Scott Rothman, a partner with the firm, is a dependable adviser and accomplished litigator. In his view, the only way to solve a legal dilemma is to start by asking the right questions. Whether in the role of consultant or advocate, he helps people and companies understand how the law provides answers, and what to do when the answer isn’t clear.
Mr. Rothman founded the firm's real estate practice, encompassing both litigation and transactional matters. Through his work on behalf of the major title underwriters, he has developed the tools to get deals done right, and to cure deals gone wrong. In the courtroom, his track record for unwinding frauds and resolving property disputes has earned him accolades as one of Pennsylvania's premier title claims litigators.
While Mr. Rothman devotes the bulk of his practice to real estate engagements, he and his team also sustain a general civil practice across the Greater Philadelphia region, including South Jersey. In that capacity, he counsels business owners and individuals, and offers commercial and personal litigation services, including monetary and injunctive claims.
Prior to attending law school, Mr. Rothman served in Americorps for two years as an assistant construction manager for Habitat for Humanity in North Philadelphia, and then taught public high school for a year in the same neighborhood. He maintains his interest in education through coaching mock trial students, lecturing at Villanova Law School on the subject of real estate, and conducting seminars for attorneys and real estate title professionals. When not in the courtroom or classroom, Scott enjoys community activities with his family in Upper Dublin Township, spicy food, and sailing.
