I retained Attorney Goldstein this past year to represent me in a Custody action. This was out of county, therefore, I knew it would be costly. I made the appointment with her assistant, whom got me a weekend appointment, explained the flat rate system and payment plan, then proceeded to email me a custody questionnaire. Her assistant also explained how this is highly emotional, and their understanding of giving me the information so I could come to my own choice. I went into the meeting with a heavy heart thinking I would not be able to make the decisions necessary. Attorney Goldstein made me feel as ease, stating these are your options. She did not promise anything, but instead said this is what we can do to move forward. Needless to say, I have primary of my child. Attorney Goldstein made my day by being the sounding board when I asked for her opinion on incidents. She was always responsive and explained this is my life, my choices effect me directly. During this emotional time, Attorney Goldstein was the calming voice of reason to ensure I made decisions based on the facts, pros and cons. To date, I am proud to say you cannot ask for a better attorney, whom is a mother, understands her client highly emotional situations. Thank you Goldstein Law Office, and Michelle E. Goldstein, Esquire. To the individual whom posted the negative reviews, think about this, was it your actions that created the outcome. I specifically think you are solely responsible for your case, but want to blame the attorney. The Attorney Goldstein I saw, well she protected my case and handle my emotional outbursts with nothing but professional, logic based factors that I was so overly emotional to comprehend. That is an attorney that should be revered and awarded. For she has the compassion to aggressively represent her client, but still advocate for the best interest of the child.

She was hired for a child custody case. The one time she showed up to court , she did not say a word, she simply allowed the hearing to take it's course with no defense for my case. Her and her so called assistant, have a habit of not returning calls nor working on cases. She sat on my case with the audacity to assume her needs came before my child. If she does not have the time than do not take money for new cases and have you sign an agreement. She had an excuse for every error , no show and no response. She would not take responsibilities nor be accountable for her lack of counse ans rudenessl. I strongly suggest you seek an attorney elsewhere. She clearly displays her vindictive mannerisms on here. Read her responses to anyone writing their review she sees as a negative . The truth hurts. Unfortunately, she knows nothing about truth only in getting her money. Her attorney skills are unprofessional and she is not active in her cases. Move onto another attorney! Your case is too important to have her waste your time !

I retained Ms. Goldstein's services in a difficult custody case against my children's mother and she proved herself to be an adept and intelligent attorney. She worked with me every step of the way and was tireless in her efforts to help me obtain custody of my children (which I did). I am grateful to have found such an experienced, skillful and compassionate lawyer. It's two years later and my children are now happy and well-adjusted in part due to my decision to hire Michelle for my custody case.

Ohhh where to start with Michelle... let's see I hired her for a child custody case because my sons mother won't let me see him, and after a down payment was paid she then proceeded to tell me I have to pay her another 500 bucks in travel fees. When I questioned it she got real nasty and then ignored me. I'm new to the process so I questioned a 500 dollar travel charge, IM SORRY! The complete disrespect was unbelievable. Shortly after that she just ignored me. Going on 4 months now and haven't heard anything back. Lovely. Thanks! Stay away from this person. She's a horrible person with no desire to help people. Stay far away from this lady she's as cold as they come!

Michelle is an amazing attorney. I love how she keeps in touch with you and informs you on what's going on with your case. Also she is reasonable, and her payment plans are great. I'm glad that I found the best attorney there is. I would recommend her for everybody. I just have to thank her for all that she has done for me this far, without her I wouldn't know where I would be with this.

When I met with her she said with confidence I had a great case, When it went to court, she advised me to go with joint custody before he even finished his time on the stand. She didn't even do a cross examination. I agreed because she scared me into it saying I could lose all custody. Her legal aid contacted me when I missed a payment. It was so unprofessional. She made me feel as though my child custody case was of no importance when it finally came to court. She seemed like she just wanted to get out of there and get it over with.

I had a attnorey who recently retired and she was amazing and it was so hard to find an attnorey like her and an affordable one as well. I just wentered back to court almost 2 years ago and spent some much in court not one but twice. At the time when I spoke with mrs. Goldstein I had an attorney and he promised me everything I wanted. I was just so strain and stress trying to find an attorney that I went by my emotion instead of taking to find one. I spoken with Mrs. Goldstein a couple of times through email and she was always straight up forward with me not promising me anything but let me know that she would it be there to fight. I was just too scared to change because I had a court hearing and i did not know what to do. I knew I had to make a decision quick because my attorney was not going to fight for me. My attorney I had was not doing nothing for me I was the one given him date of my hearing and so on i felt like i had to be on top of him. I went to conciliation meeting I feel like I had no voice whatsoever ma do it was a waste. After speaking with Mrs. Goldstein and her assistant they were just so loving and caring and really had the heart of gold and they were passionate to help me and others. She put me on a payment plan that was very affordable and showed me by her action she is not in this for the money but to make a difference and to help. I'm glad I made the choice to hire Mrs.Goldstein. if you haven't read her assistance story please r ew ad it back from 2011 the 1st review and on how much is Goldstein fault for her was and was on her side was a true inspiration. Anyone that goes through a custody battle knows that it's the most hardest and difficult thing anyone can go through and I would definitely recommend this is Mrs. Goldstein to anyone not only is she a great an attorney but she has a great assistant who goes above and beyond to make sure that someone is fighting for them and that you have a voice..
Thank you ladies!
