What are the signs of a dedicated law firm?
When the lawyers work hundreds of hours on a case that won't make them rich, but will set a precedent for persons who have been severely injured, but not in a way that state law recognizes.
That's Mark Rodgers of Rodgers Law Office, of Bemidji. The case involved teachers who were caught in the crossfire during a violent school shooting at Red Lake High School in 2005. Mark made it his mission to have the post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that marred the lives of those teachers be compensated the same as any other serious on-the-job injury.
He succeeded, and Mark Rodgers was honored with the distinction of Minnesota Lawyer Magazine's Attorney of the Year Award in 2012.
"My dad was a labor rep and my mom an environmental activist," Mark Rodgers says. "I think their attitudes of 'sticking up for the little guy' carried over to me. All we do is represent workers who have been seriously harmed on the job, and persons who have been seriously injured due to someone's negligence. Our job is helping that average person to obtain justice."
