About me

I understand that the need to hire an attorney may happen at one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. I believe an attorney is supposed to make life easier for clients; I am here to takethe stress and confusion out of the legal process and help to relieve some of your burden. I am very passionate about my clients' legal issues. At the Law Office of Joy E. Rothenberger, each and every client is treated as if they were the only client. I pride myself on ensuring that each client receives high quality legal services while they are guided through the legal maze of immigration and family law.

I truly believe in Equal Justice and a Quality Representation for "all"
