Unlike corporate law, I go into the courtroom. I am not stuck in an office reading contracts that are 500 pages long. My clients are not executives. They are the elderly, union workers, babies, kids, poor people, single mothers, immigrants, undocumented workers.
I strongly believe in clients empowering themselves by understanding the legal process and their legal rights. We try our best to educate each and every client about their case, helping them to understand the good and the bad and what they need to do to be an informed client. We give out FREE reports to clients that explain some of the most common concerns and issues.
We will always try and help a client do whatever is necessary to understand documents they prepare themselves.
While we don't coach clients who want to represent themselves, we do offer a number of helpful free reports as well as other resources on our website including informative articles, blogs, checklists and legal forms.
Prior to being a partner with Goldstein and Bashner I was associated with some of the busiest personal injury firms in New York. Additionally, I have had experience in other firms in managing medical malpractice cases.
Having grown up with a member of my family who had a chronic illness and was wheelchair bound makes me more sympathetic and understanding to those with serious injuries.
I have been told by my clients that they feel very comfortable with me. When I talk, I try to make sure it's never "at them" it's always "to them." Most of my clients have invited me to their homes and have told me about their families. My style is easy going. It takes a tremendous amount of strength to be able to talk to all kinds of people without anybody feeling uncomfortable.Personal interests:
I love to travel. I have visited most of this country and have traveled to many other countries. I have a great family and enjoy my time with them. I also love all kinds of music, from jazz to classic rock.
