    • I recommend Evan Goldsen.

    Evan is smart, knowledgeable and well-spoken. He manages a case in a calm, strategic and fair manner. The IEP meetings are controlled and productive- not emotionally draining. You really can't do better.

  2. Smart, prepared, thinks on his feet,

    • I recommend Evan Goldsen.
    • I hired Evan 1-3 years ago.
    • Evan handled my Mediation matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Even though the law might stink (which it often does) your attorney has to deal for you within the law. Can’t tell you how many times I wailed about how unfair the rules I was made to play by were. And I was suing another attorney. The rules do not favor the public. BUT Mr. Goldsen was thorough, smart and relentless. I won a very suitable judgment from a crooked attorney and Mr. Goldsen was relentless in pursuit of Steve Feldman who had cheated us. When Feldman didnt pay what he owed us Mr. Goldsen stuck to it and we have finally gotten our judgement. You cannot do better than this young, smart, well prepared attorney. Maybe your case sucks but he’ll fight to get you everything he can.
    And let’s face it..in special ed law..it is weighted toward the School Districts..certainly not the students..this law is not for the faint of heart..don’t blame your attorney if the law he has to work with is less than it should be.
    I’d recommend Mr. Goldsen to anyone..he and his partner have a “Kid Whisperer” element to their practice. They understand the client’s issues and know the best way to fight for them even tho many have failed. They will succeed.

  3. A Hopeful Beginning With A Disappointing Ending.

    • I do not recommend Evan Goldsen.
    • I hired Evan more than 3 years ago.
    • Evan handled my Education matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Mr. Goldsen along with his partner took on our case as a referral with a considerable amount of fee discounted. We were very grateful for that. Without it, we would not have been able to move forward. However, having a year to ponder the results compared to having paid a full rate; I am compelled to say that I am very disappointed. We only had two options, both of which were bad and we needed a resolution desperately. Looking back now frustrates me about the total process and how we were left with little to no acceptable options. I'm angry that there were no waivers for future claims which was the end result...a total failure. That is the reason for this review which I deemed necessary.
