Matthew Rogenes focuses on catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, and environmental pollution cases.
The son of a preacher from northeastern Montana, Matt graduated from Glasgow High School before attending the University of Montana where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in History. After college, Matt worked in the North Dakota oilfields, where he witnessed first-hand how environmental and worker-safety regulations are disregarded for the true company line – profits. This inspired Matt to go into law to ensure accountability for those who choose to ignore their obligations toward human health and environmental stewardship. Matt has experience litigating oilfield pollution cases, personal injury cases, and wrongful death cases.
Matt received his J.D., from Tulane University Law School. During his time at Tulane, Matt received honors in Trial Advocacy. He was an active member of the Tulane Environmental Law Program, and a student attorney for the Tulane Domestic Violence Clinic. Matt also worked as a research assistant for Professor Oliver Houck. He served as a law clerk for the District Attorney’s Office in Juneau, Alaska, as well as Stag Liuzza L.L.C.
Outside the courtroom, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife Elise, and daughter Jeanne.
