"I've been in human services and health care taking care of others since I was 20. When I worked as a case manager at Dutchess Outreach for all those years, I helped people go to rehab, fed them, kept their lights on their roofs over their heads with advocacy. As a nurse, I've taught patients, revived patients who were in cardiac arrest, was an advocate and a shoulder to lean on in times of crisis. I then moved on to management where I continue to advocate, develop better programming and continue to build relationships with patients and their families, as well as with my nursing staff. The point is, as a caregiver I have heard "thank you" many times. I have heard "you are my hero and I couldn't have done it without you". As a lawyer, you may not have heard that as much, as your profession isn't deemed a healing profession, but for me it was. I got justice for my mother with your help. I was a baby when I first set foot in your office with my mom trying to buy a house. Who knew you would have been a huge part of my life just a few years later, when I dealt with the worst tragedy of my life at the age of 23. You put up with my million and one questions, all the times I was nosing around on court calendars and finding stuff out before your office was even notified. The best was insisting on sitting on all the depositions for each doctor, even though you said that typically people do not do that! I was in an abusive, toxic unhealthy relationship with children and had no family because my parents were deceased and my brothers were so far away and didn't speak to me for years after the lawsuit. I fought through it all and became a successful individual who is happier than ever. There are many people who played a role in that process and you were one of them. Thank you, thank you for all you have done for me, from my mom's malpractice case and the purchase of my home to the car accident case I had. You were like a father figure, and I really appreciate all the kindness you and Maryann showed me all those years! I just thought you should know you and your super staff help change lives."

Here's some fan mails that speak to the fact that we offer more heart, more service, and better results!
There are not enough kind words to say about Lindsey. Always a listening ear. She was never bothered when I would call for updates and she reached out to me anytime there were any changes or new info to be given about my case. I sincerely believe she was genuine in making sure I was taken care of. I never felt like 'just a number'. I would recommend her to anyone needing representation.
Having dealt with a heart-wrenching loss in my life which required legal action, I feel so fortunate to have worked with Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP. The journey could have been so lonely, but in them I found true friends. Everyone on their team knows their jobs inside and out and are excellent at what they do, but what's even better is that they carry out their work with total empathy. Every person at the firm is always sensitive, caring, and understanding. They communicated regularly and beautifully, and always ensured that I never felt alone and that I had the chance to think through every step along the way. By doing such a complete and wonderful job, a culminating experience, I felt like I could finally move forward and put things to rest. They are experts at what they do, but more importantly, they are special people. They gave me that nice, comforting feeling that they had their arms around me when I was in so much pain. I will be forever grateful that they came into my life.
With all sincerity, I can say that in my sixty years, I have never met a lawyer I admire and trust more than Paul Goldstein. When I was growing up, my mom and dad referred to their attorney as the "family lawyer." As a kid, that didn't mean much to me - but now that I have discovered Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, I can fully understand and appreciate what my parents meant by that. Having a relationship with someone you can count on throughout life - for both expected and unexpected issues - is so important. With Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, I have bright, caring people I can turn to anytime I need counsel. Paul is empathetic, always responsive to my questions, and extremely supportive. I am so proud to call him my "family lawyer."
When my 78-year-old mother had a bad fall, I took the outstanding advice given to me by a friend to contact Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP in Poughkeepsie. Was I lucky to discover them! Not only are they terrific lawyers, absolutely excellent at what they do, but Paul was so patient and compassionate toward my mother, which was exactly what she needed (and what I needed too as I helped her work through an extremely difficult time). Paul and his team really listen; they learned everything they could about us so that they could work successfully for us. He made us feel so comfortable immediately with his wonderful sense of humor and warmth. You can trust them completely with your case - they are SO smart, and in a worldly way; they really understand people and how to best represent them. Paul got us great results, which helped us so much financially - and beyond that, he built a real bond with us based on mutual respect. I would go back to Paul, Lindsey, and their team if I ever needed anything at all, and would highly recommend them to anyone who thinks they have a case on their hands. They are the best in the business!
Paul Goldstein and his entire staff at Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP treated us like we were their own family during a really tough time in our lives. We came to Paul with a nursing home case; the nursing home had seriously neglected my mother, which led to terrible pain and suffering for her, and ultimately caused her death. Paul and his team worked to investigate every angle of the case, always showing incredible compassion, concern, and drive. We were very pleased with the outcome, and, more importantly, feel that Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP made a big statement about the very serious responsibility nursing homes have in caring for loved ones. They were professional, caring and courageous throughout, and we are so grateful to them for all that they did for my family.-Karen Durant, Ulster County.
"Paul Goldstein was very kind and compassionate - so understanding about the difficulties I was going through. He kept me up-to-date regularly on where the case was going and what my options were, and was always optimistic about what I could expect in terms of compensation on behalf of my mother. I am extremely happy with the results, and I very highly recommend his services!"
Lindsey Goldstein is so kind, so knowledgeable, and so efficient! When I got hurt and my daughter and I thought I might have a lawsuit, I found Lindsey and I am extremely pleased that I did. She is so compassionate - always caring and sensitive, and totally on the ball with my case. Her smile and personality were always comforting, and she is such a smart attorney who knows the law inside and out; I knew I could totally trust her to work hard for me, and she did. Lindsey Goldstein got me a very, very good settlement, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. She is just wonderful. I am so grateful to her for everything she did for me!
Simply put, they are just wonderful counsel. Long before I retained Lindsey for my personal matter, for approximately 9 years in fact, I worked with Lindsey and Paul Goldstein, as well as a vast number of other attorneys throughout the Hudson Valley. The position I held required me to work with hundreds of individuals who were clients of many attorneys, where I would have to negotiate with all of these attorneys regarding business matters of their clients. Over those 9 years, negotiating with over 100 different attorneys from New York City to Albany, I found with utmost absolution that the father-daughter team Lindsey and Paul Goldstein, of Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., were truly the best of the best. For this very reason, out of all the attorneys with whom I had built a rapport, I selected Lindsey Goldstein when it came to needing an attorney for my own personal matter. I turned my issue over to Lindsey, as I knew I could trust her implicitly to bring her breadth and depth of experience and expertise to my case. She was fabulous. Lindsey worked on weekends, on her own time, to communicate with me - she was on top of every detail, ultimately earning me a very fair settlement in a very reasonable timeframe. I believe in her 110%. In fact, when clients and friends have shared their own personal stories that seem to call for legal counsel, I immediately say, with total confidence, 'Talk to Lindsey Goldstein'. She and Paul are honest, realistic, and just really great at what they do. They truly are the best legal representation that you can find in the entire New York upstate and downstate area.
"I have never met such remarkable lawyers. Paul and Lindsey Goldstein worked so hard every step of the way on my behalf. They are outstanding at what they do, and they are also just truly wonderful people. Highly intelligent, respectable professionals - tough on the case, but sensitive and warm toward their clients. I am so grateful to them for everything, and I would recommend them to anyone. They are just awesome."
Both Lindsey and Paul Goldstein have been my lawyers for a number of years. I have used them for several different legal matters. They are very knowledgeable and able to explain complex legal terms so that I was able to understand the proceedings. I have been extremely happy with their service and have recommended them to others.
Paul - thanks again for everything and for taking my Mom's case. You are a very competent and compassionate lawyer and person. I lucked out by having you and your firm represent my Mom!
When I was injured at work and needed a great lawyer, I was referred to Lindsey Goldstein, who is not only terrific at what she does, but makes the experience totally personal. She is a smart attorney who took care of my case and got me what I deserved, following through and keeping me informed about what was happening, every step of the way; she wanted to be sure that I felt important, and I knew that she had my best interests at heart. She genuinely cared about me, constantly going above and beyond to make sure that I was getting the support I needed, and I knew I could trust her with anything. I never realized how important that personal relationship with my lawyer would be until I went through the case; Lindsey Goldstein was really there for me, and I trust her and her father Paul completely. Anyone dealing with an injury or lawsuit will be in the best hands with Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP. She knew my case, but she also took the time to get to know me.
It was an absolute pleasure working with both Paul and Lindsey - they're so supportive and gave me great direction. I felt so comfortable with them. They took the time to explain everything I needed to know, they gave me excellent advice, and I was so happy with the outcome. And they're so professional! Overall it was just such a great experience. I will definitely recommend them again and again!
At Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, everyone is so nice and so understanding. Paul Goldstein knew EXACTLY what to do. I went to him with a nursing home lawsuit, and he discovered that I actually had a second case as well. Working with him was so convenient; he knew I was unable to drive due to medical reasons and worked through everything over the phone to make things easy on me. I was so happy with the results and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal services.
