Couldn't ask for a better lawyer! Simon helped me settle my student loan, always polite and going out of his to answer questions.

Simon did a great job helping me figure out how to get my student loan out of default. He talked to me about my options and I felt really comfortable with his knowledge about student loans. He helped me consolidate my loans. He assisted me in filling out all necesary paper work as well as contacting all parties involved. Everything was done in a timely manner and whenever I had a question I got a prompt response. I would recomend his service to anyone with student loan problems.

Simon Goldberg was very insightful and knowledgeable about the concerns I had with one particular collection agency. In addition, he took an extensive look through my credit report to provide me with the best approach to repair my credit history. When I left his office, I felt reassured, and a weight lifted off my shoulder.

Mr. Goldenberg helped me settle a student loan I cosigned years ago. The borrower had defaulted on the loan and Mr. Goldenberg was able to negotiate a fair settlement in a very timely manner. He was always available when I had questions and was very helpful explaining the settlement process. I would recommend him highly to any of my friends.

I received a letter from a debt collection agency that wanted around $22,000 for my college tuition bill. Due to the bill I wasn't able to take classes or receive my transcript to transfer to any other college. Thanks to Simon Goldenberg, I no longer have a debt and I am able to return back to college. I highly recommend Simon Goldenberd attorney office.

I was being sued for the first time ever by a collection agency and being totally in the dark not to mention apprehansive, needed a lawyer that I would feel I can TRUST. From the very first call, Simon gave me all the time in the world (which continued all through the process) while explaining to me all my options in great detail with great patience, NOT PUSHY... I came away feeling calm and confident. The whole staff was very affable throughout. What I got were answers to all my (many) questions and was constantly guided with prompt email/phone replies when necessary. To top it all the fee was most reasonable.

I had a credit account past due and transferred to a laywer's office who threatened to bring the account to the courts for a judgement against me. It was difficult to resolve the account on my own, as this creditor's lawyer was pushing me into agreements I did not want to sign into, just wanting only to resolve the account and not having to deal with a mark on my credit or my bank accounts or assets frozen. This is when I reached out to Simon Goldenberg's office for advice. Initially I did some research online which lawyers would help me best in this case, after only finding Simon's office was best suited to handling this account. It turned out he was able to resolve the account into manageable payments and I did not have to sign into any judgement agreements as Simon was able to hold off this creditor's law office from suing me. I really appreciate everything Simon worked hard to do in my favor and will continue to allocate future resources to resolve other accounts with Simon's office.

I called in for my free consultation and got it without delay or hesitation. He took the call right away and gave freely of his time - he did not try to rush me off the phone. Did not attempt to push a sale on me. Total instant added value!

I contacted the Goldenberg Firm in March 2012 and roughly 14 months after constant communication, an affordable installment plan, and tedious negotiations, Simon Goldenberg and Associate, Arthur Lebedin reduced my private loan by more than $40,000. They provided guidance, to me and the co-signers of my loan. They always replied in a timely manner to our many questions.
I personally thank Simon and his staff for facilitating this settlement. Even the private loan representative candidly stated "you're getting a good deal" toward the end of the negotiation. It was worth every penny and I will gladly seek this firm's services in the future if needed.

Simon did a fantastic job of helping me understand what my options for debt relief are. He was very knowledgeable with student loan debt and was able to explain it to me in a very clear way. He has been very open with me, and I feel he has a high level of competency in dealing with student loan debt.
The consultation is very much worth the time and money. I hope to be working with Simon more in the near future.

Simon Goldberg & Associates were professional and personable in perfect balance. They worked diligently to help me with my private educations loans problem and I am confident they did arrive at the most favorable settlement possible through their good efforts. This provided a great relief for myself and family. I would not hesitate to recommend Simon Goldberg to all those whom can use his very capable and excellent council.

My experience with Mr. Goldenberg was very positive. He listens carefully and attentively. He provided me with all available options in order for me to make the best and most informed legal decision for my particular life situation. I will highly recommend him.

I've hired 4 different lawyers over the past 4 years, each for different purposes. Mr. Goldenberg is the first attorney I've had who was truly looking out for my best interests. He doesn't try to tack on extra services and hours or try to extend your case to make more money for his firm, not an uncommon practice among lawyers, believe it or not. His knowledge in the area I needed help with (Chap.7 bankruptcy) was comprehensive. I followed his advice to the letter, and my bankruptcy went exactly as planned, discharging me of over 60K in debt. If my friends or family get into trouble with debt, Simon Goldenberg is the man I will send them to.

I used the Law Office of Simon Goldenberg to file for Bankruptcy this year and would highly recommend them to anyone. They helped me discharge $30,000 in credit card debt and the process couldn't have been easier. They were very diligent in answering all of my correspondence and made a stressful situation very manageable for myself. Feel like the weight of the world was lifted off of my shoulders!!!

I was drowning in 50K in credit card debt, crazy medical bills which I had in collections, judgments and my paychex where being slashed with garnishments. I was looking for a local Brooklyn New York debt attorney to help me sort out all this horrible mess I put myself in. I found this lawyer Simon Goldenberg on Degraw Street in Brooklyn very close to my home. Called up for real time advise and they told me to come in same day for a free credit workup meeting, they pulled my 3 credit reports and luckily I can now avoid bankruptcy chapter 7 with these guys negotiating my balances through debt settlement I can now afford, they stopped the collection phone calls and I got my back full paycheck finally, I am back on my feet again and fixing my credit with them, I highly recommend this lawyer firm. Thank you so much

Simon Goldenberg did a great job helping me with a debt collection lawsuit. He understood my situation and helped me when I felt I had nowhere to turn. My judgment is vacated and my bank account was released. I felt very comfortable during the process and the lawyers were diligent in answering my concerns and keeping in touch with me about my case. I saved over $3500 from my debt and the judgment is taken off my credit reports. I would recommend them to my friends and family. Thank you for the hard work!

Simon helped me sue a debt collector which was harassing my life with unlawful practices, we were able to settle and collected a nice check all thanks to him. He really knows what he is doing and really cares about his clients. Highly recommended and have already referred him many times over.
