Meet the Office

Paul S. Rothstein, P.A.

Lead Attorney


Attorney Paul S. Rothstein was born and raised in the city of East Brunswick, New Jersey, but has called Gainesville, Florida home since he attended the University of Florida Levin College of Law in 1977. 

His passion for law was discovered when he was thirteen years old. After giving a speech at his Bar Mitzvah, friends and family advised him to become a lawyer. And from that moment on he knew it was what he wanted to do, assuming becoming a Major League Baseball player did not work out.


At eighteen he left New Jersey to attend American University in Washington, D.C. There he received a Bachelors of Science in Economics and International Studies. Upon graduating he traveled the Middle East region and Europe before heading down south for law school. He opened his own practice in 1982 in the same building he practices from today.​
