For Those in Crisis, a Staunch and Determined Ally
Family strife is never pleasant. When arguments and disputes arise as to whether a marriage should endure, what a child’s future will look like, and how parent-child relationships will evolve, it is almost always emotionally, psychologically, and financially taxing. In some cases, a family in crisis will need to address urgent issues that involve physical safety and security, or require the intervention of law enforcement or other authorities to ensure the well-being of family members.
For individuals facing such complex and challenging family issues, Attorney Barrie L. Goldstein provides compassionate counsel, sound guidance, and effective advocacy that can bring clarity, security, and peace of mind in even the most volatile situations.
In addition to the legal acumen that has earned her the respect of her colleagues and those on the bench, Ms. Goldstein possesses a passion for justice and a deeply-felt commitment to protecting those who need the law to work in their favor. This potent combination means that those who seek her assistance in navigating their family conflicts will find no greater ally.
When Concerns About Health, Safety, and Well-Being Are Paramount
Attorney Goldstein works with clients on a range of contested and complex family law and divorce matters, focusing on those issues that directly impact the health, safety, and well-being of those caught in the tempest of a family in crisis. These include:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child abduction
- Domestic abuse
- Orders of protection or removal
- Modification and contempt actions
A History of Fighting For Children and Protecting Those in Danger
For close to five years, Ms. Goldstein served as a Director of the Special Litigation Unit of the Juvenile Rights Division of the Legal Aid Society. She acted as lead counsel in a landmark decision involving the constitutionality of removing children from their mothers when the mothers themselves were victims of domestic violence. The matter was litigated in the federal trial and appellate courts and, ultimately, in the New York State Court of Appeals.
In her private practice, Ms. Goldstein is equally tireless in her efforts to ensure that her clients receive the full protection of the law; that they can move forward with their lives with confidence and without fear for themselves or for their children.
