A Short History of Our Firm

GP Founders

Goldstein and Price, L.C. was founded on a handshake in 1957 between partners Milton I. Goldstein and Elmer Price. Their guiding vision was simple and straightforward: to represent their clients vigorously, creatively and ethically. "Our feeling is the law is a profession and should be practiced that way," Goldstein said.

Their principled but aggressive approach not only satisfied clients but won converts. James S. Burrall, then Risk Manager of Walker Towing Co., told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, about why he hired the firm after being grilled on the witness stand by one of its attorneys: "I was so impressed, as well as being so angry, that I decided I had to have them on my side. They are the kind of firm that responds anyplace anytime."

Like the industries it serves, and the St. Louis riverfront depicted below in the mid-1960s, Goldstein and Price, L.C. has changed and adapted over the past half-century. But the firm's membership remains committed to the same fundamental principles that guided its founders: to represent our clients effectively and aggressively within the bounds of legal propriety.
