"I worked closely with Roger for almost a decade on numerous complex matters in southern California. In my prior role as Vice President Associate General Counsel, I managed litigation across the country. Roger never ceased to amaze me with deep knowledge of all aspects of the many cases he handled for us. Whenever I called, he was right on top of everything.
