  • William C. Head

    In Athens, Jeff Rothman is known for having his "ear to the ground" regarding trends and changes that are afoot in the legal community. He handles DUI and criminal matters in Athens and the surrounding counties, and knows the police officers and court personnel involved with these cases. Jeff works hard at being on top of the latest breaking law in the criminal arena, and keeps in contact with his clients. I doubt that any Athens lawyer has gone to trial in Clarke County on as many DUI cases as Jeff in the last decade. His evaluation of the quality of a DUI case and its chances at trial in Clarke County or an adjacent county is unmatched.

  • Marny J. Heit

    Jeff is one of the sharpest DUI defense lawyers I know. He is well-respected for his knowledge of the law, and persistence in defending his client's rights. I wouldn't hesitate to refer him to a friend or family member in need of a defense attorney.
