Client Reviews
After years of trying to protect my assets from creditors, I was shocked to find out that my assets were unprotected in ways I had never considered. Not only had I placed my assets at risk from my mother's creditors, but I had placed my assets at risk from other family members who were intent on manipulation. When my mother died, I discovered that a family member had changed my mother's estate planning documents. Mr. Goldman and his team were able to explain what went wrong and successfully defended my position in court. During the case, I learned that I could have had much better protection from family and creditors, thus avoiding years of litigation and undue familial stress. When it comes to protecting your assets and your family, I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Goldman and his team. Bill H.
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. In addition, Mr. Goldman can help real estate investors structure trusts to protect their assets from creditors. Michael Starling
