Daniel F. Goldstein

Dan Goldstein’s love of trial work has led to a wide-ranging practice that includes complex commercial matters, high-impact public interest litigation, personal injury, white collar criminal defense, and court appointments to represent defendants charged federally with death-eligible offenses.

Dan’s class action litigation experience includes a case before the EEOC on behalf of Social Security Administration employees with disabilities who made the best qualified list but were denied promotions; defending a class action brought against directors of a failed savings and loan; and serving as local counsel for both plaintiffs and defendants in class action securities litigation.  His business litigation has included intellectual property and trade secret cases, contract matters and business partnership disputes.

As counsel for the National Federation of the Blind, Dan has initiated a national legal campaign to ensure access to technology. This work has gone beyond litigation to partnerships, including the negotiation of joint technology agreements with technology developers such as Amazon.com.

Dan is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, has been listed among Maryland’s Top 50 Super Lawyers, and is a 2010 winner of The Daily Record’s Leadership in Law Award. In 2011, Dan received the American Bar Association’s Paul G. Hearne Award for Disability Rights. This award is presented each year to an individual who has made significant contributions to further the rights, dignity, and access to justice for people with disabilities. Also, he has been selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© Civil Rights Law, Commercial Litigation, and White Collar Criminal Defense categories and in 2012, was selected for Fellowship in the Litigation Counsel of America, a highly selective and by-invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society whose membership is limited to less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers.
