I have been practicing law since 1988 in the areas of Trust and Estates, Commercial Transactions, Real Estate and Taxation. With an undergraduate degree concentrating in CPA accounting and a Master of Business Administration in Corporate Finance coupled with ten years of financial and accounting experience, I offer a broader scope to the practice of law than your average lawyer.

Owner of a consulting corp.
I started with Mr. Rothenberg 7 years ago when I first started my S-corp. Bruce took some time to get to know me, my goals and what I wanted to do with my new consulting business. Directed me to make smart decisions when first starting out and help to guide me since then. He has also helped for business acquisitions I was looking at from a legal and financial review and provided his guidance. I would recommend Bruce Rothenberg for any need or guidance you may need. His golf guidance is also good.

My horrible experience with Bruce Rothenberg
I recently gave up trying to even reach him! Bruce Rothenberg, in my opinion , is not a lawyer that I would suggest anyone hiring. He ignores my phone calls and emails, the only time he gave me any of his time was when I was giving him my credit card info! He basically threw my case into the "ill do it when I have the time" pile. He always told me that it is a process that takes time. But as the months kept flying by without hearing from him or anyone in his office I call up only to hear that it is a process that takes a lot of time. Then (after all the time that I paid for ran out, he tells me that my case isn't going to go anywhere. So he dropped it. I can't even explain how hurt I feel because of this whole episode. When someone hires a lawyer , that person should not feel like his or her case is being thrown into the back of the list . He or she should be replied to when they call or email the attorney. Unfortunately I did not get treated with any kind of respect from Bruce Rothenberg in Bohemia NY.
