We found ourselves in a very bad situation with needing a criminal defense attorney for our son, and we had the fortunate circumstance of another attorney calling us and telling us that he had already contacted Rich on our behalf. That was a ray of sunshine for us. We already had scheduled an initial consult with a local attorney for us and had the fortune of meeting with Rich prior to that appt.
We left Rich's office that day feeling like he would work for us and with us for the best possible outcome for our son. The next attorney was rude, arrogant and did not make us feel as comfortable as Rich did. We left that office feeling that it was all about the money. We retained Rich that night and have never regretted that decision.
I feel that Rich is very professional, courteous and easy to speak with. He always called with any new developments in the case and was very prompt at returning our phone calls and emails.
He also has patience in dealing with the family and the multitude of questions that came up. At this time Rich has represented my son for over a year and he continues to finalize the process. Rich has gone out of his way for us, and my whole family is truly grateful to have been referred to him. I suspect that by now you have realized that he gave us the best possible outcome for our son. We are truly grateful to him.
I would highly recommend Rich to anyone who needs an excellent Criminal Defense Attorney.

In May of 2016 I made a terrible choice and was subsequently arrested and charged with a misdemeanor. Very scared and not knowing what to do next I called a trusted friend who in-turn recommended Mr. Richard Goldberg for representation.
I called Mr. Goldberg that same day and we scheduled a consultation for later that week to go over the details of my case and possible options. Needless to say that when I sat down with Richard I could instantly see why he is regarded as one of the best defense attorneys in the area.
He led me through the steps of my case, possible outcomes (he is very honest), and what we could do to secure the best possible outcome. To make a long story short the outcome of my particular case was even better than I could've hoped for and it was directly due Mr. Goldberg's expertise and unwavering professionalism.
I highly, and I mean HIGHLY, recommend Richard Goldberg should you or someone you know find themselves in need of high quality, effective representation. You simply can't find anyone better.

My family hired Richard to represent my brother in a criminal case. I called him on a Sunday morning and just a few hours later he was meeting with my brother at the jail. He represented him at two hearings - both times thoroughly impressed with his work. We felt confident that we were going to have a positive outcome with Richard handling the case. Communication was excellent - a rare find with an attorney...he would readily answer calls or text as well. Unfortunately, my brother passed just a few weeks after hiring Richard. At this point; Richard felt like family. He attended his service and supported us throughout our horrific ordeal. Richard definitely goes above and beyond!! Good people are hard come by these days....without question Richard is one. He is very good at what he does, but is also caring and compassionate.
