Jeremy Goldstein: Growing Legal Business

Jeremy Goldstein is a partner at his own firm, Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates. His law firm hosts an array of corporate clients, including compensation committees, CEOs, management teams, and corporations. They specialize in advising their clients on matters of executive compensation and corporate governance. Many of these issues involve sensitive situations.

Jeremy Goldstein also sits as Chair of the Mergers & Acquisitions Subcommittee of the Executive Compensation Committee of the American Bar Association Business Section. Needless to say, he’s an authority on matters involving executive compensation. He’s even listed as a leading executive compensation lawyer by The Legal 500, a law-based publication.

Lately, the New York State Bar Association has updated many of its divisions. One division, in particular, the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS), has seen numerous improvements. Last year, the entire LRIS staff was trained to handle over 10,000 phones calls from the public.

The LRIS also announced the launch of its first online service. The online option is far more convenient than the old phone service. The online service is available 24 hours a day and offers a less stressful way to find legal help. According to State Bar President Claire Gutekunst, people look for legal help during times of extreme stress.

The online service is also easier to use. Step one is filling out a detailed questionnaire. The questionnaire describes that individual’s legal issues and where they live in New York. For New York residents, this is the only step until they get matched with an attorney.

After the questionnaire is submitted, it’s reviewed by a State Bar staff member, and then it gets matched with a local attorney. It’s completely up to that person to decide whether to retain that lawyers services.
