Summary

Zak T. Goldstein is a Philadelphia criminal defense lawyer who will take ownership of your case and not rest until he obtains the best possible result for you. More importantly, Mr. Goldstein is a lawyer who is not afraid to take a difficult case to trial. He has tried hundreds of cases before judges and juries, and he has successfully defended thousands of clients in both state and federal court. He has won critical pre-trial motions like motions to suppress evidence including drugs, guns, and confessions, and he has also won full acquittals for his criminal defense clients in both bench trials and jury trials. When the circumstances of the case call for it, Mr. Goldstein is a skilled negotiator. On many occasions, he is able to obtain favorable non-trial resolutions to his clients' cases, including the dismissal of charges, entry into diversionary programs like ARD, and negotiated pleas to significantly reduced charges and sentences. Zak Goldstein started his own criminal defense practice because he is passionate about defending the constitutional rights of the accused and helping victims of police misconduct obtain justice. He is an experienced advocate who will fight hard for your rights in order to make sure that you have every possible advantage when dealing with the power of the police and the prosecutor. Attorney Goldstein has experience with all types of charges ranging from misdemeanors like DUI and Simple Possession to serious felonies such as Aggravated Assault, Robbery, gun charges, Possession with the Intent to Deliver, sex crimes, and criminal Homicide.
