    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.

    Michelle Ericka Goldstein’s response: “I believe this reviewer should post a link to her public record docket, which is available and simple to do, so the public may see exactly what happened in this case. I believe an informed person would think I did an excellent job in this matter. :)”
  • She is the best!!!!!!!!!

    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!

    I cannot express how greatful I am for meeting Michelle. I contacted her after I received a letter that I needed to attend a criminal history hearing as part of my custody complaint. I was concerned that my past would come back to haunt me as I fight for custody of my daughter. I'm not much of a talker and I needed someone to be my voice. Michelle was so wonderful and answered all questions and concerns i had about my case. My wife and I walked out of her office with a weight off our shoulders and an attorney by my side not only for the criminal history hearing, but for the entire custody case. I'm so blessed to have Michelle by my side as I go through this journey. I look forward in working with her.

  • Receiving Of Attorney Goldstein

    My title is different, I was the opposing party against Attorney Goldstein. I felt she represented the Mother in such a way that I should have hired her. We went through a bitter divorce and we both were trying to use the children against the other.. Attorney Goldstein talked with my attorney over a weekend correspondence and they both sat us down and had a very firm talk. Looking back on it now Attorney Goldstein did most of the talking. She was not like most attorneys and talking to us in a demeaning way. She outlined this situation and brought to our attention the children were the ones suffering because of our stupidity. My attorney did not say a word, when I inquired after the meeting why they sat there with their mouth shut, she states because I feel this was a waste of time going through a conference and then trying to work something out. I stated Attorney Goldstein brought up what matters most is the children and their well being. Not only did she suggest ways for us to coparent even went further to give the mother idea of family therapy. 3 years have now past and I have to say thank you for going above and beyond stating to us how we were acting, my children have 2 parents that are coparenting in a healthy way because of the points you brought to our attention that day.

    When I went to see Michelle with a desperate need of protection from abuse, she was not feeling well and still did everything she could to make sure I was protected. She knew I was scared in the court, but insured me that I was going to be alright. In the court room, Michelle was no-nonsense. She was professional, firm, prepared and ready for a fight. I couldn't have picked a better lawyer.

    I came to Attorney Goldstein not know anything about how to file for custody. My husband left my children and I broke with no income to support ourselves. Attorney Goldstein stated we will help. She is also mentoring her assistant. I broke down into tears and Attorney Goldstein stated this is what we are going to do. My ex husband 3 years later thanked me for everything. He stated at the time of the divorce custody and domestic relations matter Attorney Goldstein was aggressive in court and so respected that he referred his wife to her. We all get along for the children's sake, I was learned from a lot from my experience with Attorney Goldstein. She was the empowerment and example that women should follow. My ex husband to apologize to me after 3 years was do to how strong I became from the example Attorney Goldstein sets. There are some attorneys that treat you as if you are beneath them. Attorney Goldstein empowers her clients to bbbe better and learn from her. She includes them in every decision. For those who feel Attorney Goldstein did not do right by them or their situation, well I must say you did not listen. She only has the best interests of the children first and her clients. This is a Attorney of substance and should really be a public speaker for educating and empowering people on what exactly this court system can do and the consequences of the outcomes. I have read the negative reviews left on here. I do not feel they were clients who took and learned what I have and so many others on the passion Attorney Goldstein has for her profession. Thank you Attorney Goldstein for showing me the benefits of being an empowered woman. In addition empowering and showing a father the empowerment he needed at the time to be a supportive co parent.

    I came to Attorney Goldstein trying to find a direction in how to proceed with my custody case. I had already been through 2 attorneys who did not accomplish what was in the best interests of my children. I found not only an honestly regarding Attorney Goldstein but also a alternative outlook on the case. She broached my case with a empathy and compassion for my children and helped to point out facts I was only looking at from my point of view. She went into the courtroom and stated to me I want you to know I will not predict an outcome I will do everything I can to make an outcome that is best for your children and your situation. I was prepared for the worst and Attorney Goldstein was honest about the outcome and negotiated everything so that not only did it help my communication with the other parent but mostly the outcome became a benefit for my children. I am proud to state that because of this attorney she makes a total difference in the legal profession. If more attorneys had have of the empathy and compassion that Attorney Goldstein does there would a lot more children who would have parents that get along and have better communication. She makes a difference. If you are reading this I hope you will seek out Attorney Goldstein and you will understand in the legal profession blessings do exist for she was ours and I owe her that compliment.
