May 2015 News Update: No Charges Filed Against our Client in Venice High School Sexual Assault Case. Michael Goldstein’s client was arrested with several other students based on allegations of sexual assaults. After a thorough investigation by both the defense and prosecution, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office concluded there was “insufficient evidence” to file charges against any of the 15 students who had been arrested. This decision by the DA comes just two months after LAPD announced their “high profile” investigation. During the investigation, our office cooperated with law enforcement and our own investigation revealed a video tape that provided clear evidence that any contact involving our client was consensual. As the Los Angeles Times reported, LAPD has now closed the investigation.

Avvo - Five Star Client Review - October 2014 - After receiving my second DUI with a .09 BAC, and driving on a suspended license, I was terrified of how I was going to handle my case moving forward. Then I met Michael and almost instantly felt at ease. His confidence in his ability to handle my case paired with his extensive knowledge and reputation put my mind at ease and I felt assurance that I was in great hands. He and his team kept me informed and up to date throughout the entire process, and was realistic with me from the beginning in regards to all possible outcomes, both good and bad. In the end, we walked away with a wet and reckless and he got the suspended license charges completely dropped. I was both shocked and overjoyed by this outcome as I truly did not expect him to be able to either charge dropped, let alone BOTH. I am really happy in my choice to work with Michael. He is they type of guy you would 100% work with again but you hope you never have to. If you are looking for someone you can trust to be attentive to your case and take great care of you, this is your guy!!
