As the principal attorney at The Goldberg Legal Group, Mr. David Goldberg brings over 13 years of experience as a practicing attorney to your case. He is both aggressive and detail oriented in all areas of family and divorce law in Orange County. Much of his early years was spent working as a personal injury lawyer, where he gained extensive experience representing those who need insurance defense or were pursuing civil litigation. This experience got him interested in family law.

Family law and divorce also brought with it a broader appeal for David Goldberg. Because it covers a range of issues, it allows him to apply other areas of law, including some which were the focus of his legal education, like property, real estate, and tax law. In addition, family law allows David to work with contract law through the issues of child custody, child support, spousal support, attorney fees, breach of fiduciary duty, law and motion, discovery, mediation, and settlement negotiations.

As a family law attorney, Mr. Goldberg works as an Irvine divorce attorney handling large asset cases where the parties involved have complicated marital estates and/or face complex business issues. His diverse legal background with experience in many areas as already outlined is an advantage to his clients because of the additional insight it gives him, especially in matters that are heavily contested where much is at stake.

David Goldberg’ s legal education includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of California at Riverside and a Juris Doctorate from the University of San Diego School of Law. After graduation, he was permitted to practice law before both the California State Supreme Court and the United States District Court for the Central District of California. Currently, he is a member of the Orange County Bar Association, the Family Law Section of the Orange County Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the American Bar Association Family Law Section, the Orange County Jewish Bar Association, and the State Bar of California.
