One savvy lawyer!!!!
Joshua Goldberg represented me in my divorce and I hired him to represent me for my car accident. As he proved with my divorce, his negotiation skills are paramount! He got me the settlement I wanted and kept me informed during the entire process. I HIGHLY recommend Joshua Goldberg!

Simply the best
Joshua Goldberg is the epitome of what a lawyer should be. He is always prepared, never caught off guard and does his homework. He was able to negotiate a fair settlement in my case because he was ready for any contingency. When I was ready to give up and throw in the towel, he talked me down and convinced me to stay the course. I am forever grateful to Joshua and the entire family at ARM lawyers. I would refer anyone to them.

Excellent Guidance in a Stressful Time
I contacted Attorney Goldberg when I'd gotten into a car accident at work. Without hesitation, he came to my rescue advising me on how he'd handle my workers' compensation and accident claims. He's so well spoken and easy to understand, which is a very hard to find these days. Not only was he great, but his staff is excellent as well - everyone is so helpful anytime I call. This process is not fun at all, but having such excellent guidance through it all makes it alright.

Tells it like it is
Perhaps the thing that impressed me most about Joshua Goldberg was nothing was "sugar coated". He was very straight forward and told me what to expect each step of the way. Going thru the separation and divorce from start to finish, Joshua kept me informed of each step and what the options were and what the risks were. There were no empty promises made just to keep the client happy which I know sometimes occurs when seeking counsel. Since this was the first time going thru a divorce I had many questions. When calling the office, Joshua Goldberg took the phone call when he was available and if he was unavailable there was a return phone call usually within a few hours. Perhaps the best thing I can say is that I really felt Joshua Goldberg was on my side and knew what battles we should fight and what we should concede during the divorce. Divorce can be very emotional at times for the parties involved and Joshua really helped me keep things in perspective with his straight forward approach. Without a doubt, I would reccomend Joshua Goldberg for one's legal needs.

The worst
This lawyer should not be called a lawyer. He is lazy. A liar and, terrible at his job. I hired him over two years ago for a w/c injury and nothing was done. I couldnt get my medication prescribed by doctors i was let go by employer for failure to submit paper work in relation to my w/c injury and status. Evey time i had a concern he always had an excuse as to why it was taking so long. It took almost a year to get a small check for some of the money owed to me for lost wages. The judge would issue the employer deadlines for things to get done the deadlines would come and go and nothing would happen. I would request for him to take action or notify judge on the situation and he would just give me an excuse stating that we would have to wait until our next hearing. Upon our hearing dates he would say we are going to settle then, do nothing he stated prior to our court date. He would not even try in the courtroom. I asked about getting the employer to compensate me for various doctors fees and travel expenses. He told me that those expenses were not covered and stated "that ship has sailed." which was also false. There was always an excuse. He then told me i could go and get my medication at the pharmacy. Upon going to the pharmacy I found out i had wrong w/c claim number. I the called his office and was given a second w/c claim number which was also wrong. Turns out after two years he didnt have my w/ç claim number. At this point I began to question his ability as an attorney. I asked him for a copy of all my records at which point he waited until our court date then told me if i wanted to change lawyers I had to do it then if not that I could not which was also false. Finally after much stress and research on my behalf and, another failed attempt in court I called his office and made a few request to try and help my case. I got no response. On our following court date he attempted to step down as my lawyer without warning and he started to complain to the judge and the defense attorney, He began to speak kess of me, stating i was being too demanding on him and his staff. Shortly after I retained a new attorney who got me my w/ç claim number my medication and w/c to start paying my lost wages inside of a few weeks. In closing I do not know why I he had such a difficult time with my case and why he stalled and misinformed me so much. After various counciltations with different lawyers I found a lot of the of his information was false. I would not recommend Joshua B Goldberg You would be better off representing yourself.

Response from Joshua Goldberg July 21, 2020
Unfortunately, the information contained in this review is not factually accurate. This particular client was unhappy with the positive results achieved in their case and, as a result, decided to leave a misleading and false review. Client satisfaction is our number one goal and will always be our number one priority.

Most attorneys are lucky to have two of these skills. Josh has all three. Josh Goldberg is a diligent, thorough, and compassionate attorney who always puts his clients first. I have had the pleasure of working beside Josh for two years, and have benefited both from his legal acumen and from witnessing his zealous advocacy for his clients. He is also one of the most ethical attorneys I've ever encountered. If you are looking for an attorney who will listen to you, creates realistic expectations, and has excellent legal skills , look no further. I could not recommend Joshua Goldberg any higher.
