Upon deciding to get a divorce I hired Mark and his legal team to handle my case. Filling for a divorce was an extremely difficult decision for me. Mark understood my situation and advised me from both a professional and a personal perspective. Mark met with me on two separate occasions in his office to inform me of the divorce process in general and what to expect in particular concerning my case. During our meeting Mark was extremely patient, knowledgeable and empathetic to my situation. After speaking with Mark, I felt confident he was the right lawyer for the job. Although the emotional and personal challenges of a divorce can be enormous, Mark and his team made the legal process painless. Aside from filling out the necessary forms, Mark and his team handled the entire divorce process from start to finish. This was a huge benefit because it allowed me to ‘get on with my life’ and put the situation behind me earlier rather than later. Additionally, when I called or emailed, I always received a response the same day. The customer service provided by Mark and his team is nothing short of impressive. The ability to speak with Mark in a timely fashion helped to alleviate my concerns and stress during the process. Finally, Mark and his legal team were able to finalize my divorce prior to the next calendar year. Wow, what a relief ! In short, I am extremely happy with the outcome of my case! Mark and his legal team are amazing! I highly recommend Mark because he is ethical, extremely knowledgeable and the customer service provided by his office is first class. Thank you to Mark and his team for their outstanding service!

From the first phone call to Mark to the last email with Francine: there was nothing but steadfast focus on getting my daughter back to me. They fought for me like it was their own daughter. In less than a week the whole mess was settled and we were reunited. They guided me every step of the way. They were in contact several times a day. They respond to emails and calls within minutes. This firm is the only place you need for custody, divorce and other matters!

Thankfully, I very rarely need an attorney, but when I do, I always call Mark Goldstein. He has written (and re-written) our wills and closed multiple real estate deals, saving the day more than once by calmly handling issues that came out of nowhere. Communication with his team is outstanding. If I could give a higher rating than 5 stars, I would.
- Dan

Mark and his whole group (Justin, Kathy, and Esther) have been absolutely amazing. My husband and I were on a time crunch for estate documents. Not only did Mark charge me such a fair price, but his whole team is so responsive and helpful any time I call or email them. They did everything they could to get me the documents I needed in a timely manner. They're very patient and supportive and just care about their clients' happiness. They are going to be our go to lawyers from now on.

I hired the Goldstein Law Group to help with a family court case. I had never been through the legal system and was handed a 100+ page lawsuit. They guided me through all of my possible options and were great teachers as well as lawyers. Specifically, I'd like to thank Lisa and Viki for their prompt responses and expertise. Lisa was able to defend me from a frivilous accusation with her thorough, professional demeanor, and unceasing confidence in our case. They do truly great work and I would hire them again in the future.

I had a wonderful experience using Francine Galante and her team at Goldstein group for assistance with traffic charges. I was able to get the lowest fee charge and the most serious offenses dropped without suspension o any points. Highly recommend!
- Neehar

I have to say Mr. Goldstein was so professional and yet he treated me like a friend when I was very nerves in the courtroom. He made sure I got exactly what my son and i needed and more. In the pleadings, he demanded some things i didn't even know I could ask for. He represented me with so confidence because of his experience. I'm so thankful to him and his staff who are just as nice especially his paralegal, Viki who helped make this transition smooth and was always pleasant. Don't hesitate to hire Mr. Goldstein if you need your matter resolved quickly and in a professional satisfactory manner. I wouldn't think twice to recommend him!
- Nan

We planned a trip and then got worried that we didn’t have our wills done. I selected Mr. Goldstein based on the steellar reviews I found online. I reached out on Friday before labor day in the afternoon and, to my surprise, he answered early on Saturday morning. Within a week we had the documents signed and now I’m writing my review in the airport - as a big thank you for the fact that he treated us as a priority, for his professionalism and bright presence.
- Mirela

If anyone is in need of a family court lawyer you could not go wrong using Hillary and hear assistant Toni. Our case had more twist and turns then you would believe. After a year of trying on our own we hire Hillary and he team and in after navigating the court system we received the decision that we desired. Toni was always there to take us down or answer questions . Hillary who seems seems calm and easy going was a tiger in the court room . she was able to expose all the lies from the other side and allow the judge to rule on the case based on the current facts. You cant go wrong with this team as long as you are up front and truthful with them. We will always be grateful to them for helping to put our lives back together.
- Albert H.

I was referred to Mr. Goldstein by a friend. I needed guidance as to how to handle eldercare issues for my father. Mr. Goldstein was very understanding of the issues involved and was able to provide help with my issues. He is extremely knowledgeable and looks for solutions based on what your needs are. Since then, I have consulted with Mr. Goldstein on other personal matters and again, his knowledge and willingness to explain in detail have provided me with the information I needed for my issues. I would recommend him highly and without reservation.
- Stan

The whole staff at Goldstein Law Group is amazing and caring. Mark Goldstein especially is an amazing attorney. If I did not have him, I am not sure if I would have had the outcome I had. He fought hard for me like he was family and was patient and help my hand through the whole process. I would HIGHLY recommend Mark Goldstein for your attorney if you want a GREAT outcome!!!
- Ana

I had child custody issues with my ex wife that span more than a decade. The Goldstein Law Firm took care of my needs. Hillary Brower was my attorney from the firm. She was EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE about custody laws and how the courts deal with the types of issues I was having. This led to an excellent outcome for me and my child. We are very thankful for what the Goldstein Law Firm and Hillary Brower was able to achieve in the courts for us.
- Seth

The Goldstein Law Group is a first class law firm. From the moment we started working with them until our case was settled they were extremely communicative throughout the entire process. They thoroughly explain each step and are extremely professional. I would highly consider using them to help with any matter that pertains to their expertise. I am not a person who writes reviews but when you feel like you were taken care of like family you do what is right. Goldstein law Group is a team of professionals. I cannot thank Mark, Jamie, Lori, Kathy and Viki enough for all they have done for my family.
- Justin

I"m very happy to say Goldstein Law Group was the best decision that I ever made, MR Mark Goldstein has done for me in one day what my previous attorney couldn't do in four months and 9000.00 dollars later. I'm am so grateful for finding you guys. you guys are the best and I recommend you to anyone that really need a great attorney and help. Thank you again Goldstein Law Group
- Anthony

I contacted Mark to discuss my situation with him at a time my marriage was going through an incredibly rough patch. I went over my thoughts, questions, and concerns with him, and he listened and gave me fantastic feedback as a professional, as well as a spouse and parent. I can't express how much I appreciated him treating me with respect and compassion without passing any judgment. He didn't push me into any decisions or situations that I did not personally want and made it clear he wants for me what I want for me. At the same time, it's also very clear that he is quite savvy and is knowledgeable and can do a great job for his clients. He would definitely be my go-to person on these kinds of matters.

The best decision we made was to retain this Law firm. They are about as sharp as you can get. Mark ,Francine and her assistant Kacie have been amazing. They listen ,they advise, and you get the results you’re looking for. Not to mention they are all wonderful people.
- Ginna

When you need a warrior to fight for your rights in family court, I highly recommend Mark Goldstein and his legal team. Two thumbs up! Thx Goldstein Law Group!
- Mike

Mark and Francine are amazing! They treated myself like I was part of the family. I have used them twice once for custody of my daughter and the other for a support order. Each appearance was flawless and as painless as possible. Court is never fun especially family court but if you need a great attorney that will treat you like they actually care, please trust me and use Goldstein law.
- Aaron

Let's get straight to the point. My experiences with attorneys has been horrid at best. I've procured several attorneys in the past for various matters and the results were sub-par. They not only failed to preform their obligations as my attorney, but one even swindled the monies given to them in advance on good faith. Upon retaining Mr. Golstein, I explained my prior dealings with lawyers and he assured me that my experience with his law firm would not be the same. His law firm not only represented me in the utmost professional matter, but they were fair and accessible to me as needed. Francine J. Galante, prepared my case brilliantly and Mr. Golstein represented me himself in the court. A special thanks to Kacie Clarke for all of her assistance and preparation. Everything was as discussed in consultation. I would recommend this firm to my family, friends and whoever has a legal matter pending. Finally, an attorney/firm with integrity!!
- Edward

I didn't hire a lawyer yet because the case hasn't ended ,but I got a call from Mr Marc Goldstein very quick n told me he can help me .Very impressed with how fast he return my call.
- Daisy

My attorney's Mark and Edward provided outstanding legal service while working on my case. They were able to dive into my case and use their legal expertise, that allowed me to receive a wonderful outcome. They were very responsive and energetic concerning all of my legal matters. The entire office provided upscale assistants within a timely manor. The team was also very engaging. Every issue was escalated and quickly resolved by their strong ability of understanding how the law governs our society today.

Worked with Mr Goldstein for over a year during my divorce. He was always attentive, available and responsive to my concerns and needs. Divorce is a very rocky road and having the right lawyer is key. Mr Goldstein was able to bring the matter to a close as quickly and effectively as possible. I would highly recommend him and thankful he was on my side of the negotiating table.

I was blindsided by my wife with divorce papers. I thought everything was going well. I was busting my back working 2 full-time jobs to pay the mortgage on a new palatial home she insisted on purchasing, only to find out she was cheating on me. I was so apoplectic I couldn't even think. I started looking for a lawyer on the internet and noticed the Mark Goldstein Law Firm kept coming up with 5 stars on multiple review sites and made an appointment. I was nervous, heart-broken, depressed and had no idea what was going to happen. That all changed the minute I met Mark Goldstein! This guy explained the process, did not make any grandiose promises, and was so down to earth and caring I knew I was in good hands and understood why he had so many 5 star ratings. His calm manner relaxed me and enabled me to give him pertinent information that significantly improved Mark's ability to strategize. MARK IS A GENIUS! Since he specializes in Family Law, he knew all and every new changes that were implemented. My ex-wife's lawyer did not specialize in family law, so Mark literally wiped up the floor with her and got me the deal of a lifetime! I am forever grateful to Mark and also Francine Galante Carlin and the legal secretary who ALWAYS answered my questioned and concerns and NEVER lied to me! I HIGHLY recommend The Goldstein Law Firm!
- Victor P.

Look no further for another law firm, Mark Goldstein and his ENTIRE staff are at your service from the first call! I was highly recommended to the Goldstein Law Firm from a friend after going thru lawyer after lawyer and getting NO results and a lot of headaches. Every single person I spoke with was not only knowledgeable, professional and aware of all and any new changes to family laws, but they were also kind, caring down to earth and devoted. I felt as if I were receiving preferential treatment every time I interacted with this firm. They took my calls EVERY time, never sent a letter to my ex's lawyer without sending it to me first and getting my approval, and THEY NEVER LIED TO ME! I cannot express my gratitude and appreciation enough for the superlative job they did and did it in a timely fashion. Prior to consulting the GOLDSTEIN LAW FIRM I had 3 other lawyers and in 4 years, they couldn't accomplish what Mark did in 4 months!!!!!
- Catherine

It was truly a pleasure to work with Mr. Goldstein and his entire staff. He was extremely professional and followed up in a timely manner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or work with him again in the future.
- Alison

I recently purchased my first home and was referred to Mark by a friend who had a good experience in the past. Being my first home purchase I did not know what to expect when it came to the legal aspect of the transaction. Mark made it so that I was always 100% aware and involved in the legal process. He provided clear and concise explanations of the contract and my legal rights as the buyer of the property. He made sure that he was readily available should I have any questions and made the home purchase as stress free as possible on his end. Mark conducted himself with the upmost professionalism and I will surely hire him again should the need arise. I highly recommend Mark Goldstein to anyone who needs an attorney.
- Matthew

I left my family attorney due to lack of follow-up and poor communication and I definitely made the right choice. Besides the great follow-up, Mr Goldstein and his team have always Beem very sprofessional and knowledgeable. I will highly recommend them to my family and friends when needed.
- Mike

I cannot say enough. Mark turned my case around from the first day I hired him. He's very strategic and he's a 'numbers' man which was exactly what my case needed!
- Tamara

If you are looking for strong representation, especially in high conflict cases, then look no further because you have found the right law group. I had been divorced for several years when I retained Goldstein Law Group to represent me in seeking a modification to my custody and support order. At the time of my divorce, the combination of my emotional state and the weak representation from my former attorney led me to sign what was, for me, an unfair, unbalanced custody and support order that didn’t benefit my children or myself in any way. Although the language of my order left the door open for me to have additional parenting time with my children, it was opposed by my ex-wife at every turn despite my persistent requests. This led me to Mark Goldstein and Francine Galante. Mark listened to my story, reviewed my poorly written property settlement agreement from several years prior and solidly advised me on what I was in for. It was the fight of my life. He was honest with me about the time, energy and money that would be involved. I was given opportunities along the way to settle, which would have cut my legal expenses, but would not have given me the fair agreement I was seeking. I spent 15 long months in litigation with my ex. As expected, she blocked every attempt at negotiation, despite being represented herself by an attorney, despite multiple rounds of mediation, despite telephone conferences with the judge, culminating in several days of testimony at a plenary hearing. Francine and Mark worked diligently on my behalf communicating with the opposing counsel, the mediator and the judge. I am happy to report that I was successful in my quest to obtain 50/50 shared residential custody of my children. My new order is fair, balanced and affords my children the opportunity to share equally in the love and affection of both parents. The resultant financial aspects of the new order were fair and clearly written to avoid future misinterpretations. I cannot be happier with the outcome. I never could have come this far without the strong representation by my attorneys Mark and Francine. They were there for me every step of the way. Was it expensive? Of course it was. Anyone who thinks that aggressive litigation is cheap is sadly mistaken. However, you get what you pay for. I learned that the hard way. I never could have come this far or attained this outcome by myself. Don’t make the same mistake. If you are faced with the need to hire an attorney to represent you in your divorce or custody case, you MUST do it right the first time. My only regret is not hiring Mark and Francine sooner.
- Nathan

Mark and Steve handled my divorce case few months back. Me and my ex had already gone thru a mediation process and Mark took that as the basis of filing the divorce papers and did not unnecessarily complicate matters. Mark's initial advise was sound and Steve was very approachable and responsive. Steve was excellent in the court and made us feel comfortable in his company. I will recommend them as divorce lawyers.
- D.G.

I was represented by Mark Goldstein for a Separation & Child support case in New Jersey. From our first conversation, I got a good vibe from him. He was very responsive to my questions and concerns about what to expect as we go through this difficult process. He Always returned my calls even after office hours. I was always kept informed of all actions and progress through phone calls, e-mails & Text. He was extremely professional and has an enormous amount of knowledge about both of my issues. I am very please that Mr. Goldstein was representing me. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a good attorney.

I am a professional working in healthcare. I called Mark searching for help starting out as a plaintiff in a case. This was my first rodeo being involved in such a matter so I wanted to seek out his advice and expertise. On my way over i had received a message that a cross temporary restraining order was filed against me. I couldn't believe it. Mark helped me calm my nerves a bit. Mark is very down to earth and knowledgable about the law. He is very organized and efficient in his work and he knows the system. Mark and I spoke on numerous occasions and he proved to be smart, honest, professional, motivated and just an overall hard working individual. A gentleman by the name of Steven was also very helpful. He is a lawyer as well. They made me feel comfortable all the way through my case and when I had questions Mark and Steven were there to assist. I couldn't have gone through this case alone and I would recommend Mark to help give direction and guidance throughout the process. I would suggest meeting with Mark for a consultation to get an idea of how dedicated he is to his work and how down to earth people at his firm are. They will work with you. If you have any concerns just ask them and they will address it. I truly appreciate your help guys. Thank goodness it's over but thanks again for the assistance!!

If you are seeking a divorce attorney who is a compassionate human being with praiseworthy perseverance and ambition then Mark Goldstein is the lawyer for you! I retained Mark back in Nov. 2014 after interviewing several other attorneys and I actually retained another attorney who took my money but not my best interest. My soon to be ex-husband emptied our bank accounts and left me virtually penniless after 30 years of marriage. The day after I met Mark, we were in the courtroom obtaining support for me! My divorce is complicated but not for Mark Goldstein. From the sweet receptionist Deana, to the awesome paralegal JoAnn to the (super!) Jr. lawyer Steven, there is an ENTIRE TEAM on your side who actually work for your money, best interest and success of you divorce. There is NO dragging the feet with Mark Goldstein. He is one amazing, seasoned divorce attorney!
- Jo-Anne

I went to Mark because my ex-wife filed a bogus motion for primary. mark went right to work by immediately firing a letter to my ex-wife's attorney (Weinberger law group) and clearly stating their claim had no merit and was totally bogus. then he arranged a 4 way sit-down meeting where he made it clear to my ex-wife that she has absolutely no evidence whatsoever to support any of her claims. then he had my children meet the judge which further supported that my ex-wife was making up every one of her allegations. my ex-wife and her attorney backed down and custody remained exactly the same! great job by Mark and attorney Julie Katz as well.

Mark Goldstein has provided legal assistance for my family for many years. In all that time he has always treated us with the upmost respect and concern. Recently he worked directly with us to update wills. His expertise and knowledge provided the comfort needed to understand and confirm that the wills will follow our wishes. Mark also provided excellent counsel handling multiple divorces in our family. We would recommend Mark and his firm if you are looking for a high level of professionalism and the knowledge that you will be a priority.
- Jeffrey

I had a unique problem that required the expertise of many attorneys, Mark was able to handle every situation for us. It is comforting to have someone you trust in your corner during a very difficult time. His office staff is very nice and helpful as well. Especially Lisa. She was a gem!
- Donna

I met Mark as a new attorney in the late 1980s when he handled a real estate transaction for me and also prepared my will. Unfortunately in the late 1990s I once again needed a lawyer to handle my divorce and I immediately called Mark. Since I was the sole provider for the family Mark explained to me the entire divorce process and approximate final settlement of the divorce. The final financial settlement was within 10 percent of our first meeting. Mark was also able to negotiate part of the settlement which would allow me a normal life upon my daughters becoming emancipated and my retirement. I am grateful to him for that as anyone knows how important closure is in a divorce and one being able to move forward with their life. I have since employed Mark's services for my parents wills and trusts as they are now senior citizens. I consider him the consummate professional.

After this firm successfully defended me in a lawsuit against a very large bank, I thought I would post this review. I have done business with Mark Goldstein his partner Howard Bachman for over 20 years. Mr. Bachman helped me finish my messy divorce after 2 other law firms had failed to do so. Mr. Goldstein had helped me with some estate work and some personal matters prior to successfully defending my company in a long and complex legal case. I sincerely doubt that I could have had a better outcome with any other firm. I will continue to use and recommend the law firm of Goldstein and Bachman.
- Jeffrey M.

I would definitely recommend Mark Goldstein to anyone considering going through the divorce process. I walked into Marks office last August completely devestated and in shock. I was completely blind sided by my husbands decision to file for a divorce. Mark was kind, professional and very informative about the entire process. He managed my expectations from beginning to end. He did not make false promises or exaggerate any outcomes. What he said would happen, did happen. My ex husband brought us into court over and over on frivolous pursuits. We walked out of court EVERY single time with victory! Mark is very articulate. He defends your case with passion and class. No name calling, mudslinging or profanity. He truly cares about his clients. I found him very responsive and he always kept me informed. I also can not say enough about his assistant Lisa. She was fantastic in every way! As I sit here today, I am so very grateful for all of his help. Because of him, I can now see a brighter, happier tomorrow!
- Bridgette

Ms. Brower's name was given to me by a family friend who described her as a professional, honest and trustworthy lawyer. Divorce is a very emotional and draining process to go through especially when there is child custody involved. Her expertise combined with warmth made what was the most difficult time in my life conclude most satisfactorily! Ms. Brower was brilliant in her representation of me. She is very intelligent and was forceful when the situation called for it, but is also very thoughtful and compassionate. She helped me to stay focused on the larger picture and she worked on my case in a caring and timely manner. Toni, her legal assistant is also very knowledgeable and considerate. They always return your calls, keep the process running smoothly, and guide you through the inevitable conflicts and hurdle.
Gratitute is what I'm filled with as a result of Ms. Brower handling my divorce.
- Anchal K.

I had custody issues that spanned over a decade. Hillary Brower at the Goldstein Law Firm was able to get me the best outcome possible. Hillary Brower is extremely knowledgeable is both custody law and how the courts deal with the types of issues I was having. This resulted in the best outcome my child and I could have ever wished for. Thank you Hillary Brower for all the great work you have accomplished for my child and I. We are forever grateful. If you need an attorney for custody issues I highly recommend Hillary Brower at the Goldstein Law Firm.
