Mr. Goldberg is a Founding Partner at Whiteside & Goldberg. He has extensive expertise representing individuals and families that have suffered catastrophic losses caused by the negligent conduct of other in serious personal injury and medical malpractice actions. Michael is married to his college sweetheart and they have two healthy and handsome boys together. He takes enormous pride in being the best husband and father for his family, which translates seamlessly into representing families in some of their most desperate times due to someone else’ negligence. One rarely finds such an extraordinary combination of talent, genuine passion, professional courtesy, and expertise in someone so young.
Michael has four years in a row now. According to Super Lawyers, Mr. Goldberg ranks in the top 2.5% of all lawyers in Illinois who are 40 years old and younger. At the age of 32, Michael was one of the youngest recipients of the honor in the history of the award. The American Trial Lawyers Association has honored Michael as one of the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” consistently since 2009. Even more, Michael was named as Illinois' Top 40 lawyers in 2010 by Law Bulletin Publishing, an award bestowed on only 1% of all Illinois attorneys. Michael’s experience and credibility in the personal injury and medical malpractice industry has attracted local news and radio outlets as well, including the ABC Chicago, the Chicago Tribune and Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Licensed since 2002
Michael is an exceptional attorney and an aggressive advocate for his clients. His level of preparedness is unparalleled, whether it be for a trial, pretrial motion, or deposition. He always thinks two moves ahead in every scenario, which helps him expect and be prepared for what most attorneys would consider the unexpected. Michael is the ideal attorney to have on your side in any personal injury case, whether it be an extremely complex wrongful death matter, or a simple automobile accident claim. I highly recommend Michael, and I have the utmost confidence that any client of his will be in excellent hands.
