Mr. Goldman has since been recognized as one of the Ten Leaders of Matrimonial & Divorce Law in Northern Virginia under the age of 45.

In 2018, Mr. Goldman was selected as a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers, a distinction earned by only 2.5% of all attorneys in Virginia and Washington, DC.
Collaborative law and Mediation have become vital tools for Mr. Goldman as more and more clients have been drawn to methods of practice that keep families out of Court (generally referred to as Alternative Dispute Resolution). As he puts it, most clients don’t define “success” by winning at trial, but rather by accomplishing the following objectives: 1) making the process quicker and more efficient; 2) gaining control over their case instead of leaving it in the hands of a Judge; and 3) lessening the hostility between the parties so that the family can continue to manage its affairs in an amicable fashion. If practiced effectively, it can also have the added benefit of saving families tens of thousands of dollars that would otherwise be spent in litigation.
