About Me

My goal is to help my clients resolve their legal issues in a cost-effective and timely manner. I have been a transactional business/ real estate attorney for over 24 years.  I have considerable experience with contract negotiations, drafting, due diligence work for business/ real estate transactions, commercial leasing, residential real estate, and general business management. I have both private practice and in-house experience. I previously served as General Counsel for one of my clients and understand issues faced by privately held companies. I was most recently an "Of Counsel" attorney with a Pacific Northwest regional law firm. I have now opened my own office. If I can help you with your business or real estate needs, please send me an email at roger@rtdlaw.com. Let me know that you found me via Avvo.
