Carlye L. Goldstein, Partner, Family Law
Carlye L. Goldstein is a partner at O’Cathain Law Group, LLC, where she practices family law.
Carlye handles all areas of family and matrimonial law from pre-nuptial agreements through divorce and into post judgment matters. Known for her skilled writing ability, Carlye is primarily responsible within the firm for overseeing appellate briefs and the legal memoranda submitted in heavy duty motions.
While handling her own caseload of divorce cases, Carlye also handles all domestic violence cases within the firm. Domestic violence is one of the few areas of family law that involves regular trial appearances, and she has extensive experience doing that. Before Carlye entered private practice, she spent two years as a staff attorney at Partners for Women & Justice, a 501(c)(3) charity that provides legal advice to the victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Carlye’s practice at O’Cathain Law Group, LLC continues to help the victims of domestic violence, and people who have been wrongly blamed for domestic violence. The outcome of a domestic violence trial has a significant impact on the parenting time, custody, relocation, and visitation issues that arise in a regular divorce. Her experience in handling the domestic violence part of a divorce has given her clients the reassurance they need to focus on getting the best result for themselves and their family in the overall divorce.
Carlye’s commitment to legal advocacy to the underserved began while she was a student at Seton Hall Law School where she was a member of the Courtroom Advocates Project. In addition, she was a member of the Seton Hall Center for Social Justice which submitted an amicus curiae brief to the New Jersey Supreme Court to advocate against the discoverability of immigration status in civil cases.
When not discussing work at the office, Carlye will always be available to offer ideas about house remodeling with a family, what treats should be given to dogs, and what whiskey is best left unopened. O’Cathain Law Group and our clients are privileged to have her as a partner at the firm.
