I have been an attorney since 1983 and have been practicing as a sole practitioner,  Ellen Rothstein, Attorney at Law, since 1990. In that time, I have gained extensive experience as a litigator, negotiator and counsel in several focused practice areas, including:

My legal practice also includes contract-based "of counsel" and appellate services.

I am admitted to practice in New York, the U.S. Court of Appeals 2nd Circuit and the U.S. District Court, Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.

I belong to the New York State Bar Association and the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. With a legal education that includes an LL.M. in Corporate Law from New York University School of Law, a Juris Doctor from Hofstra University School of Law, and a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics from the State University of New York at Albany (SUNYA) from which I graduated magna cum laude, I am prepared to consult with you and represent your interests.

Resolving a business or construction dispute can be quite a challenge without an experienced lawyer familiar with the New York judicial process.

I have been an attorney since 1983 and since 1990, I have been practicing as a sole practitioner. The services I provide in New York City and the surrounding areas are custom tailored to each of my client's specific needs. When you retain my services, I make it a priority to inform you of every material development and to keep you involved in every aspect of your case.

I personally handle your case from start to finish. I do not hand off any part of your case to a paralegal or other staff member. I manage all facets of the case, including document preparation, investigation, processing and other litigation management responsibilities, including appeals.
