What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Goldstein & Hayes, PC has received the highest rating available from Martindale Hubbell, an independent service that gauges legal abilities based on the opinions of other lawyers, not advertising dollars. While we occasionally lecture, teach and author publications, we differ philosophically from firms that avail themselves to every marketing and self-promotion opportunity. Many lawyers trumpet their victories but say little about their losses that could have and should have been avoided. We are pleased to have been able to establish an enviable history without ever placing the firm’s interests ahead of our clients.

Our lawyers take the time to get to know the families we represent, which allows us to tailor our strategies to their specific strengths. We strive to show our appreciation of the trust our clients and their family members place in us during what is invariably a difficult time in their lives. We view and treat those we are privileged to represent as our friends and encourage their calls and questions. While the tone of the firm is casual, our work product is second to none. To help you decide if our personalities, style and approach are a good match for you, we recommend a free personal consultation.
