Attorney at Law
Based in Minneapolis
First-class employer protection from affordable in-house counsel.
Too busy to be your own legal advocate? With me on your team, you won't have to sweat the small - or big - employment law fiascos.
What you don’t know can hurt you. Rest assured - protection is available.
There are thousands of state and federal laws protecting employees, but few protecting your business.
My expertise and availability ensures quality counsel on-demand.
Customized Employee Handbooks. Exceptional legal protection.
Expert Human Resource oversight.
My extensive experience in law and HR poises me to provide comprehensive and insightful counsel.
What You Have at Risk
Human resource issues present challenging obstacles to
productivity and profitability.
You simply don’t have time to become well versed on the massive and ever-changing law and best employment practices.
Loss of profit, employee morale, legal liability and ultimately the demise of a business can result from a well-intentioned attempt to take on too many functions.
There is not only a tight job market, but also a tumultuous and volatile workforce; you need to work in tandem with a qualified human resources professional.
"Charles Goldstein drafted my office's first Employee Handbook. He carefully and thoroughly informed me about the applicable provisions, explored our office dynamics, present and potential employee issues and my mission and vision statements. I am so appreciative that Charlie encouraged me to finally implement an Employee Handbook- a task I had procrastinated way too long! I recommend him wholeheartedly."

My hours are flexible to meet your changing needs.
I prioritize preventive measures and alternative dispute resolution to keep my cost reasonable and maintain a positive company atmosphere.

In-house counsel has an employee's level of duty to your company.
In-house counsel gathers familiarity with your business and industry over time.
My experiences have prepared me to provide comprehensive legal counsel in case of unforeseen developments in your business’ journey.
This position prevents the typical phenomenon of outside counsel delegating substantial work to inexperienced associate attorneys, law clerks or paralegals.
Correspondence from your in-house counsel may carry special weight - it indicates you have the internal resources to deal with legal issues and are not burdened by privacy concerns or the cost of an outside law firm.
