Attorney Alex Rogers specializes in representing plaintiffs in investor rights and securities law cases against stock brokers, brokerage firms, broker-dealers, financial managers, and financial institutions. He has obtained substantial economic recovery for clients in cases involving unsuitability, fraud, churning, unauthorized trading, elder financial abuse, and failure to supervise.
Rogers has represented clients in arbitration filed with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the American Arbitration Association (AAA); in state and federal courts; and in mediation.
Rogers spent several years as a Washington, D.C. litigator in securities cases for a leading international law firm, primarily representing prominent brokerage firms and brokers.
Today, Rogers represents plaintiffs, applying his in-depth knowledge of the securities industry, and its common defense theories, on behalf of victims of financial fraud. His experience on both sides of fraud cases makes him uniquely qualified in this area of law.
Rogers graduated from the Columbia University School of Law in 1993, where he served in leadership positions on the Columbia Law Review. Rogers was named a James Kent Scholar (the highest academic honor) and a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar and received the Charles Bathgate Beck and James A. Elkins Prizes. As a member of the Law Review, Rogers authored an article on the Eleventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that has been widely cited by the U.S. Supreme Court, numerous trial and appellate federal courts and constitutional scholars.
From 1993 to 1994, Rogers served as a law clerk to the Honorable David M. Ebel on the U.S. Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit.
Rogers received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Amherst College, where he majored in American Studies and Economics.
Rogers is active in the Wyoming Valley community, having served on numerous boards of directors, including those of the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts (Board Chair), the United Way (Board Chair and Annual Campaign Chair), Leadership Wilkes-Barre, Temple B’nai B’rith (Treasurer), and the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry.
