In The News

Avvo - Five Star Client Review - February 2016 - Not just an attorney, a genuine caring human being - I met Michael A Goldstein in 2010 after I experienced my first DUI. I've never been in trouble with the law I was petrified and scared. Michael assured me that he would handle all details and he did without a doubt. 2013 a year I will never forget, I experienced some severe issues with alcoholism. I was in one accident and arrested eight months later and faced myself with another two DUI counts in 1 year! Again not understanding the legal system or the language of law that I was facing, Michael again assisted me in handling every detail and assuring me that we would get through this together. He also stood by me while I seeked treatment, simply put...he cared!

It has not been an easy road but I followed what was suggested and I'm grateful so many ways to be able to share that Michael was not just my attorney but a caring compassionate and empathetic human being. When you follow directions and do what is told especially for me who did not understand and still struggles with the legal system, a lot of hard work paid off and I did everything that I was supposed to do and more! I'm almost three years sober now and it has changed my life when I think of the law I think of Michael A Goldstein. Judges & courts recognize those who help themselves. Michael has the best interest of the client at heart even though sometimes we are not always right.
