Wes Rogers, a veteran trial lawyer and State Representative for Clay County, Mo., joins BG Law as a workers’ compensation attorney of counsel. Rogers will use his extensive courtroom experience to obtain favorable results for injured workers.

“I look forward to joining my colleague Blake Green and his outstanding team at BG Law. Together, we’ll be able to help injured workers and hold employers accountable,” Rogers said. “Serving the Northland has been an important part of my career, and it was a priority that I continue to work among neighbors and friends here in North Kansas City.”

After graduating from the University of Missouri School of Law, Rogers became a public defender in Buchanan County. Rogers became an assistant prosecutor in Clay County in 2008, where he tried dozens of jury trials, bench trials, and other evidentiary matters, and worked his way up to become Deputy Chief Assistant Prosecuting Attorney. During his time at the prosecutor's office, Rogers developed a reputation as a fair prosecutor who was willing to stand up for what was right. Rogers brings this same attitude to his workers’ compensation practice. He formed Rogers Law LLC in 2013 and was a solo practitioner until joining BG Law.

Rogers is a member of the Northland Regional Chamber of Commerce, Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association, Clay County Bar Association, Platte County Bar Association, and Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys. He was elected to the Missouri House of Representatives in 2018.

Blake Green, founder and managing attorney at BG Law, welcomed Rogers and the experience he brings to the firm and its clients.

“Wes is a fantastic lawyer, and we are excited to have him onboard. Our clients will benefit from his tenacity and depth of experience,” Green said. “By adding workers’ compensation to our practice, BG Law will be able to serve more people seeking justice in the wake of accidents and debilitating injuries.”

BG Law is an award-winning Northland law firm representing clients throughout Missouri and Kansas for personal injury, accident injury, products liability, wrongful death and workers’ compensation matters. The firm also handles consumer protection class actions.
