Rothstein Donatelli provides bold proven advocacy for our clients. We have highly skilled and nationally recognized criminal defense attorneys, civil rights litigators, and Indian law practitioners and we use the expertise we have developed across these areas to serve our clients.

Our criminal defense attorneys skillfully handle a wide range of criminal cases, from complex capital offenses to simple assaults, and bring to each case a commitment to aggressively pursue the best outcome for our clients. Our criminal defense attorneys also have extensive experience representing professionals in licensing matters.

Our civil rights litigators file lawsuits on behalf of victims of sexual abuse by employees of schools and religious organizations, those who have been wrongfully arrested or been the victim of excessive force by police, and those who die while in custody due to medical neglect. We forcefully fight for the rights of our clients in order to obtain favorable settlements and trial verdicts in both state and federal courts.

Our Indian law practitioners are committed to advancing the sovereignty and protecting the interests of tribal governments and tribal entities. We have extensive experience in Indian law matters, including Indian gaming, economic development, natural resources, self-government, the Indian Child Welfare Act, labor and employment, and leases and rights-of-way. Through effective communication, wide-ranging experience in federal Indian and tribal law, and the trusted relationships built over decades of tribal, state, and federal collaborations, our Indian law practice group delivers unrivaled legal services to its tribal clients. Our services range from advice on personnel matters to big-picture enterprise development. Our services to tribal clients have included preparing thorough evaluations, assessments, and investigations; negotiating complex business deals, leases, and rights-of-way; identifying community and business needs; and implementing effective defense strategies to reduce the risk of litigation.
