MICHAEL C. ROGERS’ practice is concentrated on business litigation and employment law, specifically in the automotive and transportation arena.  Mr. Rogers’ clientele includes automobile dealership groups, single point dealerships, independent dealerships and affiliated businesses such as finance companies, flooring lenders, automobile service centers, and surety bonding companies.

In addition to his automotive law specialty, Mr. Rogers handles general litigation and business transactions for a variety of clients. 

More particularly, Mr. Rogers handles matters such as the following:

  • Representing clients involved in breach of contract, unfair business practices, trade secret violations, UCC, premises liability, and products liability litigation
  • Corporate, partnership and limited liability company formations and consultation
  • Business stock and asset sales, real property acquisitions, and commercial leases

While in college, Mr. Rogers spent his summers working for the U.S. Forest Service as a wildland fire fighter, including as a Hotshot and Smokejumper parachuting into remote wilderness fires.  Now he fights battles in the legal arena instead of the forests. The “in the trenches” work ethic Mr. Rogers acquired as a firefighter, as his clients and opponents would unanimously agree, makes him an excellent advocate.
