Jeff will go above and beyond for your case. It really shows how much he cares when he enters a courtroom to fight for you and your rights. He has the ability to channel that passion into a fantastic defense for you and has a terrific courtroom presence. He will draw the attention of the jurors and contain it. With his help I was able to rightfully have my charges dismissed. Great person to hire, you might be kicking yourself if you don't.

Jeff did an excellent job of thoroughly reviewing the facts of my case and identifying the details that ultimately got my case reduced substantially and keeping a very bad blemish off of my record.

In June of 2014 I was pulled over and charged with a DUI. Mr Rothman and his paralegals were nothing short of amazing. I was continually informed of any changes in my case and Mr Rothman made himself available to me whenever I had questions or concerns. I received copies of dashcam videos, Bloodwork results and court documents. While naturally nervous, Mr Rothman assured me he had my case under control and he came through. My DUI was dropped and in the off chance I am ever in the same situation- Rothman is my guy, and he should be yours too!! I couldn't have asked for better!

Mr. Rothman was recommended to me by several people after I received my second DUI. He was dependable, knowledgeable, and extremely prepared. He made me feel very comfortable at all stages of my case and kept me informed at all times. He was able to negotiate with the prosecutors and got me a great plea deal. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. I could not have been more pleased with the services that I received.

I chose Jeff Rothman to represent me for a DUI that I had received back in mid August. I knew that if anyone could help me with this case it was Rothman, his creditable reputation thrives around the Athens community and it shows. Rothman was not only knowledgeable, but he was responsive and trustworthy as well. Jeff was able to dismiss my DUI case with only a fine. Even when things were not in my favor, throughout the case Mr. Rothman kept me on my toes assuring me that he would be able to work everything out. I highly recommend Mr. Rothman for any future DUI or criminal law suites. This man knows YOUR rights!

I was represented my Jeff Rothman in a recent DUI and am so glad to say it has completely been dropped. His knowledge and his experience are apparent from watching his interaction with judges, prosecutors, and practically everyone in the room. He was very informative and I felt as if I was having my hand held throughout the entire process. At no point did I ever feel he wasn't in complete control and wouldn't provide a spot on defense. Mr. Rothman's fee was slightly higher than other attorneys in Athens, but in this particular case you get what you pay for. A good attorney.

Mr. Rothman came highly recommended and I hired him in 2008 to defend me after I was charged with DUI at a road block following a UGA game. The machine at the road block would not register a reading but the officer said I failed the sobriety test and arrested me anyway (in spite of the fact I told him I had a herniated disc in my back and a former head injury). Mr. Rothman told me he would get the video of the sobriety test, my medical records to see if we could use these in my defense but I needed to pay him $4500 up front. He said after he reviewed these, he would know if i had a chance to have the charges dismissed. After I paid him, he barely communicated with me during the process and when I would ask if he had gotten the records need for my defense, he would say he was in the process of obtaining them. I told him if I was convicted, it would have a huge impact on my employment. When it came down to the day of the final hearing, Mr. Rothman had never gotten the information he told me he was going to request to use in my defense. Then In spite of leading me to believe earlier we could get the charges thrown out, Mr. Rothman told me he had a "deal" to plead down for wreckless driving & I better take it or I would be faced with paying him more for a jury trial. When he presented the case for the the plea bargain, including telling the judge that the machine did not register correctly, the judge commented it it seemed the road block had not been conducted correctly. I think if presented with the documentation Mr. Rothman lead me to believe he was going to obtain, the charges could have been dismissed. Instead, with the wreckless driving charge I still had to pay fines, probation fees and I lost my job. If you hire him, you better stay on him to do what he says he will do.

I was stopped at a road block late one night when I was arrested for a D.U.I. I was recommended to Mr. Rothman by a friend of my fathers- who was also an attorney. Mr. Rothman was very helpful in explaining my current standing and the actions I needed to take in order to strengthen my case. I was required to do very little but Mr. Rothman kept me informed of the important changes in my case. Overall he was very prepared in all aspects of my case and handled all court appearances professionally and efficiently. My case was dismissed and I no longer have criminal charges on my record. Highly recommend Mr. Rothman for your attorney needs.

Its been a few days since I was acquitted of DUI and I am still at a loss of words. I hired another attorney earlier handle this case, and she just wanted to plea it out because of the high BAC number. I knew that would never be an option for me. I hired Mr. Rothman based on the reviews from this website, and I could not be more impressed with the outcome of my case. After a year and a half of trying to get the prosecutor to reduce the DUI to reckless driving they would not. I decided to take my chances at trial and Mr. Rothman was a rock star in the courtroom. Even after the officer testified about the failed FSTs and a high BAC of .146 Mr Rothman was still able to convince the jury to acquit me because of bad recording keeping by the people department, and a faulty breath machine. I would not hesitate to recommend anybody to Mr. Rothman.

Already having a Dui on my record, I knew this would be a tough one. A friend told me to use Mr. Rothman. He was very professional and explained everything, even what each little movement you did during a field sobriety test would mean. I was completely shocked when I learned that my case would be dismissed. He's an amazing lawyer, and a great guy. Give him a call if you're in trouble.
