Christina Goldberg

We’ve all lived, and learned, that the good old adage “no good deed goes unpunished” seems to hold true nine times out of 10.  Both professionally and in my personal life, I’ve learned this lesson the hard way. Is everything disputable? Some would say our society has become overly litigious. I suppose I’m not a […]

So you’ve seen the TV ads, heard the radio ads, been bombarded with all variations of advertising from attorneys who want you to retain THEIR firm.  Yep, we do it, too. Except our advertising doesn’t actively and blatantly disparage our competition. Personal injury attorneys, including Julie Luhrsen and I, all say many of the same […]

Please. PLEASE tell me the truth.   Remember that blog I wrote about how we at Luhrsen Goldberg like taking on difficult-to-prove claims? In that particular blog, I inserted a caveat saying that we like difficult (but not meritless) claims. Over the years we have gotten better at deciphering truth from fiction. In doing so, we […]

One thing I love about our firm is that we are willing to, and frequently enjoy, taking on more challenging cases. By “more difficult” I mean liability isn’t quite as clear as we would like for it to be.  Don’t get me wrong: There is a big difference between a meritless claim and a claim […]

What a great time to be alive, amirite? Nothing like a little pandemic to spice things up. Regardless of your political stance on the subject, things for the past year and a half have, well, truly sucked. From babies to seniors, students to business owners, we have all had to make adjustments to how we […]

“Sue sells seashells by the seashore, but I stepped on one of Sue’s shells so I want to sue.” That’s how the tongue twister goes, right? If you’ve caught the television commercial we produced about the shockingly LOW number of Florida civil claims that actually end up going to jury trial — you know, a […]

Not long ago I wrote a blog post about the value of “but it’s not fair” damages. To recap, just, no. There is no jury instruction on, or inherent value to your case in, an “it’s not fair” argument, where there is no one to assume liability. I am compassionate and empathetic and will hold hands […]

I rarely like to blog about actual laws. Mostly because it can get monotonous, but also because I prefer to muse about other things. That said, I think it important to do a quick blog about the fact that Governor DeSantis recently vetoed a bill that had passed through Florida’s legislative bodies. The bill would […]

It’s a fairly common scenario: You’re in an auto accident and don’t particularly want to call your local 1-800-let-us-refer-you-to-a-doctor hotline because, well, you have your own doctor! (Please understand that this blog isn’t a commentary about, or a reflection of my opinion about, referral hotlines.) Instead, it is an attempt at addressing why, exactly, your […]

I’m not a feminist, but …

What is a feminist? Feminist is defined as “someone advocating social, political, legal, and economic rights for women equal to those of men.” Why do I ask this? I love creating blogs because they are mostly an opportunity for me to muse poetically (or maybe not so much) about whatever random thought comes to mind. […]
