  • Jennifer S. Goldman

    Jennifer and I met when we sat for the Texas bar exam together, and I loved her from the moment I met her! She is brilliant, compassionate and thorough, and it is obvious to me that she cares about each of her clients. I regularly refer clients to her, knowing they will be in good hands.
