I was in serious trouble (Assault in the first degree) and was desperately looking for a good lawyer to help me. After doing some research and talking to a couple of other lawyers I was blessed to meeting Mr.Rothstein. What called my attention was while every other lawyer I talked to promised me miracles and assured me that they can resolve my problem, Mr.Rothstein told me not what I wanted to hear but what I needed to hear. The day after I hired Mr.Rothstein he was like a dog off its leash giving me results in24 hours. In a couple of months time, My problem was not only resolved but we had outstanding results in which I did not time and have no criminal record. Mr.Rothstein gave me a fresh start and is a real honest lawyer always answering my emails the same day he gets them and always updating me on my case. I strongly recommend Mr.Rothstein as a Criminal Attorney for any one who is in a similar situation that I was in.
Eric handled an open container violation for me. I spoke to him about my situation and he gave me his honest opinion that he thought it was possible, but not certain, he could get it dismissed. He emailed me right after the hearing with the good news that he was able to get an adjournment with contemplation of dismissal that would mean it would be dismissed in a day.
I couldn't be happier with the outcome and I would recommend him to anyone.
I hired Mr. Rothstein to handle a case of a pink slip for me. I really liked how to the point and reliable and reachable he was. He was able to get the case dismissed one day after the court appearance without me even having to be present. Highly recommended.
I would highly recommend Eric Rothstein in any criminal defense matter. He is very familiar with the court system from both sides that will aid in you getting justice. He had to very difficult cases for me dismissed by working within the system to get the results that were true. He always answered my emails and picked up my calls personally. I have dealt with many lawyers and he is top notch. No false promises and he does what he says he will do. He is an excellent lawyer.
My daughter, a minor, inadvertently entered a park with a friend in New York City after hours. A police officer issued a summons to her and her friend. This was her first such incident. Mr. Rothstein handled everything diligently. She did not have to appear on her court date as Mr. Rothstein handled the matter personally with the judge. He was able to get the case dismissed immediately and sealed. This is the best outcome that can be obtained in such a matter. Mr. Rothstein was recommended to me by someone with a similar case and favorable outcome.
Eric Rothstein is an amazing lawyer. I'm so thankful I found him on Avvo. I was arrested for shoplifting. He got the case to be dismissed and I just have to do oneday community service. He is very professional and punctual about evrything. Every time I emailed him, I got a reply right away. Very helpful and knowledgable guy. Definitely recommend him.
I was pressed for time in finding a defense attorney for my court cases and found Mr. Rothstein on this website. This was after a few days of reading many reviews from many attorneys and liked the reviews his clients gave him. Now being a former client myself, I know his other clients were being modest in their review. I will take the same approach as to not sound like I am praising this attorney, but having my cases dismissed and sealed without going to trial in my situation comes very close to that. During my cases he took the time to understand my position, explained my options and the court process, and made me feel I was his only client. This was very important to me because this was my first time going to court. In court I felt confident because he was in control and well prepared for whatever the D.A. throws at me.
Mr. Rothstein is THE attorney to have by your side when you need representation. My family and friends have his number in case they need him.
Mr. Rothstein was very responsive, prompt and professional. Mr. Rothstein was able to work out an early dismissal for my daughter's case. I highly recommend this attorney.
Highly professional, good communications. Outlined the possible outcomes, but was able to deliver the best outcome.
The case involved my 21 year old son getting citations for public urination/indecent exposure for urinating in a downtown alley outside a club at 3 AM.
Excellent lawyer. His professionalism and demeanor helped me get through this ordeal. I have health issues which he understood and went far and beyond in making sure I was not stressed out. He believed in me from the first time we met and worked hard to have my case dismiss and sealed. Most importantly, he always kept me informed about my case and never got annoyed at all the questions I asked. His responses were always simple and to the point. I highly recommend him you will not be disappointed.
