Attorney Robert Goldstein was born and raised in a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1983, Attorney Goldstein moved to Cleveland, Ohio to attend Case Western Reserve University, where he served as Secretary of his fraternity, Zeta Beta Tau, and President of his class for his first two years of college. After earning his degree in Psychology, Attorney Goldstein worked a series of jobs ranging from computer consulting to selling fire extinguishers door-to-door, while he explored a career in sand-up comedy.
Two years later, having not successfully earned his own late night talk show, Attorney Goldstein decided to pursue a more stable career, so he began completing applications to enter a Masters' program in Social Work. During that process, he received a speeding ticket which changed his life forever. He defended himself in court, successfully obtaining a not guilty verdict, even though the police officer claimed to have caught him speeding with radar. Attorney Goldstein immediately knew what needed to be done next.
In 1989, Attorney Goldstein moved to Columbus to attend The Ohio State University College of Law. He served as President of the Student Bar Association, receiving the coveted Bronze Key Award from the Law School Division of the American Bar Association. He earned his Juris Doctorate degree in law in 1992.
After immediately passing the Ohio Bar Exam, Attorney Goldstein joined the Columbus office of the firm of Hyatt Legal Services, where he worked as a lawyer for three successful years, earning himself a promotion to the position of managing attorney. On September 15, 1995, Attorney Goldstein discovered that in starting his own legal practice, he could be more effective in helping people deal with a variety of legal issues, including but not limited to Bankruptcy, Divorce, Dissolution, Civil, Criminal, Probate and Estate Planning matters. Since then, Attorney Goldstein has represented thousands of clients in State and Federal Courts throughout the Columbus area. Over the past 22 years, Attorney Goldstein has come to fully realize his passion for helping people at all levels of litigation in the Chillicothe area. Protection of client's rights is his primary concern. In June, 2011, Mr. Goldstein was interviewed by the Channel 10 News as a legal expert.
Attorney Goldstein's non-legal interests continue to include magic, improvisation, and stand-up comedy, and he has performed in clubs and colleges all over the United States. He also spent many years in Columbus community theater and was a co-founder of the Columbus Lawyer's Performance Ensemble. His acting skills have been utilized in educational seminars for students, workshops for court security personnel and for lawyers' continuing legal education classes. His new office in Chillicothe, Ohio services clients in Ross County, and in surrounding areas.
