Client Comments

"Greg did an excellent job preparing a brief and arguing a motion for summary judgment in an employment discrimination case in federal district court. He won, and the plaintiff appealed. Greg successfully argued and won on appeal. The issue was one of first impression. Greg was also a delight to work with. He is an excellent employment lawyer."

"I appreciate Greg's knowledge of our business and ability to apply the law in a very practical way. He is an active partner in giving us advice and keeps in mind the big picture. His timeliness in responding is unequaled and much appreciated."

"My roles at AK Steel of Labor Counsel (in-house counsel for labor and employment matters) and Manager of Human Resources have allowed me the opportunity to work with a good number of outside attorneys. Greg has stood out in this group, as he has repeatedly and consistently found a way to get the result needed by the Company. When you - as an in-house attorney or human resources manager - are judged by results, you want to have Greg in your corner."

"Greg Rogers has been advising us in employment law and labor contract negotiations for over 10 years. He is friendly to deal with, very responsive, and most importantly, furnishes very sound counsel."

"Mr. Greg Rogers is an extraordinary lawyer who possesses excellent judgment. Greg manifests meticulous attention to detail and tactics. Greg is prompt in his responses. Greg is warm, reassuring, and sensitive in demeanor, but a prizefighter on your behalf. It was wonderful having Greg on our side. His word proved to be as good as gold. We won in a landslide. I cannot recommend him more highly."

His broad-based knowledge of labor contract administration and employment law in general are superior assets for problems that cross all Human Resources functions. His succesful conclusion rate to formal employee complaints and grievance arbitration attest to his skill as discussed. He is an attorney who I would want to represent me in any major labor/employment practices case."

"I have worked closely with Mr. Rogers for a number of years and believe him to be a "lawyers' lawyer" in every positive way this expression conveys. Greg is highly professional in everything he does. He has the ability to make quick assessments of each client's problem, as well as the unique skill and talent to identify the primary legal issues and focus on an appropriate course of action to maximize, protect, and advance the client's legal interests. No matter what the issue, Greg will handle it with the goal in mind to achieve the best result possible, fairly, and honorably. He is a credit to the profession and a truly fine lawyer in every sense of the word."

-Milan Chestovich
Senior Counsel

"In dealing with Mr. Rogers I found him to be very honest and incredibly straightforward. In working with various other counsels in the past, I have found that when you ask questions you normally receive very "non-committing" answers. This is not so with Mr. Rogers. His answers were ALWAYS very direct and to the point. He did not try to "sugar-coat" anything and told me exactly what I was against and the probable and possible repercussions to any action we would take. His straightforwardness allowed me to perfectly understand my position, both legally and financially, and give me a firm basis for the decisions I had to make going forward. This was very refreshing when dealing in a world with a lot of typical unknowns. The other aspect I enjoyed in my dealings with Mr. Rogers was his ability to keep me informed of the process and the level of communication he maintained. Being in different parts of the country, updates and information flow can become difficult. He did a wonderful job of keeping me up to date on the information and whenever I had a question he was always quick to respond - and, again, his responses were very much on point. Although I never want to be involved in litigation in Ohio again, should it happen, I would make only one call - to Greg Rogers. "

"Greg is an extremely bright, dedicated attorney. His attention to clients is unsurpassed. He is always available and responsive. He has excellent business sense and is a solid partner. His ability to strategize, manage, and create results in complex benefits litigation is phenomenal. I trust him completely. He genuinely cares about his clients."
