I HELP PEOPLE WITH DIFFICULT PROBLEMS.

I am a criminal justice attorney in Shreveport, Louisiana. A decade of experience and training for hire. I am never shocked, surprised or judgmental. I offer experience, skill, and preparation.

I have handled hundreds of cases. Some go to trial, some enter pleas. All are important; all are difficult due to their personal nature and the impact upon all involved.

I understand this. I return phone calls promptly, listen with empathy, research facts and law with diligence, and present the case in the best light possible for my client.

At the end of the day I can never guarantee a result, I do my best to make sure that the voices of the people I represent are heard.

Best of the Best
Mark is an amazing attorney and man. As my public defender, he believed in me and we took our case to trial and won. You won't find a better trial lawyer. He genuinely cares about people and not just the case. Best of the Best!

A lawyer that will go above and beyond for you
He is a lawyer that will tell you like it is. No promises only results. Mark will go out of the way for you and use his resources to the best of his abilities to help with your case. I thought I would have the mark of a felon on my record but he was able to get me into a diversion program, so my charges were dropped. Moreover, he help with the expungement of my arrest record. I will recommend him to anyone that truly needs help getting out of a bad situation.

Assistance with an Extradition Case
I contacted Mr. Rogers with questions concerning an extradition case. I explained my situation and he immediately explained the options I had, which were esentially none. He explained that the sooner the extradition toolk place the sooner my relative could be released from jail. Even though this was a misdemeanor, the action occurred in another state and therefore no bond. He returned my call within 1 and 1/2 hour and was stratight and to the point. A true professional and I could tell from our conversation he was extremely knowledgeable about the law and an honest person.

Professional, Prompt & Persistent!
I learned of an issue regarding my daughter which required retaining the services of an attorney. I was pressed for time to answer the issue and of course it was after 5pm and there were literally NO attorneys available at that time of day. Or if they were according to their recordings, they required an appointment which could be within 48 hours. However, I stumbled upon Mark and was floored that he personally answered the call on my first attempt to contact him. I almost cried because I was so happy to actually speak to an attorney. Let me reiterate; not a secretary, not a recording, I spoke to him! I gave Mark a brief description of my daughter's issue and he provided me with a response of what could be done. I'm sure he likely receives thousands of calls, and he never made me feel as though my case wasn't worth his time. Nor did he immediately address any pricing as some attorneys would. He was honest and informed me of what he would be better suited to represent her regarding, and honest that another attorney within my state would be better suited if the secondary portion of the issue was raised. I appreciated that because he could've lied. Long story made shorter, he agreed to meet with my daughter and I the NEXT day and represent her in the matter. He spoke to my daughter directly, provided her with information and the outcome of the matter was all that I could have hoped for. This man was my guardian angel, and I will be eternally grateful for all his help, especially at the 11th hour. You won't find many attorneys like Mark Rogers; and if you are in need of an attorney don't think twice, hire him! It was the best decision I made.

Mark helped with our expungement
My wife and I hired Mark to help us with an expungement. He was very helpful from our first call with him. We did the research filled out the forms and filed them ourselves with some help from Mark over the phone. Mark offered to appear in court for us which worked out great because we live in Oregon and did not want to travel to Louisiana during the Covid pandemic. Mark was responsive, friendly and professional. I would recommend Mark to anyone who wants to expunge a criminal record. .

Professional, quick, super helpful
I had a question related to the expungement of juvenile records and whether they are physically destroyed or just sealed. Mark responded very quickly and took extra effort to confirm his knowledge with a fellow attorney who specializes in representing juveniles. I was impressed with his professionalism and how he took the additional step of confirming his own knowledge. If I had a need to hire an attorney, I'd feel very comfortable hiring Mark. Excellent advice!

Great advise
Like anyone else, you do not go with the first, second or third lawyer you speak to. Immediately upon speaking with Mark Rogers, I could hear 100% honesty. Being the stand up guy that he is and not money hungry, he advised me to take better precaution in reguards to the circumstances. Thank you Sir. I know if I truly need him, he’s someone to count on.

Outstanding Attorney!!
Mark Rogers completed an exspungement for me in June of 2017. He was very professional, courteous, caring, honest, and dependable. He communicated with me in a timely manner, kept me up to date, and he returned my phone calls every time. He is the best attorney I have ever used!!! My advice to anyone looking for a great Attorney would be to read lots of reviews. I would highly recommend Mark Rogers to anyone, and I will definitely use him again.

simple criminal damage to property case. my case.
I was charged with simple criminal damage to property,don't remember exact date,but was around January of 2010.because the damage was estimated at $5000.00 it became a felony.the value of property was nowhere near that.He took the time to find out the truth and the change was reduced to a misdemeanor. He helped me to get justice or what was fair.

Wrongful termination
I was being accused of theft of property by my employer. I contacted Mr Rogers. He made an immediate recommendation. I followed his instructions. Although I did separate my employment, I didn't face any other legal actions thanks to Mr Rogers advise.

Wonderful, Caring Attorney
Mark worked very hard for my son. Got in felony charge dropped to lessor charge, then probation. Mark really cares about his clients and goes the extra mile talk to young people about consequences. Also did an expungement for another son, on an old charge on his record, that kept him from getting a good job. Great Lawyer!!!!

Great guy and attorney.
My son had multiple felonies due to his drug addiction. I did not have tens of thousands of dollars for a criminal defense. I had met Mr Rogers when he was a public defender, so I gave him a call. He got me right in for a free consultation and was very honest with me. He took my sons case for a very reasonable fee. He treated us very kindly and respectfully. And he got a very good outcome for my son.

Mark William Rogers
Mark Rogers represented a family member in a criminal case. I am not fond of lawyers as most of them are out to make a deal that is not always in the clients best interest. I am proud to say Mark Rogers does not fall in that category. He is a qualified attorney who will not settle for anything less than his clients best interest. I do not usually recommend legal counsel but Mark is the exception to the rule. I highly recommend him and trust him with any legal matters I would need an attorney for. He is very reasonable in price and well worth the money you spend.

A great attorney!!
Mark was my husband's public defender, but by his caring attitude, you would've thought he was our own personal attorney. He kept it real with us the entire time and fought the good fight with us. Thanks to him & his great work, the jury unanimously found my husband NOT guilty!!
Response from Mark Rogers June 2, 2018
This was by far one of the most difficult and trying cases I ever handled. This case really taught me what it means to fight for a client and to fight for what's right. The best NOT GUILTY verdict I've ever gotten from a jury!

Adoption Proceedings
After what has seemed a nightmare and a long hiatus, I decided to reach out again for another attorney to help my husband adopt my girls. Mr. Rogers responded and set us an appointment. We went in and he handled everything right in his office for a very reasonable fee. He was very professional and eased our worries. We had a great time talking with him and joking around and what should have been an emotional time (not to say I didn't cry a few times) turned into a great meeting with kindness, understanding and a light air. We left feeling confident in our case and assured of his commitment to see this through. We've had our fair share of lawyers going through divorces and custody issues and we're weary. Mr. Rogers definitely gave us the impression not all attorneys are terrible.
