Primary Focus & Experience

Ms. Goldstein is the former Chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force at the United States Attorney’s Office. She joined the US Attorney’s Office in 2004, where she prosecuted a wide range of securities fraud cases, among others, and was promoted to Chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force in 2015 after serving as Deputy Chief for one year, and before that Co-Chief of the General Crimes Unit for two years.

During her nearly three years as a chief, Ms. Goldstein supervised a team of approximately 20 senior prosecutors and all aspects of the unit’s work from investigation through prosecution, including a broad array of cases involving accounting and disclosure fraud, insider trading, market manipulation, mismarking of complex products, corporate fraud, and fraudulent investor schemes, among others. Notable prosecutions brought under her leadership include: a professional gambler charged with trading on inside information obtained from a board member of a publicly traded company; corporate executives charged with honest services fraud; a hedge fund portfolio manager charged with trading on inside information obtained from a political consultant; a hedge fund portfolio manager charged with the mismarking of illiquid fund assets; and senior executives charged with a multi-year accounting fraud scheme at a publicly traded digital media company, as well as the market manipulation of the company’s stock and investment advisor fraud. She also supervised the unit’s trials and appeals.

As an Assistant US Attorney, Ms. Goldstein was an accomplished trial lawyer and argued numerous appeals in the Second Circuit. Among the high-profile cases she tried were U.S. v. Mandell, et al. (a $100-million market manipulation and investor fraud, which resulted in a 12-year sentence) and U.S. v. Ebbers (public company accounting fraud by the CEO of WorldCom, which resulted in a 25-year sentence). As Chief of the General Crimes Unit, she supervised the office’s new Assistant US Attorneys, numerous investigations and dozens of trials.

Before becoming a prosecutor, Ms. Goldstein was an associate at a major national law firm.
