Creative Lawyering

His dark eyes brimmed with sincerity and love for his people. Having grown up in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, the man who sat across from me in the coffee shop once attended Akiba Hebrew Academy in Lower Merion Township. I listened intently as Benjamin Goldstein began describing his effort to help the Israeli economy.

Ben is the founder and president of TranscriptSure Legal Services Inc., described as an innovative and unique solution of off-shoring legal work to Americans living in Israel.

“One of the biggest challenges facing the Israeli economy today,” Ben said, “is that 20 percent of the population in Israel is ultra-Orthodox.” These people find it difficult to integrate into the workforce because of language and cultural barriers, flexibility issues, and issues of modesty.

So Ben came up with a way to help Americans who live in Israel and are often ultra-Orthodox and much more traditional for family and religious reasons.

TranscriptSure Legal Services, with an office in Moorestown, New Jersey, offers legal services to people outside Israel using religious, American Jews living in Israel. Ben runs the firm from America and employs six workers in Israel.

He began his company in 2008 toward the beginning of the economic slow-down. It was then he recognized he could offer legal assistance at substantial cost savings and still provide high quality service. Ben said the firm attracts top American graduates from such universities as Harvard, Yale, University of Pennsylvania, and New York University.

“People don’t realize the workforce in Israel is very talented and qualified,” Ben said, “and they treat Israel as a charity case and not as an economic business partner. Israel has now reached a point where it has developed tremendous innovation and talent, ready to become an active player in the business world.”

Israel also struggles because it has few natural resources. Yet it produces products through sheer innovation and talent. Unfortunately, many countries have a negative perception of Israel because they erroneously see Israel as an oppressor of the Palestinians. So they boycott Israeli-made products, hurting the tiny Jewish state.

TranscriptSure, which can be found on the Web at www.transcriptsure.com, provides quality assistance to the legal community, insurance companies, and other agencies nationwide, specializing in various medical, paralegal, and back-office functions commonly performed throughout the litigation process. Its services include, but are not limited to, medical record review and summary, medical and legal research, online investigative research, deposition transcript summary, and general litigation support.

Connecting Ben to American firms is the best way to aid TranscriptSure and help support this small Israeli business. Ben added, “Israel can flourish again in the business sense, and we have the great privilege of being a part of that.”
