    Excellent Lawyer. Resolve the case quickly and smoothly.

    I am glad I hired Eric Rothstein searching on AVVO website. My daughter received a Desk Appearance Ticket for a misdemeanor PL 155.25. I was very concern and don't know what to do. .Eric was very nice and explaining the situation will be resolved quickly. The court date was conflicting with my daughter college orientation day. Eric was able to help us rescheduled our court date without issue. On the day we went to court, there was a big line outside for court appearance. Eric help us skip the line and got our case to process first. The whole court process and paper works was about 30 min. The important part my daughter received an ACD judgement and the case will be sealed in 6 months. She will have to do 1 day of community service. I highly recommend Eric Rothstein. He is very easy to talk to and know the court system very well.
    Thank you!

    Eric is simply the best

    If you need someone to feel bad for you and hold your hand like a toddler, Eric Rothstein is not the attorney for you.
    If you need a professional, knowledgable, and prompt attorney Eric is the best. He is simple and to the point and doesn't waste a second of your time. His response times are incredible and he is just a beast in the courtroom. He is the first to arrive and the first to deliver the punches. Although my case was simple, he dominated every interaction with the judge and the DA. It only took one hearing to dismiss my case. I would recommend Eric to anyone in need an attorney. As a bonus, his retainment fee is just plain fair. I didn't bother negotiating as people that were obviously half as confident were charging the same amount.

    Lifesaver

    After reviewing numerous lawyers profile on AVVO, I decided to hire Mr. Rothstein as my lawyer.

    I was charged with 5 counts all stemming from an allegation that I struck my ex-girl. The most serious of these were Assault in the Third Degree and Menacing in the Third Degree. In addition of having charges brought against me in the criminal court, she also went to the family court and got a restraining order against me because she had been living at my place for a month. So, I had a restraining order in both the criminal case and the family court. So I had two court cases against me and two restraining orders against me. The job that I do, I had to be found not guilty in both courts or I would lose my job. Also my future live hood, because I wouldn't be allowed to work in my career field with assault charges against me, It was truly a horrible feeling to lose everything that I had worked so hard for because of false accusations.

    I want to say that I am so glad that I hired Mr. Rothstein as my lawyer, a lesser lawyer would have found this as daunting and probably would have tried to try to get me to take a plea of lesser charges, which the DA did attempted to have me do. Not only was I found not guilty of all charges in the criminal case, Mr. Rothstein, did so an amazing job on the criminal case that the opposing counsel was told in so many words by the judge that they weren't going to win the family court case. So, the ex-had no choice but to drop the restraining order against me.

    In the criminal case against I was being tried by the Assistant Bureau Chief, so that brought the big gun against me. Mr. Rothstein was a true professional throughout the trial and was unfazed this. To watch him cross-exam my ex was to watch an artist at work.
    If you are in trouble hire this man. I hope that I never need a lawyer again but if I do. I know who I will be calling. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have

    Excellent Attorney

    Eric is a extremely knowledgeable and knows the system very well. He also really cares about his clients. He was able to dismiss my case very efficiently securing a meeting with the DA which led to the successful dismissal of the case. Eric always returned emails and phone calls promptly. I highly recommend him

    Excellent Lawyer

    I was recently arrested and charged with a misdemeanor. Since it had never happened to me before, the expected outcome of my case was an ACD with dismissal in 6 months. For me, a recent college graduate, it meant that I would have to postpone my job search for at least 6 months, since I wouldn’t be able to pass background checks with an open ACD. I was ashamed and devastated. A casualty of the Great Recession, I had been working really hard to change my career and earn my latest degree in healthcare, and the thought of not being able to move forward because of my mistake, was difficult to bear. I needed an attorney, who could negotiate a much shorter ACD. After painstaking research, I decided to hire Eric Rothstein, a very experienced and highly respected in the legal community attorney. From the moment we first spoke over the phone to the day we met in court, Eric Rothstein has been empathetic, polite, and honest. He answered all of my questions, came to court even though he had other cases heard that day in a different borough, and he was able to negotiate an ACD with dismissal and sealing in 3 weeks. Thank you, Eric Rothstein.

    Fare Evasion

    Eric provided responsive, professional, and knowledgeable representation. He was able to get the DA to dismiss my theft of services charge and an ACD on trespassing for an incident involving fare evasion in the subway. He also was able to move my court date around to fit my schedule and resolve the matter swiftly.

    Great experience

    Eric was always super responsive (even on weekends) which was extremely reassuring and helpful for me. And not only that, he knows the law system very well and got the case dismissed! Highly recommended.

    Eric Rothstein, the Hero

    Eric was highly professional and sound in his work. As someone who has little experience with the law, Eric's professionalism set a grand introduction towards my initial court case. It's evident he has strong relationships within the DA court system. I'd recommend him to anyone, his presence is respected in the New York courts
