No regrets about my choice of legal representation.
Even though my legal problem was outside Mr. Goldsmith's normal area of expertise he still took on my case, brought in excellent outside counsel and with the incredible help of his assistant, waded through very complex Medicare, Social Security and other bureacracies that would have sent me to the funny farm. It took a lot of time (thru no fault of his) but we got there and I can finally put the incident behind me.

Professional and Competant, with a Heart...a Rarity.
I've enjoyed the services of Atty Anthony Goldsmith for nearly a decade. Not only does he provide insightful courses of action in which to take, he's fully aware of all existing laws in the area of one's need. He's, no doubt, one of the best Civil Rights and Disability Rights attorneys in the state of California, if not the nation. Of the thousands of professionals I've met in a handful of careers that I've had, my only wish is that they all would have had his competence, his skill level, and his positive moral compass. I would recommend his legal services to anyone who has been 'wronged' in any situation.

I have personally known as well as having been represented by Mr. Goldsmith for many years. The passion for justice, fairness and access is lived every day by Mr. Goldsmith. This transfers to his representation of person's with disAbility and those who have been unjusty discriminated against in the courtroom. Mr. Goldsmith's character and dedication to the practice of law is of the highesat calibre. Best of all, Mr. Goldsmith's heart is invested in his clients.
