Jerry has gone above and beyond our expectations. His ability to keep his hand on the pulse of the ever changing eldercare landscape combined with his true desire to guide us seemlessly through many difficult decisions has been the answer to our prayers.
After suuccessfully raising ten children the time has come to put mom & dads needs first by providing the best care we could find. Not an easy task on your own. We had questions about the new laws, healthcare, the finances and their wills. We really needed help when dad ended up in assisted living after a hospital stay. Life would not be the same. So many concerns and questions. Having a large family there were a lot of opinions of what should happen to mom with a big empty house with dad in a home needing care.
The pressure was tremendous and the clock was ticking. We knew the money wouldn't last forever and we were worried about moms security and her peace of mind.
A few months into the process we were introduced to Jerry by our local attorney's office manager. She has worked with Jerry professionally for 20 years and assured us that it was the right step for us to take.
From our first meeting with Jerry and members of his team we felt immediate relief. The process was quick and easy as we all got together at once to help determine mom and dads care plan and how to preserve their hard earned retirement funds.
Many of the mysteries simply dissolved and the action steps to take were clear!
In the following months the Rothkoff Law Group guided us every step of the way as dad needed more care and moms house seemed to get bigger.
We have been able to reach out anytime with questions or as a new problem popped up. Each time there has been someone from Jerry's office there for us, first to listen and then to help us through.
With Jerry's help :
We have successfully secured the right care for both mom and dad.
We have put their finances in order.
Handled all legal issues or questions.
Updated their wills.
Created solid plans for their future allowing for unexpected changes and events.
I would not change a thing if I had to do it all over again , Rothkoff Law Group was and is clearly the solution to our families eldercare needs. The compassion was there to support us when needed and the legal strategy put us on track and is still working well for us.
After this experience I would never go it alone when it comes to being responsible for my parents well being and security....
I appreciate the hours of hard work that was put in both in the office and in the field by the entire team. Great job!
I Give Jerry Five Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
and would like to express our deepest appreciation!

My parents hired Jerry and his team around 9 months ago and it was one of the best decisions they ever made.
My dad has Alzheimer's disease and my mom decided they needed to think about moving to assisted living. Janie and other members of the team gave suggestions on assisted living facilities to consider based on their situation. When they needed help in the interim they recommended excellent home care services. My parents are now in an assisted living facility and Janie continues to advocate for them and help in every aspect of their care. She treats them like they are members of her own family.
Besides the amazing service the firm provides regarding my parents' living situation and care, they also assist with processing of the long term care insurance claims. Jacinda has been wonderful working with the insurance company and has saved us countless hours by handling this.
The administrative staff is also great to deal with.
The scope and depth of their service surprised me, they are so much more than a law firm. That's why I would highly recommend them.

Seven years ago my husband descended into the depths of Alzheimers disease. I had to make quick decisions about his future (and mine). I tried to get information from the Veterans Administration for help to no avail and was in a state of despair when I learned about the Rothkoff practice.
Through all this time their help was immeasurable. The very competent and compassionate staff led me through the jungle of regulations and paperwork associated with all the government agencies involved. The details were dizzying. In the end, my husband was placed in assisted living and nursing homes that were close to my home. With the assistance of the Rothkoff firm, they were responsive to all of his needs and I am confident he is getting the best care possible. The beauty of the practice is the way it is organized. The experts on staff deal specifically with the different agencies involved (social security, Veterans Administration, nursing homes, etc.) There are regular care conferences scheduled to answer questions you may have about the care your loved one is receiving. Believe me, when Rothkoff speaks, they listen.
I could go on, but just let me say having the Rothkoff team on my side was invaluable in relieving the anxiety this huge undertaking creates. I will be forever grateful to the Rothkoff practice.

Jerry and his team are beyond fantastic, especially Janie. My family has been incredibly pleased with their attentiveness, care and knowledge. We only wished that we had met Jerry earlier than we did. We highly recommend his services.

I recently engaged Jerry Rothkoff and his team. I can honestly say this has been the best client service experience. He and his team are knowledgeable, responsive and very caring with what has been a very difficult time for my family and me. I highly recommend him for anyone's elder care needs.

We worked with Mr. Rothkoff and his staff for 3 years. Valuable information was provided quickly whenever we called - information about programs for the elderly was provided in a concise and understandable manner. Response to our inquiries was provided in 24 hours or less. We would definitely refer friends to this firm.

Jerry handled my parents affairs for several years and provided a broad spectrum of services at a fair price. Jerry has a staff of experts in several areas including veterans benefits and social service that I found to be extremely helpful. They were able to work through the very difficult process of obtaining veterans benefits for my father and help resolve issues that I could not. Their social service associates spent time understanding my mother's situation in her home and offered numerous helpful suggestions. They were also very kind to my mother in stressful times and earned her trust where few others have been able to do so. Jerry's office was also very good about notifying the family about upcoming dates, and deadlines and scheduled regular follow up review meetings.

As a legal professional with some familiarity in the field, I came to the Rothkoff law office to address my parents' situation last year. I have been working with the firm as a client since that time. I must say that I agree with the recent prior reviews. All of the staff is professional, responsive and caring. Specifically I don't know what I would have done without the help of Janie, Alicia and Amy Jo. There are many twists and turns and ever evolving issues with aging parents.
I have known Mr. Rothkoff for several years, but did not know the magnitude of the service provided until I needed it myself.

I was in need of an elder care law firm when we had to find a long term care facility early in 2013. With no prior experience in working with this type of lawyer, I was unsure what to expect. After several hours of hearing from Jerold Rothkoff and his staff, I felt more convinced that I had made the right decision to use them. Why? They were very forthright in their presentation and approach; were experts in the field of Medicare, knowledgeable in the area of nursing homes and rehab facilities in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and would attend any patient care conferences in the facility of our choice.
As soon as I contracted with them, we worked closely with them. With their streamlined process of gathering personal information needed to set up the account, it was quite easy for me to pull together what they needed. We reviewed that my father would not benefit from a VA facility and looked at all possible local area rehab/nursing facilities.
His administrative staff was very efficient and set up follow up appointments and calls. The two key people I dealt with were Alicia Kagan for Medicare benefits and Janie De Leon-Male who attended all patients care meetings. Each person was critical in getting my father on Medicare and Medicaid and visiting the facility when I was not there and communicating with the management there.
Now that my father is on Medicaid and in the right facility, I am very satisfied that he is in good hands where he is. I feel confident that by using an experienced and highly motivated elder care law firm, all the expectations and needs that I had were handled and I am very happy with the outcome.
I would absolutely recommend this law firm to anyone who needs guidance and action concerning their elder family members.

Jerry Rothkoff and his team of experienced professionals worked diligently over the past 7 years to assist both my father and my mother with their elder care needs and legal assistance. While they are both now deceased, I am ever-grateful for the guidance, resources and exceptional service provided as both of my parents' needs progressed based on their health and economic conditions. From applying for Veteran's Benefits and Medicaid assistance through locating appropriate personal care and nursing home facilities, I was thoroughly impressed by the level of dedication and professionalism, prompt follow-through and knowledge demonstrated by Jerry and his staff. This type of guidance and legal services inclusive of planning through the end their lives was invaluable. Being a caregiver to both parents is a huge responsibility and having help every step of the way is truly a gift. I am so thankful that my parents selected the Rothkoff Law Group to handle their elder care needs.
