I am a psychotherapist and was arrested for a misdemeanor. I hired Elana to represent me. In addition to my court case, my psychology license was in jeopardy. From the beginning, Elana was friendly, respectful, and professional in all ways. She handled my case from top to bottom. As a result of her efforts, my case was dismissed, and the governing board of my license dropped the case. I highly recommend Elana for any type of criminal defense. You will be glad you did!
Elana Goldstein was hands on the best lawyer I could have chosen to help me. When I first approached her we discussed my options and decided to settle for one and she followed through with what we decided. Zero complications with communication and super easy to reach. She even checked up on myself and my family before and after, in and out of court dates. Words can’t explain how great a job and person Elana is.
Ms. Goldstein is second to none. Ms. Goldstein took my case to the California Court of Appeal, and didn't just get me a new trial. Her expertise and diligence was the reason why the appellate court actually reversed my conviction, and the trial court was remanded with instruction to DISMISS my case.
I was present during the oral argument phase of my appeal. Ms. Goldstein TOOK NO PRISONERS. Ms. Goldstein knew my case inside and out, and quite frankly, made the attorney representing the State look like a rookie.
I would refer any client, either for a criminal case, or an appeal with full confidence that the client would receive the best counsel, with confidence to win your case.
THANK YOU Ms. Goldstein, YOU ARE THE BEST!
Things happen in life, and when they do you want someone by your side that has the knowledge and experience to handle the situation in the best way possible. Elana is not only professional, but kind and easy to communicate with. She is very thorough, and will make sure you have the best defense possible. Her calm and precise demeanor comes across in the courtroom, and I have nothing but respect for the way she handled my case. I would highly recommend hiring her. If you are in need of a defense attorney, you will not be disappointed.
I have never met a lawyer as detail oriented and organized as Elana Goldstein. Not to mention, Elana is like an encyclopedia of criminal defense information.
On time, excellent with communication, and with a real grasp on our system and how it works, Elana helped me through my cases in a way that made me feel confident time and time again, enough to hire her more than once.
I would definitely recommend the legal services of Elana Goldstein!
Elana is amazing! There are not enough stars to show how much I appreciate what she did, and I highly recommend her to anyone. She came recommended from a large employment law firm that I have worked with for years. I was not disappointed. From the minute we met her, we were impressed. She handled our family situation with a kind but straightforward approach. She was amazing in the courtroom and handled everything professionally from beginning to end. I have referred her to several people with very positive results. Hire her - you will not be disappointed!
I begin by saying that Elana Goldstein is a super star lawyer. Her skill level as a criminal defense attorney is tenacious, strategic, and focused. They say "First Impressions" are important. I felt very confident from day one and had no doubt that I had great legal representation, and truly felt that she was the right person to have my probation terminated early and conviction dismissed. Elana Goldstein came highly recommended by her colleagues. She definitely got the job done and certainly displays no intimidation at all in the court room. I appreciate how she leaves no stone unturned, very resourceful, while exhibiting a high degree of negotiation skills. Thank you Elana for helping me be able to move forward in my career and my way of life. I am forever grateful.
