He has been lead counsel in a large number of national class actions. Roman's practice areas include Appellate Advocacy, the Fair Labor Standards Act, Civil Fraud, Predatory Lending and Finance. He has successfully handled cases in over 15 states and litigated in over 30 federal jurisdictions around the country.
Roman has successfully handled oral arguments and won important appellate victories in the Alabama Supreme Court, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. He has also authored a number of papers and seminar topics concerning Civil Fraud, the Fair Labor Standards Act, Predatory Lending and Professionalism. He often speaks at Continuing Legal Education seminars on these topics. Notably, Roman has also sat for, and passed, six different state bar exams.
Roman is very active in the Alabama State Bar. He is a past president of the Young Lawyers Section of the Alabama State Bar and the past Chairman of the Admissions Ceremony Committee.

He has also represented the State of Alabama at several American Bar Association Conferences and is a graduate of the Alabama State Bar's Leadership Forum program. Roman has been fortunate enough to accept the Alabama State Bar's Pro Bono Award two out of the last four years on behalf of work his committees have done in their efforts to help Hurricane Katrina victims and also law enforcement personnel with their wills.
As an undergraduate at the University of Alabama, Roman received a four-year debate team scholarship and subsequently received All-American honors in his senior season. While on the debate team at Alabama, he helped them win two National Forensic Team Championships.
