I was very satisfied with the services Summer provided. Her associate, Marybeth was also helpful. All my questions were answered in a very timely manner and the outcome of my case was favorable. She has continued to stay in contact we me after it was all over. I felt an immediate friendship while working with these ladies as opposed to being just another number.

The first call my husband and I made to Summer Goldman was on a Friday night. She was out to dinner but still answered our call. As soon as I started talking with her I knew she was different. My family was being attacked and I was facing serious criminal charges. Her calming voice and immediate availability were the only solace we had at that time. Our first meeting was Sunday morning. I immediately felt her compassion for me as a person not just as a client. Her advice throughout the entire case proved invaluable and in hindsight was always right. Her experience working as a former prosecutor meant she not only knew all persons involved but was respected by all of her peers. No matter how busy she was she was always available and responded to my questions promptly. I was innocent and she believed it from the start. I am happy to say because of her intelligence, compassion and tenacity, all charges were dropped. Choosing be to represented by Goldman and Wetzel was the best decision we ever made.

Mrs. Goldman is a compassionate, hard-working attorney who I was
most fortunate to have found in my time of need. Mrs. Goldman was
my voice when I had none as I faced a possible Felony charge that
could have resulted in my serving time in state prison.
Mrs. Goldman’s timely intervention helped avert a more serious,
disastrous outcome, and as such has protected my rights and my
freedom by advising me on what I need to do to stay out of trouble.
While there remains a few open issues that have been spawned by
my criminal arrest, Mrs. Goldman continues to be attentive and
responsive to these collateral damages from my criminal arrest, and
continues to demonstrate her legal prowess through active
participation in the many facets of my “legal grief”.
Are you looking for THE attorney who really listens, genuinely wants
to help you, AND gets results? Then look no further, Attorney
Summer Goldman should be your attorney too.

Summer Goldman of Goldman and Wetzel was one of a few attorneys who was referred to me by family friends after i was charged with a DUI. After meeting with each of the Attorneys i could tell the Summer's firm was my best shot of beating a conviction. She was very knowledgable and passionate about her work. After each meeting with Summer i left her office feeling confidant, not defeated as most would facing a serious charge and a tough case to try in court. The process of a DUI is long and the ability to contact your attorney and have a response in a timely manner is very important. Summer and her staff were always just a phone call away. The end result of this case, was in my opinion the best case scenario. Summer was able to to get me a deal that in my research and referals is almost impossible. Even the judge was impressed with what Summer was able to work out with the State Attorneys Office. I am very thankful that i had Summer on my side. I would highly recommend her without question to anyone facing not only a DUI case but any criminal charges.

I was wrongfully accused of being a threat to a teenager of the family I married into. When sentenced the Injunction, my panic was relieved immediately after meeting with Summer. She listened, very carefully to my story. She cared. Then she began to nearly, teach me sections of the law that adhere to my case. Then her presence in the court room was like nothing else! She impressed the Judge. She is amazing and never left me out in the dark. I never felt alone, and she was sensitive to my fragile state. I am so grateful for having met her!!

Summer Goldman from Goldman & Wetzel helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life and I don’t know what I would have done without her. She is experienced and familiar with the court system and she also knew all the right people including the judge and state attorney. She went above and beyond and was always available to answer my questions and help me. Her cost was minimal compared to what she saved me in the long run. I would very highly recommend her to my closest friends and anyone in need of a great lawyer. Her partner Beth Wetzel is also a very highly skilled lawyer and having them as a team was invaluable. Basically, they saved me. If you need legal help just call Summer Goldman, you'll be very glad you did.

I STRONGLY Recommend Goldman Wetzel! Summer Goldman and Beth Wetzel took my case, although it was complicated, and did an amazing job with it, and still do to this day! They made me very comfortable, relaxed, and constantly provided me with honest re-assurance of my concerns. They made me feel like a person, not a number. I will never use another Attorney after working with them. They are amazing, and that is the only word strong enough to describe both of them. If you need an attorney, I strongly encourage you to contact them first before anyone else.

In the spring of 2011 I ran into some legal issues with the state of Florida concerning a DUI. I called Summer and asked if she would help me through it. She did everything for me from calming me down from the initial fears to getting me through the legal process. She is very professional and kind. Summer was always a phone call or email away from answering any questions I had and actually took the time to tell me when and how to handle the issues that would come up during the long process of a DUI conviction. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a lawyer.
