Scott M. Rothman

Principal

Scott Rothman, a partner with the firm, is a dependable adviser and accomplished litigator. In his view, the only way to solve any significant legal dilemma is to start by asking the right questions.  Whether in the role of consultant or advocate, he becomes absorbed in the world of the client, and navigates with both legal and common sense acumen.

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 has earned him accolades as one of Pennsylvania's premier title claims litigators.

Although Mr. Rothman devotes the bulk of his practice to real estate engagements, he also sustains 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.
