Jeremy Goldstein Helps People with Mental Illness

Too often, high-profile professionals flash numerous college diplomas and big-name clients at people to persuade them that they’re the best. When it comes to Jeremy Goldstein, he doesn’t need to flash anything; his clients know he’s the best. Clients come from all over New York just to have a meeting with Jeremy Goldstein.

Mr. Goldstein’s career officially began at the law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen, and Katz. That’s where he first made partner, but he wanted more, so he left. After establishing his own law firm, Jeremy Goldstein and Associates, his reputation began to precede him. Clients started trusting his word over their own lawyers.

Though his career is a shining example of success; he’s quickly becoming known for his philanthropic work with Fountain House. Fountain House is an organization that’s dedicated to the recovery of men and women with mental illness.

Unfortunately, the biggest issue affecting people with mental illness is the stigma surrounding mental illness. People are too afraid to talk about their problems, which only makes things worse as their lives disintegrate around them. To raise awareness and money, Goldstein recently hosted two wine dinners for the top private donors of New York.

The first dinner was so well-received; guest wanted him to host another dinner in the same fashion. On top of the NoMad Hotel, overlooking the New York skyline, Goldstein’s dinner raised over $56,000. Much of that money went to supporting Fountain House’s professional self-help program.

At another Fountain House-sponsored event, George Petrides was honored for his work with the organization. Petrides has successfully dealt with Bipolar II for most of his life, and recently, he “came out” and helped others struggling to cope with similar mental issues.
