I've worked with lawyers where you start with the gatekeeper on the phone which inevitably leads to the lawyer seeing how much money that they can make before they decide if it's worth it. Then they charge you $250 for 30 minutes on the phone waiting for you to decide while they only pay attention to 20% of what you say. Then you hire them, they never call you back, meanwhile your retainers flying out the window, you're frustrated, etc., etc.
Joel was kind enough to speak with me over the phone, offered guidance after hearing what I was up against and actually called me back to refer a colleague who he thought might be better suited to help me.
Top notch - would definitely recommend. Thanks again Joel!

Mr. Rothman worked diligently over the past year to file a patent infringement case for me. He ultimately was unable to file suit but he was a pleasure to work with. He was unlike an attorney I have known. He is extremely knowledgable and caring and is not motivated by money. I would recommend anyone looking for an honest attorney to work with him.

Mr. Rothman has handled several patent, trademark and trade dress matters for me in the past few years. He resolved each of the matters quickly and economically.
Joel is very knowledgeable and professional. He treats the opposition respectfully and does not engage in unnecessary posturing. His approach defuses emotionally charged situations and creates an environment where rational negotiations can take place. I firmly believe his approach saved my company a great deal of money and cut short what could have been protracted and costly litigation.
Joel is a creative problem solver. He takes the time to listen and fully understand our corporate concerns. The result is a resolution that remedies the immediate problem and also serves our longer term corporate goals.
Over the years, Joel has also provided solid legal advice. Unlike other lawyers I have dealt with, Joel does not simply tell you what he thinks you want to hear. He listens to your proposed course of action and then carefully explains why the approach will or will not work. He has the excellent perspective to see potential problems and suggest ways to avoid them.
While no one enjoys the threat of litigation, knowing that Joel is available to assist makes the threat far less daunting. I highly recommend Joel and his partner, Jerry. Both are true gentlemen and a credit to the legal profession. Thank you both for all your help!

Attorney Rothman did a great job on my case as he continually over came each obstacle with his depth, knowledge and understanding of not only my case but the laws surrounding my case. It was clear to me that at every turn he had anticipated were the case was going and was well prepared. I am very pleased with his service and impressed by his professionalism and acute followup. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney.

My wife's employer was forcing a decision upon her that was not fair or she would be terminated. I reached out to Joel's office based on the reviews on this website. Joel was familiar with the condition, and had a couple of options for us. With Joel's connections he was able to get our case to people who had more pull and was able to get the result we were going for. Joel was extremely responsive, had great ideas, and kept us informed throughout the entire process. The reviews on this website are no joke, he is the real deal.

Joel handled a combined intellectual property and employment/labor case for me. I had moved the case to his firm from another firm where I felt I was not making satisfactory progress.
Extremely quick study. He was able to grasp the complex interrelationships between the two cases quicker than I had believed possible in order to move the cases forward in a very timely manner. We worked together for a year and a half on the two cases. I believe he achieved the best possible outcome for me in the circumstances.
I would certainly retain him again and I can honestly recommend him and the other members of his firm without reservation.

We had the occasion recently to use the services of Joel Rothman.
It involved a licensing problem, whereby a large company used an image by one of our artists on their products, without gaining the proper licensing approval.
Mr. Rothman was successful in obtaining an equitable settlement for us. he did so in a timely manner and without going to court.
We found Mr. Rothman to be consistent in keeping us informed of his progress, and extremely knowledgeable of this area of the law.
He was able to bring our complaint to a speedy resolution, thus minimizing the loss of productive time and cost to us.
We are appreciative of Mr. Rothman's professionalism in representing our interests.
We highly recommend him for anyone with a licensing issue.

Recommending Joel is the easiest thing I could do- because he was only helpful, well informed and extremely knowledgeable on intellectual property law. A process and a situation that could be so difficult and frustrating, he transformed into a tolerable ordeal. It seemed as though he was always three steps ahead of the other side, defending and fighting for my rights. He was very well versed in all of the copyright laws and the intricacies of the scams that people can engage in on the internet; and was able to explain them to me and my team so that we could be well informed on our rights. He was able to find the needle in the haystack when my case was dependent on it, and he did everything in his power to ensure that justice was served and my property would remain protected. I would not hesitate a second to send anyone who needs a strong, intelligent and dedicated attorney to Joel. And I will not hesitate to ever seek his counsel again if I may need it. Not only have I found a wonderful attorney resource, I now have a friend that always has my back.

We recommend Atty. Joel Rothman based on our experience with him as our lawyer serving a group of investors against an unlawful practice by a real estate company. Throughout the case which lasted for approximately 5 years, Atty. Rothman displayed openness, truthfulness, and sincerity which gained our trust for his handling our case. With his knowledgeable guidance, the case against this company was mediated and eventually settled to our satisfaction. We are thankful and grateful to Atty. Rothman for his successful legal help to our group.
