Martin Goldberg is a trial lawyer representing clients in high stakes litigation in Florida and across the country.  Marty’s practice focuses on complex civil litigation and government enforcement actions, both civil and criminal. Marty has been lead trial counsel in numerous federal and state cases, and arbitrations, representing publicly held and private companies and their boards across a wide spectrum of civil litigation areas, including business and employment disputes, health care, qui tam, antitrust, products liability, RICO and class actions.  He also manages and resolves parallel criminal and civil investigations, including those involving public corruption, business, banking and health care fraud.   

A native of Washington D.C., Marty graduated from the University of Maryland where he was selected as the University’s Outstanding Male Undergraduate and years later as its first Outstanding Young Alumnus.  After becoming a Certified Public Accountant, Marty graduated from Georgetown University Law Center and came to South Florida to serve as a Law Clerk to United States District Judge Sidney M. Aronovitz.  He then entered the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida where he gained substantial trial and appellate experience over seven years prosecuting some of South Florida’s most high profile and complex criminal cases.  He was honored by the Department of Justice with its Director’s Award for superior performance as a trial attorney.  Marty left government service to form Lash & Goldberg LLP. 

Marty dedicates a portion of his practice within the health care industry and routinely advises a host of major health care corporations regarding daily operational, regulatory and litigation concerns, including exclusive and hospital based contracting, health information privacy, hospital bylaws, peer review and medical staff privileging, and he offers counsel regarding compliance with surveys and inquiries by federal and state agencies.

Among other recognitions for his litigation skills, Marty was recently selected as one of South Florida’s “Most Effective Lawyers” and is also one of a small number of lawyers recognized nationally by his peers for current inclusion in The Best Lawyers In America® in three different categories - Commercial Litigation, Health Care Law and Criminal Defense: White Collar.
