Megan Delaney Rogers, a native of Southern Louisiana and proud graduate of Louisiana State University, graduated cum laude from St. Mary's School of Law, San Antonio, Texas in 2003. She was a member of Phi Delta Phi honor fraternity and the John M. Harlan Society for distinguished graduates. For the past several years, Megan has focused her practice on elder law, estate planning and probate, along with real estate title issues.
Megan's strong belief in fairness and advocacy, as well as her ability to see issues from all sides (and debate her opinion) first brought her to the law as a young child. It was her strong desire to advocate for others and belief in doing what is right and fair that drew her to property law. After that, it was an easy transition to expand to estate planning and then elder law, about which she has become passionate.
Most of all, Megan enjoys educating those she comes into contact with about areas of the law that affect them and potential pitfalls for the unwary, helping people to plan intentionally and informed rather than unknowingly make costly errors in their treatment of their property and planning for the future. She enjoys working with blended families to help them workout estate planning to avoid conflict and missteps in the future. She has helped many newly married older adults with separate property to avoid commingling their property and creating issues with property transfer after death, assisting people to avoid probate altogether or lessen the need for probate, and helping families retain as much generational wealth as they can rather than spend it on long term care and avoid missteps in planning.
Megan has been actively involved in the Kyle/Buda area, being a past and present member of boards for the Kyle Area Chamber of Commerce, City of Kyle, and the Plum Creek HOA. She has served in various ways with the Hays Band Boosters and Hays Hills Baptist Church.
Megan and her husband John have lived in Kyle for more than 20 years where they raised their three children. They have a heart for foster and adoption, as their youngest two children were adopted after being fostered. Their children are now young adults and Megan and John are focusing on growing Rogers Law and giving back to the community.
Every client who faces legal problems needs counsel that is tailored to their specific needs. No two clients or situations are identical. When you work with me, you can expect:
- My personal attention: My job title, attorney and counsel at law, is an accurate description of the relationships I work to build with my clients. Beginning with our initial consultation, I spend time identifying your priorities and understanding your specific needs. Often clients in need of legal services are stressed and emotional, requiring an attorney who is sensitive to their state and I seek to provide support throughout the process.
- Availability: Your calls are very important. When you call my firm, you will talk to a person. When we are not in the office and you leave a message, you will get a return call as soon as possible. All phone messages are transcribed, so we are able to return your call and will do so even when out of the office.
- Realistic expectations: I can never guarantee the outcome of your legal case. However, I can guarantee that I will be there to represent you to the best of my ability. Throughout our case, I will work closely with you to set realistic expectations about the process and the likely outcome of our case, along with a cost/benefit analysis, where you will decide whether it is worthwhile to you to work towards a specific outcome.
I look at the practice of law as my way to serve the community. I want to develop relationships with my clients so they can be proactive, rather than reactive, when legal issues arise. I want to be a part of your family, just as you will become part of mine.
