our mission

Trial and appellate advocacy you can trust to resolve your complex business disputes


Our legal team has a well-deserved reputation for excellence in providing smart, sensible, and cost-effective legal and business solutions for our clients.


The attorneys of Goodstein & Berman LLP are distinguished graduates of prestigious California law schools, with decades of experience assisting clients to resolve their business disputes.  We are accomplished litigators with trial and appellate experience in state and federal courts throughout California.  

We handle all aspects of litigation from pre-lawsuit investigation to trials and appeals, as well as alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and binding or non-binding arbitration. 

We serve a wide range of clientele, and every client relationship is valued greatly and treated with dignity and respect. Each engagement benefits from the depth and breadth of our expertise.

​Goodstein & Berman LLP was formed with a singular purpose: To create an environment where attorneys can practice law with professionalism, integrity and enthusiasm to deliver results that fulfill our clients' business and litigation objectives.

We implement our clients' objectives by providing personal service, dedicated effort and reasoned counsel. We cultivate close working partnerships between clients and attorneys to ensure that we remain on target every step of the way.

Lofty ideals, perhaps, but they are more than just words.  Since 2005, the lawyers of G&B have repeatedly demonstrated the value of these principles through success in the courtroom. In fact, our trial victory for the City of Compton in 2006 ranked among the top ten verdicts in California that year and was one of the top 100 verdicts nationally.

Whether your dispute involves shareholders or partners, customers or competitors, suppliers or vendors, insurers or employees, our thorough and diverse knowledge-base and years of real courtroom experience enable us to provide the aggressive, creative and diligent advocacy your important business conflicts deserve.

The members of Goodstein & Berman LLP are committed also to benefiting the communities in which we live and work. Whether providing pro bono legal services or volunteering at local charities, we contribute time, energy, and insights to the communities that we call home through active community involvement.

The creativity, intellect, loyalty, dedication and high degree of business ethics that are the foundations of our practice distinguish us and elevate us above our competition.
