Rating: 10 Lawyer Rating - 10 out of 10
I have known David for over 30 years -- earlier as an entrepreneur and skilled businessman, and later as a great attorney. I have worked with David on several estate planning and asset protection cases including setting up Gun Trusts. He is highly ethical, very knowledgeable, and has been quick to respond when I've contacted him. Clients I have referred to him sing high praises of him as well. I highly recommend contacting David for legal matters.

Gun Trust Creation Goldman created my Gun Trust in 2016. In subsequent years, I've had questions as situations arose, he answered all promptly and satisfactorily. I don't normally work with out of area attorneys, but he was the best that I found in the field. It went off without a hitch.
