Excellent in employment issues
I first consulted with Mr. Goldberg regarding a harassment/discrimination situation I was in. His advice was rock solid and he guided me through every step, as overwhelmed and confused as I felt, he made everything make sense to me and helped me find vindication in the end.

Exceptional Service!
I found myself in need of legal assistance to resolve an employment issue. Jeffrey did a truly outstanding job for me. He was supportive, patient, and extremely responsive (including on weekends, evenings, while he was traveling) Jeffrey took the time to listen to my tale of woe, asked good questions, and gave me clear, frank guidance regarding my options. I unreservedly recommend Jeffrey.

Prospective Client
I found myself needing expert guidance on how to handle a new employment situation, i.e. being laid off with severance package. The consultation was very thorough, and with the assistance and knowledge of Attorney Goldberg, I understood my rights as an employee, and the next steps to take to protect my family from financial hardship. Atty Goldberg was patient, kind, and informative during a very stressful and confusing time in my life. Would highly recommend.

Severance Package Review
Mr. Goldberg was extremely thorough in reviewing my severance package. He explained in detail the companies position on their offer and advised me based on the labor laws according to the state where my former employer is headquartered. He knows labor law well and as a result was able to give practical advice so as not to waste time. Mr. Goldberg has excellent interpersonal skills and was a pleasure to visit. I've dealt with many good lawyers in my career but there is a difference between a good lawyer and a great lawyer and Mr. Goldberg is one of the best.

Very professional, always kept me informed
I needed accurate advice concerning my situation after being let go by my employer. It was unexpected, an left me feeling vulnerable and confused. A friend had recommended Jeff Goldberg. I went to see him for a consultation and he put my mind at ease by outlining my options and possible courses of action. He was factual and able to explain the legal implications in a way that I could understand. I knew I had come to the right place. As a business professional, my standards have always been high when seeking out advice. Jeff and his staff were on top of every step in the process; personable, respectful, and thorough. I highly recommend Jeff Goldberg to anyone in need of advice or legal representation.

Initial Consult
Mr. Goldbberg agreed to do an initial evaluation regarding an employment case. His legal aid was very clear regarding fees and that alone was valued. My situation was presented and after about 15 minutes he told me that he wanted to make suggestions and that he would not charge me the agreed to fee. This should in no way be interpreted that he was not interested; it is that he offered advice that was to my benefit. He listened intently and understood my situation well and felt compassion. Both my fiance' and myself left with an unequivocal regard for both the competency and ethics of Mr. Goldberg and recommend him without hesitation.

Best $200 I ever spent!
I recently consulted with Mr. Goldberg and couldn't be happier with the experience. He was professional, thorough, prepared, clear and very detailed. He took the time to really listen and to make sure that he had all of the relevant information. In making his strategic recommendations, he also kept our budget in mind and made suggestions that I could enact on my own, without further legal fees. He clearly had our best interests at heart, and was not trying to get us to hire him for unnecessary services. Mr. Goldberg suggested that I write a letter to the company with whom we were having a dispute over a $7000 fee. He was very clear about the exact points to make in the letter, and he also made sure that he had answered all of my questions before ending the consultation. I had spoken with other attorneys prior to finding Mr. Goldberg, and the difference in working with Mr. Goldberg was stunning. The fact that he is specialized in and only practices employment law was abundantly clear. He had very specific suggestions, and clearly new every relevant detail of the applicable laws. As a result of the suggestions from that one conversation with Mr. Goldberg, we were able to convince the company to drop the $7000 fee. Thank you, Mr. Goldberg!

The best lawyer I have ever done business with!
Mr. Goldberg consulted with me regarding my discrimination case against my former employer. The advice he gave me helped me to be able to reach a settlement. Then when I got the documents he went over them with me, explaining line by line in English exactly what it was saying. The most special part is, as I suffer from CFS and found the drive to his office daunting, Sylvia arranged it so that we could do this all by telephone. Amazing! Both she and Rose are wonderful and professional. If my case had made it to court I had already decided that Mr. Goldberg was the lawyer for me!

Very Happy Clients!!
“Mr. Goldberg represented me in my discrimination and wrongful termination case against my former employer and did an excellent job. My wife and I are very religious people and we placed our faith in our attorney, Jeff Goldberg. He delivered with excellent results. He and his staff, Rose and Sylvia, were the best you could ever hope for. They were exceptional in their courtesy and professionalism. Mr. Goldberg was always there for us and answered all of our questions and gave us the time and expertise our case deserved. He also understood the emotional impact of losing a job had on us. He is an excellent attorney who was willing to fight against a large corporation and large law firm to protect my rights. Mr. Goldberg is very detailed, articulate and is the lawyer you want to have fighting for your rights against a company and its lawyers. He truly is a Board Certified Employment law expert. We are fortunate and blessed to have had Jeff Goldberg as our attorney and we would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a labor and employment attorney.”

Knowledgeable, Professional and Courteous!
I am very pleased with the results of my consultation with Mr. Goldberg. He was very knowledgeable and tremendously helpful. In conjunction with all that, he treated me with patience, taking the time to listen to what I had to say. He also showed respect by taking the time to answer all my questions. Very impressed!

Sexual harassment
Mr. Goldberg was extremely helpful. It was easy to discuss sensitive information with him. He was knowledgable and provided me with a game plan to handle my workplace issues appropriately.

Termination for use of FMLA
Mr. Goldberg was incredibly attentive to my issue and concerns. He listened and asked questions to help keep me focused on the legal issues and not emotional troubles. He gave great advice and alternatives for action. I used his advise and presented my case to my employer with supporting documentation (diplomatically and non-confrontationally). I am satisfied with the outcome. I recognize this situation could have had a unfavorable outcome or a very long, costly, and consuming legal battle attached to it had I not sought Mr. Goldberg's help and taken his advice.. Thank you Mr. Goldberg!
