Review of Karen L. GoldsteinKaren Made A Huge Difference In My Caseby J.D.Having gotten my third DUI last labor day weekend, I was quite sure that life as I knew it was about to change drastically. I was extremely worried about facing these charges and the consequences to follow. I was informed by a friend about Bill Handles website.. .”Handle on the Law”. This is where I found Karen Goldstein. In retrospect, I can truly say that I am very grateful to have had her represent me in court. My first consultation with Karen had set her apart from my experiences with my prior attorneys. She asked, what seemed to me, all of the right questions. She immediately took a genuine concern in my case and began to give me direction. She was efficient, determined and willing to go to work. She put together statements, depositions, and options for the district attorney regarding my case. Communicating with the DA, she made arrangements with him before we went to court on a very agreeable deal. We went to court and secured that deal as my sentence. No surprises, no problems, and no wasted time. Because of her efforts, I was able to keep my job and serve my jail time on weekends in a local city jail. I was also sentenced to wearing a “SCRAM” bracelet for ninety days in place of doing yet more time locked up. I am certain that Karen made the difference for me between losing a great deal of my life and livelihood…. and obtaining a livable, doable court sentence. I have completed the jail and scram time now and am participating in the DMV program at this time. It comes down to this: A very sincere thank you goes out to Karen Goldstein and her team. I would strongly recommend her to everyone in need of legal councel. She worked very hard on my case and still continues to follow up and monitor my conditions with updates and emails.
Review of Karen L. GoldsteinLuck Was On My Sideby JoeLuck was on my side the day I called Ms. Goldstein for representation in a serious criminal matter.
Having never been in legal trouble before, I was at a complete loss as to how I would even choose a lawyer. I began searching for criminal defense lawyers on the internet and one of the first names I happened upon was hers. Her website said she was "Principled and Compassionate" and after my first conversation with her I knew it was true.
Lets start with compassionate. The period between securing her representation and my actual appearances in court was one of the most trying times in my life. I was a nervous wreck. Anxiety was always present...but so was Karen. Although I knew she had many clients I felt like I was the only one. No call went unanswered. No email neglected. She was ALWAYS there for me to answer every question and concern no matter how trivial. She even took the time to consult with my parents rearding their concerns. While I expected great service I had not expected this and without it I dont know how I would have gotten through it.
Now to principled. Karen seems to truly believe in the principle that every defendant deserves the best representation possible. Based on the charges against me I was worried about whether I would get anyones "A" game. Karen alleviated those concerns and showed me that she only brings her "A" game. I never had a doubt she would do her best to get me the most favorable outcome possible.
And now to the results. From the beginning I was unwilling to go to trial so the goal was to ge the best deal possible. The one result I would not accept was to serve time in prison. And thanks to Karen I didn't serve a day. The prosecution was asking for 180 days and she worked with the court to secure a deal for probation. She fought for and got me the best outcome possible.
So if you are in a legal jam and are looking for oustanding representation from a compassionate, friendly, and responsive attorney, look no further.
Review of Karen L. GoldsteinKaren worked wonders for meby Patrick B.After being given a citation for a DUI, I had no idea what to do. I have never been a situation such as this and I was becoming extremely worried about what was going to happen to me in the future. I found Karen on Bill Handles website "Handle on the Law" and she took the bull by the horns. My first consultation with her she showed great knowledge in my situation and she were able to relieve my anxiety in that I knew I were in the best of hands. Karen attended my first court appearance for me so I did not have to loose a day of work. She compiled all the information and she was extremely well prepared for the second court appearance. At the second court date she met with the district attorney and she had been able to obtain a very good deal for me. She were able to have the DUI reduced to a Wet Reckless driving. Jail time was time served, I had to attend 6 AA meetings, 3 months of Driver Safety Awareness Program, no interlock device on the car, no community service and only 2 years probation. Karen was nothing short than awesome and I cannot say enough about how knowledgeable, professional, kind and compassionate she is. I cannot recommend her more for anyone that would be put in a situation such as this. As they say "She is the bomb". Thank you Karen, Patrick B.
