False Domestic Violence Allegations / No Contact Order
Mr. Goldstien was polite, kind and helped me through this difficult situation. I believe there are no harder allegations to fight than false allegations especially when they come from your wife of 32 years and your 31 year old “child”. Ari was a great lawyer and defended me well enabling to retain access to weapons and the ability to keep my job. He’s a GREAT lawyer! I would recommend him to anyone who needs help when your falsely accused. I can only imagine even if your "guilty" he will do his best to protect your rights as an American. Very highly recommended.

Smart, logical, flexible payment
I hired Ari for a criminal defense case. He immediately recognized the best solution for me, and even did all the talking for me. He is extremely flexible with my payment plan as well. All around upstanding person, would highly recommend.

Didn't get everything I wanted but...
Ari went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly. Even after a year he was still pushing to make sure I got a Square Deal. So far 6 months after court was done.

This guy comes over and talks a ball the options of strategy form the case. When one ave gets shut down he tries something else. He got it to where my case was completely dismissed. Not saying your situation is the same but just kno2 4nhi÷;&;
