Through the years Mr. Roth developed his legal practice, taking on several different associates to help him service his clients. He was also appointed as Municipal Court Judge in Jackson Township, as well as in various other towns throughout Ocean County. In 1974, Mr. Roth was involved in the famous insurance case Rova Farms v. Investor’s Insurance Co., which to this day is used as the precedential case regarding insurance bad faith.
In 1980, Mr. Roth took on his most important associate, his son, Jeffrey S. Roth, who had recently completed law school and passed the New Jersey Bar. The law firm subsequently became Roth & Roth, P.A. It continued with father and son working closely together through the years, helping numerous clients in many different areas of the law, including workers’ compensation, personal injury, real estate transactions, family matters, landlord-tenant, estates, estate planning, etc.
The practice has always prided itself, and continues to do so, for its personal attention and accessibility to its clients, with a family-type atmosphere from the minute you walk into the “house,” with the Roths often making house calls when clients are not capable of coming into the office themselves. The Roths always acquired their clients and business through referrals, rarely having the need for advertising, because of clients being so pleased with the handling of their cases, coming back time and again for new cases and also referring their friends, family, neighbors, and business associates.
