In case I have not said it enough- THANK YOU SO MUCH for everything. This was one of the craziest things I have ever experienced in my life, and I genuinely appreciate the care, attention and thought you put into handling my case. From the moment we started working together, I felt confident that, wherever this crazy journey took me, it would turn out okay in the end.

While I hope I don’t have a need to utilize your services again, I will always keep you guys in mind, and hope if our paths do cross again, it is in a positive way. 🙂

Thank you again for everything!

UNSOLICITED, via LINDSAY

“Entering into legal work can be daunting and intimidating. Especially when it involves very personal aspects of your live. However, my work with C.A. Goldberg was not scary at all. They were open, understanding, and communicative throughout the process. They were able to provide information and the legal guidance I needed to be able to do my job securely.”

DOCTOR, MALE

I was harassed and stalked for six months by seemingly anonymous text messages and did not know where to turn for help, or whether help even existed for a situation like this.  I felt alone and helpless.  Once I found Carrie’s firm and worked with Lindsay Lieberman I learned that these situations are all-too common.  Lindsay explained that misconduct like this is illegal and she could take steps to stop it — which she did.  I am deeply grateful for all she did for me and for putting me at ease through the process.

“I was referred to C.A. Goldberg to help me with harassment I was facing. The team was professional and responsive, and it was so helpful to know someone was on my side and had the tools to assist.”

WOMEN’S HEALTH PROVIDER

I came to C.A. Goldberg in the summer of 2018. I had been sexually assaulted a year prior, and while I didn’t really understand the legal process or what my options were, I was so angry about what had happened to me I knew I had to do something.

It was so empowering to suddenly have a team of highly capable, driven, brilliant lawyers advocating for me. They erased any doubt in my mind about whether I was doing the right thing, and answered all of my questions clearly and thoroughly during every stage (and I had a lot of questions). They are compassionate, tenacious, and extremely knowledgeable about this area of law and the best approach to take for each situation.

Pursuing legal recourse may be daunting, but it is so rewarding to force someone to take accountability for their actions. It has given me a renewed sense of strength, dignity, and power that I felt deprived of after the assault. There are no words to describe how grateful I am for Carrie and her team.

I have had a wonderful experience being represented by C.A. Goldberg. I was terrified by my situation and the thoughtfulness and expertise were very comforting at my time of crisis. They were able to resolve the situation through diligent hard work.

During the process, they were available and never dropped the ball. The peace of mind that I received was priceless. I was able to resume my life. I’m very grateful to the entire staff.

MALE, 50s, VICTIM OF BLACKMAIL

I contacted this firm because an ex-partner had threatened to continue his control and abuse through online revenge. I had no idea that this was considered sexual assault. I had contacted my family attorney, and she could not help me but gave me referrals to more aggressive family/divorce attorneys. I called three other attorneys who either did not get back to me or did not know what to do. Literally, no clue, no mention of a TRO. By the time, I found Carrie Goldberg’s firm, I was suffering from volatile threats and harassment that included threats to my children, family, friends, and colleagues.

There is no good way to say “thank you” for what Adam Massey has done for me – my emotional wellness, my physical safety. He did whatever it took to stop the abuse as fast as he could. Often it felt like his goal was about how to keep me together while also fighting my cause. When I was incapable of fighting, he did it. When I was ready to do the fighting, he cheered me on and stayed close. Through his support and astute legal action, I was able to navigate my fear with my agency. Adam’s legal advising and knowledge are informed by his deep convictions about survivor advocacy and victim care. He is as intellectual as he is strategic; and, most importantly, he is a passionate good person. I am grateful for my life every day and for what he did to keep me safe.

FEMALE, EDUCATOR, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SURVIVOR

The team at C.A. Goldberg PLLC delivered exactly as promised. Not only were they able to execute on a sensitive social media concern of mine, but they also delivered professional intake and case management services.

They combined the best of cybersecurity and legal services available for the new world of digital security. I highly recommend the firm.

MALE, 40s, CEO, EXTORTION VICTIM

I graduated college still pretty much thinking ‘social media’ was…social. Then I landed a TV role and found that there really are some nasty people online just looking to take advantage of you. After being defrauded out of money and subjected to extortion threats, I was fortunate to be referred to C.A. Goldberg. PLLC.

They quickly and effectively helped resolve my problem. Adam was responsive and really helpful in explaining what was going on and what my options were. I would definitely recommend them to anyone else with problems like this.

MALE, 20s, ACTOR, EXTORTION VICTIM

I had a million questions and few answers when I was being harassed. I hired the wrong law firm twice before I found C.A. Goldberg. Carrie has been victimized herself, and her firm brought my harasser to the attention of the FBI within several weeks while the police had been at a standstill for months.

They really do work f*cking fast and they care so much about their clients’ well-being.

FEMALE, RESTAURANT WORKER, 20s, STALKING VICTIM

I am writing to thank and commend C.A. Goldberg and my lead attorney Lindsay Lieberman on the great service performed.

A couple years ago I entered a relationship with a woman who slowly became very abusive toward me. Via constant shaming, blackmail threats, physical hitting and extortion of funds she made my life intolerable for a year. But even after I developed the backbone to break up with her, the abuse did not end. New friends of mine, post-breakup, were contacted by someone on my ex’s behalf, saying why they should avoid me. It was then that I found my computer was riddled with spyware – spyware sitting on my computer for a year and monitoring all of my emails. This is where C.A. Goldberg stepped in.

A male friend had an excellent experience with the firm and recommended I contact them. C.A. Goldberg discovered data I would never have been able to find on my own and was able to develop a strong case against my ex, some of which could have resulted in jail time. I followed the firm’s recommended course of action and we neutralized this harasser.

I cannot recommend C.A. Goldberg or its kind staff enough.

PS. To anyone going through this kind of experience, my two pieces of advice are to contact the firm ASAP and never, ever delete your emails. These emails can make your case. Good luck!

MALE, 30s, FINANCE PROFESSIONAL

C.A. Goldberg firm is absolutely amazing. I walked in there completely nervous and scared because I was being bullied and never thought I would have to take legal action. EVERYONE was nothing but warm, patient, professional and above all, nonjudgmental. They understood my situation and were extremely helpful and thorough as I asked and called them a million times throughout the process.

I was beyond pleased with their work and the commitment they made to me to help me through my legal matters.

C.A. Goldberg gave me my life back and I recommend anyone that is going through a tough situation.

FEMALE, 20s, VICTIM OF INTIMATE PARTNER HARASSMENT

C.A. Goldberg, PLLC was instrumental throughout the entirety of my case.

Not only did they successfully battle an internet posting to be taken down, but they also helped me receive a 5-year order of protection against my ex. I will forever be grateful for their services.

FEMALE, 20s, VICTIM OF INTIMATE PARTNER HARASSMENT

C.A. Goldberg has an amazing team that truly cares about their clients. I was only 19 years old when my ex-boyfriend distributed nude images of me to his friends and threatened to put these images on revenge porn websites. At the time, I had never even heard of the term “revenge porn” and felt terrified, helpless, and objectified. They understood my situation and made me feel like I was no longer stuck in the dark, anxiety-ridden place I had been in for so long.

They were kind, patient, and helped me to find the strength to fight back and finally go to my university to receive protection and justice. Carrie is a true innovator and has successfully ensured that people like myself have a voice and are protected against predators who feel that they can degrade another by using their body as a weapon. Everyone was on my side throughout the entire process. I am grateful for their services!

FEMALE, 20s, VICTIM OF NON-CONSENUAL PORNOGRAPHY

Carrie and her associates treated me warmly and handled my situation delicately and professionally. They understood not just my legal situation, but also the broader circumstances I faced. Because of this, they were able to provide a wide spectrum of advice, not just their legal opinion. I felt that, after meeting with Carrie, I not only knew my options, but also understood my situation better than I did beforehand.

MALE, 30s, VICTIM OF DEFAMATION

The attorneys who worked on my case were also extremely professional and responsive and sent constant updates on my case so I knew that I was in good hands.

If anything else comes up, I’ll contact C.A. Goldberg again. I was very pleased with the work completed and how quickly it was completed.

I will never forget the morning I received a threatening email from my ex-boyfriend; the contents of the email was of private photos of me along with a solicitation of sex. I was in shock and stricken with fear.

I told my friend and she knew of Carrie Goldberg and of her firm’s expertise on these cases.

They truly eased my fear and I felt reassured that they would put a stop to my ex’s threat; and within a few hours they sent a stiff and stern letter to my ex. I was very pleased with that letter and their outstanding services. I sincerely hope no one ever has to go through this kind of ordeal, but if you happen to find yourself in a similar situation then I would highly recommend you contact C.A. Goldberg, PLLC for their expertise and counseling.

Attorneys and legal fees are scary. But you know what’s scarier? A malicious bully having your most personal information or images… or your kid’s…. and they have the ability to exploit it in ways that could do irreparable harm.

The team at C.A. Goldberg leveraged a national team to help activate law enforcement and civil courts to bring resolution to an imminent threat to me and my family. Our regional attorney, although wonderful, wasn’t even aware that a law had been broken, let alone had a strategy to protect us and prosecute the perpetrator. All the expertise came from C.A. Goldberg and their network of legal and high tech experts.

I bet my family’s reputation on C.A. Goldberg and I would do it again. They have my complete trust.

MALE, 50s, PARENT OF VICTIM OF SEXUAL ASSAULT

I hired Carrie Goldberg for my Title IX sexual assault grievance proceeding at my prestigious eastern seaboard college.

Carrie Goldberg’s law firm was highly recommended to me by a friend of the family. Thank god I found her. At our very first meeting she asked me to walk her through the incident in question without omitting any details. She asked me to expand and clarify parts of my story that I did not see at first bore any relevance to the case. After I decided to retain her services she set to work right away.

The amount of time and labor she put into my defense was astounding: researching my school’s conduct policies, its past handling of Title IX cases, the backgrounds of the administrators involved, the grievance hearing and adjudications processes (they seem to differ from one college to the next and colleges have so much power to decide the fate of its citizens), the possible outcomes, the process of appeal, and more. Most importantly she prepared me for the discovery hearing. She worked hours with me, advising me on how to stick to the facts, how to address the Title IX officers, asking me questions (many of which they did ask), advising me how to keep my answers clear and concise. To cut to the end, the outcome was successful. I felt heard and justified and the disciplinary actions meted out were the best possible outcome.

Carrie Goldberg’s legal eloquence, fierce advocate for her clients, compassion, honesty and responsiveness is unparalleled to any lawyer out there.

Her team is always with you every step of the way so you are not alone. Together they will go after the evil villains with full force both online and in the courtroom.

What impressed me the most was how easily it was to get in touch with Carrie and her team. She has set the awesome lawyer standard very high for me. It was the best decision I made to work with her firm.

Carrie and her team were incredibly responsive when I had an urgent, time-sensitive issue. I had evening and weekend calls with Carrie as well as her tech consultant, who had innovative solutions to help me confront a very 21st-century problem.

Carrie was particularly sensitive to the potentially newsworthy nature of my situation. What mattered more than anything, though was how much Carrie actually cared, and truly shared my outrage at my attacker.

Industry/Professionals

We are so appreciative to have Adam Massey’s expertise on our panel about campus sexual assault at East Stroudsburg University during Sexual Assault Awareness month (April 2018). He made the trip to Pennsylvania to support our “What Were You Wearing?” Survivor Art Installation and to speak on the “What now? What next?” panel with mental health practitioners and feminist scholars. There were many tough moments and issues that required legal knowledge, and he attended to those moments and issues directly, clearly and with urgency that these ideas deserved. Discussions about the law and sexual assault on campus are complicated and sensitive, he managed the complexity without watering it down and helped our audience through the entanglements with respect, sincerity and knowledge. Our audience was mostly undergraduate students and professors and included survivors and victims. Along with his acute legal expertise, we felt his intense commitment to advocacy and equity against sexual violence in the room. The panel would not have had the same affects or effects without him.

Carrie Goldberg’s visit to the University of Richmond helped our students to expand their understanding of the complexities of nonconsensual pornography and the battle to protect victims’ privacy rights.

It gave the students new tools and resources to use in combatting nonconsensual pornography and to advocate for social change more generally. Many left

Ms. Goldberg’s talk feeling both more knowledgeable and more empowered to be part of the change needed to hold perpetrators accountable for their devastating actions. Ms. Goldberg’s professional and personal passion for this work resonated deeply with our students.
