Mr. Goldstein recently chatted with us, and shared what he believes to be some of the most rewarding aspects of his work.



What can you say to people who are getting divorced and might be feeling fearful and overwhelmed?

You are not alone. You have support. It will be okay. I want to unburden you of the stress this time will impose on you by taking on the challenges, leading you through the process, educating you on the issues, and fighting for you until the end.

How does your practice help clients deal with the challenges that come with the dissolution of a marriage?

Collaboration. I work collaboratively with my clients. We are a team. The closer we work together, the more united we are in understanding our positions and goals, which allows us to achieve those goals and navigate any scenario or challenge that comes our way. Maintaining calmness, logic, and rational thinking are also critical. Without it, emotion and reaction take over which will distract from the issues at hand. While emotion is usually an element, being able to manage those emotions and work with my clients is of utmost importance in order to focus on the ultimate objective.

The National Academy of Family Law Attorneys recently recognized you within their prestigious Top 10 Under 40 ranking, how does your work ethic reflect the values your clients expect from your practice?

I have always had a strong work ethic. Not just in completing my tasks as they need to be done, but going above and beyond the call of duty. When engaging in litigation, having all of the best evidence to support my client's arguments is vital. My clients and I do our due diligence before setting forth our position and our argument, in order to have the absolutely strongest possible stance without the ability for the opposing counsel to challenge. Being prepared is always important, but exercising due diligence in order to back up and support everything we are fighting for, puts the client in a better position to achieve their goals.

What makes Bryan Goldstein different from other divorce lawyers?

I have your back 100%. I will fight for you and be there for you every step of the way. No matter what the scenario, I am there for my clients through the entire litigation process. I am always available for my clients, and unwaveringly tenacious, empathetic, and supportive.

Can you share with our readers some of the most rewarding aspects of your profession?

I often see a drastic change in my clients. When we first meet, they are typically scared, nervous, wracked with fear and uncertainty. The transition from these emotions to relief, freedom, optimism about the next chapter in their life - whether it be one month later, one year later, or three years later - is incredibly rewarding to witness and to be a part of. In the beginning, when I tell clients they will eventually feel this way at the end, it's hard for them to imagine. When they later recall that initial conversation, they thank me for always having their back and getting them to where they need to be.
