The Goldstein Law Firm is pleased to announce that founding attorney Jeffrey M. Goldstein has been named among the Esteemed Lawyers of America®. This is the third time this year Mr. Goldstein and the firm have been awarded for their achievements and client service, following the firm’s recognition as Best Franchise Disputes Law Firm 2017 – USA by Acquisition International and Franchise Law Firm of the Year in the 2017 Finance Monthly Law Awards.

Esteemed Lawyers of America® (ELOA) is an organization whose mission is, “to recognize the most respected lawyers in the country.” It seeks to help individuals and businesses find quality legal representation by offering a list of attorneys who are both (i) recommended by their peers, and (ii) qualified for recognition based upon their experience, commitment to client service and ethical standards. As described by the organization:

“ELOA was established to honor those attorneys who are the most respected and esteemed by their peers throughout the legal community, and to help consumers identify them. . . . The best attorneys are being replaced by better marketers[,] and consumers don’t often know who the finest lawyers are anymore. By identifying the top lawyers as determined by the people who know them best – other lawyers – and educating the public as to who they are, Esteemed Lawyers of America® aims to change that.”

Selection Criteria for Esteemed Lawyers of America®

Membership in Esteemed Lawyers of America® is conditioned upon successful completion of a two-stage application process. The first stage is the initial identification of the candidate, which can be done through a peer recommendation, selection by ELOA or submission of an application for recognition. Once a candidate has been identified, ELOA then conducts independent research to assess:

  • The quality of peer recommendations
  • Past case results
  • Client recommendations and reviews
  • Any history of disciplinary proceedings
  • Other pertinent qualifications

Unlike attorney databases and search engines that rank attorneys based upon their marketing abilities or willingness to pay for premium ad placement, ELOA’s list of distinguished attorneys includes only those lawyers who have successfully completed its rigorous review process.
