CHESTNUT RIDGE (845) 356-4600
Dear David: I wanted to stop and take a moment to send you a letter of thanks for all your hard work. A.W., J.W., and I owe you a debt of gratitude. This has been a humiliating and traumatic experience for us as a family. The stress has been unbearable for us and frankly, if it were not for your hard work, patience and understanding, I don't think we could have made it. Our family has become closer than ever because of this and for that I am humbly grateful. I know that this experience has made me a better person and sincerely regret the pain that I have caused to my siblings and the good people of Rockland County. Please express my thanks to Donna and all those who have assisted you in my behalf. Thank you again. Best R.W.
We walked a terrible journey you and I. For you, just another tragic case, for me, the hell of my life time. I need to tell you that through it all you were the only consistent ally I had. So I needed to let you know that you never let me down. Your strength, knowledge, and kindness was always there for me. People say negative things about attorneys. I cannot join them after working with you. So I tell them a fine man exists, Mr. David, and I am proud to call him my attorney. Jodi
Dear Attorney Goldstein: I would hereby like to express my deepest appreciation to you on how well you handled my case. Your appearance in court alone speaks volumes. I must say you did an outstanding job. In particular, you did a great job in making sure that I continue to visit and speak to my daughter. For this I and my daughter would like to express our deepest appreciation to you. You were a pleasure working with. A.R.
Dear David, I would like to thank you for representing me last Friday with my DWI case in a somewhat hostile environment. It seemed that the judge was in a bad mood and did not want to hear our arguments. Due to your litigation skills and out of the court room efforts, my expected jail sentence of 6-9 months was reduced to two weekends. I am very grateful to you and your staff and with you a very happy holiday season. H.B.
I as a parent , having David Goldstein representing my child, did an amazing job. He is very knowledgable about the laws and saw a lot of mistakes that the police etc neglected and was very serious about our case which we won and it was totally dismissed after almost a year of back and forth......He is confident and I trusted him with my sons life as I would with mine, if I ever needed a lawyer........He and his staff were always available 24/7......You don't get that with most or any lawyers.....He was TOPNOTCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you David....I would recommend you to the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I needed help with a family member, who was arrested for drug possession. David Goldstein couldn't have been any more understanding and confident that everything would be okay. He was very easy to work with, and he explained everything he was going to do. He was able to get this family member into a program so they wouldn't be convicted of a crime. His office staff was also top notch, very friendly and very efficient. If you need someone to represent you in a criminal matter, you will be very happy with David Goldstein.
I hired Mr. Goldstein as my defense attorney in a case with all odds, and evidence, stacked against me. He was able to navigate the proceedings in a way that allowed me the opportunity for rehabilitation rather than incarceration. Because of his professional approach and determination, I have been able to use these resources to turn my life around and avoid recidivism.
Mr. Goldstein was a life saver in my situation. I made the biggest and stupidest mistake in my life. DWI - how embarrassing and unconsidered of other people on the road. I hired Mr. Goldstein to help me with the situation. I knew that there would be some consequences. He worked with the DA office and save me from jail conviction. Yes I am on probation and had to pay a lot of fines but I learn my lesson and I am very grateful to him for believing in me and for helping me to put my feet on the ground. He has a good heart and and is not judgmental.
Mr. Goldstein did an outstanding job with my case. He’s extremely knowledgeable and put me at ease during a difficult time in my life. I was charged with aggravated DWI, DWI, and other traffic violations. Throughout the whole process he explained everything very clearly and ensured that I understood. He genuinely cares for the well being of his clients. I always felt there was an open line of communication between myself, Mr. Goldstein and his wonderful secretary Donna. I’m extremely grateful for his professionalism, compassion and the outcome of my case. I highly recommend Mr. Goldstein to others in need of a fantastic lawyer.
David Goldstein took what looked like an impossible situation and was able to get a serious felony charge reduced to a simple violation with a small fine and the records sealed. I cannot find enough words to express my gratitude to him for his efforts and success.
I had multiple felony charges from a single case and was facing 5-10 years of prison time. David came in and advised me on the best courses of action, poured through discovery and eventually had my charges dropped and pled me guilty to a program that would allow me to have the charges dismissed at the end of successful completion. Why do I recommend David? He is polite, on time at every appointment or court meeting (was there before me) and uses every single means to secure you the best judgment that you can have. I would recommend him because he gave me a chance to live my life a second time.
David Goldstein has been our family's criminal defense attorney since the late 1990's. He has defended myself and my siblings with several offenses, some with felony convictions, which he was able to reduce their sentences significantly (from 20 years to life to 5 years to life) which we thought would be impossible but David made it possible. Mr. Goldstein also defended my son and instead of having the judge sentence my son to prison, David convinced the judge that my son needed rehabilitation. David was successful in proving this to the judge and it changed my son's life. Because of David's tenacity it is without reservation that I do and will recommend David Goldstein to anyone who is seeking a top class defense attorney.
Hi Kim! We all hope you and your family are doing well. We wanted to let you know we had a wonderful summer with the three grandchildren. We are doing our best to wipe out the last two years they went through in foster care. They have started Pre-K, Head Start, and Kindergarten, and they all seem to love school. We hope you had a wonderful summer also! Take care. P.S. Thank you. the C. Family
Dear Kim; Thank you for helping me get through the most difficult and heartbreaking time in my life. Regards. Evelyn R.
Dear Kim, Our family sends you and your staff hear felt thanks for your services and attention. These last few months for Kevin have been trying times with minimal contact with his daughter. But due to your presence and backing as his attorney in his last court appearance, he felt like he ‘could smile a little.’ We know that the judge is the ruling authority for Kevin’s custody and visitation rights. We are forever in your debt for helping the judge to see his side of the story before making her final decision. Regardless of the outcome, your efforts are priceless to our family. We are forever in your debt. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! God Bless you! Kevin and Family
Wow Kim what an amazing job you did on that motion! Thank you so much!! I read through the entire thing and read through the depositions last night. If I were the Judge I would totally rule in our favor! M.S.
Kim: I wanted to say thank you for everything you've done so far. I woke up today almost as happy as the day Jack was born, knowing I'm finally going to see him again. That wouldn't be happening without your help so thank you both. Matt
Hi Kim. Happy New Year to you! I just wanted to say thank you for doing a great job on my case. Things are peaceful now and C.S. and I are actually getting along really well for the kids. We plan birthday parties together and I go into the house (briefly) to spend time with the kids. Hope things are well with you. Best, A.S.
I have more than benefited from Kim's legal prowess regarding issues of custody, visitation, and child support. Frankly, words cannot possibly express the strength of my recommendation for Kim Rayner. Ms. Rayner is a brilliant courtroom advocate for her clients. Earliest on, and throughout my court experience, Kim listened and empathized as I shared my reasons for seeking sole custody of my special needs child. In turn, she presented my situation as well as my child's situation to the judge and I was awarded sole custody...A.H.
I feel like it was divine intervention finding Kim to represent me in my custody case. Kim is very skilled, professional and truly does fight for her clients. Because of my naive and trusting character, I was truly put into a horrible situation by my ex-husband that seemed impossible to win. Kim took my case from the ground up and literally got me everything I was fighting for. Her skill level isn't even comparable to other attorneys with how she conducts herself and strategically positions her clients to win. I would highly recommend hiring Kim Rayner for any legal matter. Don't think twice.
Kim Rayner is an experienced lawyer who represented me in my divorce case. She is professional and extremely knowledgeable in her field. The divorce was a most awful experience and Kim remained attentive to my needs and that of my family. She is calm and confident in the court room as she advocates for her client. Kim kept on top of my case as my ex was not being compliant. She helped expedite the judicial process and divorce was final in a year. I could not have asked for a better lawyer! Would highly recommend Kim Rayner!
Working with Kim and her team was a very supportive, informative, and smooth process. Kim worked hard to make sure she understood my specific case, the history, and what I was seeking in the final custody agreement. She informed me of all decisions and made sure to communicate with me every step of the way. Her team was also very assistive. I received a call before every hearing as a reminder, was guided on all paperwork throughout my case and they were there to answer any questions I had when I called. I highly recommend Kim to anybody who is going through a custody agreement!
What can I say about the services I received from Kim Rayner. Well I’ll start by saying she was very comforting and sincere. She asked all the right questions and she was a great listener. She seemed very focused and on point at all times. I definitely felt I hired an extremely professional and qualified attorney. I would recommend her in a split second and would call her first if I needed an attorney. She won my case, and I could not have been more pleased with her services.
Kim Rayner represented me in my divorce. Divorce is no fun but I believe that Kim has a unique ability to keep the process as positive as possible. She has superb litigation abilities and is a strong negotiator. I am very grateful to Kim for the results she achieved in my case. Kim was always supportive, knowledgeable, prepared and available to talk. I have been a litigating lawyer for 36 years. It is my personal opinion as client and professional opinion as lawyer that you will not find a better lawyer to represent you in your divorce than Kim Rayner.
I hired Ms. Raynor to handle my messy, contentious divorce and other family petition issues. She is exceptionally adept at making this whole scary process easy to understand and manageable. She is highly skilled with years of practice and I feel lucky to have found her. She understands how stressful these situations can be and makes herself accessible, regardless of how small your questions are. She has helped my children and I get everything that we deserve by being the ultimate professional and by not letting us get lost in this complicated legal system. I can't recommend Ms. Raynor highly enough.
Kim was a strong and effective advocate for me.The court clearly respected her representation of my case.In addition to her excellent legal skills and many years of experience Kim is a very warm and a compassionate person.I would highly recommend Kim if you need the services of a highly professional attorney.
I knew I needed a bad ass lawyer in my tough divorce/custody case. Also one who was certified in New York and New Jersey. When I met with Kim, I knew she was the one. She listened, understood what I needed and answered any and all questions I had. She is no nonsense, tenacious in the court room and will not accept losing as an option. I am so glad she is on my side!!!
Unfortunately I have been divorced twice and over the years was represented by 4 different attorneys. Kim, by far, was over and above the others that I had. She was my only attorney for my 2nd divorce and I cannot express how well spent the money was. She knows the laws and TRULY cares for her clients and does not back down. She is strong and vocal when she needs to be and laid back as well. She follows up on things and keeps in touch with you. She takes the time to explain everything to you and goes out of her way to try and right any wrongs. The confidence and trust I have in her to do whats right by me is immeasurable. I was completely at ease with her by my side and you cannot put a value on that! I highly recommend Kim to anyone looking for a competent, aggressive, highly intelligent attorney that represents her clients to the utmost of her abilities! BTW, I know with such praise you might think Im related to her but Im not! Shes actually a wonderful attorney!
I began working with Ms. Rayner in november of 2017 during a custody and child support dispute with my child's mother through out the whole process from day one Ms. Rayner told me to stay calm and I will be just fine each time we stepped in that court room I always came out with relief and 97 percent of the time we always got what asked from the judge shes a great attorney and she will keep you at ease through the whole process and her staff is great donna and Christie are very helpful it was a breath of fresh air when a family member gave me there number to call.
