Addressing the difficulty of finding the right lawyer when you need one, the New York State Bar Association recently launched their online legal referral program. In order to find a lawyer who has the expertise to handle the case, the user puts in their contact information and a description of their legal issue. This information is reviewed by staff at the State Bar who then refer the person to a lawyer in their area who has the experience and legal standing to handle it.
This referral is provided free of charge. The individual is under no obligation to consult with the attorney or hire them. If these do choose to consult with the lawyer the first half hour is $35 with some exceptions. If the person decided to retain the lawyer the fees charged are strictly between the lawyer and the client.
One lawyer in the city of New York Is Jeremy Goldstein, the Partner of Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates. After earning his law degree at the New York University School of Law, he specialized in executive compensation packages. He spent almost 14 years at the prestigious law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz before he started his own firm in June 2014.
One executive pay issue that Jeremy Goldstein has developed an expertise in is “Say no Pay”. This law was passed in order to give shareholders some say in what executives are paid at publicly traded companies. Jeremy Goldstein says that when a vote shows low levels of support for an executive’s pay it should serve as a warning sign that investors are not happy with their performance in regards to what they are being compensated. Jeremy Goldstein expertise is consulted when this occurs so that management is better informed on how to respond in a legal sense.
