One man’s journey through the practice of law with some of the world’s most powerful and colorful characters, including Donald Trump, Robert F. Kennedy, Willie Nelson, Miles Davis and Armand Hammer.

Former President of the Criminal Bar Association Richard Levitt called Goldberg “one of the foremost litigators of this or any generation.”

Former Chief of the Criminal Division of the United States Attorney's Office S.D.N.Y. Frederick Hafetz said: “I consider you to have the best killer trial skills I have ever seen in my 47 years of practice, and I have worked with the best, courtroom presence, capturing the jury's attention through devastating cross and summations that have jurors on the edge of their seats.”

New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Lonschein said: “[Jay Goldberg] holds the distinction of being one of the most skilled, if not the most skilled trial lawyer in the United States.”

In The Courtroom Is My Theater, Jay Goldberg shows why he is one of the preeminent trial attorneys in America, as he shares stories of his high-profile courtroom drama as well as his adventures outside of the courtroom with some of the country’s most prominent politicians, businessmen, entertainers, and “men of honor.”
