Landlord Tenant Consultation
I consulted with Mrs. Rothbort and she is simply "Amazing"! She is thorough and empathetic to your cause. She listens and speaks knowledgeable about your tenancy, in regards to your legal standing. It is comforting to find a legal confidant, with an open ear and the knowledge, to traverse the landscape of your issues. Speaking with Mrs. Rothbort, will, in my humble opinion, give any client the credence and confidence to move forward in a manner that will solidify their legal foundation, in their current matter, as well as setting the footprint for any future legal matters, they may face. May I send a virtual "Round of Applause", as she is truly the doyenne of the real estate/landlord tenant legal sector.

Answered my tenant related question
Ms Rothbort is so knowledgeable and empathetic towards phone calls. She doesn't seem like those lawyers who will talk to you in bits and pieces so they can shell out some money from you. She should be some kind of a role model for all lawyers here. Polite and accesible. She helped me to decide whether I wanted to hire a lawyer or talk to my landlord straight. Her tips helped me.

Knowledgeable and patient lawyer
Mrs Rothbort totally impressed me during my first phone consultation regarding my issue with tenant. She patiently listened and explained the possible options with respective steps/timeline. I felt informed and educated, and more importantly helped. Thank you!

This is the lawyer you want
On our first phone call, Mrs. Rothbort guided me to answers for nearly fifteen questions regarding the landlord-tenant issues my partner and I have been experiencing in Millburn, NJ. She has a wonderful demeanor and took the time to explain New Jersey anti-eviction law to me. Nearly all but 3 of our issues have since been resolved to our satisfaction and she even found a couple of items that needed correction on our lease renewal. A lease renewal that without her expertise, would not have happened. She even took the time to locate information that I was able to provide to my landlord showing him that he would be violating federal law by discriminating against me under the soldiers and sailors relief act. He changed his stance quickly and we are satisfied with the results. Thanks again Layni!

Knows Her Stuff
Layni was the third lawyer to respond to my landlord/tenant question, but the FIRST to answer correctly. Our correspondence was short, but without the informative, relevant and (most importantly) CORRECT information Layni provided, I would not have looked into the matter further. Since then I have found the clause my landlord violated, and will be pursuing legal action against him. What he did was not right, and if I can prevent him from wrongly evicting another good tenant in the future, than any time spent on my part is worth it. Thank you for your advice!!!

Nurse consultant
Amazing client service skills. Demonstrated effective listening and guided me to the right direction in just one contact call. Level of wisdom and real estate knowledge is impeccable. Possess great integrity and was very willing to help. What could have cost me thousands of dollars she pointed me in the right direction and it was handled free of charge with the designated parties. Honest business practices and a willingness to help is definitely a model I believe mrs. Rothbort practices.

Landlord/tenant issue
Was very helpful with my issue. We emailed back and forth and she was nice enough to give me another angle to review about proper procedures for security deposits and what I should look for.

Excellent Attorney! Clear and concise. Well informed. Great communication skills.
We contacted Layni with landlord tenant matters, after contacting other attorneys that did not have the answers we needed. Layni repeatedly demonstrated to us that she knew her business very well, had the answers we needed, and communicated with clarity.

Layni S Rothbort is an expert in such field with Real Estate Landlord Tenancy in NJ. Best there is In my own consensus!!!!
I had a slimy landlord who promise one amount to avoid us having to go to court, and had proof of him saying such clear relevant statement,and how he will void all of the owed-months prior to,however,he then lied to a shady atty. he had hired(lawyer he hired has a history of doing things himself that he was not suppose to do as a "lawyer."In any event, Layni made sure she protected our family rights,and was wonderful! We will be utilizing her for all transactions for buying one day our home 2016 in the winter,or sooner! and utilizing her if we need her again for another landlord who attempt to be shady and not truthful et.al., she is wonderful astute,knowledgeable and clearly a "real lawyer"who care,and who knows the nj law inside out. MORE lawyers should be like her.God bless her,and her family. Thanks again Layni!

Professional, Helpful, Outstanding
Through her services, Layni provided a straightforward, minimum stress solution to a difficult international legal situation involving several members of our family. Her experience and knowledge showed through in every one of our conversations. The advice she provided satisfied every one of us that she represented. We will be coming to Layni first if we ever need legal advice in the future.
