I first reached out to Eric in January in order to inquire about what options were at my disposal after receiving a citation for public urination. Eric was incredibly helpful and very timely in offering advice regarding the best course of action for my particular case. Seeing as I wished to have this completely removed from any record (regardless of whether it is public or private I wanted to make sure that there was no chance that a future employer etc. would come upon this information), Eric and I moved forward in an attempt to get my case thrown out. Simply put, Eric clearly told me what steps I would have to take in order to help him accomplish this goal and after following his simple and easy instructions he ultimately was able to get my case thrown out.

Great lawyer. Very reasonable fee. Consistently kept me updated regarding my case and was always available. I hired him to arrange an early dismissal of an ACD case. When another lawyer had said that an early dismissal could not be arranged, Mr. Rothstein said otherwise. He was able to arrange meetings with all the necessary people and a couple of weeks later, my ACD was closed early. Thank you! Don't hesitate to hire him if you need help.

Eric, advanced my reckless driving case upon receipt and was able to dismiss my violation ALL without my presence. Excellent communication and exceptional professional. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED on my behalf. Thank you always!

My case was with Century 21. I was charged with Petit Larceny for shoplifting. I picked Eric out for my case based on excellent reviews on Avvo. Eric mentioned that he expected to be able to get an ACD based on my background and indeed was able to do so. (ACD implies the charge would be dismissed within 6 months of the first court appearance date contingent on completion of community service and no repeat offences).
On the appointed court date, he was there before me and had already spoken to the authorities about my ACD. The day went very smoothly. Before the court date, he addressed all my questions/anxious concerns patiently and with impressive promptness, both on the phone and email. What I like most about working with him is that he does not over-promise or overstate. His ample experience in the field must help. I felt like I could rely on his advice. I am happy with the service he has provided on my case. I recommend him highly.

Eric Rothstein was formal and responsive to my emails. He was able to get my case handled before my appearance. I was worried about it because this was my first offense and I didn't want it to mess with my future, but he made me feel comfortable and reassured me that the case will be handled with a dismissal or an ACD. He was very nice and understanding of the situation. I do recommend him for your defense. You can't go wrong with Eric Rothstein at your side.

What can I say, this guy is the best. A few months ago i got into trouble and it was pretty. To start, i am a very private person and this was my first time getting into trouble. I could not let this "incident" be publicized nor prolonged. Long story short, Eric Rothstein was not only able to negotiate a better outcome but save my dignity as well. I could not have asked for a better lawyer. First timers, dont worry, Eric Rothstein knows how to handle your case and will see it through that you get the result desired. As soon as I explained my situation, he knew immediately what to do and what the likely outcome would be. I was nervous as heck when I first walked in but Eric Rothstein made me feel like a decent human being who made a mistake, not like a convicted felon. Even after my trial, Eric stayed with me throughout the registering of my sentencing, a suprising human aspect that i never thought would exist in a lawywr. I would not hesitate to use his services again if need be. I cannot recommend him enough.

Attorney Rothstein helped me get an ACD after an unfortunate incident. He was responsive and accurate in his prediction and outcome. Hire him as your legal représentative.

Eric Rothstein made me feel more at ease after I got charged for public urination in NYC.
My biggest fear was having the charge on record permanently and being accessible to everyone. From the start, Eric told me the facts with confidence. Because of Eric's experience and knowledge, my charges were dropped; I couldn't have been happier.
Eric responds quickly and gives all info out so we know what we are dealing with. Eric's experience also managed to get my case dealt with faster.
Based on his incredible knowledge, professionalism and years of experience, I highly recommend Eric Rothstein.

I had made a foolish mistake about two moths ago and was being charged with public urination , criminal possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. In 6 months this will be dismissed and it will not be on my record thanks to Mr.Rothstein.

There are not enough words to express my gratitude to Eric Rothstein. From the very start of my case he was attentive, meticulous, and dedicated to fighting for me. His knowledge of the law is irrefutable and his wisdom is remarkable. He was ALWAYS prompt for every single meeting, which I was extremely thankful for. Eric is not the type of attorney to keep you hanging either. His response time on emails and phone calls was incredible and he always gave to the point answers. I am so pleased that I was fortunate enough to obtain his services because he did wonders for my case. He made the whole process much less stressful all while keeping me constantly informed. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! Trust me when I tell you Mr. Rothstein is the key to winning your case; he will not disappoint!
