First and foremost, I do not work for any attorney or para-legal. Just like you I was looking for attorney than can help with my case. Well, it never got that far.
The biggest problem with Mr. Goldstein is his office staff. Apparently they are continuously overbooked as my appointment was reschedule three times (!), one time because there was religious holiday (I'm fine with that but why his office would be scheduling appointment week in advance without knowing the attorney will not be present?).
On the final third appointment date they never called and 2 hours later I did call myself. After 10 minutes waiting on the line the attorney took the phone. He was unfamiliar with my case, did not know who I am or wasn't aware of any documents I have sent him over 2 weeks earlier, despite the fact I did have numerous correspondence with his over the e-mail. Nothing. Finally, it turns out that there was some animosity between him and the other attorney that got involved in our case and for that reason mr. Goldstein told me "I'm sure they are other knowledgeable attorneys that would be willing to help". Totally unprofessional, not to say childish, in my opinion.
When looking for reliable, fast, mature and knowledgeable attorney, I would not recommend Mr. Goldstein, because it was simple a waste of three-weeks of time. I cannot say much to his knowledge, but what's the use of your superior immigration-law experience if you do not know how to handle and work with your clients?
Oh, by the way; he said multiple times he will refund my consultation fee, then he said he already did refund it. Up to this day, I have not seen any refund coming, and I will have to go through the bank to get it resolved. I am sure Mr. Goldstein is not in a business of taking someone's $ without rendering a service, but again it just shows how he and his staff are disconnected from maintaining fair relationship with customers (God only knows how he would handle my payment if the fee would go into thousands of dollars).
You have been warned and do yourself a favor and comply with what Mr. Goldstein told me: "I'm sure they are _other_ knowledgeable attorneys that would be willing to help".

We hired Steven Goldstein because he offered us a chance to maybe help us in our immigration issues and when I say maybe its because the previous lawyer I had hired had dismissed my case and told me there was nothing else to be done and my husband would be put on a plane back to the United Kingdom the following week. Steven informed me it was a less than 50% chance but it was more than anything else I had been offered, and as many of you well know its a horrible feeling. Last Thursday my husband was released and we still have a ways to go but Steven is a wonderful lawyer who really cares about his clients. The other wonderful thing with him is he stays in contact with you the whole time which is wonderful so you know where you are at , at all times of the case. So our family would like to Thank You very much for everything your have done for us and still continue to do. his staff are very polite, kind , caring and friendly . If you want results then Steven Goldstein is who you need to call.

First of all, i am not an employer or friend. I just searched today for lawyers in miami in avvo com and i really wanted to get free consultation so i know how much to spend on second consultation... I went to appt today and he told me what to do- what document to write, how to write, what to write..everything. And didn't charge anything. And he is very polite and nice person overall.. Which you don't see very often in lawyer offices... Im so HAPPy , and so thankful. I saw few lawyers in these days.. All of them were scammers. Except Mr. Steven Goldstein.

Mr. Goldstein, was absolutely helpful and professional, answered every question I had (and I had a lot of questions). I would recommend Mr. Goldstein to anyone, he's the best at what he does!

When we met Steven, we noticed how professional, confident and passionate for what he does.
In a relatively short time, he was able to bring me and my wife an approval for our Asylum application. We are especially thankful for his team’s professionalism and the sensitive nature by which they handled our case.
We would recommend Steven to anyone.

I'm so happy I have found Steve after trying many other attorneys. He is a person that you can trust, that is not afraid of taking challenging cases and that is very responsive. Thanks Steve for all your help with this long but successful journey to my citizenship.

I want to thank Mr. Goldstein and the Pozo Goldstein law firm for their very personalized, efficient and totally trustworthy services received by me when I was forced to face my very darkest moment in the U.S. and thought all my hard work and trying to do things correctly had failed and I would be deported through no fault of my own. Then I saw their ad on TV and met Mrs. Pozo and Mr. Goldstein, and everything changed. I couldn't believe how they took an almost lost case like mine and kept me in the US and really led me step by step through the entire process. They are always available for any kind of consultation and I have recommended their firm to everybody I know. Thank you.

After a long and painful process of 4 years in removal proceedings Mr Goldstein and team were able to achieve a result that will change my life forever. I could not be happier with the outcome. Being able to stay with my family in the United States is the most magnificient and generous thing that has ever happened to me. Infinite gratituted for the efforts, professionalism and honesty of a whole team of remarkable and sensible human beings that stood by my side all along the road. Thank You Mr Goldstein once again. God Bless You all.

Before retaining Steven Goldstein, we previously worked on our immigration case with three different attorneys and were rejected four times. It was a seven year battle, including two years with Mr Goldstein. In the end, when it counts, Steven Goldstein got the job done! Hooray! He did it when no one else could! We are very happy!

i have been with represented by this lawyer since 2008 the process was long but the outcome was excellent i am from jamaica and was granted an asylum to stay in this country. i am married to an american with 3 kids that are american, but my case was very difficult because i applied for an american passport and was arrested with a felony and america do not forgive that, in fact that is considered an act of terrorist. Dont rely on advise of friends, family, and unknowlegable lawyers. i would recommend the law firm of pozo/ goldstein 305 856-0400 they tell it to you straight if they cant help you then the answer is on your knees praying to whatever god you serve.

We have no words to express how happy we are to have hired this firm and Mr. Goldstein for my bf defense with Inmigration. After searching and interviewing with a few lawyers in Miami, we decided to stay with them and we have not regrets. With their defense we could vacate a criminal record from 1998 that put my bf in removal proceedings from US. Today, Thanks to this firm, my boyfriend has regained his green card back for another 10 years!!!! Do not hesitate to hire them for criminal and inmigrations matters

My wife and myself are very happy and satisfied and want to say thank you for your tremendous defense you did to my wife against a possible negative results of immigration benefits. I read one more time the response letter that you prepared for y wife's defense and I see the great, and very proffesional work written on that document. In consequence, she has been granted conditional permanent residence in the United States.
Once again, in the name of both of us, we say thank you so much and may God bless you, your families and all your group and we wish the best for your firm.

Being a former client of Steven Goldstein I can assure that he was my best choice. He is knowledgeable, professional and determind. I was advised to use services of Pozo Goldstein & Gomez and now I am happy with the results of my case, it was beyond my expectations.If you have any problems with immigration, I would highly recommend Steven Goldstein and his office. Pozo Goldstein team is experienced, professional and very helpful any time. Thank you, all of you for assisting me with my case during those 6 months, I do really appreciate your hard work!

How can you possibly know you've found the right attorneys amongst an endless multitude of choices? And knowing that the difference between hiring the best legal counsel can be the very difference between an acquittal or a conviction? citizenship or deportation? freedom or incarceration? The impact of such a decision is monumental. The importance of making the right choice is crucial. And the consequence of choosing incorrectly can be utterly devastating. Could there be a more essential objective than to obtain the peace of mind in knowing that your legal issues or those of your loved ones are in the absolute best hands available? And to secure this knowledge with absolute confidence and complete certainty? Clearly in such a time of need there can be no room for error.
I was extremely fortunate to have been referred to the partnership of Pozo Goldstein & Gomez. They are handling an ongoing immigration and criminal matter involving my life partner and are achieving results that I believe could not be achieved by any other law firm in Miami or beyond. They are doing so with the utmost professionalism, unwavering determination, unsurpassable legal expertise, and a capable and caring support staff to assist us every step of the way.
They are one of just a few law offices capable of handling both immigration and criminal cases within the same firm. Their ability to handle both matters simultaneously and all in house is critical if you consider the need for precise timing when coordinating separate Federal and State charges. Retaining a second firm to handle criminal charges independently could pose untold potential risks and consequences. Imagine the negative impact of having to courier documents and files back and forth, deal with possible hearing conflicts and endless interoffice correspondence. Not to mention the hardship of separate or even double billing! We simply couldn't afford to lose that kind of efficiency with so very much at stake.
Steven Goldstein is dignified, sharp, proficient, and relentless. His presence in the court room commands respect. He is without question at the very top of his game. A former Federal immigration prosecutor, he knows every detail and aspect of immigration law. In my opinion, there does not exist a more knowledgeable or experienced immigration attorney anywhere. He is the quite simply the best there is.
And as our case progresses, I am told other members of the firm will become involved. I look forward to meeting them and to their own unique contributions. Hiring Pozo Goldstein & Gomez has given us access to an entire coordinated team effort. There's no question we are in the very best of hands.
Whenever I am asked about our representation, as I have been repeatedly throughout this process, everyone has given their resounding endorsement to Pozo Goldstein & Gomez. Even, much to my surprise, other immigration and criminal attorneys! They are truly a firm that stands in a league of their own.
You might imagine that retaining such a powerful law firm could not possibly be an affordable option. And yet they have provided us this outstanding service at a reasonable and competitive cost. I found the best representation possible and I could never assign a value to having them in our corner and by our side. I am confident that they will make every effort, will leave no stone unturned, and tirelessly advocate on our behalf in their attempt to resolve each and every legal issue we are confronting.
The enormity of navigating through both the Federal and State legal process overwhelming. There can be no margin for error. I am privileged and honored to have the best legal team available to represent us during this most dire of times. They have not let us down so far and I am certain they never will.
It is without reservation that I emphatically recommend Pozo Goldstein & Gomez attorneys at law in Miami, Florida.

The staff at Pozo Goldstein really got my family and I out of a bind. I highly recommend this Firm for your Immigration case. I visited with so many Attorneys before hiring them and they were the most experienced, knowledgeable, and professional. So thankful to have chosen them! Thanks to them and all of their hard-work!

As a previous client I can tell you that I am more than satisfied with the outcome of my case and the services that were rendered by Pozo Goldstein. In my view, my case for Citizenship was stacked against me, almost to the point of deporation. This did not occur and today I am a Citizen. I beleive you'll receive the best that they can do in your case.
