This does not come as a surprise to many in the Bankruptcy field, but attorney Randolph Goldberg has plead guilty to tax evasion in Federal Court. Though I was surprised at the terms of the deal worked out, I was not surprised by the indictment. I have represented many clients who first met with other bankruptcy attorney’s with comparable moral character and got them through the Bankruptcy process without any of the heart ache that goes along with the bankruptcy process.
The simple fact of the manner is that there are many attorneys out there with ethical problems. My hope is that people will spend a few minutes online researching their attorney prior to retaining them. Being represented by an unethical attorney can cost someone a lot in a bankruptcy and a few minutes of work in advance can save a lot of corrections later.
