About Us

At Goldstein & Associates/Law Offices-Mediation Center, we believe that there is more to legal representation than just application of the law.  Each client comes to us with a unique set of facts and goals.  New clients frequently have discussed their concerns with friends and/or family and have received suggestions from these concerned individuals.  However, those suggestions may have been inappropriate or inaccurate and may have caused the client concern, confusion or fear.  We recognize that the client’s “helpers” are caring individuals and suggest that the client  appreciate the suggestions but to discuss all concerns with the attorney. 

We also believe that the best way to represent each client is to be able to see all sides of a controversy. By taking a “client’s rights” rather than a “men’s rights” or “women’s rights” approach to the practice of law, we believe we are better able to tailor our services to the unique needs of each client.  We recognize that a realistic approach to potential outcome is far superior to promises that cannot be kept or to expectations that are unreasonable.

We offer consultation and representation in the following legal areas:

Family Law

Divorce

Paternity

Maintenance/Alimony

Child Custody

Child Support

Adoption

Domestic Violence

Post-Dissolution Matters

Mediation - Family Issues

Criminal and Traffic Law

We understand the need for legal assistance at a time when you may not be at your emotional best.  We can offer guidance, advice, and direction to help you make the best decisions for you and your family.


Goldstein and Associates has been located in Mokena, Illinois since 1993.  New clients are often referred by former clients, by other attorneys, or as a result of our positive reputation in the community. Some clients even contact us after hearing about us from former opposing parties.

Led by principal attorney Judy A. Goldstein, our law firm takes a hands-on approach to case.  Additionally, we believe it is important for our clients to remain actively involved in their own cases.  While we feel that the best outcome is the negotiated one - which allows clients to participate in the process and outcome of their cases - we are not afraid to aggressively fight in the courtroom for our clients and their rights.

Over the years, our firm name has evolved from Judy A. Goldstein – Attorney at Law, to Law Offices of Judy A. Goldstein, and finally, to Goldstein & Associates/Law Offices-Mediation Center. These name changes reflect our professional growth and experience.  We have created a casual but warm and comfortable atmosphere that may be less intimidating than the environment at some more traditional law offices. We offer quality, professional and ethical legal representation at fair and reasonable fees.

Goldstein & Associates is located in Mokena, Illinois.  We are easily accessible via I-57, I-80, I-355, 191st Street, Route 30, Wolf Road, and LaGrange Road.  Our clients reside in Mokena, Frankfort, New Lenox, Manhattan, Lockport, Homer Glen, Orland Park, Tinley Park and Joliet as well as other local communities in Will and Cook Counties.  We also represent a significant number of out-of-state clients.

We at Goldstein & Associates consider ourselves “Real People Helping Real People.”  We want our clients to be comfortable with us and with our services on their behalf.  To schedule an introductory consultation, please call (708) 479-0800 or contact us online.
