About me

Jennifer Goldman is an experienced criminal defense attorney who concentrates on representing people who have been accused of DUI, domestic violence and other criminal offenses. Jennifer's tireless and staunch advocacy has yielded very successful results for her clients such as acquittals, dismissals, reductions of charges, and having DMV suspensions and/or revocations set aside. There is an alternative to pleading guilty. You should always have that option.
