Amongst the various interests I have is my lifelong love for Latin Music, Salsa. Latin Jazz. I play conga's and have produced 3 CD's which are available on . Along with my Criminal Law background and Juvenile Law background, I have acquired a fairly comprehensive working knowledge of the music industry, laws and the bs that surrounds it..... You can watch my friend Scheila Gonzales and her fabulous sax solo on TV. she plays regularly with the Zappa Band. I have many clients from the Industry. I am also writing a mystery novel which utilizes many characters that may have resemblance to characters living and dead throughout my career all of which is purely coincidental.

 

Amongst the loves of my life are my wife and my adopted rescue mutt Lucy who we have had since she was 3 months old, check out her picture above.

Immediate Understanding of Legal Problem, Excellent Judgment, Compassionate, Responsive, Reliable, Pragmatic, Excellent Results
Attorney Jack Gold understood my legal problems, and took immediate action to avoid any adverse consequence to me or my family. As a Judicial Officer, Commissioner Gold was extremely courteous to all Lawyers and Litigants who appeared before him. His rulings were well-reasoned, and tailored to produce realistic results and outcomes for each particular case. His presence is missed by both the Bench and Bar. I trust that Jack Gold's instruction, by way of example, will continue to influence the Los Angeles Judiciary in perpetuity.

personable, excellent professional
Mr. Gold helped me through a potential legal situation. He carefully walked me through the whole thing in detail with potential arguements pro and cons. I have never met a attorney like him. I was taken back by his knowledge and logic. I had not yet retained him and through his guidance he counseled me that I did not need to. His honesty, guidance, direction, legal advise was what captured my attention about him. My past experiences with attorneys (divorce/custody) in the past have been "come on in" but pay your way before I speak to you. So to have Mr. Gold counsel me without retaining him as my attorney was incredably kind. In fact he reviewed what I had when he was at home. Yes he was at home! I hate to say this but now I have a new found trust and faith in the legal system thanks to Mr. Gold. He is HONEST, kind, intelligent, straight forward and VERY knowledgable. I would most definately recommend him as an outstanding attorney. (I never hired him but had to write something when it said when did you last hire him)

Review of Jack J. Gold
Jack Gold has shown himself to be the kind of Lawyer who is always trustworthy. He kept us informed at all times and he was responsive to all our questions on a timely basis. To say Jack was knowledgeable when it came to our case is not enough. Jack's sense of timing, knowledge of the law and communication skills saved the day for our family. We put our trust in Jack and He came through for us. We won our case Our son was set free, and we will be forever indebted to the excellent defence Jack Gold put forth on our behalf. We will be forever grateful to Jack for his service to our family.

Jack Gold Review
Jack was an excellent attorney. He always kept us informed about every aspect of our son's case. He explained how juvenile law worked and was always available for questions. He is very well versed in criminal and juvenile law.

THE MAN -
Most attentive, immaginative and activated! His knowledge of the multi-complex court systems in the Los Angeles area is remarkable - yet, with Jack's experience, most understandable. Because of his perserverance, my case was dismissed.
