Accident Injury Atty
Neal is a top shelf atty that will advise you about issues with your case that may not be clear to you or other attys that practice the same type of law. By directing me and my case he actually cut himself out of the loop and also a percentage of the total recovery that would be his fee, this is one guy who actually cares about doing the right thing! Neal went on to advise legal issues for 30 minutes without hiring him. Be Well Neal-Gary

Personal injury Attorney | Sep 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have known Neal in a professional capacity for my entire legal career. We have worked together on countless cases. I would handle the workers compensation or social security aspect and Neal would handle the personal injury aspect of the case. This is far more difficult than it may seem. Often times our respective positions could be at opposites. However, Neal's integrity is truly beyond compare. When we work together on a case there is only one thing that matters at all - the best benefit of the client. No matter the situation, that integrity is what stands out and allows me and Neal to work together to reach the BEST result for our mutual client. It is not about whose case is better or who gets a larger fee, it is about doing what is right for the only person that really counts under the circumstances, the client. For that reason alone I highly and professionally recommend Neal A. Goldstein"
