Why Goldstein Mehta LLC?


Our top-rated criminal defense attorneys have only one focus: we strive to provide only the best possible representation in criminal defense cases. To us, that means two things. 

First, it means that we take our obligations to our clients seriously. We return phone calls and text messages, keep our clients informed, and visit our incarcerated clients in jail on a regular basis so that they know what is going on and can be thoroughly prepared for each hearing. Our lawyers believe each client needs to see his or her discovery and have the opportunity to review the legal filings in each case. 

Second, we take proactive steps to achieve the best possible outcome. We will investigate your case, attempt to locate exculpatory evidence and witnesses, strategically litigate pre-trial motions, stay on top of recent developments in the law, and always fight hard to get the best results. We prepare as if each case will go to trial because they often do. We do not recommend a guilty plea just to save time or money; we recommend a plea only when it is the best possible result for the client.  

Most importantly, we are not afraid to take a criminal case to trial in front of a judge or jury because we know the criminal justice system and how to get results. We have the experience from defending thousands of clients against criminal charges ranging from misdemeanors like Driving Under the Influence ("DUI"), Knowing and Intentional Possession of a controlled substance, and Simple Assault, to serious felonies such as Robbery, Burglary, gun charges, drug crimes like Possession with the Intent to Deliver ("PWID"), sex offenses, and Homicide. We know that each criminal defense matter is different, and we will work closely with you to determine the best options for you. 

Depending on your case, that could mean the outright dismissal of charges before trial, entry into a diversionary program, a successful motion to suppress, acquittal at trial, or a reduced sentence.
