Daniel B. Rogers handles individual, multiparty and class action litigation in various fields, including product liability, insurance, employment, disability, real estate, probate and numerous other business litigation matters.
A Board Certified Specialist in Appellate Practice and Chair of Shook’s Florida/Eleventh Circuit Appellate Practice Team, Dan has briefed and argued more than 50 appeals in Florida, as well as multiple federal and state appellate courts across the country.
He has also tried jury and non-jury cases in state, federal and administrative courts.
He has substantial experience litigating employment matters, including wage-and-hour claims as well as those involving claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
For example, he obtained a dismissal with prejudice, with no payment made to plaintiff, in a suit against a manufacturer alleging off-the-clock overtime.
In another case, he was able to obtain a favorable settlement of a wage-and-hour suit in which claims were related to working during lunch breaks and managerial classification.
Dan has written and lectured about appeals, class action, legal ethics, expert witnesses and emerging issues in environmental law. He also devotes significant time to pro bono efforts, having helped those who cannot afford legal representation with their criminal, immigration, probate and family law problems.
Dan also serves on the Miami-Dade County Planning Advisory Board, the county’s designated local planning agency and the main advisory board to the Board of County Commissioners on matters related to planning, annexations and incorporations.
