Lawyer and Founder
Douglas “Doug” Rohan, Esq. has been practicing law in Georgia for over two decades. He graduated from Florida State University’s Law School in 2000, the same university he received his English Literature degree from in 1996. As the son of a Cuban-born mother, Doug speaks fluent Spanish, as does the entire staff. As a past member of the Board of Directors of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO), Doug works to promote the civic engagement of the Latin American and Hispanic communities. As a frequent commentator on Telemundo Atlanta, he speaks about the impact legal matters have on the Latino community. Doug’s appearance on Spanish television has helped countless families understand legal issues and laws that affect them.
Doug used his passion for advocacy on behalf of the Hispanic community to open his own firm, Rohan Law, in 2011, with a focus on ensuring that the underrepresented Latino market had a trusted voice that would aggressively fight for their rights in a country where many of them didn’t speak the language or have any knowledge about their rights under the law. He advocated strongly against the proposed HB87 legislation which would have criminalized his efforts to ensure his injured clients received proper medical attention. This stance spring boarded him onto a platform in the community as a strong advocate for injustice, and lead to a robust client base for both civil and criminal matters.
Through Mundo Hispanico, formerly the AJC’s Hispanic division, he has worked with reporter Mario Guevarra in both the print media and Mundo Hispanico’s social media web channel to discuss the particular and most pressing needs of the newspaper’s Latin American community. Viewed as a voice for the Latino community in Georgia, Doug has been called upon to speak live on Café CNN, where his legal analysis and Latino advocacy message were heard world-wide, throughout the Spanish language morning news markets. As an active member of the Cobb County and Gwinnett County Bar Associations, Doug seeks to provide the perspective of the Hispanic community for the professional organizations.
Additionally, Doug is on the Executive Committee of the Georgia Injured Workers Association (GIWA), where he helps define and shape policy within the state legislature benefiting the injured worker. He is also a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyer’s Association (GTLA), the National Trial Lawyers Association (NTLA), the Georgia Hispanic Bar Association (GHBA), and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
In his newest adventure, he started a professional podcast in 2020 titled Radio Rohan. This podcast, broadcast serially in both Spanish and English, has been a tool to help educate the community about complex legal matters and issues in a way the local news broadcast simply doesn’t have time to explore. During the onset of the COVID pandemic, tens of thousands of live viewers tuned in to understand what impact the Governor’s emergency order would have on their life as the state began to close down. Follow up research determined that 8 out of 10 Hispanic household ultimately took the time to review some or all of the information that was shared. The podcast continues to provide relevant details on a wide range of issues.
Doug is a lifelong learner and looks for ways to combine his passions. He earned his private pilot license, a skill he uses to extend his services to the citizens beyond the Atlanta metro area. When Doug isn’t flying around with his cape on saving the world, he enjoys going on dates with Julia, his wife of over 20 years, and playing with his three girls, who totally own him.
