In 1973, Columbia Attorney Harry L. Goldberg earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law and he has been practicing actively ever since. Civil litigation is the center of his practice with focuses on business law and personal injury, medical malpractice to be specific. Helping those who cannot help themselves with legal matters is his calling, and it is a true testament to his character to see that he still holds true to his personal mission.

Not all legal successes will be won through a courtroom battle, and Mr. Goldberg knows and recognizes this truth. By obtaining his certification as a Circuit Court Civil Mediator and Arbitrator by the Circuit Courts for South Carolina and the U.S. District Court for South Carolina, he has secured his reputation as an attorney who can pursue alternatives to verdicts to help his clients. With this belief and philosophy in mind, he frequently lectures for the Bridge the Gap Program, as well as other CLE (continued legal education) opportunities presented by the South Carolina Bar, which allows him to present dissertations to graduating law school members, covering topics regarding alternative dispute resolution tactics and strategies. To top off his achievements in mediation, he was once the chairman of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section of the South Carolina Bar and was invited to media broadcasts to encourage this solution to legal complications.

Other professional memberships include the Resolution of Fee Disputes Board, the House of Delegates of the South Carolina Bar, and the District of Columbia Bar. Professional recognitions include an AV® Preeminent™ Rating from Martindale-Hubbell® as well as selection for the Best Lawyers in America (Mediation and Arbitration, 2012 – 2015).
