AWARDS

 

 

Rogge Dunn Super Lawyers Top 100 Texas
 

Rogge Dunn Super Lawyers 17 Years Badge
 

 

 

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.

Dunn earned his spurs as a Senior Partner in two different mega-firms with offices around the world.  While huge firms are a good choice for many matters, they are bureaucratic and often lack flexibility and entrepreneurial spirit.

Dunn formed our Firm to provide the contingent fee flexibility and personal service lacking in most big firms.

Most of Dunn’s work involves high dollar, “bet the company/bet your reputation” matters.  However, as Dunn says, “I became a lawyer because I enjoy fighting for a good cause.  There is no greater privilege in my work than righting a wrong and slaying a Goliath.”

Dunn’s success gives him the financial security to accept smaller matters, work on a contingent fee and a pro bono basis.

Rogge Dunn represents ultra-high net worth individuals, Fortune 500, executives, as well as General Counsels, private equity firms,  coaches, professional athletes, Olympic gold medal winners, Judges and University Presidents.

One of the highest testaments to Dunn’s abilities is the fact that many companies and individuals Dunn has sued, later hired Dunn to represent them.

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)

—Cristina Mendoza

“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)

“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)

“For top producing financial advisors, Rogge is the go-to guy in our industry. His experience and work ethic are unmatched. He is excellent at resolving or avoiding non-compete and non-solicitation disputes.”


-David Barnes
Barron’s top 100 financial advisor (Dallas)

“Rogge is a trusted Wall Street advisor.  Rogge helps relationship managers, investment bankers, branch managers, and executives.  When I decided to change firms, I put my trust in Rogge.”

“He is extremely knowledgeable, well-informed and thorough.  
Rogge facilitated a smooth and amicable transition.”
