    One of the greatest pleasures of my career so far was the opportunity to work with Ben Goldberg. Having his legal expertise accessible by a short walk down the hallway was an unparalleled resource and benefitted my practice of law immeasurably. The great thing about Ben is that his brains are matched by his heart. Few have set a better example of having the courage to demonstrate compassion and caring for their clients. He is a credit to the profession.
