Attorney Awards


Mr. Goldberg's fifty year legal career has spanned broad areas of both public service and private practice. He served both in the Regional Offices and the General Counsel’s office of the National Labor Relations Board and spent four years in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps (included service in Vietnam) in capacities involving advising command on developing and implementing labor relations, labor standards and employment discrimination policies for Army Contractors. He served five years as Labor Counsel to the United States Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources, where he had staff and legislative responsibility for mine safety and health, occupational safety and health, wage and hour and workers’ compensation issues. In four years as Chief Counsel to the Labor Standards Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Education and Labor, he had primary staff responsibility for wage and hour, workers compensation and labor standards legislation and oversight.

In private practice since 1985, first as a partner in the Los Angeles firm of Greene, Broillet, Paul, Simon & Wheeler, one of California’s most highly respected firms specializing in plaintiff’s personal injury litigation, and subsequently in the Washington, D.C. area firm of Lewis, Goldberg & Ball, P.C., Mike developed an extensive civil appellate practice. He has been counsel of record in more than one hundred and fifty civil appeals in state and federal appellate courts, including significant cases in personal injury, product liability, wrongful termination, employment discrimination, defamation and First Amendment issues, and commercial contract breach and commercial tort. In addition to his extensive appellate practice, he has also been active in complex civil and commercial litigation at the trial level.
