Jason Goldman, the firm’s principal, started his career as a Brooklyn prosecutor, where he swiftly rose through the ranks by consistently taking to trial the most serious felony offenses. Born out of passion, Mr. Goldman soon began his criminal defense trajectory, moving seamlessly into private practice by leaning on that same trial experience and courtroom instinct to find quick success, securing a string of significant results for his clients.

With his ascent, Mr. Goldman has now transitioned from a talented and touted young trial attorney to one of New York City’s most prominent. Over the last several years, he has been tapped for some of the most significant, high-profile, and meaningful cases in New York. Having tried over 25 cases to verdict, Mr. Goldman’s practice spans every phase of criminal litigation, from pre-arrest investigations, to trials, to a robust sentencing and appellate discipline. Mr. Goldman vigorously defends those who are being prosecuted at all levels of crime, ranging from traditional criminal defense matters such as homicide to complex, white-collar offenses. He has likewise been sought out to advise on and handle select civil matters, lending his litigation skills to areas such as civil rights, employment actions, and plaintiff's work.

In turn, Mr. Goldman's boutique firm has represented corporate executives in finance, real estate, and hospitality, as well as doctors, politicians, lawyers, athletes, celebrities, and individuals from all walks of life who find themselves in life-altering situations. Given his prosecutorial background, Mr. Goldman has also conducted and overseen an array of complex investigations on behalf of individuals and companies alike.

Mr. Goldman is a mindful advocate who realizes that a successful defense depends not only on what tactics are employed within the courtroom but also what prudent measures are taken outside of it.

Similarly, on matters that capture the public’s attention, Mr. Goldman taps into his network of trustworthy journalists, public relations executives, crisis management specialists, and influential criminal justice advocates to engage the media strategically.
