Our Attorneys

Meet Steven M. Goldberg.

He knows how to help you.

Sometimes the things we need the most can hurt us. A diagnosis about our health that turns terribly wrong. A drug prescribed to help that harms us instead. Treatment that intends to heal but causes pain and suffering due to negligence. A quality of life tragically disrupted by an avoidable accident. A workplace designed for productive jobs that may cause cancer. Products designed to make life easier but instead jeopardize our safety.

Steven M. Goldberg knows what to do when your hurt needs healing.

Yes, he’s an attorney – one of the top-rated personal injury lawyers in the nation. So, you’ve come to the right place if you’re seeking justice or compensation for the way you’ve been treated. No one is more successful than Steven at righting the wrongs of those harmed by the wrongful conduct of others.

But, Steven is more than an accomplished attorney who’s dedicated to fighting for you. He’s an authority on the intricacies of health and well-being – your health and your well-being – in a time of fast-changing institutional medicine, medical science, treatment, drugs and risks in our turbulent world. He’s your advocate for justice, your clear voice in a noisy world, your scout through a complex system of justice.

More than just a lawyer, Steven Goldberg is a man of parts: family man, father, friend, fighter, medical authority, courtroom super-hero. He knows what to do when your hurt needs healing.
