Here is what some former clients and other attorneys think of Rothstein Law:
Medical Malpractice Case:
Would HIghly Recommend Eric Rothstein
I had a very unusual medical malpractice claim against a well known hospital in NYC and had contacted several attorneys but was turned away with the same response: the case was too small and risky because the malpractice didn't really have a precedent as it was so rare, and there was no permanent injury or death (the extreme PTSD I was suffering didn't seem to make it worth it for them). I was very frustrated and had all but given up when I came upon Mr. Eric Rothstein. He immediately recognized that there was indeed a liability and after meeting with him I felt at once that finally I had someone on my side fighting for me. He didn't treat me as a potential settlement number, but as a person wronged and he was going to do everything to make it right. He kept me apprised of everything that was going on in the case - I never had to call him to ask "Well, how is it going?" and he was always very tactful when discussing with me facts of the case that I was still very sensitive about. He was able to settle the case without even going to trial (in mediation), which I have since learned is also very difficult to do. I would highly recommend Mr. Eric Rothstein to anyone in need of an attorney. He will fight for you as if you were his only client, and if for some reason he feels there is another attorney out there who has more experience in a particular area of the law and/or is better equipped to handle your case, he will walk you to their door to make sure you get the best representation possible.

Driving While Impaired Case:
Excellent Results and Dedication!
Mr. Rothstein was dilligent in his research and produced results that saved us thousands of dollars and year worth of work. I would highly recommend him and would call him in an instant should I need his services again. Stephanie
Defense of Civil Assault Case:
Eric Rothstein - Gives 110% For Your Defense. Highly Recommend
Eric Rothstein is an amazing attorney who I highly recommend. I fortunately have not had to obtain a laywer frequently in the past but Eric helped has helped me through my defense in a civil case for which should have never occured in the first place. His knowledge of the legal system and experience handling civil cases shined through to the point where his actions on my behalf were much more strategical then the Prosecutions which in turn helped my defense. Eric was connected via phone and email at all times which is a major plus today and his response times were incredible. Chris
Motor Vehicle Accident Case:
You wouldn't believe how happy I am to have something steady again. Thanks to you, I was able to pay my car off, buy a van [to start a business] and half my bills are gone... Thanks a million! Walter
Personal Injury Case:
Very Persistent and Got Me Results
Eric was able to get me results when no one else would even talk to me about my case. Laura
Commercial Breach of Contract Case:
Litigator Gives High Marks to Rothstein
This was a tricky case against a nasty law firm and it required a hard, fast and focused pursuit - Eric delivered, hands down. I have worked with hundreds of attorneys from across the county (I am a former litigator, now a technology consultant) and not one of them could have done as well as Eric did in getting this case to a successful conclusion. Anne
Debt Collection For A Doctor:
Eric succeeded in a collection process that our collection agency was unable to work thru. He is professional and most importantly, does not give up or give in. I have no hesitation at all in providing an excellent review for him. Joseph
A criminal issue arose in our family and I had to disturb Eric on a Sunday morning. He lept into action and delved right into the issue. He keep us well-informed through-out (and since), and was (and still is) a relentless, strong advocate. He is extremely well-versed on the law, and an amazing trial attorney. Karel
Criminal Case With Active Bench Warrant:
I contacted Mr. Rothstein after he answered a question regarding a bench warrant I needed vacated because I lived out of state and had no time off work to handle the matter. He was quick to respond back to me, as well as answering my questions. I read a lot regarding his past cases and ultimately decided to have him handle my situation considering his extensive background and very fair price. I signed some papers on Friday, and by Monday the warrant was revoked and some of my money returned. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Rothstein to anyone seeking legal advice, and I appreciate his help. Francisco
Mr. Rothstein provided informative and helpful advice from the moment I first contacted him. He was always quick to respond to queries and was able to act decisively when the circumstances surrounding my case changed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Rothstein to any friend or acquaintance seeking an attorney or legal representation. Kevin
Civil Rights Case:Very Happy With Service
Eric was very informative and kept in contact with me every step of the way from A-to-Z. He's very quick to respond and readily available to help out. Kenneth
Hire Eric Rothstein
I recommand Eric Rothstein, he helped me very quickly... You could trust in him... I don't have enough words to thank him. Romain
Great attorney, very quick:
Eric is very helpful and wont leave a single stone unturned when it comes to defending you. He always keeps you in the loop and is very honest about outcomes, what to expect, etc. whether you call, email, or text him - you'll receive a response almost instantly. Any time I have legal questions for myself, my friends, or family - I always turn to Eric. Ken
Helpful attorney for minor criminal defense case:
Eric appeared in court for me for a public urination summons. It was a routine case, but throughout the matter Eric was extremely responsive and helpful. He performed the work for a very reasonable fixed fee. Steven
Slip and Fall Case:
Eric was wonderful to deal with from start to finish. Professional, knowledgeable and guided my every step of the way. Eric did a great job handling everything from start to finish. Erica
Mariajuana Case Dismissed
I received a summons for Unlawful Possession of Marijuana and didn't want to plead guilty as I have a clean record and was looking to apply for graduate school in the near future. Eric Rothstein was one of the first lawyers to give me advice. I further inquired him on my issue and being as he seemed very helpful and knowledgeable on my situation, I decided to ask him to take on my case. He was very cooperative, always gave a timely response to any questions I had regarding my case, and assured me on what the possible outcomes would be. He told me that I didn't even have to show up to court, which also took a huge weight off my shoulders. Mr. Rothstein helped me immensely by getting the best possible outcome -- a dismissal. Mr. Rothstein proved to be trustworthy and got the job well done. I know that if I decided to go to court and represent myself, I would of received a 6 month to 1 year probation, plus community service and probably even have a fine on top of this. I would recommend that anyone looking for a cooperative, trustworthy, and informative lawyer to hire Mr. Rothstein. MariaFellow Attorneys
Easy, great service
Eric successfully got me an ACD (which results in dismissal/sealing) for a tresspass violation. He answered all of my questions promptly and everything went smooth and as expected. Steven
Public Urination Defense:
I hired Eric to represent me in regards to a public urination summons. Not only was he able to get the judge to initially offer a reduction to violation (so that the misdemeanor would not appear on my record), he was ultimately able to convince him to issue an ACD which will result in dismissal and sealing of the case, and no fine whatsoever. I couldn't be happier with the result, as well as with Eric's communication and professionalism throughout. My highest recommendations. Benjamin
DV Charge Dismissed On 1st Appearance:
An unfortunate lapse in judgment could have jeopardized admission into pharmacy school. My court appointed attorney was nasty, condescending and told me to cooperate with ACS for any chance of a favorable disposition. Knowing that this was bad advice I retained Mr. Rothstein. Throughout the case, he remained in constant contact and exploited all the critical flaws of the case. Mr. Rothstein refuted my court appointed lawyer's assessment of the case and through dedicated legal research negotiated an outright dismissal with the ADA. Not only did my criminal record remain clean, but he saved me a significant amount of time and uncertainty with frivolous court appearances. Did I mention my case was dismissed on Mr. Rothstein's FIRST APPEARANCE! Any informed person concerned about their reputation must make an investment in competent representation. Mr. Rothstein is an easy pick. Brian
Received an ACD thanks to Eric
Best Lawyer Till Date!
I found Eric on-line and emailed him. He answered quickly and thoroughly. After getting his answer, I called him for a short consultation and he answered the phone immediately. He even told me that hiring a lawyer was not absolutely essential for my case, but after speaking with him, I decided to give him full responsibility for my case so that I wouldn't have to worry about it. And I'm glad I did because he resolved my case 2 weeks before my adjournment date (I postponed the court date by letter for the first hearing). And he resolved the case in a way that was much better than I could have expected. I was given an ACD and no fine or extra stipulations. My summons was for biking on the sidewalk, which is relatively minor, but I'm still glad that I let Eric handle this case. It was money well spent! Robert
Best Outcome for Two Charged with Petit Larceny. Thank you, Eric!
Eric represented a relative of mine and his friend in court, both of whom received Desk Appearance Tickets for petit larceny. He was very professional throughout the process from the moment he picked up the phone when I called for the initial advice until the moment we walked out of the court building with best possible results - 2 ACD's. Although the court date was postponed twice, there were no extra fees on top of the initial agreed fee, which was very reasonable. Eric was also very easy to communicate with and answered all of my questions (and, trust me, I had a lot) in a timely manner. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Anastasia
I was recently charged with Petit Larceny, while shopping in New York with another friend. We were each given a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT), dated January 3rd, 2013.
I was extremely shook up and wanted this case closed as soon as possible, especially because I am in the United States for a short time on work. Having no knowledge of what to do, we contacted many lawyers. All the lawyers we spoke to, said that the DAT date could not be moved to an earlier date whatsoever. We were extremely disheartened as it was very important to get this case closed. When we spoke to Eric, he was very helpful. We went and met him and explained the entire case to him. He was extremely reassuring and listened to our questions patiently. We both left from New York that day for our respective homes in different states.
Eric was always reachable via emails and phone calls, (which were numerous from our end). Soon enough we got our case update from Eric. He had to do a lot of running around and he managed to get our date moved to the following week itself. He represented us and got us both an ACD which is an adjournment. On our next case hearing, 2-3 days later, Eric requested that our cases also get sealed ASAP. (Normally this is a 6 month process). I did not even have to appear in court once! We were asked to do 2 days of community service. Eric even got me special permission to do the community service privately in my state, instead of having to fly to New York for it. Within 3 weeks of meeting Eric, both of our cases were both adjourned and dismissed and sealed.
No other lawyer had given us this assurance. We are extremely glad to have contacted Eric. He was extremely helpful and reassuring. He was also easily reachable at all times for our endless calls, emails and texts. I would HIGHLY recommend everyone to take Eric's helpful for any legal advice. I greatly appreciate all his help, hard work and effort. Tania
I would recommend Eric. My case (illegal possession of marijuana) was reviewed first in the court, no waiting, no hassle, 15 minutes and I was out and I did not even get the community service. It was just like any other day. Jovanny
Mr. Rothstein - very professional, excellent counsel
Mr. Rothstein was very professional and very easy to communicate with. He was able to have my Disorderly Conduct charge dismissed and closed very efficiently. I would highly recommend Mr. Rothstein's services. Chris
From the minute I filled out a contact request on his website, Eric was very responsive to my needs. He helped me through the entire process and made me feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. I'm extremely glad I hired Eric and would recommend him to anyone. Colin
Highly satisfied by the result
I had my misdemeanor charged reduced to a violation without having to go to court. I would highly recommend this lawyer. Eric is very knowledgeable and explained exactly how things would go. Sanket
Great outcome, happy customer
Eric handled our summons case for marijuana possession and Central Park curfew (park after dark) and was able to get the marijuana possession dismissed and an ACD for the park after dark charge, an excellent outcome for us. This was my first time facing any charges of this sort and Eric was very professional, responsive, and attentive throughout the entire time working with me. I would not hesitate to recommend Eric for criminal defense cases. Jeff
Great experience with Eric Rothstein
Eric handled our case perfectly and gave us one of the top outcomes we asked for. He was always responsive to our questions and willing to take calls after hours including weekends. I highly recommend him for any criminal cases you may have. Rajiv
Very satisfied with outcome, great guidance!
Mr. Eric Rothstein helped provide guidance and an overall great outcome through a DAT misdemeanor charge. He was always very responsive and communicative and willing to answer any and all questions that I had. On the court date he was extremely attentive and there to guide you every step of the way and really help you feel at ease. I would highly recommend Mr. Rothstein as he helped me get through a very uncomfortable and unfamiliar situation. So glad I hired him! Shirley
We were extremely pleased with Eric's professionalism and the outcome of the case. Jeff and Rajiv
I would recommend Mr. Rothstein. He was able to obtain an ACD for my case in a timely fashion, and answered all of my questions in detail. Jacki
Excellent - Knowledgeable
Answers all questions with a lot of knowledge on the subjects. I would definitely use the attorney if he were in my 'neck of the woods'. Great man; always answers thoroughly. Highly Recommended!!!! Jake
We chose the right lawyer in Eric Rothstein!
Eric Rothstein took care of my son's situation in an unbelievably short time. As this was an unfamiliar and stressing situation, he took the time to educate us and answered all questions we had in a timely manner. When it came to the court date, he was prompt, supportive and stayed with us throughout the entire procedure - even after our time in front of the judge. Eric Rothstein came highly recommended by someone we know and we highly recommend him. We were over-the-top satisfied with the outcome of my son's case. Cheryl
WOULD RECOMMEND TO EVERYBODY Who Needs a Criminal Defense Attorney! Effective, Efficient, and Gets Best Possible Outcome
I was arrested about a month and a half ago for criminal possession, a class A misdemeanor. As a soon to be graduate school student graduating this spring, I have been in the midst of applying for jobs. Getting arrested became a huge obstacle and burden on my prospective job opportunities and I explained this to Mr. Rothstein who was very understanding and worked hard for the best outcome for me. After speaking with a couple other attorneys I decided to go with Mr. Rothstein. All the other attorneys I spoke with told me seemed impersonal and told me the best outcome I could get was an ACD, which would leave me on probation for 6 months resulting in a serious obstacle in my job search. Mr. Rothstein went far and above what these other attorneys offered me and offered to speak with the DA about my case personally. The situation surrounding my case was questionable and Mr. Rothstein took full advantage of that and convinced the DA to dismiss my case. He got this result only a month and a half after my arrest! My original arraignment date after my arrest was scheduled about a month and a half after the date of my arrest and he was able to expedite this process and get my case dismissed before that original arraignment date. With every interaction and conversation had with Mr. Rothstein, it was very obvious he knew what he was doing and was working for the best possible outcome for me. He was always very responsive, getting back to me on the day I tried to contact him and he was very friendly and easy to talk to. I would recommend Mr. Rothstein to everybody and anyone who needs a criminal defense attorney. He will get you the best possible result. I cannot thank him enough. Sofia
Professional and Successful
I recently received a summons for Public Urination in NYC. There are two ways for this to be charged. 153.09 of the Health Code which is a misdemeanor and 116-18(6) of the New York City Administrative code which is just a violation. I was charged with the misdemeanor, 153.09, but Mr. Rothstein explained my options. Since my summons was for the downtown court, there was little chance of the charges being dropped. He said he'd definitely be able to have it lowered to the lesser charge and have the case sealed, but if I could get a doctor's note, then he'd be able to have it dropped completely. I was able to obtain a doctor's note and Mr. Rothstein successfully got the charges dropped. The proceedings were sealed and I now have a clean record.
Through the process, Mr. Rothstein was very professional and available. He kept me informed and responded quickly to my emails. I'm not sure how other firms work, but I always spoke directly to Mr. Rothstein which was comforting, since he was able to answer all my questions. Matthew
Professional, Quick, Excellent Criminal Defense Lawyer
Mr. Rothstein answered my legal advice question and offered his services and after reviewing his and some other lawyer's offers, I decided to hire Mr. Rothstein. He was really quick with his email replies and answered all my questions, even while on vacation. The case was Petit Larceny with bench warrant. He resolved it quickly and professionally. I would most definitely recommend Mr. Rothstein. Marco
Excellent Lawyer With Superb Professionalism And Knowledge To Win, I Highly Recommend Mr. Rothstein To Anyone Who Needs Counsel.
My case was handled in a very professional manner and winning with an anticipated outcome. The case was dismissed in my favor as I was the defendant . The plaintiff's counsel filed a Note of Issue on 11/5/2012 and the Compliance Conference was not held according to Preliminary Conference Order so I hired Mr. Rothstein to defend me. Mr. Rothstein demonstrated a set of legal experience as well as knowledge of law to proceed the timeline of the litigation. I want to say "Thank You" to Mr. Rothstein for a superb job! Shawn
Mr. Rothstein is a fantastic attorney. Sure, it sounds awkward and a bit hyperbolic to describe a legal professional as "fantastic", but Mr. Rothstein deserves the praise. From the first call to the resolution, he was always available and determined to achieve the outcome most favorable to me. When I say most favorable, I mean that he fought hard to reduce the severity of the courts punishment when he could easily have me accept the verdict. Knowledgeable, professional, hardworking - just few adjectives to describe Mr. Rothstein. Chaudry
To put it short, I was frightened about my case for I have never been arrested for anything. Mr. Rothstein assured me of getting out of this case - unscathed. I was in and out of court in less than a half hour. Prior to facing the judge, he already knew what to say and what to do and he briefed me with everything, prior to the hearing; keeping me informed of materials and information he acquired, 2 weeks before the hearing. He even gave a courtesy call, the day ahead to remind me (not that I would have forgotten). I will definitely refer him to anyone, who asks me about a lawyer or legal matters. Best of all, he did not charge me a penny more than what he said it would cost ---- a very honest lawyer! Yazmina
