Matthew Goodstein, Esq.

Attorney – Personal Injury Law

Matthew Goodstein, Esq. is a Personal Injury Attorney at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP. Mr. Goodstein and PPID Partner, Adam Handler, develop personalized strategies for injured clients to obtain the best results possible.

I have been fighting for the rights of victims since 2008, whether it be for the rights of those injured in accidents, those injured in workplace accidents, or crime victims. I believe that the best resolutions come from attorneys that are invested in their clients – and that is the type of relationship that The Case Handler team strives for. That means being involved with our clients from the inception of the case all the way through resolution. There is a strength that comes from that relationship and trust.

There is also a strength that comes from a career of litigating cases. Law is more than just reading and writing – it is adversarial and demands that you have a skilled advocate on your side that can get you the best result possible and take your case to trial if needed.

I bring both great relationships and great advocacy skills, exemplified by a history of winning, to each and every case we take and will make those relationships and skills work for you.

People come to see me when they are at their worst. Their lives have been turned upside down and they need help putting everything back together. Let us be the ones you can lean on to help.

Mr. Goodstein is a 2005 graduate of the Indiana University – Kelley School of Business, Bloomington, Indiana and a 2008 graduate of the UIC John Marshall Law School, Chicago, Illinois. After graduating law school, Mr. Goodstein served as an Assistant State’s Attorney (ASA), representing the State of Illinois in criminal prosecutions. During his time as an ASA, Mr. Goodstein successfully tried countless jury trials, bench trials, hearings and motions. After leaving the State’s Attorney’s office, Mr. Goodstein practiced civil litigation and workers’ compensation in a boutique law firm, representing accident victims and injured workers.

Mr. Goodstein lives in New Jersey with his wife and kids.
