A Friend Representing You
Trista was with me during the most difficult period in my life and she provided the calm, compassionate, and tough guidance I needed.

The layer I should have had from the start
I was a difficult client! I was so overwhelmed and felt so defeated. Trista was the calm in the storm. She was there even when I was scared to be there. Her professional demeanor and skillset enabled me to get through the worst time of life. Thanks to her tireless effort my son is now safe and I can relax. I can’t express how grateful I am to her for seeing me through the worst time of my life and doing all she can for the safety of my child. She was the most professional and dedicated person that I have ever dealt with.

Excellent
I never thought I would have the need to hire an attorney to end my marriage, but I did...and when I met with Trista I knew she was the person I needed to guide me through the process. Trista was compassionate, knowledgeable, understanding, and confident. My dissolution included pension funds, retirement accounts, and many unexpected surprises that kept me reeling, but Trista handled every situation with a matter of fact attitude that I could only admire. She took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns, from documentation, to court processes, and DOPOs, to QDROs...she made sure I understood it all. When things were delayed by the other party, Trista handled the issues with tact and the utmost professionalism. I definitely recommend Trista and her staff to help you navigate your particular situation, to ensure you get the best possible settlement.

Trista Was Simply the Best
I hired Trista during a very stressful start-of-a-divorce. After our first meeting, I immediately felt relieved and optimistic. For almost a year (!), Trista counseled and calmed me, culminating in a very fair settlement WITHOUT having to go to the expense of a trial. She helped me keep ALL of my own 401K, and negotiated a great alimony amount. She's wise beyond her years, so don't let her youthful appearance kid you! I have and will recommend Trista for ANY family law issue. Hire Trista, and good luck.

Thankful I hired Trista Portales Goldberg
I never thought I would be in a situation to need to hire a divorce attorney, but life sometimes blindsides you .My divorce got very ugly very fast and Trista was exactly what I needed . It was also very satisfying that my now ex - husband was terrrifed of her , I appreciated her being straight forward and honest , and with me at the time being so emotional, I could just say to her "I need you to be the logical part of brain and think clearly for me , because I just can't " and completly trust she would take care of everything , and do what was best for me . There was alot of court involved in my situation, and even more drama , I could not be more happy with how Trista handled herself in a court room , she is a beast ,extremley organized and has complete control over any situation ,after a long year of court battles ,everything went in my favor and she put me in a better finacial situation than I ever could have thought of post divorce , she was very creative in coming up soulutions to very unique circumstances Trista made all the peices fall together for me , and I could not be more thankful for her .

My Experience with Trista Goldberg
I had a particularly intense, combative divorce situation. Trista Goldberg had to be very patient and very creative in figuring out how to really help me. She spent time figuring out a very detailed parenting plan that could work. To this day we use the custody schedule she created and drew up, which was difficult due to our non-traditional work schedules. As things continued to be combative post divorce, Trista researched parenting coordination and our case was among the first in Hamilton County to use a parenting coordinator. This saved me many thousands of dollars post divorce, and truly helped my children. In addition to going above the norm to figure out how to help my particular case, Trista had a very soothing and encouraging manner in "talking me down from the ledge." I have also been impressed with her understanding of the law. She "gets" what to say in court and how to say it. My divorce was a "Katrina"- not a Category 5 storm but one that has caused enormous damage because it lingered for a long time, pouring down the rain. I have needed an attorney who could stay the course and keep plugging away at solving problems differently and efficiently. Trista had come recommended to me from someone I trust in the legal community. I am glad I trusted that recommendation.

Attorney Review
ATTORNEY GOLDBERG IS A BRILLIANT LEGAL EXPERT! I had a very complicated divorce after an extended separation. My ex-husband wanted alimony, half of my government pension, half of my 401K, the family home, and he didn't want to pay child support. In short, Trista is an exceptionally competent and dynamic litigator. She masterfully orchestrated a legal plan of action, and was the driving force behind the successful outcome of my divorce case. Trista was well prepared and very organized! She handled everything properly, professionally and in a timely manner. She even recommended an action that the judge had never seen done and it was granted in my favor. When it was all said and done, my ex owed me money. Attorney Goldberg entered the courtroom ready for battle, and I was proud that she was MY legal representation! Trista is awesome! So if you're looking for a powerhouse legal counsel, that knows the law and will fight to ensure it works in your favor; Trista Portales Goldberg is the attorney for you.

Top Quality Advice, Top Quality Results
Divorce is never easy; expecially when you have children invloved. Emotions run high and you lose sight of the reason you filed: This marriage was not good for either party involved. You need someone to be your rock... yeah, you may have family and friends to hold your hands through this difficult time, but who will be there for you when you need to navigate the complex legal system... your lawyer. I had the pleasure of working with Trista Portales-Goldberg and her team throughout my ordeal. Her straight forward, compassionate and grounded advice helped me settle my case. In divorce, no one wins... instead, you get a second chance. A second chance to live your life and make the best of the time you have left. With Trista and her team, I was able to start over and make sure it would be as easy as possible when it came to dealing with my ex husband with regards to our son. Thank you Trista for all your hard work!

Impressive Attorney
Trista Goldberg is an impressive attorney and worth every penny of her fees. I found her to be extremely responsive, hard-working, compassionate, honest and intelligent. She respected my perspective throughout the process yet her advice remained professional and objective. Trista was an amazing advocate for me at a time when I needed it most. She truly cared about my case and worked harder for me than any attorney I have ever worked with. Don't be fooled by her youth. She is extremely capable and you'd be fortunate to be represented by her. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone needing a family law attorney.
