Pedro V. Roig, Esq.

Roig holds an undergraduate and master’s degree from the University of Miami and earned his Juris Doctorate from St. Thomas University. Following law school, Roig had the privilege of being mentored by a Miami legal icon, attorney Burton Young.

Roig’s professional career is diverse. He is not only an attorney, but also a historian, educator, author, and champion of advancing human rights and individual liberties. At a young age, Roig fled from the communist Cuban state and is a veteran of the Assault Brigade 2506 – the group of Cuban exiles that fought to overthrow the communist Cuban regime in the battle known as the “Bay of Pigs.” He has written several books including “Death of a Dream,” a comprehensive history of Cuba, as well as the “Cuban War of Independence 1895—1898.”

In 1991, Roig was appointed by President George H.W. Bush to the National Advisory Board of Education, where he served for four years. In 2003, Roig was appointed by President George W. Bush as Director of the Office of Cuban Broadcasting (Radio and Television Marti). On June 11, 2003, Roig testified before the United States House of Representatives Committee on International Relations and in September 2010 he received the Superior Accomplishment Award from the National Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) for his outstanding leadership in fulfilling Radio and TV Marti’s mission. In 2011, Roig joined the Institute of Cuban and Cuban-American Studies (ICCAS) at the University of Miami.
