“My favorite thing about working for CR Legal Team is the opportunity to be part of a whole team of people who are working toward a common goal, which is to assist our clients in winning their cases and easing their burdens of navigating the legal system in order to achieve their own goals.”
With her zest for persuading people to see things through another’s eyes and doing so herself, Heather Rogers energizes and motivates herself, her coworkers, and her clients to learn how other people view the world and why they make the decisions they do. She loves sharing what she has learned to bring people together and to help people find commonalities. Heather truly believes that most people are working toward similar goals, and having learned that she finds we all often have more in common than we may think. She feels if we share our viewpoints with others, we may learn better ways to reach our personal goals and may become more empathetic toward others who do not share our same views. Practicing law has been a great way for her to experience this professionally.
Heather received her Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Indiana State University and her Juris Doctor from Thomas M. Cooley Law School at Western Michigan University where she attended on an honors scholarship. During her time there she also served in a legal externship for the Washtenaw County Public Defender’s Office in Ann Arbor.
Heather enjoys listening to live music, hiking, traveling, and attending the annual conference, Expanding the Vision, of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives.
She has admissions to practice law in North Carolina, Tennessee, and the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee and is a member of the North Carolina State Bar and the Tennessee State Bar.
