Hands down the best attorney!!!
After a disappointing consultation with another attorney I went on a google search to find an attorney who cares and could handle my police disability claim. I was so very fortunate to find Michael Rothmann . After my first consultation with him I felt a sense of relief. He took his time explaining everything to me and let me know he would be by my side every step of the way. Michael Rothmann’s work Ethic is impeccable!!!! He always treated me like a human being not just another number and even wiped many tears. He really cares about his clients and what they are going through. If you are looking for an attorney that truly cares and will fight for you because he cares then Michael Rothmann is your attorney. Michael Rothmann won my case and as promised he was there every step of the way!!!! I’m so very grateful.

Dedicated and Professional Attorney
I was seeking an attorney for my disability case and was very fortunate to find Michael Rothmann. He was highly professional throughout the entire case, always taking the time to explain everything thoroughly and with compassion. All paperwork was filed in a timely manner and Michael's communication was excellent. Not once did I worry when I was in his hands as I could tell he had an accurate and precise understanding of the law and procedures surrounding my case. If you are seeking legal representation, I would recommend you look no further and reach out to Michael. He is a true gentleman and fierce advocate for his clients. My case had a positive outcome due to his hard work and expertise. Thank you Michael

Police Officer
Personally, I don't bother writing reviews unless I feel it is warranted, especially when it's of great importance such as in my case. I sustained a life altering injury at work for which I am unable to perform the required/demanding tasks my job entails for which I had to file for disability. Through my union an attorney had been assigned to my case who clearly stated that my case will go nowhere, that I was going to lose, practically that there was nothing he could do for which I was very concerned due to my physical state. I decided to seek legal assistance on my own and called 8 other law firms and none was willing to help me until I contacted Mr. Rothman’s assistant who took my information and a synopsis of the facts. Mr. Rothman gave me an interview and I was pleased because after listening to my case he stated that he would represent me. That first encounter with Mr. Rothman was of such importance because he made me feel that he cared and gave me hopes. Throughout the preparation of my case, he kept in contact with me and any questions I had he would answer immediately giving me the reassurance I needed. He was very thorough, up front, extremely professional and always had a positive look towards my hopes of winning. Finally, during my hearing he went to work, actually Mr. Rothman’s work is like a piece of art: well refined, tuned and just brilliant. Throughout the hearing he demonstrated to me that he really cared, he did his homework and was well prepared. His performance in the courtroom was impressive and I was able to see how devoted he was. He has the experience, knowledge and more importantly that passion to help others. I am pleased to say that because Mr. Rothman’s assistance I won my case and I highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal representation. Besides the above descriptions of Mr. Rothman one more to had is honesty, to my surprise he stated that I still had a 4th of my retainer fees which was practically returned to me. This is very important to any client, you want to make sure where your money is, he provided an itemized bill detailing his work. For this many reasons, I will be glad to hire him again and if you are reading this you should too. Some people do their work for their own reasons, but Mr. Rothman’s work is to actually help his clients!
