Elaine J. Goldman graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BA in Middle East Studies and continued her education at Columbia University where she received a Masters in International Affairs, specializing in Mideast Oil Economics.
Subsequent to working in the international arena in her native New York, she moved to California where she worked in public relations and fundraising. Her work writing policy and procedure manuals for several hospitals provided her with a foundation in medical terminology often used in the worker’s compensation arena.
Ms. Goldman attended Southwestern University School of Law where she was awarded the American Jurisprudence Book Award in three classes. She received her JD in 1999 and began working for a workers’ compensation defense firm in 2000 where she specialized in sports and entertainment cases.
Over the years, Ms. Goldman has sought to find the most economical means of handling litigation, but when necessary, has utilized her extensive experience to thoroughly prepare cases for trial, which has led to numerous “take-nothings” and several “double take nothings.”
