We chose Joel (and his team) in August 2015 to help us resolve an Intellectual Property dispute with another company. Our first impressions were that he was easy to contact, easy to talk to and he gave some good recommendations and advice before we decided to take him on. He did seem to know what he was talking about which impressed us and gave us the confidence to proceed. Things moved on quite swiftly and after about 9 weeks we had an out of court settlement to our satisfaction – Job done!
No one could ever say that a good lawyer is cheap, but the words “Good Value” would be appropriate in this case.
As we are a UK company not based in the US, it did seem a little daunting at first to try and find the right US lawyer in this field of work. There are plenty of lawyers coming up on searches and you only have reviews and gut feeling to go on sometimes. Reviews are effectively recommendations, and this is how we came to Joel. He certainly lived up to our expectations.
We consider Joel to be our US lawyer now, and would not hesitate in contacting him again if anything similar needs to be confronted.

I've worked with lawyers where you start with the gatekeeper on the phone which inevitably leads to the lawyer seeing how much money that they can make before they decide if it's worth it. Then they charge you $250 for 30 minutes on the phone waiting for you to decide while they only pay attention to 20% of what you say. Then you hire them, they never call you back, meanwhile your retainers flying out the window, you're frustrated, etc., etc.
Joel was kind enough to speak with me over the phone, offered guidance after hearing what I was up against and actually called me back to refer a colleague who he thought might be better suited to help me.
Top notch - would definitely recommend. Thanks again Joel!

Joel handled a combined intellectual property and employment/labor case for me. I had moved the case to his firm from another firm where I felt I was not making satisfactory progress.
Extremely quick study. He was able to grasp the complex interrelationships between the two cases quicker than I had believed possible in order to move the cases forward in a very timely manner. We worked together for a year and a half on the two cases. I believe he achieved the best possible outcome for me in the circumstances.
I would certainly retain him again and I can honestly recommend him and the other members of his firm without reservation.

We've hired Joel Rothman for our ongoing case for over 5 years where the case was involved trademark and copyright allegations and a bankruptcy court in multiple states.
Joel provided an expert opinion and the strategic planing for the case while keeping the overall client expenses and exposure to a minimum as much as possible.
Great job Joel.. Thank you

Joel has just help us finish a case regarding brand infringement. We are not actually involved in the activities. Joel helped us and finally we did not need to pay a penny to the plaintiff.

Mr. Rothman has handled several patent, trademark and trade dress matters for me in the past few years. He resolved each of the matters quickly and economically.
Joel is very knowledgeable and professional. He treats the opposition respectfully and does not engage in unnecessary posturing. His approach defuses emotionally charged situations and creates an environment where rational negotiations can take place. I firmly believe his approach saved my company a great deal of money and cut short what could have been protracted and costly litigation.
Joel is a creative problem solver. He takes the time to listen and fully understand our corporate concerns. The result is a resolution that remedies the immediate problem and also serves our longer term corporate goals.
Over the years, Joel has also provided solid legal advice. Unlike other lawyers I have dealt with, Joel does not simply tell you what he thinks you want to hear. He listens to your proposed course of action and then carefully explains why the approach will or will not work. He has the excellent perspective to see potential problems and suggest ways to avoid them.
While no one enjoys the threat of litigation, knowing that Joel is available to assist makes the threat far less daunting. I highly recommend Joel and his partner, Jerry. Both are true gentlemen and a credit to the legal profession. Thank you both for all your help!

We engaged Mr Joel Rothman for a trademark infringement case. Joel was very knowledgeable and understood client's needs. Joel was genuine in helping us and even hired interpreters for some of us who don't speak English. Joel was very patient in answering our questions and communicated well so we know where we stand in our case. He was able to identify issues quickly and able to negotiate a settlement to our satisfaction. His fees were very reasonable for the quality of the work done. I would definitely recommend this attorney and would not hesitate to use his services again.
Adam Palmer, Securities and investment fraud Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have known Joel Rothman for several years and have had the opportunity to refer clients to him. Joel has a firm grasp of intellectual property law, but even more importantly, he is a fine litigation attorney who can operate strategically to achieve favorable results for his clients. I can recommend Joel without hesitation.
Arthur Schofield, Employment and labor Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Joel has been a true professional in all my dealings with him, intelligent, ethical and courteous. I have no hesitation turning to him for his counsel or forwarding clients in need of his specialities.
