A Personal Injury & Criminal Defense Attorney

At Rothstein Law PLLC, I know that your case is very important to you. That’s why I treat every case I handle like it’s the most important case in the office.

I will handle your case from start to finish; it won’t be passed from associate to associate like at some larger firms. I handle only a manageable number of cases at any given time and I don’t accept every case that walks in the door. This gives me the time to treat each client like he or she is my most important client. Following this business model has allowed me to recover millions of dollars for my clients.

Appointments: If you cannot make it to my office, I am happy to visit you in your home or in the hospital.

Fees: I handle personal injury cases on a contingency basis so you pay no attorney fee unless you recover money to compensate you for your injury. In criminal cases, I generally can work out a reasonable payment plan. I accept credit cards, PayPal, Venmo, and Chase Quick Pay.
