CLIFFORD GOLDSTEIN - After graduating Temple University and its law school summa cum laude, Clifford Goldstein served as an Assistant District Attorney under Ed Rendell in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Goldstein joined the firm of Rawle & Henderson in 1985, and became the Partner in charge of the Workers’ Compensation Unit in 1990. He was a founding partner of the law firm Weber Goldstein Greenberg & Gallagher, LLP , and served as that firm’s Managing Partner from 1991 to 1999.
Mr. Goldstein authored several articles and book chapters on various workers’ compensation related topics, including comprehensive guides to the litigation of stress claims under the Pennsylvania and Longshore & Harbor Workers’ Compensation Acts. Mr. Goldstein served as a faculty member and an author for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s Advanced Workers’ Compensation Programs from 1992 to 1999.
After defending hundreds of occupational hearing loss claims, including litigation in the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, Mr. Goldstein was engaged by the steel industry to assist in drafting a new statute to combat an avalanche of claims that threatened to cripple Pennsylvania businesses. Mr. Goldstein served as a primary drafter of Act 1 of 1995, Pennsylvania’s hearing loss compensation reform law. This statute saved Mr. Goldstein’s clients an estimated $200,000,000 in compensation payments. Mr Goldstein remains a leading expert in occupation hearing loss cases.
Mr. Goldstein took a leave of absence from the practice of law from 1999 to 2002 to found and run an investment advisory firm and to launch the AMIDEX35 Israel Mutual Fund. Mr. Goldstein was a frequent guest on CNBC, CBS Marketwatch, Fox News and CNN, commenting on the Israeli economy and Israeli stocks. He has addressed hundreds of investment groups and other organizations around the country to promote investment in Israel. Mr. Goldstein served on the Board of the America Israel Chamber of Commerce and was a recipient of the AICC’s Mayor’s Citation for his work in fostering closer business ties between the US and Israel.
Mr. Goldstein returned from New York to assist in the formation of The Chartwell Law Offices, and has served for 10 years as the firm’s CEO. He continues to litigate high profile and complex workers’ compensation cases, including the litigation of more than 20 death claims and more than 60 cases of allegedly occupationally induced cancers.
