Testimonials

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.

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!

- Federal criminal defense attorney (in unsolicited email), February 2015


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.

- Co-Counsel, multi-defendant federal trial


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


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


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.

Goldstein pounced!

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


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


You were the best lawyer in the courtroom.

That was the best closing argument I have ever seen.
