Robert L. Goldstein
Robert L. Goldstein is in his seventeenth year of exclusively practicing tax and bankruptcy law. The firm has offices located throughout the Bay Area.
Prior to starting his own firm he was the lead attorney for another tax firm where he trained and supervised the tax attorneys and staff. Over the course of his career he has successfully resolved thousands of tax-related cases, a large portion of which were offers in compromise.

His experience includes successfully arguing before the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and appearing on the radio and local news as a tax expert.
