I grew up in Middle Tennessee and graduted from Brentwood High School in 1993. I graduated from Samford University in 1997.

 

I had the privilege of working for the Williamson County Circuit Court Judges while I was in law school. That experience gave me valuable insight into the judicial system which I have used to effectively represent my clients. I began my practice in 2005 serving clients in Middle Tennessee.

 

In 2007, I was appointed to serve as a Juvenile Magistrate for Williamson County on a part-time basis. In that role, I preside over court proceedings involving custody matters and deliquency cases.

 

My goal is to provide each client with effective and professional representation. I believe communication with my clients is important to build trust and to provide valuable information to them regarding their cases.

Knowledgeable Lawyer
Josh was my lawyer in a post -divorce matter. He was very knowledgeable of the law and professional to work with. He helped me get the results in my case that I wanted. I would recommend him to others.

Stellar Family Law Attorney
For many years Josh has represented me in a number of post divorce issues particularly regarding custody concerns. I can’t emphasis how much his assistance has contributed to the well-being of my daughter who I have had primary custody of since 2011 at age 5. I cannot imagine a better outcome from any other attorney, and I highly recommend his services.

Perfect lawyer for complicated divorce
In my complicated and highly emotional child custody battle Josh was the perfect lawyer. He prepared me for every scenario I might encounter and was able to help me keep a calm rational perspective. He advised me on how I could protect myself and my daughter even when I felt paralyzed. Highly recommend him because he is dependable, trustworthy and truly a good person through and through!

Wonderful Lawyer
Its sounds strange saying that any divorce is a good experience. But I can say that Mr Rogers was the reason it was as smooth as it was. For years I tried doing it on my own and trying to find ways to get it done. Josh was a God-send. His advice and experience got it done quickly and in a manner I could feel good about. Would definitely recommend him and would use him again.

It is rare in life for someone to come along that makes a lasting and permanent impact AND imprint in our lives.
It is rare in life for someone to come along that makes a lasting and permanent impact AND imprint in our lives. Josh Rogers is such a person. I had a very difficult child custody dispute as part of my divorce. Josh handled it with an uncommon level of professionalism and integrity. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking sage council. He achieved tangible results that I WILL NOT soon forget.

Mr. Rogers assisted me in my recent divorce and couldn't have been any better. He is very well respected in the legal community and simply did a fantastic job in representing me as well as keeping the best interest of my kids in mind. If faced with divorce, Josh Rogers is the man you want on your side.

Pro-active, excellent attorney
Joshua Rogers is an excellent attorney. He's professional, diligent, dependable, thorough, and will do what it takes and guide you till all is said and done. His paralegal, September, is also fantastic. I couldn't ask for a better experience during such a grim time in my life.

Mr. Joshua Rogers
Josh Rogers was such a blessing! Our teenage daughter attended a party where there was underage drinking involved. We were referred to Mr. Rogers by a very prominent attorney in Nashville who did not handle this type of situation. From the first meeting we knew we had the right person. Professional and extremely knowledgable in criminal law. Compassionate yet precise with our daughter in potential consequences. He walked us through the process step by step. He was highly effective in presenting her case to the district attorney and we received the best possible outcome. It was a life lesson that many teenagers walk through, thankful to have such a qualified attorney by our side.
