Jae Woo Kim

Owner, General Tool, Inc.

“I want to thank you again for the dedication and sincerity with which you defended our case. Day after day, I was amazed with the level of in-depth knowledge you commanded of our case and impressed with the strategies you employed in our defense. Our family could not have asked for a better team than you two. I thank God for bringing us to you guys.”

Jeffrey S. Thomas

Principal at Jeffrey S. Thomas, a Professional Corporation

I consider Carol an invaluable colleague. As a litigator, Carol is strategic, thorough, hardworking, and always professional. I have litigated against Carol and with her. Carol’s clients are fortunate to have her as their champion.


Bob Brennan

Owner, Brennan, Wiener & Assoc.

“Gary Goodstein is one of the most competent and professional business litigators in Los Angeles, period, end of story. He has the complete package: ability to get along with judges, ability to communicate to juries, ability to prepare a case completely and with an eye towards winning. You cannot go wrong hiring him.”

Arthur Pfefferman

Real Estate – Senior Managing Director at Coldwell Banker Commercial

I am pleased to recommend Carol, because I have been happy with the result of each assignment. My clients have thanked me for the referral every time.

If you are in need of one of the great lawyers, she should be on everyone's short list to interview for the assignment. She is trustworthy, consistent and reliable.


Rick Mark

President and CEO, VIP Autoworx, Inc.

“Gary is phenomenal...simple as that. It takes talent and care and patience to understand where a legal need comes from, what its goal is, and where it may be headed. Gary does a fantastic job of clearing the air and advising strategically for an outcome everyone can be comfortable with. Gary has performed legal services for several of my clients and a few non-profits and has always exceeded expectations. His level of professionalism is second to none; he is thorough and dedicated; he is the one you want on your side.”


Jeffrey Krivis

Lawyer/Mediator, First Mediation Corporation

“Gary is a master of persuasion in both his written and verbal presentations. As a lawyer, these are pretty darn good traits to have at your fingertips.”

Boris Blum

President / CEO at The Private Clients Group

Carol is an excellent attorney who not only has a wealth of knowledge but also makes sure clients get real value and always looks for ways to resolve issues in the most cost efficient manner!


Dean Frost

Owner, Elizabeth Shutters, Inc.

“Gary combines uncommon good sense with a keen understanding of the law and how it is applied. Gary is the first person I go to for advice, legal counsel and sanity checks on the many regulatory and contractual issues related to running and owning complex businesses.”


Doron Tisser

Estate Planning and Tax Attorney, Tisser & Standing LLP

“Gary is a rare individual who can combine knowledge of the law, compassion for his client and the attitude of pursuing his client's best interest at the same time. If you are seeking to hire a litigator, Gary is your man.”


Rob Rampley

Owner, Media Overkill

“Gary is a great person to know and I am tremendously thankful for Gary's insight, expertise, and attention to detail. Several years ago Gary reviewed (and thoroughly rewrote) a technology contract and licensing agreement for me. His comments on the proposed contract (which were as long as the contract itself) pointed out a huge number of disadvantages that I had completely missed. Gary saw the subtle 'gotchas' from the other attorney and was able to clarify how those clauses could be used against me. Many years later, when the true content of a good (or bad) contract is usually discovered, I was happily thanking (praising) Gary for saving my intellectual property works in those original rewrites. To top it off, he's a really nice guy too. I highly recommend Gary and consider him a true professional.”


Adam D.H. Grant

Shareholder, Alpert, Barr & Grant

“Gary, to put is simply, has been amazing. My extremely high opinion of him is elevated each time we meet and each time I have the opportunity and pleasure to refer matters to him. Without exception, I receive glowing feedback from my clients.”


Ted Huntington

Owner, The Marketing Mogul, Inc.

“Goodstein & Berman's attorneys are knowledgeable on numerous aspects of the law. I have used their services for issues that have included personnel matters and contractual law. They are prompt, thorough and honest.”


Robert Grey

Owner, Greytsounds Sound Development

“I have used Goodstein & Berman's services on several occasions and they have always come through with tremendous results, and if they feel they know a colleague that has better specialized credentials than they do in a particular area they will not hesitate to steer me in that direction, also with the same tremendous results.”


Dirk Julander

Owner, Julander, Brown & Bollard

“I had the opportunity to work with Gary as co-counsel on a very difficult litigation. Gary worked very hard and contributed significantly to the favorable outcome of the case. I am more than happy to recommend Gary as an able and diligent attorney.”


Sean McGee

Senior Attorney, Bridgford & Geason

“I had the pleasure of opposing Gary in litigation a few years ago. I found Gary to be an extremely bright and personable attorney who operated with a high level of integrity. It is not often that I would recommend a lawyer who I have met on the field of battle, but I am happy to recommend Gary.”


Deborah Shames

Owner, Eloqui

“Gary uses his heart as well as his head. He's exceptionally bright, personable and talented as an attorney. I'd want him representing me for a legal battle. What is unique about Gary is his ability to discover the “silver bullet” in your case.”


Mark Swedelson

Goldberg, Swedelson & Associates, Incorporated

“In the more than 20 years I’ve known Gary, he’s always proven to be hard-working, reliable and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needs an aggressive defense lawyer to handle complex commercial, real estate, insurance, or employment litigation.”
