Terry D. Goldberg was featured in Suburban Life Magazine, which highlighted his successes
and various steps he took to become an accomplished lawyer. As a student,
he attended Northeast High School and moved on to enroll at Temple University.
Following his undergraduate studies, Attorney Goldberg attended the University
of Tennessee School of Law where he earned his Juris Doctorate. Shortly
after completing his law degree, he joined a firm that focused its practice
on personal injury related cases.
After dedicating 15 years of his practice to the firm, Attorney Goldberg
decided it was time to found his own firm, Terry D. Goldberg & Associates.
Not too long after, Attorney Goldberg chose to expand his practice by
joining forces with Richard T. Kupersmith, James C. Haggerty, and Charles
J. Schleifer to form Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C.
In the interview with Suburban Life Magazine, Attorney Goldberg stated
that each member of the newly formed legal team brought a variety of skills
to the new firm.
As of now, the team is made up of roughly 25 lawyers and 75 staff members
who occupy a 4,500 square foot area. When the firm expands, as they expect
to do in the near future, Attorney Goldberg hopes that his team will occupy
a space larger than 7,500 while increasing the number of attorneys practicing
at the firm by about 50 percent.
The Focus of His Practice
Because Attorney Goldberg is dedicated to protecting the rights of his
clients, he has helped secure positive legal outcomes for individuals
facing situations involving the following:
As a dedicated personal injury lawyer, Attorney Goldberg maintains a busy
schedule to improve his practice and maintain a wide range of skills that
can benefit the lives of his clients. To do so, he has secured memberships
in various associations, including the Philadelphia Bar Association, Bucks
County Bar Association, Philadelphia Trial Lawyers, and the Pennsylvania
Association of Justice.
Throughout the interview, Attorney Goldberg’s devotion to his clients
is highlighted in a series of comments. He states, "I spend nights,
weekends, to make sure I'm the most prepared person in the courtroom."
He continues, "I feel that proper preparation prevents poor performance."
From the beginning, his commitment to his clients, his diligent worth
ethic, and his ceaseless fight to achieve positive outcomes has served
him and his clients well.
When it comes to the future of his clients, Attorney Goldberg sees it as
his goal to ensure their futures are safeguarded. He states, “"I
have a passion to make sure my clients' rights are protected. I have
hundreds of cases, but they only have one. I want to make sure every case
is the most important to me at that time, because for every client, it
is the most important case." His client-based approach has allowed
him to treat his clients as priorities from the day their cases open to
the day their cases close.
His Passion for Sports Fuels His Practice as a Lawyer
Although Attorney Goldberg spends the majority of his time focusing on
his clients and their needs, he also makes time to accommodate his love
of baseball. In fact, Attorney Goldberg played as the starting shortstop
for the Maccabi USA Fast-Pitch Softball Team. During that time, he competed
in various areas, including Mexico, Canada, Venezuela, Israel, Argentina,
and the United States. In 2009 and 2007, Attorney Goldberg served as the
head coach for the Maccabiah Games in Israel and the Pan Am Games in Argentina.
While on the surface it may not seem as though sports and law correlate,
Attorney Goldberg begs to differ. He states that these two very different
fields actually relate more than people may think. While attending Temple
University, he was asked to write a paper that identified correlations
between sports and law. Using baseball as his focus throughout the essay,
Attorney Goldberg was able to make correlations between spectators and
jurors, and umpires and judges. Additionally, he said, "I like to
win—I always have. I wasn't best guy out there [on the baseball
field], I can tell you, nobody worked harder, and I feel like I do that
in my practice, too." Of course, Attorney Goldberg carries this mentality
into his office and into the courtroom each day to gain successful outcomes
for his clients.
