Robert Rotstein

Robert Rotstein grew up in Culver City, California, then the location of the famed MGM Studios and so the true “Hollywood.” At an early age, he became hooked on legal dramas—not only Perry Mason, the archetype of the legal mystery, but also on the politically charged The Defenders—lawyers solving crimes and doing justice. Perhaps it was inevitable that Rotstein would one day become an attorney whose practice focuses on the entertainment industry, and later a writer of novels about a lawyer. During his legal career, he’s represented Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Lionel Ritchie, John Sayles, James Cameron, and all the major motion picture studios, among others. Rotstein's Corrupt Practices (Seventh Street Books, June 2013) is about Parker Stern, an L.A.-based attorney, who takes on a legal case against a powerful, dangerous religious cult. The next Parker Stern novel, Reckless Disregard (Seventh Street Books), in which a reclusive video game designer does battle with a powerful movie mogul, will be released in June 2014.
