    • I do not recommend Steven Goldstein.

    If you are looking for a top-tier, professional law firm - the best money can buy - Seven A. Goldstein and associates is not a good fit.

    My girlfriend is transferring schools and needs to re-apply for a Student Visa. She is from Venezuela and her residency has been approved. But, she needs to maintain her legal status for another year while she waits for her permanent residency status to become official. Going back to Venezuela is not an option as they may not let her leave. I called and explained the situation clearly and outlined that things were time sensitive. I also mentioned that I wanted the best lawyer money could buy.

    Marian, the receptionist, scheduled an appointment for two weeks from the date of my call. My girlfriend took the day off work. I took the morning off to Skype in from Silicon Valley. Ada Pozo was 25 minutes late. She walked into the conference room for 45 seconds, told me and my girlfriend that there was a mix-up. Wires were crossed and their end and they had scheduled an appointment for a marriage consultation. Before either of us could get a word in, she walked out.

    Marian informed us that their Attorney that handles Student Visa cases was out of town and wouldn't be available for 3 weeks. There wasn't even a hint of an apologetic tone, let alone an apology. When I reminded her of our situation, she was rude and dismissive. I could care less about bedside manner. I just want a law-firm that can keep my girlfriend in the county until her residency becomes official.

    Steven Goldstein is a hands down attorney. After my father's deportation in 2010 I was referred to Goldtstein by one of his colleague's attorney Mario Lovo. Both my parents and I were on removal proceedings, we had gone to several attorneys that failed to re-open our case. Steven did it! and I will forever be grateful with him. Not only did he re-open my case, but he as able to re-open my mom's case as well. Mr. Goldstein thank you so so much, you have changed my life a great deal!. I also met Mr. Goldstein's wife, she handled my mom's residence case. What a wonderful woman, and professional attorney the two of you are a powerful couple!. I want to thank her as well. Wishing you, your wife, and your firm much success in the future. Thanks again!.
    Sincerely,
    Laura R

Steven has the experience/knowledge and team to make plans a reality. I am so happy I put my trust in Steven....it was worth every dollar and I have the green card to prove it!

    • I recommend Steven Goldstein.
    • I hired Steven 1-3 years ago.
    • Steven handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    After getting out of the worst possible situation I could have been placed in by another immigration attorney, Mr. Goldstein definitely gave me piece of mind in reference to my fiancée case. His firm was very efficient and were able to put together the best case possible for his removal proceedings hearing. He is a very honest and experienced immigration attorney who carefully looks after his clients and will give you all the facts the moment you speak to him. I would recommend his firm to anyone seeking legal immigration counsel.

    Mr Goldstein represented my son in a difficult immigration case. He was very professional and confident about his jobb. We had hired previous attorneys who were all about money. Mr Goldstein and his firm dealt with us in a professional manner. Everyone at his firm were kind and helpful. When you are going through a very rough time and need guidance and legal help, this is the firm to represent you . I would recommend Steven Goldstein to anyone who needs help in immigration law.. He is knowledgeable, trustworthy and confident. Thank you for everything you have done for my son and my family. May God bless you!

    I was facing deportation for an aggravated felony charge which every lawyer that I called said there was no hope. In the beginning I hired a lawyer that had no empathy to my situation and was only concerned with money. Then I met Mr. Goldstein and his staff who knew this was a hard case but they were not going to let me just give up. They gave me hope when I felt like it was hopeless.
    Mr. Goldstein is extremely smart, confident, and positive. He won my case and gave me back my life which I can't say thank you for enough.

    Thank you Teri, you kept my mom sane through all this, you are a beautiful person and I know you will be a great lawyer that makes a difference in many lives.

    Thank you Carlo, man you were so respectful and down to earth, I appreciate everything you did for my case.

    If you read this review trust me when I say this law firm is the truth and they know what they are doing.

    It's hard to describe my gratitude for the excellent job you and your staff did on my case. When I was completely hopeless, you and your team gave me back the strength to stand up and fight for myself. Thank you again for the hard work and for making my dream come true.
    I would definitely recommend you to any friend or family that may need your services.
    I wish you and your company continued success.

    I was living in fear of being forced to return to my country because of the conditional status of my residence being married to and then divorced from an American citizen. A friend of mine suggested to discuss my situation with Mr. Goldstein. I was a pleasure working with him as I was always informed about the process to remove my conditional status and how long it would take. Of course there was no guarantee but the chances of a favorable outcome were improved due to Mr. Goldstein's experience in immigration matters. I am glad to report that my Green Card finally came and lifted my spirits to the sky! Thank you Atty. Goldstein! You've made my American dream come true!

    • I recommend Steven Goldstein.

    I am a Canadian wishing to apply for green card.
    I had consulted with 4 of the top immigration lawyers in the Miami area. 2 were paid consults, 2 were not. Mr.Goldstein did not charge me for the initial consult . Of all of the people I spoke with Mr.Goldstein was by far the most helpful. He answered all of my questions fully and completely. With the others there was a sense of withholding key informations untiI I would agree to a paid retainer. Not so with Mr.Goldstein. From the short time of my consult he stood out as an honest and credible professional . I will be using Mr.Goldstein for my application.

We're ready to help. Contact us for an appointment - 24hours, 7 days a week.
