Divorce
Joy, she’s my attorney and ANGEL that was there for me at the worst time of my life, She’s compassionate, very knowledgeable of the Laws and most of all no financial pressure. She was always available via phone, email or office visit to listen to my concerns and give great advise and recommendations. Needless to say, a very happy outcome in my divorce proceedings….. She’s the BEST!

Permanent Residency
Anyone dealing with any type of Immigration issue knows how stressful it can be. Joy has helped both my husband and I throughout our entire process so far. With her help, my husband and I both have legal status here. Joy has been there to answer any question or concern we've had for the last 8-9 yrs. If you are looking for someone that doesn't just see a client, but sees you as a person. She puts in the work to get you the answers you need. She's trustworthy and very reliable. Joy is certainly worth all 5 stars! We were incredibly fortunate to find her.

Consultation
La abogada Joy es un ser humano increíble, tiene un corazón de oro. La primera consulta es TOTALMENTE GRATIS, pero aun así, ella nos dio mas información que muchos abogados que cobran carísimo por la primera consulta. Tiene muchísima experiencia, ha logrado resultados excelentes en casos super complejos. Te explica todo de una manera tan clara que es un alivio. Se preocupo de entender bien nuestro caso y nos dio varias opciones. La ultra recomiend!!! Es la unica persona a la que acudiria para cualquier asunto de inmigración. 10/10 !

Citizenship
She is simply amazing! Understanding, caring, very supportive to your goals and dreams for becoming an American. Extremely professional, listens, gives sound confidential advice, returns calls/ emails promptly, submits all documents and paperwork to US immigration accurately, and in a very timely manner, never late. Outstanding person, lawyer, service! It is because of her guidance, and legal advice and direction, I am proud to say I was sworn in as a United States Of America citizen recently. A dream of mine since a little girl.

Before hiring Joy I called her for a free consultation regarding information about obtaining a green card. She gave straight no nonsense answers and I decided to hire her to facilitate the process. She is very thorough and straight forward, prepares you well for the interview.

I had a great experience with Joy. She helped my husband to get his green card. There is no way we would've been able to do it without her. The legal system is so complicated, and she really streamlined the process so that we could get it done in the shortest amount of time possible.

Professional but yet reachable
My husband and I used attorney Rothenberger's services almost two years ago. Prior to meeting Joy I had hired another attorney to assist us in our case. That decision turned out to be a complete nightmare, had it not been for the professional services of Joy our situation would have still been a disaster. She handled our case with such attention to detail answering every question and addressing each concern. Her years of experience and knowledge in regards to the various laws was astounding. I would feel very comfortable recommending her services to anyone with the certainty that she will get the job done.
