  • Andrew Joel Golden

    Robert is a skilled and compassionate advocate who devotes his heart and soul to his clients. I've interacted with him both in cases we've worked together and by watching him in court, and in every situation he has carried himself with the kind of humility and professionalism that has made judges pay close attention to what he says. I endorse him whole-heartedly.
