Mr. Goldenberg is a trial lawyer that focuses on trying construction and personal injury lawsuits. He primarily represents owners, contractors, engineers, architects, and material manufacturers in the defense of commercial construction claims. After graduating from law school in 1999, Mr. Goldenberg worked in the corporate and transactional practice section of Weil, Gotschal & Manges.

In 2001, Mr. Goldenberg brought his corporate practice background into a litigation setting at Lorance Thompson. Since joining Lorance Thompson, he has practiced in the construction law section focusing on defending design professionals (architects and engineers) and contractors. The size of the matters he has been involved in range from small residential construction to $25 million construction defect claims.

Paul enjoys helping others and helping them achieve their goals and as a lawyer, he gets to do this every day in a wide range of areas. The key to achieving his client’s goals is always being prepared and ready to try the case.
