82 - SPOTLIGHT ON THE LAW
SARAH R. GOLDMAN Personal Injury Attorney
> Sarah Goldman is a rising star in the legal community and her journey there has been anything but traditional. Born and raised in Alaska, Sarah learned early in life the value of tenacity and dedication. Sitting in the courtroom of a high profile murder case at eleven years old watching her father, The District Attorney, destroy the child murderer’s alibi witness in what can only be described as a Perry Mason moment, sealed Sarah’s fate. Sarah was destined to be an attorney and would do whatever it took to become one. As her passion for the law continued to grow, it was only a matter of time until she was offering critiques her father would incorporate into his consistent trial schedule. “I knew at eleven years old that I was going to be an attorney and that I wanted to fight for people who couldn’t fight for themselves. Growing up with a trial attorney for a father, I was immersed in the law and relished every opportunity to learn from him and observe him in action.” Sarah says. On the fast track to reaching her life goal, Sarah excelled in her studies, finishing high school early and completing college in less than four years. Not surprisingly, she followed in her father’s footsteps, graduating from Southwestern University School of Law after participating in the esteemed SCALE program, a two year accelerated J.D. program in Los Angeles, California.

on to work for a large Florida based civil defense firm. While there, she represented and defended many Fortune 500 companies and major insurance companies in civil litigation before becoming a plaintiff’s personal injury attorney. “I think everyone has a passion for something in life. For me it has always been helping others. For years I defended multi-billion dollar corporations and insurers from those they had injured. I learned a lot but felt unfulfilled. Now I represent those who have been injured because of someone else’s neglect and I enjoy giving a voice to those who need it most. I am doing what I love.” Sarah displays the perfect balance of compassion and advocacy. She prides herself on being available to her clients and understands the struggles of being an accident victim. While she knows that in many cases, no amount of money will compensate an injured person, Sarah fights hard to make sure that her clients get just compensation. Sarah’s passion and dedication is noticed by more than just her clients. For the last two years, Sarah was voted by her peers, fellow lawyers on both sides, as one of the top attorneys in the State of Florida. <
