Bringing Hope to Those in Need

For Roger, being a trial lawyer is the best job in the world. No matter the stress of someone’s situation, he knows that through hard work, dedication and caring, something positive is always on the horizon. From a young age, Roger was wired to use logic to find the truth in every situation. Today, he applies that same drive to give every client the results they deserve.  

The more I do this, the more I love what I’m doing. There’s nothing like helping people not just survive a difficult moment, but thrive afterwards.

Expertise in Action.

Roger has the experience to fight for you through whatever you’re dealing with:

  • Medical Malpractice
  • Birth Injuries
  • Wrongful Death
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Brain Injuries
  • Trucking Collisions

Winning Together.

Even after everything he’s accomplished, Roger believes everything he’s done is to the credit of a loyal, sacrificing family, partners and support staff.
