Firm Overview

We have 45 years of experience in this field. The firm was established in 1963 right after I graduated from law school.

My firm's focus is tenacious and aggressive family law litigation.

Example cases

I have dealt with highly complicated financial divorces with multiple assets, tax and accounting issues. I've also handled very aggressive, well-litigated child custody cases.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

It chose me after years of commercial litigation and tax litigation.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I encourage my clients to be as proactive as they are capable because is it reduces all costs. I prefer to work with clients who are computer literate because it speeds up the process.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am willing to review anything once I am retained. I ask clients to write me wish lists or check lists. It's part of the collaborative process which helps to figure out how to approach a case.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I won't take responsibility in this regard. Divorce and custody matters are very complex and it's naive to think a client can handle the issues at hand given how emotionally involved they are.

Arnold Goldstein

I've practiced law all my life and I'm trained in forensic accounting. I also have experience in business and commercial legal work, which I bring to the table when I practice family law. Additionally, I have a wealth of experience in litigation.

There is no substitute for my years of experience practicing law.

My strengths are that I'm a good listener and a lot of my thinking is outside the box.

Personal interests:

My biggest interest is family. I am also an avid fly fisherman and photography has been a hobby of mine for many years.
