Founding Partner

Brian Goldstein

Overview And Experience

Decades of Experience

Mr. Goldstein has represented injury victims, both as a physician and surgeon and as an attorney for over thirty-five years. During that time, he has taken the fight against negligent corporations, insurance companies, physicians, medical institutions, and individuals on behalf of his wrongfully injured clients.

 He also has decades of experience assisting physicians when lawsuits are brought against them, undertaking issues such as licensure or credentialing. Having a background serving clients on both sides of the aisle, he has a unique understanding of what specifically does, and does not, qualify as medical malpractice. He tirelessly assesses, reviews, and prepares each case in an effort to attain the best outcome possible on behalf of his clients, time and time again. 

Over the last five years, you have fought tooth and nail on our behalf. You have put so much time and effort into our case. I never doubted you or that I made the right decision in having you represent us.
