Phil Goldberg
After 3 years of divorce, I had a dispute with my ex regarding the terms of our MOU. Phil was recommended to me by a former client and I couldn't have been more pleased. It was a stressful process for me and one I didn't anticipate, but Phil's knowledge of the law, understanding of the terms, and overall emotional support of me in this situation was paramount. I, too, recommended him to a friend. If you are looking for a thorough, dedicated, insightful lawyer, Phil is your person!

He literally cares about all your needs and shows it. I appreciate him greatly and I know you will too. Mine was just a divorce, but a tough one. He got me through it...

Custody Dispute
I would highly recommend Phil for any parent who is in need of a lawyer for custody cases. He ensured I understood all aspects of my case. He thoroughly reviewed the options and different scenarios we could encounter throughout the process. I am thankful that I was able to hire him for what was a truly unprecedented situation.

Philip is a great lawyer. Very thorough, fair, patient, highly knowledgeable, and very reliable. He truly cared about my case and did everything in my best interests. He provided me with realistic expectations from the start, yet was ready to fight for my rights. I certainly recommend him to anyone looking for a great family attorney!

Prenuptial Agreement
Philip was great! He helped draft and finalize a prenuptial agreement on short notice. He’s very knowledgeable and addressed a lot of my concerns. I highly recommend him if you’re in need of prenuptial or post-nuptial services.

Prenuptial Agreement
Philip Goldberg worked with me on a prenuptial and it was a great experience. I was a bit worried on how it would go just because it is sensitive subject but it went better than I could have hoped. We were both very informed as to the documents we were filling out and why. Also he wanted us both to know of our rights if anything were to happen to the marriage in the future and who would retain what. I personally felt very confident in the "what if's" of our marriage and highly recommend him.

Excellent attorney
I met multiple attorneys before deciding on Phil and I knew before I left his office he was definitely the right choice. Professional, knowledable and extremely responsive, Phil exceeded my expectations on all levels. He was easy to communicate with and always had the upmost integrity. Choosing an attorney is one of the most important decisions one makes when needing representation and I feel fortunate to have met an attorney I can always count on when the time arises.

Highest recommendation
I am a financial services professional, and I have worked with Phil on multiple occasions. When the need arises, Phil refers clients to me for my services, and I refer clients to Phil, both for general legal counsel and for Phil's specialty practice, Family Law. Phil has also provided legal guidance for me, and I can state from my personal experience that he is an exceptional attorney - highly skilled, ethical, responsive, and he is an excellent and compassionate advocate for his clients.

Thank you
Phil Goldberg helped me with an issue with my ex wife 4 years after our payment plan was completed. I needed someone who would stand up for me and be a champion. He, literally, saved me 6 figures and handled things in a calm and professional manner. His knowledge is evident and he treated me as a friend. I'd give him my highest recommendation.

Solid, knowledgeable, compassionate, and trustworthy
Philip Goldberg was everything I needed at a time when my life was at its shakiest point. I hired Philip on a consultation basis during my divorce. My ex-husband and I were using a mediator but I really wanted someone who was looking our for my interested to review our settlement agreement. I couldn't be more happy with the many ways that Philip helped me. He found details in our agreement that seemed perfectly harmless but would have been a nightmare to sort out legally. He edited and made changes to the agreement to ensure my best interests that I will be forever grateful for. He explained everything very clearly and compassionately without sounding the slightest bit condescending. I am so grateful that I found Philip during a very difficult time of my life. It was such a relief to know that I was in such good hands.

Worth hiring
I have been working in different law firms since 2006 and it is very rare to find such an honest attorney. Knowing the in's and out’s of the legal field, I had high expectations for the attorney I choose to hire for myself. Philip will treat your case with so much attention you will feel like you are his only client. His professionalism in court helps the judge understand your side in a very clear way. Going through a divorce is not an easy bridge to cross but it helps to have him fighting for you. I cannot imagine hiring anyone else through such a difficult time. Thank you again Philip!
