Experience. Trust. Communication.

"Mike isn't just an attorney, he talked to me as if I was a family member . . . He genuinely cares about your wellbeing and that is beyond what anyone could ever ask for."

                                     --Andrew L.

Extraordinary person and a lawyer of the highest standards.

There isn’t enough space for me to write about my experiences with attorney Michael Rothman. He is an extraordinary person and a lawyer of the highest standards.

Mike is a man of great integrity and compassion

Mike is a man of great integrity and compassion, and at all times he has been amazingly responsive by making himself available at any and all times; returning my calls & emails at whatever hour; and initiating contact to share any information that he thought would be useful with respect to my understanding his legal strategy. He has given me complete comfort throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to have the benefit of the best legal representation. He is dependable; trustworthy; responsiveness; has excellent analytical skills; and incredible research, speaking and listening skills. He has truly made one of the most difficult times of my life, so much easier to deal with.

Mike Rothman is the epitome of what a professional, intelligent and caring lawyer is.

Mike Rothman is the epitome of what a professional, intelligent and caring lawyer is. He was able to do what all the other lawyers I hired said was impossible. He took the time to thoroughly explain each step to me and was not afraid to go head to head with the aggressive states attorney and judge in my case. If you are looking for a lawyer who knows our laws in detail and is willing to put the work in for you look no further. I'm so grateful to have met Mike. He is a wonderful person and has a made a huge impact on my life.

Arrested or Charged?

Every day people across the country are charged with a crime or arrested by law enforcement. Who do you turn to for help when the unthinkable happens?

Concerned about Justice?

No one wakes up, believing they will be arrested.  But if you are one day accused of a crime, do you believe you will be treated fairly without competent and capable representation.

Confused by the Law?

Courthouses can be frightening when you find yourself facing civil or criminal charges.  It is important to have someone who knows his or her way around the courthouse to show you how to make the law work for you.
