There are a lot of very good attorneys in Fort Myers. Our attorneys have been practicing law here in Southwest Florida since our doors opened 16 years ago, and prior to that in other firms. We work with great attorneys every day, and we appreciate those that excel in their individual fields of law.
But as you'll find in all types of jobs, whether it's the guy that works on your car or the cashier at the grocery store, some people are better at their job than others.
In the practice of personal injury law, the attorneys at The Goldberg Law Firm have dedicated themselves to helping people who have suffered a serious injury because of someone else's negligence. No one wakes up in the morning expecting that some other driver will run a stop sign and t-bone their car, or rear-end them because they were driving while distracted – but it happens every day.
At times like those, when you don't know where to turn or what to do next, a skilled personal injury attorney can be your best ally. Just as when you select a doctor, you look for someone who specializes in what you need. The same holds true for the practice of law – not all lawyers are good at all things.
When an attorney decides to hang up their shingle, they determine what areas of the law will be the core of their practice. Some may go into family law, helping people with a divorce, child custody or parental visitation issue. Others may decide their skills would best be applied to the practice of business and real estate law, focusing on drafting legal contracts and corporation paperwork.
We do personal injury, and we're proud of our record of success.
By focusing our practice on personal injury law, we have developed decades of in-depth knowledge regarding how a personal injury lawsuit works, and how to be successful at winning substantial financial settlements and jury verdicts for our clients. We wake up every day knowing what we need to do when dealing with huge insurance companies, negotiating aggressively to make sure your legal rights are fully protected, and ensuring that you receive the full compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Our entire team has spent years perfecting their skills in the practice of personal injury law. We aren't distracted by work in other areas of practice, like drafting wills, closing a real estate deal or representing someone in a nasty divorce. Our purpose and our passion are laser-focused, and the results speak for themselves. (You can read what some of our clients think about us here.)
The practice of personal injury law is essentially working to help rebuild someone's life after a tragic, often life-altering accident. In most of our cases, people retain our firm to help them determine who will pay for their extensive medical care, damage to their property and continuing physical rehabilitation needed to treat their injuries. As we mentioned, a serious car crash can happen in an instant, but it can change your life forever. At that moment, you have no idea what to do, or even if you have any legal course of action.
That's when talking to a personal injury attorney at The Goldberg Law Firm should be one of the first phone calls you make.

Don't Go to a Dentist for a Heart Attack
We get calls to our offices daily asking for help with a lot of different legal issues. In fact, about 85% of our business comes from a past client, a friend or neighbor who has recommended our law firm. And we are always available to talk to you about any legal troubles. But the fact is if it pertains to a family law, business law or employment law issues, we refer those types of cases to friends and colleagues in Fort Myers who we trust and recommend, and who we have worked with for nearly 20 years in town.
Personal injury law is a very demanding and constantly evolving area of practice, and we choose to put 100% of our energy and commitment into helping those people who need it.
You wouldn't go to a dentist if you've suffered a heart attack – why go to a divorce lawyer for your crash injuries?
It doesn't cost a thing to call us and get some advice on handling a legal problem. Our founding partner, Scot Goldberg, has lived here his whole life. His father was a prominent personal injury attorney in town before that. Our firm is local, and has the local connections and knowledge our clients need and have come to rely on since our firm's inception.
We always feel comfortable in recommending other good attorneys to folks who need help in an area of the law other than personal injury. But when it comes to suffering a serious injury through no fault of your own, don't go to Google – go to Goldberg.
