I see a changed profession in the way women have moved into the legal career fields, and especially as litigators. —Bonnie Hochman Rothell

Ms. Rothell has chaired hundreds of litigation matters throughout the country, prosecuting and taking some appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court. Her work with hundreds of cases, none of which she has ever lost on merit, have allowed her to help clients receive many favorable dispositive motions or reasonable settlements. Her commitment to her clients is to always try to exceed success beyond what her clients imagined.

Ms. Rothell is no stranger to breaking down barriers for women in the law. With more than 25 years of litigation experience, she says “I see a changed profession in the way women have moved into the legal career fields, and especially as litigators.” Rothell’s strength in working with colleagues is that she doesn’t like to see other litigators as male or female; simply as advocates for their cases and clients. For Ms. Rothell, being underestimated early in her career gave her the experience and confidence to forge through obstacles.

She advises aspiring litigators and professionals to keep a client-focused approach: “So many litigators end up in an aggressive enemy mode and cannot find their way to a resolution of claims long after their case is destined to cost their clients more money than it is worth.” She recommends constant self-reflection throughout a case for litigators and mediators to ensure that the case is proceeding in a way that meets client goals.

Ms. Rothell believes that her accomplishments as a mediator are also linked to having walked a mile in the shoes of a litigator; these experiences, she states, have given her a holistic view of the law.

Krooth& Altman was founded in 1947 with the vision of providing the highest level of legal expertise and strategic counseling for clients. That strong tradition is still maintained today with a focus on real estate, capital finance, litigation and business matters.
