Jannea Rogers Reappointed to Alabama State Bar's Service Members & Veterans Support Task Force

September 26, 2018

Adams and Reese is pleased to announce Jannea Rogers, a partner in the firm’s Mobile, Alabama office, has been reappointed to serve on the Alabama State Bar’s Service Members & Veterans Support Task Force for the 2018–2019 bar year. Rogers was reappointed to her role by Alabama State Bar President Sam W. Irby in August and has served as a member of this task force since 2017.

The Service Members & Veterans Support Task Force aims to create and sustain various programs and resources for the benefit of veterans and service members, as well as their families. The task force works in conjunction with a number of organizations to provide training for lawyers to serve veterans and their families and raise awareness of and support for legal services for veterans and service members.

Rogers is a longtime devotee of her time and talents to legal services for veterans and service members. She has served as the Adams and Reese liaison to the American Bar Association (ABA) Military Pro Bono Project since its inception. The ABA program screens active duty military members’ legal matters and makes a roster of opportunity available to participating law firms. Adams and Reese has assisted military families in the states in which the firm has offices, providing pro bono assistance to both individuals who serve in the military as well as their families.

“Giving back to military families through pro bono service is an issue that is close to my heart,” said Rogers. “My father served in the Air Force during WWII and my husband served 17 years in the military. I am proud to serve other military families by raising awareness for issues related to those who have served our country and dedicating my time and skills to those causes,” she added.

Rogers is an experienced litigator and trial lawyer who has advised clients in civil and complex commercial litigation in Alabama, Florida and Georgia. She defends clients in cases involving construction defects, product and premises liability, professional malpractice, health care facilities (nursing, assisted living, and hospice), D&O liability and insurance coverage, and commercial liability, including bad faith claims and transportation and marine litigation. She received her J.D. from the Cumberland School of Law in 1989 and her B.S. from Spring Hill College in 1985.
