He served as legal counsel in Stevenson v. Commonwealth of Pa., a class action that successfully challenged in the Supreme Court certain practices of the Pennsylvania Lottery Commission. Roger’s interest in litigation developed during this time and he remains active in civil litigation and in business-related matters.

Roger has litigated numerous cases in diverse oil, gas, and mineral law issues in both state and federal courts in Western Pennsylvania, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in complex litigation. These issues have involved injunctions, quiet title actions, declaratory judgments, as well as regulatory and zoning matters before various state and local municipalities, and the construction of mining facilities, gas compressor stations, and pipeline facilities.

Roger has defended clients in state and federal courts in civil rights actions filed against boroughs, counties, and other municipal corporations. He has also served as legal counsel in the prosecution of class action lawsuits and has been employed to defend similar actions in state and federal courts.

A member of the Washington County, Allegheny County, and Pennsylvania Bar Associations, Roger served in 1989 as President of the Washington County Bar Association and was President of the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Washington County in 1995.
