    Chuck Goldberg is one of the best Criminal Defense lawyers in the State of California. Over his 40+ year career he has represented clients in high-profile criminal cases and has achieved superior results. He has been listed in the Best Lawyers in America publication for over 25 years, has won numerous awards as a trial attorney, and is well-known and recognized force to be reckoned with. Most importantly, Chuck truly cares about his clients and works diligently to advocate for their best interests.
