Attorney Mike Rothman is the founder and owner of the Law Office of Michael S. Rothman, located in Rockville, Maryland. A highly rated, award-winning trial lawyer, Mr. Rothman devotes his practice to providing the highest level of advocacy and support possible to those facing serious criminal charges as well as to consumers victimized by unethical or unlawful business practices.

Serving a diverse range of clients across Maryland and throughout the Washington, D.C., metro region, Mr. Rothman has achieved unprecedented success fighting to protect his clients' rights and liberties in the face of complex legal challenges.

As a defense attorney, he has helped hundreds of clients achieve favorable outcomes for their charges involving DUI/DWI, drug crimes, sex crimes, white collar crimes and more.

A staunch advocate for consumer rights, he has helped countless individuals secure restitution for the damages they incurred as the result of fraud, spamming, data theft and the unlawful usage of people's personal information.

A 1992 graduate of Emory University, Mr. Rothman earned his master's degree in public administration from The George Washington University in 1995. He then attended the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor, with honors, in 1999.

Along with being licensed to practice in both Maryland and Washington, D.C., he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the District of Maryland and the District of Columbia as well as before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and the Supreme Court of the United States.
