Owner, Goldstein & Bashner, P.C.

At sixteen, Neal Goldstein dropped out of high school. It was the last in a long line of defeats for an underprivileged boy, self-raised in a tumultuous home with an abusive father and a mother who was significantly disabled with Multiple Sclerosis.

Neal did the only thing he could think to do: quit dreaming of a future, get a job, and look after his mom as well as he could.
