  • Lina Beckford

    Roger and I had the opportunity to work together on a challenging child custody/modification case. He advocated very effectively for his client without making a difficult case worse. We successfully resolved the case to the satisfaction of both of our clients. Roger's commitment to having a successful outcome was was one of the keys to making it happen I've watched Roger in court and his is always well prepared, professional and disarmingly effective. I would call Roger a "smooth operator." No tricks, no hype, just damn fine lawyering. I endorse this lawyer.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension
    issued in WA, 2006


    This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

    Roger’s comment: “In 2001, I made the mistake of accessing my former girlfriend's Hotmail account by guessing her password to recover an expensive ring I had given her and which a court had ordered her to return. This led to a six month suspension of my license to practice in 2006. I cooperated fully with the bar association, and I deeply regret this lapse of judgment. In my 25 years of practice, I have received no other discipline from the bar association.”
