MAKING OUR COMMUNITIES SAFER BY HOLDING PEOPLE AND COMPANIES ACCOUNTABLE ONE CASE AT A TIME.

In my profile you can read what my clients have to say about me. I have provided information below about my qualifications, education and experience, and case philosophy and  approach. 

 

I believe that selecting the right lawyer for your case can make all the difference in whether you win and how much you actually recover. For that reason my firm is involved with all aspects of your case including payment of your medical bills and obtaining your lost wages.  Over the past two decades I have also become a trusted attorney to many injured police officers including members of the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association, MassCop, and members of numerous police departments. 

 

I also believe that if you have been injured because of someone else's fault, you are entitled to more than just full compensation; you are entitled to personal representation. I pride myself on examining your specific situation to ensure that the approach I take accomplishes your individual goals. Equally important, I keep clients updated on their cases and am personally available to speak with clients when they need me. 

 

I am a 1984 graduate of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ and a 1987 graduate of Suffolk Law School in Boston.  I have dedicated my law practice to personal injury law. With more than 25 years of personal injury claim and courtroom experience, I bring the varied skills that are necessary to succeed whether negotiating with insurance companies or lawyers, or presenting your case to a judge or jury, and I am also experienced in mediation and arbitration. For the second year I am the Chair of the Massachusetts Bar Association's (MBA) "Sole Practitioner & Small Firm Section."  I am an active voting member on the Board of Governors of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys (MATA) and in the Massachusetts Bar Association's House of Delegates.   I am also a member of the national trial association, the American Association of Justice (AAJ), formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA).  In 2013, Thomson Reuters named me one of Boston's "Super Lawyers" in Personal Injury Law, as was published in Boston Magazine.

 

On a personal note, I have been married for 26 years and have two children, one graduating college and one entering college.   I love music and concerts, and am an amateur photographer, avid skier and  recreational golfer. I have also earned several black belts in karate and am a former Sensei. 

 

I would welcome the opportunity to discuss your situation and potential case with you, and answer any questions that you have.

Highly competent and experienced
Scott Goldberg represented me in a ride share vehicle case. Scott is a highly competent and professional attorney. He is highly experienced in vehicle-related cases. He is active in the local Massachusetts public policy regarding trial procedure. Scott's staff was always professional, persistent, and very organized when it came to dates, documents, and follow-ups. I always felt like Scott prioritized my interests before his own. He explained the case well and described decision tradeoffs. He took the time to educate me when things were unclear. Scott Goldberg's representation comes with his many years of experience and that differentiates his services from that of a typical large personal injury firm.

Scott and his team are amazing, I wouldn't trust anyone else!
I was in a terrible car accident in January, 2023 and I was badly injured. I know Scott primarily as a friend of our very good friends, and he was so supportive after my accident. He explained that I did indeed have a case (I didn't think I did) and how it would work if we made a claim. He took his time to explain to me a lot about how my car insurance works, the parts of my policy, and how we could file despite having been in a rental car in another state when the accident occurred. He not only 'held my hand' all the way through the case, explaining as we went what was happening, but prevailed and won in a matter of months! He always cared most about how my recovery was going and how I was feeling, and I felt like he wanted to win for me as a person. His team is excellent, responsive, and extremely knowledgeable about personal injury law, setting and executing strategies until they win. I can't say enough great things about Scott and I would never go to a different lawyer than him for a case he covers. Thank you Scott and Team!!

Attorney Goldberg is an excellent attorney
I am glad that I found Attorney Goldberg to represent me after a major not at fault car crash 7 years ago. The case just closed recently. It has long delay due to Covid-19. He did an excellent job in presenting my case, working with the insurance companies, preparing me for deposition. He and his assistant Scott Bokun are always respond to my questions, emails, phone calls in a timely manner for 7 long years. I couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome. I strongly recommend Attorney Goldberg for legal representation! I appreciate his legal advices and patience.

Excellent representation in bike injury case!
I was t-boned by a SUV while riding my bike a few years back. Originally i tried to go alone and deal with the insurance company by myself - there were multiple parties and insurance companies involved and i got the run around. Because of a friends recommendation, I went to Scott to represent my case. He did an excellent job in presenting my case, working with the insurance companies, preparing me for a hearing - i couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome. I wholeheartedly recommend Attorney Goldberg for legal representation! Ashwin

Turned a traumatic event into a stress free experience.
After being struck by a car and ending up with thousands in medical fees, Scott took all the fuss out of the situation and really went to bat for me against the insurance company. I got a full settlement with nearly no work needed on my end. Being run over and waking up to it all my first thought was, how am I going to pay for all of this? Well Scott laid it all out for me and went over all the detail of what to expect and really put my fears at ease. After that it was smooth sailing and almost zero stress for my part. In the off chance something like this ever happens ago Scott's law office will be the first place I call.

Personal injury settlement after being struck by car
After a hit and run incident while I was biking, I and my wife wanted to explore our options in terms of compensation. Since my injuries were significant and negatively impacted both me and my wife who needed to look after me, we wanted to work with a lawyer whom we could trust. By word of mouth, we were directed to Scott. We first consulted him, and later decided to hire him since he left a good impression. In short time, he was able to get us the compensation from the insurance company. He was also kind enough to reduce his fees under the circumstances. Apart from his professional capabilities, he seems friendly and pleasant to work with.

Scott changed my life. No exaggeration.
Without exaggeration, Scott changed my life. His calm and considered manner, matched with his superb knowledge, allowed me to survive the emotional and financial impact of a very serious injury. He was a constant source of reassurance from start to finish. I simply would not have reached the point I am now at without his experience and care. My injury could easily have ruined my life, but instead I'm now in a strong position to rebuild and move on. Thank you Scott.

Frightening car crash
Attorney Goldberg represented me in a car crash. I was hit by a driver under the influence of drugs who totaled my vehicle with my daughter in the car. I was injured and scared about this unexplained almost deadly event. Attorney Goldberg took my case with care, concern and considerable knowledge to take on the insurance companies . He and his staff always kept me well informed of the status of the case and worked tirelessly to help me pay all bills incurred. He also assisted me when I had any questions and explained my case thoroughly at all times. I had to go to criminal court to testify against the driver who hit me and Attorney Goldberg counseled me on how to proceed in this matter. I am grateful that he helped me through this difficult process and obtained a favorable outcome to a horrific situation . It is without hesitation that I recommend Attorney Goldberg as a personal injury lawyer!

Outstanding attorney
Since you are reading this review, I assume you have been injured in an accident and I empathize with you. The bills accumulate quickly and the insurance companies are only interested in their financial interests; therefore I encourage you to hire Scott Goldberg. I was hit by a car, as a pedestrian, five years ago. A debilitating back injury forced me to retire early from my job as a Special Agent with the U. S. Government . The insurance company was uncooperative and unwilling to make an appropriate financial settlement until Scott Goldberg filed a lawsuit. Scott Goldberg ran circles around the insurance company lawyers. Scott was two steps ahead of them at every juncture and put together such a strong case that the insurance company capitulated. We were able to reach an out of court settlement that I am very happy with.

Exceptional Legal Counsel
After my car accident, I wasn’t sure where to turn for legal advice on my personal injuries. I contacted several attorney’s in and around Boston, many from larger firms. It was a very trying time. After meeting and speaking with Scott about my case, I knew he was the right person to help me. He was very thorough, supportive and always available to answer my many questions. I would totally recommend Scott to family, friends and anyone in need of exceptional legal counsel!

Amazing attorney
I worked with Scott for almost five years. My case was long and at times frustrating because I wanted it to be settled. However, Scott guided me through the process every step of the way. He ALWAYS returned either my phone call or email in a timely manner. Scott is a true professional. I truly felt that it was a partnership rather then me floating on an island by myself. If you need a personal injury attorney I would not hesitate to get a hold of Scott. He along with his team will work diligently and aggressively to get the very best result for you. EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unusual case
Attorney Goldberg was very responsive and effective in my unusual case, which was about being hit by an SUV while I was on an electric cart at the market parking lot. It took a long time, but he got me a nice settlement , and worked very hard to get it. I recommend him and his often enthusiastically.

A very humbled and appreciative police officer
I had the pleasure of being referred to Scott Goldberg after I expressed my displeasure with another attorney to my supervisor he suggested attorney Goldberg and it proved to be a very different experience, I found attorney Goldberg to be a much needed change from my previous lawyer. Goldberg was very confident when I explained the details of my uninsured motorist claim that occurred while I was operating a Dept cruiser and he was transparent throughout the process and kept me informed. He was able to secure the maximum payout for my case and I am very grateful and would refer any friend family or fellow officer in the future

Attorney Scott Goldberg came through for me after a car accident just when I had given up hope.
I was delighted when Scott took my case after a car accident. He took charge of my complicated medical bills and encouraged me to seek much needed physical therapy even though I was having trouble paying for it. He persisted and kept me informed throughout the process. I was more than thrilled with his assistance, professionalism, patience and reassuring attitude. He truly "goes the extra mile", and I am thankful that his representation reflected my best interests at all times.

Best Lawyer!
Scott has been working with me on a car accident case that lasted for 5 years. He has been very professional and knowledgeable in every facet of the case. Also, he is extremely honest and upfront about the expenses, risks and success of the case. I would describe Scott as a lawyer with integrity, compassion and professionalism. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal services.

First let me have a sigh of relief. Scott had me comfortable from the first meeting.
I was involved in a car accident that was 100% on the other driver. Aside from that fact, Scott is extremely professional, pays intense attention to every detail, and a true human that make's you feel comfortable being yourself in a stressful time. Scott and I had worked together onext my case for an extended time and not once did I feel disconnected or out of the loop in every step. When I had doctor's appointment for the accident, he was more than willing to attend in the utmost humble way. The typical sterotype for lawyers does not envelop Scott. I hope to never be in a situation that brought me to Scott Goldberg again, but if it were to happen again, Scott would be my first call. Thank you Mr. Goldberg, my family and I thank you!

Scott did excellent work on my split and fall case. He made the whole experience easy and painless. He was easy to talk to, kept me well informed of my options, was clear about his approach and strategy, was available when needed, and listened to my concerns and addressed them. I really appreciated having him working on my case.
