Mark Goldsmith in an intelligent attorney with a broad understanding of complex legal matters. I have worked with him on various projects from real estate to personal injury. His depth of legal knowledge makes him a diligent, yet fair adversary. In other instances he has proven to be an extremely supportive co-counsel.
