My years of negotiating complex corporate transactions kept me tuned in to commercial needs of both sides, so we could close deals. However, while corporate law was interesting and intellectually stimulating, I wanted to add a more human element to my work. So, I began exploring ways to apply my negotiating skills to families in emotional distress. I discovered mediation in 1990.

I immersed myself in the field and became passionate about the process when I saw what it could do. I decided to devote my career to this approach to solving conflict.

Transformative change can take place when someone's pain, disappointment, loss, confusion, and many other difficult emotions, are finally acknowledged.

I learn every day from my clients, and work my hardest to connect by truly hearing their needs and helping them get to a place where they can start the next phase of their lives at peace.


In addition to successfully handling, from beginning to end, many hundreds of divorce cases in my private practice since 1996, I am an advanced practitioner member of the Academy of Family Mediators, the NYS Council for Divorce Mediation, and the Family and Divorce Mediation Council of Greater NY. I am also a member of the NJ Association of Family Mediators, and the NY Association of Collaborative Professionals.

I taught mediation at Brooklyn Law School, and am a former member of the Board of Directors of the Family and Divorce Mediation Council of Greater NY. I was certified by the NYS Unified Court System as a Mediation Trainer, pursuant to which I trained hundreds of community members, including judges, lawyers, and therapists in mediation. I am also the former director of Victim Services Mediation Program, which mediated over 5000 cases per year.

I also mediated hundreds of Title VII Equal Employment Opportunity cases for the US Postal Service and served as a certified mediator for the Manhattan and Brooklyn Mediation Centers.

Before turning to mediation and collaborative law full-time, I practiced corporate law for 8 years at two large nationally known law firms, Mudge Rose Guthrie Alexander and Ferdon in New York City and Steefel Levitt and Weiss in San Francisco. I am a member of the New York, New Jersey and California Bars.

Extraordinary lawyer
Lori Goldstein is a deeply knowledgeable, experienced and compassionate person who guided me through a recent conflict. I observed constant dedication, a quick response to unexpected issues and professional, ethical behavior. She negotiates with wisdom, never acrimony and manages to achieve a positive resolution such that both parties feel heard and understood- not an easy task. She is an outstanding mediation attorney.
