Super Lawyers

Attorneys, Sheldon Goldstein and Michelle Scopellite, formed their law firm, Goldstein & Scopellite, PC, in Dallas, Texas in the year 2002 after graduating from Texas A&M School of Law (formerly Texas Wesleyan), located in Fort Worth, Texas.  Since then, they successfully achieved countless wins for their clients, by using their mediation or litigation talents, in all areas of law including Divorce, Family Law, Child Custody, Paternity, Immigration, Litigation, Contract Defense, Criminal Law and Probate Litigation and under many different scenarios. Their mutual goal in setting up this practice was to help their clients achieve their goals and understand the legal process, which can be very time consuming and expensive depending on the type of issues that are being litigated or disputed.  They knew, from their own previous experiences, with Sheldon being a professional artist and Michelle being an Engineer, what it was like to lose a case and to not have an attorney respond or act in your best interest or follow your requests.  Therefore, when they formed Goldstein & Scopellite, PC, they made sure that customer service would be paramount and that the customers needs in respect to the case, would come first.  In successfully achieving this goal, they achieved an excellent reputation and they built a strong and successful practice focusing on the family and business and including litigation, family law, divorce, immigration and estate planning, wills and trusts.  During their practice, they made sure that they looked into all possible avenues of defense and settlement, in order to achieve a successful outcome in each matter.  They took the time to listen to their clients, they responded and if needed, they developed a legal plan that met the particular needs of the client, again successfully working with each client to get them the best possible outcome in their case.
