Elaine is a native Floridian, born and raised in the Tampa Bay Area. She has over 25 years of experience in the legal profession. What sets Elaine apart from other lawyers is her love of the law. She has a proven track record and is a self-motivated and driven competent litigator who wins for the client with compassionate and accurate representation.

Elaine was a paralegal for about 4 years before she decided to put herself through law school. That experience has given her the passion and confidence in her chosen career.

After practicing successfully as a sole practitioner and owner of her own law firm for over 25 years in the Tampa Bay area, her joining our firm makes her a valuable asset to the firm. Now she doesn't worry about the business side of running a law firm which frees her up to devote 100% of her time to attend to the clients and their needs, putting them first and foremost.

Elaine was the guardian for her parents and understands as a guardian and a lawyer how important the guardianship of a person is, and what it takes to do a great job.

Elaine is happily married and enjoys spending time with her spouse and their four-legged fur baby. She is an avid sports buff enjoying baseball, football and basketball and easily could have been a sports announcer with the knowledge she has about sports. Elaine loves sports and in particular baseball and the Tampa Bay Rays. She attended at least 50 games a year before the pandemic hit. Elaine also loves walking the dog and taking walks on the beach. She plays golf when she is able and also enjoys music.

Elaine's clients credit her with incredible personal attention and a "Can Do" spirit with a full grasp of the ins and outs of the law. She truly is a gifted lawyer who puts the client first.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently..." Michael Starling
★★★★★
"I've had Mr. Goldman do my entire estate planning as well as my gun trust. I highly recommend him and his firm. If you're planning a gun trust, trust no one else Mr. Goldman is one of if not the best versed on this topic." Howard
★★★★★
“Great service is an understatement. We bought several properties that Mr. Goldman handled for his clients. The communication and explanation of everything was terrific. I would definitely recommend him for all of your real estate needs.” Kassandra

“After struggling with 2 probate cases prior to hiring attorney Goldman I was extremely apprehensive during the hiring phase. Not only did Attorney Goldman assure me they could take care of this his office was wonderful. Jennifer was assigned to my case and she was wonderful and were able to guide another probate case I had saving me additional time and frustration. Highly recommend this office.” Debbie
