Former Assistant United States Attorney Joshua L. Rogers Joins Sands Anderson in North Carolina

Durham, NC (February 13, 2024) – Sands Anderson PC today announced Joshua L. Rogers has joined the firm as Counsel. Rogers helps small- and medium-sized companies and governmental entities create healthy work environments where management and staff flourish together. He will be based in Sands Anderson’s Durham office.

As a member of Sands Anderson’s Employment Team, Rogers will counsel North Carolina companies on a wide range of employment law issues including internal investigations, accommodation requests, employee complaints, and other personnel decisions.

He is also a skilled litigator whose clients appreciate his ability to guide them from the earliest stages of an administrative complaint through trial and the appellate process. His wealth of experience includes litigating claims under Title VII, the ADA, ADEA, and Pregnancy Discrimination Act, as well as Section 1983.

Before entering private practice, Joshua served for nearly two decades with the U.S. Department of Justice, defending federal agencies at all stages of litigation. While there, he conducted investigations into the circumstances surrounding employment claims, recommended corrective measures, and advised management on litigation risks. He also represented management interests in discovery, at trial, and in appeals.

“Joshua is a talented employment attorney and capable litigator who will expand our firm’s abilities to better serve clients on a variety of matters in North Carolina,” said Firm President Margaret F. Hardy. “We are delighted to welcome him and excited about the continued expansion of our Durham office.”

The Durham office of Sands Anderson welcomed Ashley L. Anderson, an attorney focused on community economic development and public finance, just last month.

Rogers received his juris doctor from the University of Mississippi School of Law and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern Mississippi. He can be reached at
