Judge Goldstein hid evidence that would have cleared an innocent guy. That guy got 9 years in state prison for crime he never committed! Wrongfully accused!Falsely arrested. Jury was tainted, and the public defender said nothing! The DA used lying witnesses to convict! Who is going to give that guy back his life the Judge took from him? I also witnessed the Judge sentence a mentally challenged guy to Donovan prison.That Judge is corrupt!

The only judge that seems to take his job seriously and attempting to help those that have made mistakes. He sees the good in people and is a very understanding and often funny judge. Most judges act like your not even standing there whereas this judge will actually talk to you and make eye contact. Best judge ever

Sitting in Judge Goldstein's court was the greatest experience ever! It is evident that he REALLY cares about EVERYONE before him. I can never thank him enough for providing my Son (as well as every defendant I saw appear before him) the tools and opportunity to get their lives back on track should they so desire!
