Despite having led a prestigious career one might be surprised to find that this larger than life corporate lawyer, Jeremy Goldstein, is not always confident in himself. Like most of us, he has wrestled with self-doubt. He gets past this by focusing on the rationality of the situation and what he could logically do within his ability. He recognized that those moments are not a fact but rather simply feelings and use that to overcome them to succeed. One might say that conquering himself is what lets him be as successful as he has become.


In his early days as a new lawyer, Jeremy Goldstein got his career started using referrals through a professional legal network, something he notes not everyone starting out as lawyers know about or know how to use effectively.


Even now Jeremy Goldstein picks the cases he knows will bring him the image he wants to have publicly. What sort of publicity will this case bring him? This is something he considers. Jeremy Goldstein is, additionally, not afraid to consult colleagues when he feels the need to do so and enjoys being in a field where he occasionally does feel challenged. He is always on the lookout for new tools to add to his repertoire to help his clients. This can be anything from a book about ideas and how to make them stick to a new software program to save time.
