"I had the pleasure of watching you in action. You were absolutely phenomenal.
~ Attorney, Unsolicited Email, February 2015

When you select an attorney to represent you in potentially life-changing criminal litigation, you must dig deeper than simply reviewing facially attractive website pages of prospective attorneys and law firms. You should ask any prospective attorney about their actual trial experience defending clients in complex criminal prosecutions, how many government witnesses and what range of witnesses they have cross-examined, how many substantial opening and closing arguments they have delivered in major government prosecutions, and how many unique legal motions they have filed that have resulted in precedent-setting decisions. We then invite you to compare our record and experience.

We have de-constructed prosecutions involving millions and millions of pages of pretrial discovery. We have cross-examined virtually every conceivable witness—from cooperating corporate executives, to experts in arcane topics, to lifetime criminals. We have delivered lengthy opening statements and closing arguments in complex trials lasting months. And we have developed creative, precedent setting legal arguments that are the subject matter of national publications, and emulated by attorneys nationwide.

A federal or otherwise serious criminal prosecution jeopardizes your freedom, family and reputation—all that is worth living for. You need lawyers with actual trial experience and a record of success defending federal and state investigations and prosecutions. If you or a family member is the subject or target of a criminal investigation or prosecution, please contact us to learn more.


I was one of seven lawyers participating in an 8 week trial for multiple defendants in federal court in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rob Goldstein was one of the other lawyers. His preparation, mastery of the facts and performance in the courtroom were outstanding. I have been in practice for 33 years, with 4 years as an assistant county prosecutor and the rest as a criminal defense attorney. I have had more than 250 jury trials in my career and seen many lawyers try cases. Rob Goldstein is as fine an attorney as I have ever seen.

Goldstein pounced!

~ Boston Magazine, November 2003 (Describing cross-examination of federal agent)

I have spent a career watching and interacting with attorneys - as the elected district attorney, as a line prosecutor and defense attorney - you are one of a handful of the best lawyers I have ever seen in the courtroom.

~ Father of client, 2001 (Former elected district attorney, current defense attorney)

Your argument was the only (defense argument) that made me uncomfortable. I kept hoping it would end.

~ Federal Prosecutor to Attorney Goldstein after multi-defendant federal trial

Mr. Goldstein, I practice federal criminal defense in Oklahoma City. Last week I had the pleasure of watching you in action...I saw some of your cross examination on Thursday and your closing argument on Friday. You were absolutely phenomenal and I was very impressed with your trial skills. You are one hell of a trial lawyer!

Rob guided me through the most difficult time in my life ... His preparation for the case and his execution in trial were truly the difference ... I truly trusted him with my life and he came through. Not a great promoter or guy who likes to hype, but he delivers where it counts. I am truly grateful that I selected his name over the vast number of attorneys in the Boston area. I rarely provide recommendations, but in Rob's case, I recommend that anyone facing serious criminal charges, where their freedom and livelihood is at stake, that they contact Rob.
