  1. Formed by experienced trial lawyers, Rogge Dunn Group is a trial boutique handling business, employment, and FINRA matters.  The founding partners have tried cases in 7 states and 13 Texas cities.  We assembled a team of lawyers with big firm talent without the bureaucratic constraints, high fees and conflicts of interests.  Our Firm’s approach gives us contingent fee flexibility and the creativity to think and operate outside the box.

    Don’t take our word for our courtroom success and client satisfaction. Take a minute to read the verdicts, published legal opinions and news reports on the results we’ve obtained for clients all around Texas and the United States. Review the numerous client testimonials that satisfied, repeat clients have sent us. View Testimonials

    Our track record of pushing to resolve disputes quickly with a minimum of attorneys’ fees—but having the trial experience, litigation muscle and energy to go all the way to the finish line, when the other side is unreasonable—is the key to our success.

  2. Lawsuits are generally time intensive and emotionally draining. Some successful lawyers coast on their reputations and don’t put in long hours and work weekends. There is no substitute for attention to detail and hard work.

    Our energy and enthusiasm produces results. When litigation looms, you need more than a “book smart lawyer,” you need a smart and street savvy trial attorney who has the energy and enthusiasm for an intense fight.

    Interview attorneys before you hire them. Judge their heart and character. When you are looking across boxes of half-eaten deli sandwiches, chips and cookies in a conference room at 2 a.m. in the morning, will they have the same energy and enthusiasm they did when they took your first retainer check? If you find such an attorney, hire them, whether it’s us or someone else.

  3. It’s surprising how many lawyers don’t give out their cell phone numbers, take calls on weekends or respond while on vacation.  It has always amazed Rogge Dunn that plumbers and HVAC repairmen are available 24/7, yet lawyers are not.  A stopped up sink is a hassle, but responding to a client facing a legal crisis or dispute involving millions of dollars is usually significantly more critical than home repairs.

    Responding promptly to our client’s inquires is why all of our lawyers have their cell phone number on their emails and business cards.  It is also why we have a designated paralegal watch attorneys’ emails.  While a call or two may occasionally fall through the cracks, here at Rogge Dunn Group, our seasoned trial attorneys are totally committed and strive to be responsive 24/7/365.

    And, yes, it’s true, one of our partners who was climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania with his son, checked voicemails and took client calls on the mountain with a satellite phone.

  4. Choose your attorney carefully.  Many attorneys are adept at pushing paper, but seldom take cases all the way to a jury verdict.  Ask the lawyer specifically how many times he or she has obtained a jury verdict.

    Hiring an experienced trial lawyer who flourishes at trial increases your settlement leverage.  If the other side knows your lawyer is bluffing, you will leave money on the table or overpay, if you are a defendant.  When the other side knows they are negotiating against a seasoned trial attorney, you maximize your settlement position, as either a plaintiff or defendant.

  5. We work collaboratively with teams of other lawyers on big cases and executives who band together. We listen to clients and industry experts and, working together, develop and implement a game plan. We do not tell clients what they have to do; we listen and learn your goals. Then, we roll up our sleeves and work with you, shoulder to shoulder, to deliver results.

    Many of our attorneys earned their spurs as Senior Partners in mega-firms with offices around the world.  While huge firms are a good choice for many matters, they often lack flexibility. Big firms may view you as merely a one-time, low priority client compared to corporate clients who constitute the bulk of their business. Rogge Dunn Group gives you personalized attention. We treat each client like we want to be treated.

  6. Too many law firms stir up trouble or foment litigation without making an aggressive effort to resolve a dispute or lawsuit early on. Rogge Dunn Group takes a long run view and treat our clients like long term partners. Many clients hire us again and again and refer their family, friends and business colleagues because we resolved their matter promptly for a minimum of attorney’s fees. We want to be your lawyers for life.

Testimonials

“Every restauranteur’s worst nightmare is the murder of their employees. When two former employees robbed and killed three Outback Steakhouse employees in East Texas, we needed an accomplished trial lawyer who understood our culture and could connect with our employees. We chose Rogge. Outback has always used every security technique to provide a safe workplace. Rogge vindicated Outback’s approach to security and got the plaintiffs’ cases dismissed in their entirety on a summary judgment motion.”


-Blaise Hadley
Former Regional VP, Outback Steakhouse (Dallas)

“Rogge is Outback’s go-to lawyer for significant commercial litigation. For more than 20 years we have used Rogge to obtain injunctive relief for Outback in significant cases all across the country.”

“I’ve seen a lot of trial lawyers in action. Rogge is one of the best.”


—Joe Kadow
General Counsel and Sr. Vice President, Bloomin’ Brands (Tampa)

“Rogge, thanks for making my transition from American to United
a smooth, short and affordable flight.”


—Scott Kirby
President, United Airlines

“Rogge is well known for his expertise in helping C-level executives negotiate contracts and non-compete issues. He is a good counselor, trusted negotiator, and an excellent trial attorney.” 

“I had the opportunity to observe him in action in a mock trial and it’s comforting to know that if litigation is necessary, the same person who drafted an executive contract has the communication skills necessary to persuade a jury that the contract is both valid and fair.”


—Fred Perpall
CEO, Beck (Dallas)

“Thank you for your legal work on my behalf. I appreciate your prompt assistance and efficiency.”


—Larry Brown
Basketball Hall of Fame Coach (New York)

“Rogge did an excellent job of representing me and assisting Tech in winning the Coach Mike Leach lawsuit.”


—Guy Bailey
Former President, Texas Tech University (Lubbock)

“Rogge, You are one of those five special people in a life. Serious, talented but with a big heart.”

“You remained so accessible and always attentive during a period of upheaval in our lives.  We are forever grateful for your confidence, expertise, and personal touch–I owe you.”


—Brian Horan
Former Director SC Region Medtronic (Dallas)

“When I needed a top notch attorney for advice on my employment contract, I chose Rogge. He was knowledgeable and very responsive. He protected my economic interests and professional reputation. Rogge knows how to play hardball.”

“Big league managers to Fortune 500 CEOs choose Rogge for help in employment and business disputes. Given his knowledge, experience, and reputation, Rogge is someone I have on my team.”


—Buck Showalter
Former Manager, Baltimore Orioles (Baltimore)

“Our Company was sued for $38 million regarding pressure vessels on offshore gas rigs. Rogge and his team won a summary judgment exonerating us of all liability and won a $92,000 judgment for our attorneys’ fees against the plaintiff.”


—Jean Cohn
Vice President and General Counsel, HSB Group (Hartford)

“For many years Rogge has helped CBRE successfully resolve significant litigation and arbitration matters.”


—Ellis Reiter, Jr.
Former General Counsel, Litigation, CBRE (Los Angeles)

“Rogge, I cannot begin to thank you enough.  You are a star!  You are an excellent lawyer: thorough, extremely well prepared; fun and well-connected!”

“Thanks again for your prompt and successful resolution of a significant and challenging legal matter for Benihana.”


—Cristina Mendoza
General Counsel and Secretary, Benihana (Miami)

“Rogge successfully enforced a non-compete for our company. When the former employee counter-claimed against us, Rogge’s cross-examination at trial destroyed his case and enabled LODESTAR to win a great result.”

“I have worked with some of the top lawyers in New York and Boston.
Rogge’s trial skills are among the best I’ve seen.”


—Lori Lynn
Former VP & Corporate Counsel, LODESTAR Corporation (Boston)

“When I was Sr. VP of Operations for Outback, I went to trial with Rogge in two lengthy and difficult lawsuits. His ability to connect with the jurors enabled Outback to win favorable jury verdicts both times.”

“Once Rogge finished his devastating cross exam of the plaintiffs suing Outback, their cases were completely dismantled.”


—Steve Erickson
President, PDQ (Tampa)

“Ex-pats face a lot of challenges, not the least of which is understanding their legal rights in their home country and the foreign country where they work. When I was in a tough fight for substantial change in control benefits, I hired Rogge. He was willing to work on a contingent fee.”

“We worked together as a team, which enabled me to obtain a fair resolution of my dispute.  Since then I’ve hired Rogge on two other occasions to provide me with advice and negotiation assistance on my executive employment contracts.”


—Glen Camp
Former Managing Director, Mono Pumps (England)

“When a PE firm with an activist investor reputation bought a controlling stake in the company,  I knew I was in for a fight.  They fired me without good cause, triggering my Change in Control  benefits.  They refused to pay my CIC benefits,  falsely accused me of poison pill tactics  and sued me personally for $9.4 million.

Then they waged a PR campaign against me.  Rogge and I fought back and on the morning we started trial,  they settled and paid me $2.8 million—a $12.2 million swing in my favor.  And, my actions and reputation were vindicated in a New York Times article.”


-Ronnie Parker
Former CEO, Pizza Inn (Dallas)

“I’ve worked closely with Rogge on numerous significant litigation matters for 15+ years.  He defended me in deposition and I’ve seen him in action. His attention to detail, energy and enthusiasm is second to none.  He is knowledgeable about the law, but most important, he is “street smart,” which enables him to relate to our employees and connect with a jury.”


-Paul Avery
Former COO, Bloomin’ Brands; CEO, World of Beer (Tampa)
