  • Julie Ann Goldberg

    Leah is an amazing attorney. We have worked together on many cases where there was a cross over issue between immigration and criminal. She is extremely thorough and conscientious in solving client matters and finishing cases with a positive result.. Leah will go that extra mile to help a client or finish a case where other attorney's might not.
