Sophisticated Legal Representation for the Country and the City. Barrie L. Goldstein spent the first five years of her career at the Civil Division, United States Department of Justice, through its Honors Program. She defended complex regulatory schemes, including, housing, renegotiation of government contracts, civil rights and two-tier price controls on domestic and imported oil. Ms. Goldstein successfully defended the National Flood Insurance Program against a constitutional challenge brought under the taking clause. After litigating commericial litigation cases in the private sector with a New York City law firm, Ms. Goldstein joined the Office of the New York Attorney General as Special Litigation Counsel where she served for thirteen years. In this capacity, she handled unique and complex matters involving many diverse issues such as the regulation of prescription drug prices under Medicaid, civil rights, bankruptcy, and intergovernmental disputes. Finally, Ms. Goldstein represented New York in the well-known Farmland Dairy litigation where New York barred this New Jersey milk dealer from the New York market. Ms. Goldstein re-entered private practice in 1995. She handled a $20 million lawsuit involving control of a Connecticut office building. The matter was first arbitrated, then litigated in New York state court, and finally was resolved before the federal district and bankruptcy court in Connecticut. For close to five years, Ms. Goldstein served as a Director of Special Litigation at The Legal Aid Society. She acted as lead counsel in the landmark decision involving the constitutionality of removing children from their mothers when the mothers, themselves, were victims of domestic violence. The matter was litigated in the federal trial and appellate court and, ultimately, in the New York State Court of Appeals. In addition to her admission in the New York and Connecticut bar, Ms. Goldstein is a member of the bar of the United States Supreme Court and several federal district and federal courts of appeals. She has over thirty reported decisions that reflect the depth of her experience. Ms. Goldstein graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Syracuse University in 1971 and graduated with honors from George Washington Law School in 1974. She has been honored on many occasions throughout her career. She received the Distinguished Service Award from the National Association of Attorneys General, on two occasions, in 1989 and in 1992, for representing 30 states in asbestos litigation. In 1995, she received the "Chairperson Extraordinaire" award, again for her work in asbestos litigation. The New York County Lawyers' Association recognized her exemplary pro bono contributions when it awarded her its "CLE Program Chair Award.". She is an active participant in The Federal Bar Council, as a former co-chair of the organization and a member of its Program Committee. She belongs to the Connecticut Bar Association and the Litchfield County Bar Association. Ms. Goldstein has written on the subject of the inequities in the financing of public education.
