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.

During this part of Bob’s career, he championed the rights of clients in court, tried numerous jury trials, and pursued appeals to the Supreme Courts of Georgia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania, and the Georgia Court of Appeals. Bob’s broad experience has given him the judgment to counsel clients about their best options under the most difficult of circumstances.

Miss Kitty—Greeter, Office Cat
Abandoned and found in a storm drain at the Griffin Airport Park in September 2005. Bob’s family took her home to join the rest of their other rescued “outside” cats. She decided she did not like competition, being a loner at heart. She tried to cross Hwy 362 but was hit by a passing vehicle. Miss Kitty suffered a broken jaw and pelvis. After her rehabilitation stay at the feline skilled nursing facility, she became the greeter and office cat at Elder Law Practice. Miss Kitty enjoys basking in the afternoon sun, lounging on the furniture, meowing for love and her gourmet meals.
