"Not a great promotor or guy who likes to hype,
BUT HE DELIVERS WHERE IT COUNTS ...
I recommend that anyone facing serious criminal charges, where their freedom and livelihood, is at stake, that they contact Rob."

Learning that one is the subject or target of a government investigation or prosecution is one of the most horrific days in most if not all of our clients’ lives. We understand we are involved in the most important matter in our clients’ lives, and we treat it accordingly. Because our success has afforded us the luxury to accept a limited number of clients, we are able to devote the time and attention that our clients’ matters deserve. We do not operate volume practices, but instead have limited clients who receive the majority of our time. There are no defined days, no defined hours. When we accept a client, we understand their entire life—family, business, and liberty—often hangs in the balance, and we therefore remain available to our clients at all times.

The limited clientele allows us to be proactive, not reactive, when it comes to defending our clients. You will not be calling or emailing us for answers or information (though you are always welcome to do so), we will be calling you—our practices are built upon constant communication and collaboration with our clients. We don’t have regular hours or days of employment—we operate on a 24/7 schedule, understanding that matters of this import need constant attention, strategizing, and communication. On a case by case basis, we determine the extent of the resources necessary to present the most effective defense possible, and have the resources and relationships to do so.

We are well-known and respected by our adversaries, but it is critical for any person targeted or prosecuted by the government to understand that professional prosecutors do not make charging, plea or trial decisions based on friendships or old acquaintances. Instead, like any other attorney, their decisions are based on a careful assessment of the risks and benefits of litigation, including the likelihood of their success if the matter eventually results in a trial. This is precisely why, when confronted with a government investigation or indictment, you need highly skilled and experienced trial attorneys, whom the government understands have the ability to successfully litigate the matter both before and, if necessary, during a trial.

Only a skilled and experienced trial attorney understands whether documents will be helpful or harmful at trial, how to effectively review documents with an eye towards building a persuasive and successful defense, how to intelligently admit and exclude evidence at trial, and how to use the documents and other evidentiary matters to create a winning legal defense. We have spent our careers trying large, significant and complex cases. There are no guarantees of success—the simple fact is that each case presents its own unique challenges. The one constant we provide is our dedication, knowledge, experience and skill. We firmly believe we provide our clients with the absolute best opportunity for success, and invite you to contact us to learn more.

Testimonials

This has been an extraordinary case. It's not hyperbole to use that word. It raised absolutely state-of-the-art legal issues and serious factual issues as well. I think it's appropriate to recognize and commend Mr. Goldstein . . . for working so energetically and effectively on your behalf. This is in the best tradition of the legal profession and it's really made a difference. You're going to get out of prison many years earlier than you would have absent his skill and dedication.

~ Federal Judge, August 7, 2008, re-sentencing hearing

That was the best closing argument I have ever seen.

~ Co-Counsel to Attorney Goldstein after federal trial

I was astonished to learn he had graduated from law school only in 1995. I would have attributed another fifteen years experience to his resume.

~ Federal Judge, October 2001

You were the best lawyer in the courtroom.

~ Federal Prosecutor, 2008, following complex, multi-defendant criminal trial

Goldstein pounced!
