Finding the 'PERFECT' Lawyer: FOR DUMMIES
Regardless of the reason you may find yourself in need of a lawyer, BE
SMART and RETAIN THE SERVICES OF DARRYL GOLDBERG ASAP!
I can only give you my perspective as someone that had a serious
offense and DID ALL THE WRONG THINGS!
1. I confessed without representation
2. I let too much time go by before seeking an attorney
3. I listened to other people who didn't understand... YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
DARRYL IS AMAZING! The type of lawyer you want on your case is A
CHAMPION, right!? You don't want someone who ‘hopes to win’, or
‘thinks they can win’!
You want someone that:
1. Has a proven track record
2. Has a profound understanding of the law and an intuitive nature to
3. ‘KNOWS’ THEY CAN WIN!!!
If you are reading this you or someone you care about has screwed up
and NEED HELP!
So, lets not BS ourselves, and think that 'WINNING' means getting off
'WINNING' means getting THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME for what you know
you probably did!
As I said I did all the wrong things, and everyone from the federal
investigator to the prosecutor wanted me in jail!
If I had gone to jail, MY LIFE WOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN WHAT IT COULD! I
have too many people depending on me, but I couldn't get acquitted,
because I screwed up and told on myself before I even spoke with an
attorney! (PLEASE DON'T CONSIDER DOING THAT!)
Thinking because I was a 'GOOD GUY or GAL' and that you have a reason
for doing what you did that would impress the prosecutor so they would
say what? “Oh, he did what's right, just LET HIM/HER GO!” ARE YOU
With the system designed the way it is, and the perfection in which
it was put together, if you want to make money off of locking people
up... YOU DON'T HAVE A SHOT and neither did I!
My wife and I called other attorneys, and forgive my vernacular...
THEY WERE FULL OF ‘IT’!
They didn't care about me, what they did, and they were lifetimes away
from being ‘A MASTER’ at what they do in the strict procedural justice
Darryl Goldberg is a freakin' MASTER!
'WINNING' for me was keeping someone so stupid to think that that
criminal justice system gave a crap about who I am and why I did what
I did OUT OF PRISON!
Guess what? WE WON!
I cannot tell you the surreal feeling I have every day knowing that I
had someone that HAD MY BACK!
Darryl does 3 things EXCEPTIONALLY WELL:
1. RESPOND to you, so you are not left hanging
2. GIVE it to you straight, so you are not left wondering
3. 'WIN' for you, so you are not left regretting
I have to get real with you for a second, because this is not 'play
time', THIS IS YOUR F'ing LIFE!
You can roll the dice with someone who is just going to suck up all
your cash and not CARE about what happens to you, (I call that 'PAYING
FOR A PUBLIC DEFENDER'), or you can do what you have to do to SECURE
DARRYL GOLDBERG AS YOUR CHAMPION, so YOU TOO CAN 'WIN'!

I hired Mr. Goldberg to represent me in a case where the state’s attorney alleged that they had numerous pieces of evidence, including a blood sample, to convict me of driving under the influence. Mr. Goldberg was knowledgeable, professional and made sure that I was informed every step of the way. A better than desirable solution was reached, without a trial, as a result of Mr. Goldberg’s hard work. I would wholeheartedly endorse Mr. Goldberg for anyone seeking legal representation.

My fiancé was facing a class X felony.. We were interviewing lawyers and from the moment we sat down with Darryl I knew he was the lawyer to win his case!!! He jumped right on top of what he needed to do!! He was confident in what he did... He answered my calls at 2am!!! He sincerely cared about our situation.. He knew that my fiancé was the glue that held our family together and he said to me that he wasn't going to let him go to jail and he was right!! He was found not guilty!!! Thank you Darryl for keeping our family together!!!!

If you have any type of criminal case, you NEED to hire Darryl Goldberg. I was currently on probation, and my ex-lawyer told me I was going to jail for a year with this new charge. I was scared for my life, and that's when I hired Darryl. Darryl walked into the court room with confidence, and we walked out with Probation and Community Service. After sentencing, Darryl went into my probation hearing for violating probation, and got me probation ON TOP of probation! Darryl cares for his clients, and answers every phone call - even at 11 pm at night! He is prompt in getting back to you, even when he's in court. Darryl will not leave you hanging. Without a doubt, if you care about you and your family, I recommend Darryl Goldberg 100%. You will be making a big mistake if you don't call him for help. He is all you will need and has a proven track record of success.

Darryl Goldberg is an awesome lawyer. I would be in jail if it wasn't for him. I had a 5 year old Dui case that I never took care of and got arrested for a warrant for not going to court years ago, plus I was driving on a suspended license. I have a previous felony from years ago so thing weren't looking good. He fought for me and I got out of jail with a year of probation..I would highly recommend him!

I cannot speak highly enough about Darryl Goldberg, without him I would be rotting in prison right now. In March of 2011 my house was raided and I was subsequently arrested for running a large scale marijuana growing operation in downtown Chicago (google Ryan Vrane, it tells the story). I was charged with 2 felonies, one being a Class X that carried mandatory prison time. To make things worse I had a previous felony conviction for the same offense, so needless to say things were not looking good. I hired Mr. Goldberg to defend me and what he was able to do was nothing short of amazing. I ended up getting the charges drastically reduced from a Class X felony to a Class 2 simple possession charge, for which I was given 2 years probation. To this day I'm still amazed at the outcome of my case, it was truly a miracle. I don't just recommend Mr. Goldberg to anyone facing serious felony charges, I would say you are a fool not to seek his representation. He is without a doubt the best criminal defense attorney in Chicago and has the track record to prove it.

Darryl Goldberg did the impossible for my husband. He enabled us to get a non-expungable felony expunged. He is an outstanding attorney. He took over the case after our initial attorney told my husband there was no hope for his case. He listened to us and agressively, yet respectfully, advocated on his behalf. He is intelligent, professional, and sincere. He gave my husband a second chance. I don't know what more I can say about Mr. Goldberg, but he has my highest recommendation and I wouldn't go to court without him.
