  1. Robert Rothstein is a great guy. Upstanding, fair, compassionate, humorous, and understand ‘we are all human beings’.
    This is not a man who lets his title or job position give him a big head.

    I have enjoyed working with him on numerous occasions.

  2. Like he says just don’t break the law and you won’t have to worry about dealing with him in the court system. I can give a few tips too. Don’t talk on the cell phone, Have you kids buckled in the proper way if they need a car seat have one if the are big enough make sure they and you wear your seat belt, don’t speed, don’t make left turns from a right lane or right turns from a left lane (that means not going around the car in front of you no matter how long they are taking to turn), and I mean this is not against the law but if it takes only 10 min to get somewhere for an appointment please don’t leave 10 min before your appointment time there is always traffic in Lakewood Instead of having to rush leave 20 min so that leaves plenty of time for traffic.

  3. question. Why is it that prosecutors are always more leneant when someone shows up with a lawyer? Its almost like they want lawyers to make money. .

  4. The Judge is a LAwyer, the Prosecutor is a Lawyer if the defendant brings a Lawyer then there are 3 lawyers involved in a case. That is why the court is set up to almost DEMAND that defendants do not represent themselves and that they should get a Lawyer. So, if you bring a lawyer to court, your lawyer will speak to another lawyer (The Prosecutor) and they will then go before another Lawyer (The Judge) and work things out.

  5. Most Judges and Prosecuters in Nj have private Law Practices and they get very offended when you do not come in with an attorney they see it as not respecting and supporting their industry NJ has the most Lawyers in the Country per captia they also have the most towniships and police and regulations and govt workers one out of every 4 people in nj work in some govt or govt related capacity if you are an ordinary tax paying citizen in NJ you are living in the wrong state
