I have known Tom Goldman for nearly twenty years. When I first met him, I self-nominated him as my mentor. He was working as a financial advisor at the time and I was a "newbie" estate planning attorney. I needed someone wiser and experienced - I chose Tom. He has the highest integrity and I would not hesitate to endorse or recommend him.
