Attorney Steven Goldman
Steven Goldman graduated from Michigan State University in 1982 with a
BA in political philosophy, and in 1985 from Rutgers Law School with a
Juris Doctor Degree.
He worked at the Defender Association of Philadelphia from 1985 –
1987, where he represented indigent criminal defendants in arraignments
and bench warrant hearings. The thousands of arraignments he did during
this time helped him develop a skill for bail arguments that serves his
clients well to the present day.
From 1988 – 1997 he worked as a Staff Attorney at the Brooklyn office
of the Legal Aid Society of New York. During his tenure at Legal Aid he
represented thousands of people charged with everything from jumping a
turnstile to murder and everything in between. His practice included arraignments,
plea bargaining, suppression hearings, mental fitness hearings, trials
– literally every aspect of criminal defense. He also trained new
lawyers and law students in trial practice. It was during his time at
Legal Aid that Mr. Goldman became a highly effective criminal defense attorney.
From 1997 – 2000 Mr. Goldman worked at the Bronx Defenders. In a
little over two years he conducted thirteen serious felony trials to verdict.
Of those thirteen trials, eleven resulted in acquittals. He also engaged
in extensive grand jury practice, negotiated numerous pleas, conducted
suppression hearings and taught trial practice to less experienced attorneys.
It was during his time at Bronx Defenders that he mastered the art of
trying a case.
Between 2000 and the present, Mr. Goldman diversified his legal practice
to include the defense of federal criminal cases, the prosecution of federal
and state civil cases for false arrest and excessive force by the police
and corrections officers, and the representation of victims of professional
misconduct by doctors. So whether you are accused of a crime, or are the
victim of false arrest, police brutality or misconduct by a medical professional,
you can be confident that the Law office of Steven Goldman will provide
you with a level of legal representation that is second to none.
