A Closer Look at Our Tucson, Arizona Law Firm

The law firm of Goldstein & Scopellite, PC was formed in 2002 by founding members Attorney Sheldon Goldstein and Attorney Michelle Scopellite, who met in law school and, after graduating, decided that they would form a firm that would be based on helping people win their case. Their goals have remained the same: Help their clients with the legal issues confronting them, make sure they understand the legal process, communicate with them and work to get them the best possible outcome. At Goldstein & Scopellite, PC, our staff works diligently to provide our clients with the best possible customer service, skilled mediators, experienced litigators, and the best personalized assistance available to them with their business and/or family law matters in Tucson, Arizona.

We understand that when you need an attorney, you are looking for someone who will listen to you, who will understand your goals and who will take them into consideration during the litigation process. At Goldstein & Scopellite, PC, our attorneys do just that and we also understand that each case is unique and that a cookie-cutter approach simply will not work. Our qualified litigation attorneys will treat each of our clients with the respect and care they deserve throughout the entire legal and litigation process.

Achieving our Client’s Goals

At Goldstein & Scopellite, PC, we take pride in providing the best possible legal assistance to our clients. We understand that when you are in need of legal assistance, whenever possible, you want to avoid a long, drawn-out and costly litigation process. Who doesn’t? Our highly skilled attorneys will negotiate with the other side and we will work to resolve your matter as quickly as possible. The two founding partners of the firm are certified mediators who have mediated hundreds of matters over the years in both civil and business disputes and family law and child custody matters, and they have trained their staff to understand that trying to achieve a settlement is a much better situation than going to trial. Our trial attorneys will harness your ideas and your evidence and they will obtain and use the evidence of the opposing side to garner the best possible evidence. They will then use that evidence and research the law so that they can come up with the best possible legal outcome. They will then use that research and evidence and present it to the opposing side so that they can attempt to resolve your case as quickly and as successfully as possible. However, when necessary, our dedicated staff will be fully prepared to litigate your case before the court. As a Tucson family law practice, our child custody and family law attorneys are committed to working with you, so that we can achieve the best possible outcome in your specific case.

As experienced Tucson family lawyers and litigators, we have found that the additional stress of trial during a custody battle or a divorce proceeding, involving children or property or both, can be avoided through mediation and/or other forms of negotiation. We understand that when the parties can agree on the major issues, or even some of the issues, it is far less damaging to the relationship of the parties and their children than fighting the entire case all the way through to trial. Our attorneys will provide you with strategy, and they will work through negotiation or mediation services to try to achieve a resolution to your matter, but when the parties simply cannot agree, we will be prepared to ensure that you get your day in court.

Our Proactive Approach

At Goldstein & Scopellite, PC, we know that every legal situation is unique. In order to understand your views so that we can present them to the other side or to the court, we take the time to communicate with you each step of the way possible. We will ensure that we communicate with you and we will work to get your approval on major issues whenever possible or necessary. We will work to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are involved in your case and the outcome of your case, whether we are dealing with mediation or going through the trial process.

Because we take the time to determine what your goals are from the beginning of your case, and because we keep you involved, we will know what result you are looking to achieve and we will work to try to achieve that goal. Once we determine your goals, we will work tirelessly to bring them to fruition.

We know that our best client is a client who feels that we are on their side and that we are keeping them informed about the status of their case. As an experienced Tucson law firm that provides both general civil business and family law services, we know that the more involved you are in your case, the more likely it is that you will be satisfied with the outcome of your case. At Goldstein & Scopellite, PC, we will work to ensure that you get all of the information that we have available to us, along the way, and so you are never left in the dark and so that we are not caught off guard with undisclosed information.

Competitive Fee Structure

At Goldstein & Scopellite, PC, our lawyers believe that you should retain qualified legal counsel when you are involved in a litigious matter and that you should not represent yourself, if at all possible. Because of this, we work to ensure that our fees are structured in a reasonable manner and that our hourly rate is kept low enough so that our clients can afford quality legal representation at an affordable rate and so that we can maintain our office expenses. We feel that by maintaining the fee structures we have, with both our retainers and our hourly rate, that our clients can maintain the quality legal counsel and advice they need in their matter and throughout the trial, if necessary. If warranted, our legal team will work with our clients to explore payment options so that they can maintain their legal representation throughout their matter and through to the end of their case.

Keep in mind, you are not the only person out there who is going through the litigation process and that having proper legal representation can be expensive. Yes, the litigation process in itself is expensive to everyone. And, making sure that your attorney has the necessary fees and expenses to hire and do what is necessary for you to present your case, is the best alternative, can give you an advantage in the case. Regardless, our firm will work with you and with the opposing side and we will work through mediation and other negotiation alternatives to try to resolve your matter in the most expeditious manner possible and to save you the expense of a trial. However, when this cannot occur, our family law and child custody attorneys in Pima County AZ (near Armory Park) will work with our clients to finalize their matter during the costly and time consuming litigation and trial process and to present their case to the court while protecting their rights in court during the process.
