Langdon & Emison congratulates attorney Danielle Rogers for receiving the 2022 Women’s Justice Litigation Practitioner Award at a ceremony hosted by Missouri Lawyers Media Thursday, May 12 at the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis.
The Women’s Justice Award celebrates and recognizes women in all facets of the law who exhibit the core principles of leadership, professionalism, accomplishment and passion for making a difference. Danielle was recognized for being a fierce advocate for the trial-by-jury system and for making her career in the courtroom.
“Danielle’s path to the courtroom is unlike most attorneys and tells a story of public service, determination and commitment to carrying out the highest ideals of the legal profession,” said L&E founding partner Kent Emison.”
Prior to joining Langdon & Emison, Danielle spent six years as a solo practitioner focusing on criminal, domestic, probate and civil matters. She also represented the interests of children who had been placed in the State’s custody because home life was not safe for them. And, in the same world, she represented parents who simply needed help and worked relentlessly to have their children returned to their care.
In 2010, Danielle was elected as the Ray County Prosecuting Attorney, the first female elected to that office and the youngest full-time prosecutor in Missouri at that time. During her term from 2011 to 2014, she tried nine felony jury trials – possession of drugs, murder, sexual assault of minors and child custody, among others.
Danielle joined Langdon & Emison in 2021, bringing a depth of litigation experience to the firm. As a trial attorney in the firm’s mass tort division, Danielle dedicates her work to helping people who have been wrongfully harmed by corporations that put profits before human safety.
“Danielle deeply believes in the cases she litigates,” said Kent Emison. “And, that belief drives her pursuit of justice on behalf of clients who are privileged to have her on their side.”
Family members and L&E colleagues joined Danielle in St. Louis when she accepted the award. We congratulate her on this well-deserved honor.
