He has handled international law arbitrations and arbitrations throughout the United States, and handled cases in Alaska, Idaho, Utah, California, New York and Michigan as well as cases in over a third of the counties in Washington.
Roger and his wife love to travel. He’s seldom without a book nearby and claims the scariest thing possible is to be on a long flight and not have a “backup book.” Roger enjoys hiking, having climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa, and Mt. Whitney, the highest point in the contiguous United States.
Roger loves his litigation practice. Since joining the firm in 1981, he has handled a broad range of disputes—everything from real estate, to product liability, to intellectual property. His passion for litigation is displayed in his enthusiasm for his work—whether arguing to a jury, persuading a judge or advocating before a panel of appellate judges.
