Our Firm


Rogers Joseph O’Donnell is a litigation boutique founded in 1981 by a group of attorneys who believed — and continue to believe — that smaller is smarter. Free from the bureaucratic and economic burdens of a supersize law firm, we can listen to our clients more attentively, think more creatively, and act more nimbly.

Our relationships with clients, whether individual or corporate, are personal: trust builds from year to year as matters are smoothly managed and disputes brought to satisfactory resolution. We represent Fortune 500 companies, private corporations and partnerships, start-ups, non-profits, government entities, family trusts, and individuals throughout California and across the United States.

Diversity Statement

Equal opportunity has been a core value at Rogers Joseph O’Donnell since our founding. We recognize that individuals representing diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives enhance our working environment and improve the quality of service to our clients.

Since talent is not limited by age, disability, gender, gender identity, national origin, religious belief or sexual orientation, we find that we attract the most exceptional individuals when we seek talent from the entire spectrum of the greater world we live in.  Our commitment to equal opportunity and diversity is not solely focused on our recruitment efforts but also extends to the retention and advancement of our colleagues.

Rogers Joseph O’Donnell emphasizes a culture of mutual respect and inclusion at all levels within the firm and we pride ourselves in providing our staff and attorneys with  the opportunity for professional development and advancement. All attorneys at RJO serve on committees of importance to the firm, and women, minorities, and members of the LGBTQ community have always been well represented in management and leadership positions.

Rogers Joseph O’Donnell participates in professional and community activities that promote diversity, tolerance and equality, as well as initiatives to increase the pipeline of diverse individuals entering the field of law and is a member of the California Minority Counsel Program.
