Jacob A. Goldstone, regarded as one of the rising young attorneys of Utica, his professional ability being demonstrated
in the large clientage extended to him, was born in Ogdensburg, St. Lawrence county, New York, June 4, 1872. His
father, Phillip Goldstone, is a resident of Ogdensburg and a leading business man there, engaged in general merchandising.
He married Bailey R. Oppenheim, and for many years they have been widely known in Ogdensburg.
In the family home Jacob A. Goldstone spent his boyhood and youth, and completed his literary education by graduation
from the Free Academy of that place, with the class of 1890. He afterward took up the study of law in his native
city, in the office and under the direction of Robert E. Waterman, then city attorney; and was admitted to the
bar in 1898. The following year, he located for practice in Utica, where he has since remained. He has never specialized
to any great extent in a given department of the law but has continued in general practice, and his work has indicated
his thorough familiarity with judicial principles. He carefully analyzes his cases and never shuns the thorough
preparation of the office which must always precede the forceful presentation of a cause before the courts. He
belongs to both the County and State Bar Associations and is justly accounted one of the representative young attorneys
of the city; he is, also, active in practice in the county court.
Mr. Goldstone has never aspired to political office, preferring to concentrate his energies upon his professional
duties. Fraternally, he is connected with the Red Men; and his political allegiance is given to the republican
party. His record proves that close application, the utilization of native talents and keen powers of analyzation
and discrimination will win success in the difficult and arduous profession of the law.
