In January of 2011, Ms. Goldman opened her own law practice in which she continues to represent employees in employment law matters, including but not limited to, sexual harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, wage and hour, overtime, failure to pay commission, severance disputes, and breach of contract claims. Additionally, Ms. Goldman now offers her services as a mediator of employment law disputes.
