We are very happy with the services we are receiving from the Rothkoff Law Office In Cherry Hill, NJ
They are helping us with the care of our elderly parents situation. Everyone in the office is an asset.
We have needed help with their financial situation, healthcare, veterans benefits, etc. and Mr. Rothkoff and his large staff are very thorough and helpful.

Jerry is a miracle worker. I had no idea how difficult helping elderly parents could be. Jerry and his staff were there every step of the way. He made sure my father was always taken care of and safe in the nursing home. He made sure that my mother was financially secure for her future. He and his wonderful staff has spent numerous hours working with me. I never once felt alone since Jerry started helping me. He is aware of the emotional toll that Alzheimer's disease has on families. I cannot express how grateful I am for all of his help. Whenever I call the office, someone is always there to help. I have and will recommend Jerry to family and friends. Words cannot express my gratitude towards this wonderful man.

Mr. Rothkoff has an amazing law firm. Everyone who worked with me during my husband's illness was absolutely amazing, and I emphasize amazing!!!! They are extremely knowledgeable and efficient, always going 'above and beyond'. Every question I had was answered ( and I had and still have many), every concern was addressed. I don't know how I could have endured such an extremely stressful situation without their help.
Special thanks are extended to Alicia, David, Jacinda, and Jennifer; and of course to Mr. Rothkoff himself.
I would recommend this firm to anyone treading through the complex, confusing, frustrating waters of elder care.

It was tremendously helpful to have Mr. Rothkoff's guidance, along with the expertise of the members of his firm, in helping to create a life care plan for my mother. I couldn't have managed such a complex process on my own, especially when applying for veteran's benefits. I'll always be grateful and would (and indeed already have!) recommend his services to others.

Jerry and his staff provided me with expert and timely advice and legal services on elder care, including guiding me through the intricacies of several different government programs to assist in paying for long term care. In addition, he has a social worker on staff who provided essential emergency service when I most needed it and expert ongoing support. I recommend him and his team wholeheartedly for anyone who needs elder care legal services/advice, especially in New Jersey.

Approximately a year ago, I experienced what was definitely the most difficult time of my life and marriage. My husband of thirty-six years developed what I will describe as early stage dementia. I was emotionally devastated, and confused and frightened by the medical, financial, and legal decisions I was being asked to make. After consultation with three other lawyers who clearly did not have expertise in the area of Eldercare law, a friend recommended that I contact Jerry's firm. It was a decision I will never regret. Jerry and his staff are competent, compassionate, and professional. Whenever I had a question or concern, my calls were returned promptly, sometimes within the hour! The care consultant who helped me to find placement for my husband spoke to me every day for months! Jerry and his staff helped me to obtain guardianship for my husband, assisted me with finding placement with which my husband was safe and comfortable, and helped me to obtain social security disability benefits, and medicaid benefits. They also helped me to understand how to handle my financial issues , and helped me to feel safe and secure for a future that was a drastic change from my past . Jerry and his staff made a very difficult time in my life easier for me to handle. I can't imagine how I would have gotten through this period of my life without them. I would recommend Jerry and Rothkoff Law Group to anyone who needs assistance with Eldercare law issues without hesitation.

I had the worst experience when I used Mr. Rothkoff to assist with long term care planning for my grandfather. Mr. Rothkoff was abrupt, condescending, and abrasive. While his office staff were nothing but pleasant, his off-putting manners counteracted any rapport my family felt with that office. Here are specific examples of his behavior: 1.) When I asked questions, he would often tell me that either he was not going to answer that yet or ask me what I thought, then say, "Well there's your answer". 2.) Our two hour meeting ended after only an hour and a half, mostly due to his lack of interest in our situation. This was clear by the tone in his voice and the lack of information he supplied. 3.) Rather than staying focused on the task at hand, he spent several minutes in off-topic conversation that did interest him, such as fishing, the restaurants in my neighborhood, etc. Considering the amount of money he was provided for his time, I expected him to not only treat us with respect but also to have substantial information to take away. All in all, I believe the visit was a waste of time. I would not recommend him to anyone seeking support for elder care planning. Someone with better manners and true empathy for the concerns of the family would be a better candidate.

We, as a family, were not prepared for the circumstances that occurred a few months ago. We were in a position where my mother and father needed assistance as they were aging. Jerold Rothkoff was recommended to my brother and I for eldercare law services. Over the past 8 months, this law office has assisted with choosing a facility for my mom, managing financial services for my dad, updating all legal papers and working as an advocate for my mom. All of the members of the law firm have been extremely patient and kind to my family. We would never have known how to handle all the nuances with assisting my parents. Their help has been invaluable.

I can’t say enough about the assistance received from Jerry Rothkoff and his staff, The Kim brothers will always be truly grateful. They made us feel comfortable and very confident that they had our parents’ best interest at heart. I would strongly recommend Jerry and his staff to anyone who has an elderly parent and needs to plan for their long - term care.
Without the help of Jerry, my brothers and I would have been, “up the creek without a paddle”.

From the first day we met Jerry regarding our parents elder care needs he and his wonderful staff have always been attentive to our needs and the needs of our parents.He assigned an associate to handle our parents assisted living needs and she updated us monthly on any issues she thought were important. He also assigned another associate to handle our V.A. claim which took three years to finalize due to the V.A.'s terribly slow process .Finally, Jerry helped structure the family's estate by introducing us to a very good financial planner who was able to consolidate our parents assets into a trust which allowed us to pay for there remaining health and funeral expenses.
