus, she began legally representing homeowner’s associations. Knowing that collections was not her preferred area of law, Tina began learning and assisting with estate planning at Indiana Estate & Elder Law. 

Tina eventually left the firm to work as a solo practitioner. Her work then took her to the Attorney General’s Office in the medical licensing division and criminal appeals division. Over time, Tina missed one-on-one client interactions. It was humbling to help them navigate estate planning during times of high stress at Indiana Estate & Elder Law. Due to this, she returned to a team that she has known for years, a team with a high-quality work ethic, and compassion for clients.

Tina and her husband John live in Noblesville, Ind., with their two cairn terriers, Misiu and TJ. They have four daughters and two grandchildren that they often visit out west. No matter the weather, Tina loves being outdoors. Her hobbies include running local trails and most recently, quilting.

Rachael has known she wanted to be an attorney since she was 12 years old and has worked in the field in a variety of capacities, many of which included Estate Planning and Elder Law.

In Rachael’s twenty’s she experienced the loss of many family members. When discussing the experience of losing so many in such a short time, Rachael notes her gratitude that each of her loved ones had left behind a Will or Trust, eliminating a level of stress and worry from the family that was trying to grieve. It was these experiences that led Rachael to Indiana Estate & Elder Law. She realized she wanted to help families plan for their futures, care for their loved ones, and navigate the estate administration process after a death. She knows that working on a team that eases families’ burdens in these stressful situations is the right career decision for her.

Rachael is married to her high school sweetheart, Nick. They enjoy playing board games, playing in a slow-pitch softball league, visiting Lake Santee, and catching up on their favorite tv shoes. Her hobbies include grilling, sewing, and reading when she is not spending time with her family and friends.
