Happy with the law firm
I would recommend goldman and associates for family law. They put my mind at ease during a very stressful time in my life. They assured me that all would work out just fine and it did.

AMAZING!!
If you are in need of an excellent attorney - look no further! Goldman & Associates is AMAZING!!!! Akiva Goldman and his staff handled my divorce. Going through a divorce was difficult. Emotionally I was struggling and having to cope with the legal issues seemed an insurmountable task. At all times Mr. Goldman and his staff conducted themselves in a professional manner. Everyone was patient and polite and clearly walked me through all the steps in the process. The office promptly responded to every phone call and email. Mr. Goldman and his team worked diligently to prepare the necessary documents and on the day I met Mr. Goldman at court everything went quickly and smoothly. I was grateful for the expertise of Mr. Goldman in helping me put the legal issues behind me. I highly recommend Mr. Goldman and his team.

Fanfan Zheng,Attorney
I hired attorney Fanfan Zheng with the firm Akiva E.Goldman to take care of a family matter beginning last August 2023. I chose him based on glowing references from my friends and I must say I was not disappointed. It was a difficult case because the problems with my wife existed for many years and I had put up with it until finally it became too onerous. I have to highly recommend attorney Fanfan Zheng in the way he handled the case from the beginning: he was prompt, sensitive, easy to get along with, kind and as inquisitive as possible so as to be able to gather and analyze all of the lengthy complex issues. He was then able to apply his knowledge of the law as well as finance to obtain for me a very satisfactory settlement with which I am very happy. He fought hard for me all the way and I have nothing but good and positive things to say about him. Nothing negative. He was honest, never lied to me and his fees were reasonable.I highly recommend him for any Family divorce issues

Looking to get my part of the pension I was supposed to receive.
I'm so sorry that you couldn't help me and advised that I shouldn't proceed with this issue. I was hoping to get something back from that pension. But it was worth a try.
