"My last company retained Roger when a serious problem arose which threatened to derail our development. Roger is a consummate professional and very easy to work with. He immediately jumped in and became a valued part of our team to overcome the problem while preserving the business relationships necessary to complete the project. He was then successful in negotiating the claims and avoided a long court battle."
