Goldstein is nationally renowned for his brilliant criminal defense advocacy and extraordinary skills as a lecturer. A 1991 recipient of the Rober C. Heeney Memorial Award from the NACDL, he served as amicus curiae for the NACDL in many high-profile cases, including CNN v. Manuel Noriega (1990), opposing network broadcasting of government tapes of Noriega’s conversations with his attorneys; and Joe Does v.

His congressional testimony during the 1996 House Waco hearings is credited with helping to turn the tide against further suppression of citizen’s rights in America. Goldstein served as President of the NACDL from 1994-1995. Goldstein previously served as President of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association from 1992-1993. In 2002, he received the high honor of induction into the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Hall of Fame.
