Professional and caring
> I hired Attorney Rogers to prepare a QDRO for me after my divorce settlement. The Plan Administrator would not release my checks and kept giving me the run around Attorney Rogers continued to contact the Plan to make sure everything was correct and pushed them to comply with the QDRO she drafted. This was a State government Plan so there was a lot of red tape .She cared enough to continued to check and didn’t let it go. She backed her work even though the Plan gave her a hard time. As a result of her dedication, everything was eventually settled and I am now receiving my monthly share of the pension. I really appreciate the service of Attorney Beth Rogers and would strongly recommend her as an attorney

Goes the extra mile. Diligent
Recently my client retained Attorney Rogers to draft a QDRO for her benefit that was administered by the MTA. The QDRO was well-written but the MTA created a host of problems and the distributions were not getting to my client. Beth jumped and kept following up with the MTA and even redrafted portions of the QDRO to accommodate MTA's whims. She goes the extra mile for you and she goes the extra mile to back up her work product. Beth Rogers sincerely cares about doing a good job.

Expert in YOUR side of the table!
Beth was absolutely wonderful during my custody dispute. She accompanied me during our mediation and worked with opposing counsel to get everything settled and sealed even in the midst of a pandemic. When I met with Beth (about an hour and a half free consult), I knew she was ready to fight for me. She knew all the mediators in our area, and just has a professional network in the area. Just look her up — she has hundreds of cases under her belt. A seasoned professional. She is sensitive when dealing with issues younger children. She was receptive to my input when I disagreed with an approach and she gave me the straight shoot every time. She cares about her clients. She doesn’t nickel and dime with charging and invoicing. Beth will work tirelessly to make sure your child(ren) have the best outcome.

The BEST in the business
I was stressing about an issue I was having with my ex-husbands retirement benefits and she has guided me and helped me the entire way. She has made the stress dissipate and was so professional and helpful from the very first contact. I cant recommend her enough or say enough good things about her.

Proactive Professional
Beth is an amazing attorney! First of all, she listens and actually cares about your family situation. I could not have asked for better representation. I always felt like I received her undivided attention and that she understood my situation and was my true advocate. She is proactive, straight forward, honest, and attentive to detail. She makes sure all paperwork is completed correctly and submitted on time. She knows family law well, and her legal advice is rock solid. She has an assertive presence in the courtroom and I was grateful to have her represent me. I was actually referred to Beth by the ex-spouse of someone Beth represented in a divorce case. That's how good she is! Best advice I ever took. I highly recommend her.

Fantastic
I retained Beth to help me through a rather difficult divorce and mediation. She always had my best interests at heart and was very responsive to my concerns. She ensured that I received exactly what I was entitled to - and didn't allow my ex-wife to take advantage of my emotions. Can't say enough good things about her.

AMAZING LAWYER!!
I recommend Ms. Royers to anyone. My case started with my wife pushing me out of the house by getting a protective order against me. My Ex hired what appears to be very intimidating lawyer. And at first he was intimidating in to my eyes. Very soon I realized that it was all the opposite, I had hired and a "Giant Lion". I mean, The lady kick some serious ass!. She very was responsive, always prepared and did not miss a beat. My ex accuse me of almost everything imaginable. So she could get a speedy divorce. Ms Rogers Protected me during every accusation! Ms Rogers was Fair and she fought not just for me but more importantly for my KIDS. In court she was just incredible and in the end the real truth came out. I ended up getting the divorce and I got my kids back. There is no BS with her, She will tell it like it is. She knows the Law and she made me feel always confident that I had a GREAT Lawyer by my side. And GREAT she was indeed. I will be always grateful to her.

Exceptional Attorney!
Ms. Beth Rogers is the third attorney I hired to defend my interest but the FIRST one who has my interest as her priority. She is knowledgeable, professional, and trustworthy and her rate is reasonable. In a recent case, Ms. Beth Rogers presented to court all the evidence. She was not only articulate and organized but did an excellent job in representing me.

Excellent Attorney
I currently retained Beth for legal representation for my disabled, special needs daughter involving both guardianship and child support. Although we are still in the legal process of my daughter's case, I am very impressed with Beth's professionalism, efficiency, responsiveness, and overwhelming enthusiasm to help my disabled daughter. She is truly concerned with my daughter's well being. Beth has worked with the Maryland Disability Law Center, has advocated for disabled clients to obtain much needed DDA services, and is familiar with key legal contacts who handle child support at the Howard County Department of Social Services, which is a plus for the legal efforts for my daughter. I find her very knowledgeable and when she was unsure of a particular item (which has only been once), she made contact with those who have expertise in that area. Because of my positive experience with Beth's legal representation for my daughter thus far, I have referred her to several parents of special needs children.

Excellent & professional Lawyer
Ms. Rogers & her staff have been amazing in every step of my case. I am very satisfied with her service.

Beth Rogers is simply great!
I am a very critical person (almost to the point of being a cynic.) As such, reviews of 1 star or 5 stars often strike me as too circumstantial or highly emotional and not well thought through. I must say that the "Excellent" individual and overall ratings I give Mrs. Rogers are well thought out. She has, thus far, proven to be very knowledgeable, thorough, and responsive. I could be fooled, but she also seems to care about her clients (at least in my case.) Nonetheless, she was very frank and forthcoming with me. My issues are certainly no resolved, and, should I need to retain legal counsel again (on this or any legal area she is licensed and knowledgeable of,) she will be my first call. I would and will recommend her to anyone I know in need of a family law attorney.

Beth is a very firm and aggressive attorney who likes to take a no non-sense apporach to resolving legal matters. I'm happy with the outcome of my case thus far.

Grateful to Beth Rogers
I will always be grateful to Beth Rogers for the help, professionalism, and expertise she provided to my family when we needed an attorney to handle a custody, support case for us. She was honest and forthright in all her interactions. I always felt like she put the childs needs above all others and always responded in a very prompt manor. She was comforting when we felt helpless and strong when we needed hope. We have had to contact Beth frequently since she handled our case a year ago. She continues to amaze me with how much she cares and how much she is willing to fight for what is right for the child involved. We will always be grateful to Beth for her knowledge and her passion of family law.

Highly Recommend
Beth is fantastic! I was amazed when I watched her in action during my child custody trial. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and I could tell she actually cared about my opinions and worked with me to achieve the outcome I desired. She kept me informed during the entire process leading up to my case and offered advice in regards to various events that transpired while waiting for the trail date. She quickly responded to any voice message I left for her, and the majority of e-mail messages were answered in under a few hours from the time I sent them, even on weekends. She even took time to respond to a question that I had left for her while she was back home dealing with a family emergency. Furthermore, I could tell she spent a great deal of time planning for my case, and it was evident once we were inside the courtroom. My son was only a year old when my separation began, and it was a really hard and stressful event. I had seen other men go through divorce and child custody, only to get a fraction of time with their children afterward. I even had a marriage counselor, who I went to see with my wife, telling me I would be lucky to get my son 35% of the time. Well, I now have shared legal, and shared physical custody of my son which is what I wanted all along! I will definitely be using Beth for my divorce and will be at ease knowing she will handle it.

Great Customer Service from Beth L. Rogers
Beth Rogers is extremely easy to work with. She is forthright in her views but most importantly she listens and responds to her client's desires. She responds quickly to both phone calls and emails. Through email, she minimizes the wait states normally expected in dealing with busy lawyers. In addition, Beth Rogers is strong and passionate when she deals with opposing counsel. Her disposition is no nonsense and straightforward. She is expert in the field of separation and divorce and cares a great deal about the effect these events have on all involved and strives to minimize the consequences.

Referral for a dicorce attorney
I am working with Beth on my divorce. I realize that all divorce cases can be emotional and difficult on family members but my case was especially difficult. In my case it was extremely difficult to reach any agreements or conclusions with my spouse. The disharmony began to take a personal and professional toll on me. Needless to say, the disagreeing can become very expensive too. Beth worked diligently with my spouses attorney to reach agreements on matters concerning child visitiation, communications and of, course finances. More importantly Beth provided me with sensible advice when I grew tired of reacting rationally iwhen confronted with hostile and extremely irrational behavior. In other words Beth talked sensibly to me and explained why taking the high road, even in the face of such misbehavior, was the best decision for my future and my childrens' futures. I feel i have more control over my future and relieved knowing that I will have legal counsel that is working to reach an equitable legal conclusion on a case. And that is important to me because this isn't just my case. This is my divorce. My family. And our future.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
5 examples
She: (1) claimed a draft agreement that allowed a party out for financing reasons could be used to get out for other reasons instead of editing it, (2) made C&D claims for parties she did not represent, (3) made an error in the legal standard for judicial review in a court filing and didn't correct it, (4) claimed another attorney told her something would take 48 hours but minutes later the other attorney said less than a day and never provided evidence for 48 hour claim, (5) may have failed to recognize an opportunity for her client to make a Qui Tam claim. If this is the type of attorney you want, she would be awesome.

Seems Aggressive and Helpful but Lacks Experience
Beth may appear aggressive and emotionally wanting to help your case, but she tries to settle cases and push you to agree to things that may not be in the best interest of the child. She doesn't charge you for every little thing, but she doesn't get very involved either. She could have stopped my ex from taking things to court if she would have called the appropriate BIA and PC to push them to act in the child's best interest. She is quick to blame the client when things go wrong.

Response from Beth Rogers January 31, 2013
It is unfortuntate when someone's situation does not go as they would hope it would. Attorney's can't control the behavior of the opposing party, their counsel, or their own client. They can only advise and guide them. It is human nature to want to blame someone when things do not go as you want them to. I aggressively advocate for my client's in both settlement negotiations and in court. Sometimes settlement is the best option as things can be worse in court. I have worked regularly with BIA's and PC's and know how to communcicate with them professionally. Everyone does not always have the view about what is in the child's best interest and when it is an emotional situation it is very difficult.
