Biography of Jacob A. Goldstone
Oneida County, NY Biographies





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.
