Biography

Born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1947, Roger Ferland served in the US Army in Vietnam in 1968, where he sustained major injuries. Despite his injuries, he went on to graduate with distinction from Duke University Law School in 1974, retiring as a distinguished environment law attorney in 2014. An active member of Disabled American Veterans, Roger worked tirelessly with DAV leaders to establish free legal clinics for veterans in 2013 by signing up 200 attorneys to work veterans’ legal issues pro bono, and scheduling the clinics. Roger’s additional community service includes more than 1,000 hours volunteering with the Phoenix Symphony, Audubon Arizona, and the US VETS Phoenix Advisory Board. Roger Ferland is a living testament to the attitude, “If one is disabled, it does not mean that one is incapable.”
