Douglas G. Goldberg, Esq.

Douglas G. Goldberg
5 Star Reviews

“I have found Doug Goldberg over the last 15 years to be right at the height of his profession - estate planning. Doug's advice to my family over how to handle our estate has been creative, complete and comforting as we can breathe easier once we know that he has designed our plan carefully, exactly as we wanted it. I continue to refer him to any and all who need such services.”

"I came to Doug when I was 8 months pregnant and needed some advice on what would happen to my baby if something were to happen to me. I was and still am a single mother so that is of high importance to me and my family. Doug was so warm and accepting of me and my family and my situation. He was able to help design my plan and I have the confidence that my child will be taken care of in the event of my death. He spent a significant amount of time getting to know me and my situation. Awesome man!"
