Aggravated Manslaughter The case began as front page news that was followed by the indictment of a woman with over a quarter century of nursing experience.

It ended quietly when the State announced that it was abandoning the case against an innocent woman.

Armed Drug Trafficking Our client was facing a life sentence. After a full investigation, we found irrefutable evidence the arresting officer lied under oath.

The State dismissed this case.

"I called Mr. Rothman to consult about a pending issue with the Florida Bar. He took my call at 5:20 in the afternoon. He listened to my concerns, provided me with a realistic view of how to address the issues and proposed a plan of response. Throughout the conversation he was professional and very informative. I greatly appreciate his time and candor."
