Avvo Reviews

"Eric successfully guided me through a complex employer tax situation many years ago. Since then he has worked through a 1031 exchange, the purchase and sale of several properties, deed revisions, estate planning and a condo purchase. Always attentive to me and provided services at fair and reasonable costs."

By Tax client


"We came to Eric Rothenberg with a complex tax law issue. Several other lawyers had given us muddled and conflicting advice. Eric was easily the best prepared on the subject and his advice was excellent. (He was so knowledgeable my wife assumed I had briefed him before the meeting - I hadn't). He now helps us prepare our taxes each year. Strongly recommended."

By Tax client


"We have known Attorney Rothenberg since 1992. He has been our Attorney for writing our wills, the purchase of our business, the sale of our family home and the settling of a deceased loved one's estate. In all areas we found Attorney Rothenberg extremely professional, very knowledgeable and very efficient. He was always available when needed, at any time. We are extremely pleased and grateful for all that Attorney Rothenberg has done on our behalf and will continue to use Attorney Rothenberg for all our legal needs and as in the past, we will highly recommend him to our family and friends. "

By Linda, tax client


"Eric P Rothenberg is probably the best attorney i have ever worked with. He helped me tremendously regarding my Dad's estate. Eric is very knowledgeable in the ways of how the tax system works and he explained everything to me in a language that i could understand. I am currently still working with Attorney Rothenbertg on some other matters. He is not only my attorney, but has become my friend! "

By Michael, estate planning client


"We were lost in a bottomless place of going nowhere with all the legal matters connected with my mother's inheritance and my uncle's estate. We were overwhelmed with the legalese and didn't feel that any lawyer would be able to untangle the mess of my uncle's estate, help us better understand our legal and tax obligations of my mother's inheritance as well as guide us to that light at the end of the probate process tunnel. Atty. Rothenberg did the impossible! Not only did he patiently and skillfully unravel the mess we had created, but he also helped educate us better about the laws governing these matters so that we were more comfortable with allowing the laws to protect and serve us better. Never before have we ever had this type of legal experience with any lawyer -this focused attention to our legal needs. Atty. Rothenberg explains the relevant laws to us in a language that we understand and he works on our behalf in the most skillful, compassionate, knowledgeable and trustworthy manner possible. We truly trust him, and we feel fortunate to have his vast experience, expertise and legal executions working on our behalf in all our tax, trust and estate matters"

Legal Questions & Answers

I'm very sorry to hear you are going through such a rough time. It must be very difficult to care for your parent while also managing the stress of work. Although your employer may not be breaking the law by contacting you and asking you to return to work, they are obviously displaying a lack of sensitivity and compassion which is just a shame. Please remember, Massachusetts is an "at will" state which means if you are employed at will, your employer does not need good cause to fire you nor do you need to provide a reason to quit. Good luck and I hope this turns out well for you.
