Great Experience
Steven and his firm were great. I had a lot of unpaid medical bills that they took care of for me. He got the bills reduced and put more money in my pocket. I highly recommend him and his firm. They were great.

Steven was Fantastic!!
Besides being a great lawyer Steven is a wonderful caring person. He took my case to trial and they settled right before jury selection. He is the real deal.

Excellent Attorney
I was rear-ended in an accident in 2011. My car was totaled and I sustained back and neck injuries that required surgery. Mr. Goldstein was there throughout the whole process. He went the extra mile calling me after my procedures. After choosing not to settle, we went to court and we won a larger settlement from the jury in part because of Mr. Goldstein’s opening argument and overall presentation. I’m grateful for all the work he and his staff. did on my behalf.

Steven was awesome
My car was T Boned. I missed work and had surgery. Steven filed a lawsuit immediately and settled my case in under two years. He is aggressive but personable. I highly recommended him.

Steven did a great job!
I was hit by a car as a pedestrian. The insurance company gave me a very hard time, but Steven fought for me and got me a great settlement. I would recommend Steven to anyone injured from due to a car accident

Extremely helpful & compassionate
Steven is an utmost professional. I used him in a personal situation I had with a family member. He was stern with the opposition and we resolved the issue that same day. I will always highly recommend Steven!

Thank You, Steven!
Thank you, Steven! Your hard work paid off for me and gave me and my family some solace and closure to an otherwise painful and surreal experience. I appreciated your preparedness, hard work and dedication to my case and I would certainly, without reservation, recommend you to my friends and family.
