What Our Clients Say

“I am the owner of an insurance agency. I was seriously injured in an automobile accident. As you can imagine being in the insurance industry, I know many law firms. For my personal case, I wanted the very best law firm. I knew of the sterling reputation of the Rothenberg Law Firm for their competence, integrity and ability to get me all the compensation that I sought and needed. My high expectations were more than fulfilled. During the course of the litigation there where a number of settlement offers which the firm promptly and dutifully communicated to me and urged me not to accept. They were right. In the end they got me an enormous amount of money for my injuries and loss of earnings; far more than I could have ever imagined. This is a super law firm and I unequivocally recommend them to everyone that has been injured.”
