Ms. Rolen-Ogden's litigation practice includes both trial and appellate experience in the oil, gas and mineral exploration and production industry and in general maritime. Specifically, she handles the defense of traditional oil and gas disputes, legacy suits, personal injury matters and commercial law matters, including the representation of manufacturers and distributors within various industries. She has litigated, handled claims and advised clients involving royalty disputes, unleased owner disputes, servitude disputes and oilfield tort claims, including land damage as well as surface and subsurface restoration suits.

A sample of her representative matters include:
•The successful defense at trial and through the Louisiana Supreme Court of several private oilfield operators from a lawsuit seeking a declaration that alternate unit wells are illegal and seeking damages from the operators
•The successful defense through appeal to the Louisiana Supreme Court of claims relating to mineral ownership disputes based on ownership of fee title versus a servitude of public use over public roadways
•The successful handling and conclusion of cases involving unleased owner demands, royalty demands, unitization and gas marketing issues under Louisiana law for both major and independent oil companies and operators
•The successful defense of an offshore accident by obtaining summary judgment and successfully enforcing defense and indemnity on behalf of a prominent oilfield operator
•The successful defense of an ERISA claim on behalf of a major oil company, which led to dismissal of claims
•The successful conclusion of a legacy case resulting from winning a significant motion in a legacy case involving issues of contractual and tort liability, as well as Louisiana's third party beneficiary doctrine
Ms. Rolen-Ogden's Louisiana Law Review article, “When Administrative Law Judges Rule the World: Wooley v. State Farm,” 66 La. L. Rev. 885 (Spring 2006), has garnered national attention by the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary. The NAALJ reprinted her law review article in the association's national journal, 26 NAALJ 429, Issue No. 2 (Fall 2006).
