David Rothenberg, Architect & Contractor

We could write volumes about the two years of misery and hell David Rothenberg (Flint Arrow Owner) has put our family through. We may never financially recover from David Rothenberg, but we can hopefully help other people from the same fate.

NEW INFO: Rothenberg Allegedly Made Legally Blind Couple Pay Extra & Failed to Pay His Suppliers. Read Angela's Story Here.

The only thing worse than the poor workmanship and broken promises is the fact that David Rothenberg drew hundreds of thousands of dollars from our loan that he wasn't entitled to. In addition to breaching many important provision of the construction contract, he refused to follow our specifications. He also refused to provide Disbursement Statements during the first one and a half years. This is a violation of Texas Law. The result was unpaid subcontractors, lien filings by his subcontractors, and many thousands of dollars of missing items that we paid for.

BREAKING UPDATE: David Rothenberg's brother, Michael Rothenberg, is convicted of fraud, ordered to pay over $31 million and faces up to 60 years in prison. Read Coverage Here.

David referred us to his personal bank that provided the construction loan. Texas law requires that the Contractor provide the Owner with a disbursement statement at each draw. Flint Arrow submitted draw requests directly to the bank, refused to give us copies, keeping us completely in the dark about what he was drawing money for.

Our Contract specified that Contractor would invoice Owner for expenses incurred. Despite this fact, Flint Arrow LLC would draw hundreds of thousands more money from the bank than expenses incurred.

Because we didn’t get Draw Requests or Disbursement Statements for 1.5 years, he David Rothenberg over $200,000 more than expenses incurred. After we received the first subcontractor lien on our home for unpaid work, we asked Rothenberg all the Disbursement Statements he was legally required to provide under the Texas Property Code. His response was “I will leave that portion between you and the bank”.

To make matters worse, David Rothenberg drew the money from our loan for major items and then didn’t pay for those items. Now there is not enough money remaining on the loan to pay for those items. There are currently liens on the home and Rothenberg refused to get them removed although the Contract requires that he do so. We continue to get letters and calls from more contractors and suppliers who he failed to pay.
