Smith Hulsey & Busey shareholder Joseph W. Rogan has been named by the Jacksonville Business Journal to its 2020 “40 Under 40” list.
The honorees were picked from a record number of nominees in consultation with Jacksonville’s business leaders. They represent a range of industries and backgrounds, but they’re united in their desire to help the First Coast grow into the best community it can be.
“Joe deserves this recognition,” said firm chairman Steve Busey. “Joe was recently elected a partner in the firm at the age of 30, one of the youngest shareholders in our recent history. His initiative and dedication to clients and to our community is remarkable — he’s definitely one to watch in the Jacksonville business world.”
Rogan focuses his practice on the resolution of complex business disputes and on creditors’ rights. His experience includes representation in banking, finance and fiduciary relationships and in the property management, development, logistics and construction industries.
Rogan also volunteers on pro bono cases from Jacksonville Area Legal Aid to help those in need across the First Coast who can’t afford legal counsel, and he helps veterans with disability compensation claims.
The Chief Judge of the Fourth Judicial Circuit appointed Rogan to the Jacksonville Ethics Commission in 2017. The Commission considers ethics complaints against city officials and employees. Rogan is now in his second term as the Commission’s chair.
Prior to practicing law, Rogan served eight years in the Military Police Corps of the U.S. Army Reserve. As a team leader on a Police Transition Team in Iraq, he spent ten months as an advisor to the Iraqi police, teaching operations and internal, intelligence and criminal investigations.Follow us on for more content updates
