Roger attended Tulane University in New Orleans for both his undergraduate studies, and for Law School. Graduating from the Law School in 1995, he received magna cum laude and Order of the Coif honors for graduating in the top 10% of his class.   While still in law school, Roger cut his teeth as a public interest litigator with the Tulane Environmental Law Clinic.

Roger has extensive trial and appellate experience and has an excellent record of getting results for his clients.

Roger moved to the Western Slope and joined the Tisdel Law Firm in 2001.  He has been a shareholder since 2003. Since beginning his practice on the Western Slope, Roger has been involved in a wide variety of cases and legal matters.   He was part of the trial team that successfully defended a small mining company and its officers against fraud claims brought by Barrick Goldstrike Mines.   He secured substantial ERISA benefits on behalf of children and their court-appointed conservators from their late father’s employer.   He brought malpractice claims against a surveying company resulting from errors in the survey of patented mining claims which resulted in a substantial settlement for his client.

Roger has drafted and negotiated complex business agreements on behalf of clients.  His understanding of the pitfalls of drafting, through his litigation experience, helps him to advise clients about structuring agreements that have the best chance of avoiding future misunderstandings.   That same skill also allows Roger to structure creative settlements in the litigation context.

Roger also practices criminal defense, and has taken on clients charged with misdemeanors and felonies throughout the Western Slope.  As defense counsel, he is particularly interested and aware of 4th Amendment Search and Seizure issues that often present themselves in criminal cases.

Roger understands the costs and stresses associated with litigation.   Roger believes strongly in alternative dispute resolution.   For this reason, Roger is a certified mediator and is available to mediate disputes in business, domestic relations, or any other matter in which the parties agree or are ordered to attempt mediation before taking their matter to trial.
