STEVEN M. GOLDBERG NAMED 2020 BEST LAWYERS "LAWYER OF THE YEAR"
Goldberg Legal Co., LPA attorney Steven M. Goldberg was recently recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2020 "Lawyer of the Year" for Product Liability Litigation - Plaintiffs in the Cleveland area.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the "Lawyer of the Year," making this accolade particularly significant. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessments.
Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
In addition to the "Lawyer of the Year" award, Steven M. Goldberg was also listed in the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the following practice areas: Medical Malpractice Law -- Plaintiffs and Product Liability - Plaintiffs.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
