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 seamlessly through many difficult decisions has been the answer to our prayers.  After successfully 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. 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. We knew the money wouldn’t last forever and we were worried about mom’s 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 dad’s 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 mom’s 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, have put their finances in order, handled all legal issues or questions, updated their wills, and 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. I would like express our deepest appreciation!  Great job!
