M.G. – Atlanta area Plaintiff’s lawyer
“Goldner has Mach 5 brains, great personal charm and a work ethic that is unmatched by anyone. If how hard you work determines the outcome, he’s never going to be defeated. You have to be passionate and a believer in your case to be an outstanding plaintiff lawyer, and Goldner has found his niche.”
G.B. – Retired Judge, Fulton County, Georgia
“A lot of us view a case from the lens of a lawyer. Goldner can see what will be important to a juror. I admire his integrity, use of humor to reduce contention and ability to deflect egos and make points in the courtroom. If he says something, I can take it at face value. I trust him.”
