Jonathan S. Goldman has been a criminal defense attorney throughout his entire career. After opening and running his own firm as a sole practitioner out of law school, Jonathan worked as Senior Counsel in the criminal department at a boutique law firm, and joins us on our criminal litigation team.
Originally from Milwaukee, WI and educated at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and DePaul Law School, Jonathan works on our high level felony criminal trial matters. He has tried hundreds of cases to verdict, including securing not guilty verdicts in homicide, armed robbery, drug possession, gun possession, DUI and other trials.
Jonathan summed up his approach to criminal defense work:
"Criminal defense is different than any other area of law. There is more than money at stake, and as a defense attorney it is my job to stand between the client and the State. I'm proud of the work I do and the relationships I develop with clients. Honesty and integrity go hand in hand with the practice of criminal defense. I always fight for my clients and enjoy litigating criminal cases at trial.
I am always leaning and am never satisfied with mediocrity. There is always something to be learned from attorneys who have been practicing longer than I have. I want to do the best possible job for every client, every time. Constantly learning and teaching is the only way to stay on top of the game."
Adding to the diverse perspective he brings up Villalobos & Associates, Jonathan worked as an Emergency Medical Technician responding to 911 emergency calls. His background in first response and medicine helps in making medical records and conditions understandable for court cases.
Jonathan joined Villalobos and Associates in December, 2017.
