About Me

I have been in the practice of Law for 46 years.  I would ask you to go to my website which is: www.corkygoldstein.com to learn about me and review my complete professional resume.  I think you will recognize that I have the necessary broad experience  and proven skills to represent you in any criminal matter,but also in other legal issues.  I am a former Deputy District Attorney in Philadelphia, but havr been in private practice for 35 years.   I know the law very well and the legal system.,especially the criminal justice system in Pennsylvania.  Criminal law is like learning a new language for most all clients, and defendant's need a well-qualified attorney on all levels who will represent them with  not onlyknowledge of the law but with personal concern for the client. A strong and respected advocate for you.  Choosing a lawyer is the most important part of your case.  You want someone who sincerely cares.  I think once you read my website and what others have said about my work, YOU will have a  verycomfortable feeling that you are in very good hands.

  • Roger R. Laguna

    I highly endorse this lawyer. Mr. Goldstein is a true problem solver. When our client was stuck in a very contentious real estate case that was dragging on, we selected Corky to mediate it for us. He quickly resolved the case and we were thrilled.
