Sills Cummis & Gross P.C. has announced that Bruce I. Goldstein, chairman of the law firm of Saiber Schlesinger Satz & Goldstein, became a member of the firm, effective February 1, and will continue his focus on complex litigation.
Throughout his career as a litigator, Mr. Goldstein's expertise in business litigation, as well as in the defense of white collar crime, evolved from his ability to uniquely strategize complex concepts.
Within the last year, Mr. Goldstein was awarded the Judge Learned Hand Award for Humanitarianism by the American Jewish Committee and the 2007 New Jersey Bar Association's Professional Lawyer of the Year Award for Essex County. His lifelong commitment to teaching and trial advocacy was recognized by the Trial Advocacy Institute of the University of Virginia School of Law by conferring on Mr. Goldstein the Justice William J. Brennan Award for Trial Advocacy.
Mr. Goldstein demonstrated his legal prowess from the beginning of his career starting out as an assistant United States attorney who was quickly promoted to chief of special prosecutions and then to executive assistant U.S. attorney where he was responsible for the prosecution of political corruption. In recognition of his accomplishments, the Department of Justice conferred on him the Attorney General's Distinguished Service Award, an award which is conferred on an annual basis to only one federal prosecutor in the United States.
