Rothkoff Law Group will be celebrating our 20th anniversary in January 2020. During the past 20 years, I have learned many important lessons. One of the most important lessons learned is the law alone is not enough to advocate for our clients and their caregiver loved ones.

Our client, who was living alone with her 10-year old Yorkie mix, Penny, was in need of immediate nursing home placement. The client dog [...]

The Rothkoff Law Group is beginning our 20th year advocating for seniors and those with disabilities. When I first entered the field of elder law, I cannot say I had a particular fondness for the elderly. Rather, nearly twenty years ago, I envisioned elder law as a means to make a living in an area of law that would likely grow well into the future. Did I initially envision our practice including five geriatric social workers, receiving regional awards for health care advocacy, or bringing an expert on dementia care [...]
