I worked with Erika over the past 24 months regarding arbitration filing for an employment contract issue. She was always focused, well prepared, and went up against 3 lawyers from a large law firm representing the other side. She knew the arbitration process well, recommended/brought in subject matter experts for SEC law and data forensics as needed. Additionally, she provided sound and helpful advise on trade-offs, approach, process, and settlement attempts throughout the process. She was accessible and responsive when needed. Plus, she coached me and helped even reduce my legal fees by offering options. While the process was long, she stayed committed, patient, and always planned ahead. Although it felt like David vs Goliath at times, I am VERY happy to say that thanks to Erika, David won again!
BTW, I drove up from Miami and it was well worth the trips to have Erika's outstanding support. Don't let the distance make you settle for someone less effective.

Ms. Rotbart exemplifies a truly professional approach to her craft. It is most evident in the respect that she receives from her adversarial counsel. I could not have done better if Clarence Darrow (or even Perry Mason) would have taken my case pro bono (lawyerspeak for free).

She is very knowledgable, professional and honest. Qualities that are getting more difficult to find. She will work very hard for a cause if it warrants justification and does not quit when the going gets tough. And last but not least she is petite and very, very attractive!

Erika has made significant mark in a difficult subject area in a difficult geographic area. She has kept her integrity and her compassion in a cut-throat environment. Erika is savvy enough to operate comfortably in the legal jungles of South Florida but still earthy and compassionate enough to connect with the needs of clients who have lost employment and all the other losses that usually follow. She is a skilled, vigorous, ethical practitioner.
