Sometimes You Get One Chance to Get It Right:  Hiring an Attorney Who Listens Is the Best Choice You Can Make.

Building The Strong Defense You Deserve

Criminal charges are a direct threat to your future and your personal freedom. I believe that you deserve qualified guidance during this difficult time, and I can help you understand the case against you and the specific legal options you have. I am attorney Mike Rothman, and I have been defending the interests of individuals charged with various types of crimes since 1999.


Admitted to practice in both Maryland and in the District of Columbia, I have a reputation for providing vigorous defense counsel and personal service to each client who turns to me for help. My record of success has led to various recognitions and accolades, including a 10.0 Avvo rating, inclusion in America’s Top 100 Criminal Defense Attorneys in 2018, recipient Martindale-Hubbell Client Champion Gold 2018, and selected for inclusion in the Super Lawyers list every year since 2011.
