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 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
I called Eric regarding a minor issue and he was able to resolve it completely later that afternoon. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional, and kept me updated throughout the process. I could not possibly endorse him strongly enough.
Mr Rothstein is professional ,efficient and responsive .His answers to my questions are always short ,fast and right to the point. He was able to help me get ACD with 6 months sealing + 2 days community service on the second court appearance .Highly recommended.
Eric appeared on my behalf to defend me for a minor city parks violation charge. He got my charge dismissed and sealed within a month. He was communicative but didn't ask for too much from me or take much of my time. The process was simple and completely painless.
I contacted Eric the day after my brother and I each received our UPM summonses. He charged one very reasonable fee to represent the both of us and I couldn't be happier with the job that he did. Throughout this process Eric was very helpful, knowledgable and easy to reach and I can honestly say that I never had to wait more than a few minutes for a response from him. Eric was able to convince the judge to dismiss BOTH charges without us even showing up in court. If you need a reliable, knowledgable, patient and trustworthy attorney Eric is the man for the job!
While performing a background check on myself I came across a 10 year old warrant for an appearance ticket. Not only was this surprising but around 10 years ago someone was arrested using my ID to purchase and consume alcohol. I thought I was in trouble proving my innocence as I no long had proof of that person's arrest. I searched avvo and came across Eric Rothstein and was impressed by his recent reviews. Well after working with him I can only further attest to his true 5 star rating. He was friendly, knowledgeable and kept in contact with me. He assured me not to worry and contacted me as soon as the case was resolved. I would highly recommend his services to anyone here and would happily recommend him to close friends and family.
I had the best possible experience I could ask for with Eric. He represented me for a case that I was extremely nervous about, and he made me feel comfortable with his confidence and expertise. I trusted him implicitly and could not have asked for a better outcome in my case. He seems to have great relationships within the court system and full understanding of best approach. I would not question his decisions, and would/will absolutely reach out to him immediately in any future legal issues that he could address.
Eric was a great supportive lawyer. My case was postponed a couple of times and while I began to panic Eric was confident. I especially appreciated that my emails were returned quickly. He knows his field very well and takes steps to ensure his clients best interest! Thanks Eric for answering all of my many emails!
I retained Mr. Rothstein to represent me in a recent misdemeanor case. After meeting with several lawyers, I found Mr. Rothstein most comfortable to work with. He exhibited the utmost professionalism, patience, and courtesy when explaining the details, possible outcomes, and ramifications of my situation and case. In response to my numerous questions, he gave honest and straightforward answers that reflected both robust experience and a vast knowledge of the law. He was ultimately able to obtain the best possible result in my case (Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal). Mr. Rothstein has my gratitude and respect, and I would strongly recommend him to anybody in need of legal representation.
