    Hiring a lawyer is a difficult decision. You could easily go to an office supply store or buy computer software to make a document. However, an experienced estate planning attorney can tell you precisely what needs to be in that document to protect yourself, your family, and your assets. Not to mention help you discover your most pressing concerns and goals, and design a comprehensive plan to help you address every one of them. At Robert M. Goldberg & Associates, we strive to establish long-term relationships with our clients by providing Legal Guidance for a Lifetime.

    goldberg-6684 crop

    Miss Kitty was found as a kitten living in a sewer at Airport Park. The Goldbergs rescued her and welcomed her to live with them and their other furry friends. As the year went by, however, Miss Kitty dreamed of greener grasses on the other side of Williamson Road and ventured to find them. Her journey did not end well, as she was hit by a car and found struggling to return home- with a broken jaw and hip. She braved through surgery and a month of kitty rehab but received unfortunate news that she would forever be an inside cat. Being the trouper she is, she decided to make the best of it and took on the role of office hostess, warmly greeting all who enter.

    At 12 years of age, Miss Kitty enjoys basking in the afternoon sun, lounging on the furniture, meowing for love and her gourmet meals.
