TV Lawyer Randolph Goldberg Sanctioned for Forgery and Fraud
Well-known TV lawyer Randolph Goldberg is being sanctioned for forgery and fraud.
It’s a federal case Contact 13 Chief Investigator Darcy Spears has been following for nearly four years.
This case is the latest in Goldberg’s string of legal troubles.
As we reported in September, Randolph Goldberg is already under federal indictment for tax evasion.
Now, a federal bankruptcy judge says Goldberg is duping clients who are coming to him desperate for help.
Susan Goodman decided to meet with attorney Randolph Goldberg after seeing his television ad.
When we first spoke with her in October 2009, she said it was the worst mistake she ever made.
“He forged four tax returns. He did a power of attorney that I wasn’t aware of. He literally threw me out of his office and said–can I say that?–you’re breaking my balls, get out.”
Federal bankruptcy Judge Mike Nakagawa says Randolph Goldberg is guilty of all that, and more.

Veterans Administration Trademarks “GI Bill” to Try and Protect Vets
For about two years, VA’s online communications team has been closely tracking the advertising and recruitment efforts of for-profit schools looking to bring in GI Bill tuition dollars. In some cases, these schools have ensnared Veterans looking for info by using official-looking websites, which funneled potential recruits to those schools without any balanced, objective information. We aimed to get the word out in order to help Veterans make the best decision possible.
This all came to a head earlier this year, when a group of state attorneys general led an effort to sue the company that owned GIBill.com, a particularly deceptive site. The company settled, and the website was turned over to VA and now redirects to our GI Bill page.
Of course, with millions of dollars up for grabs, schools and marketing firms won’t lie down because of the trademark, so we’ll remain vigilant to ensure Veterans aren’t victims of deceptive recruitment when they decide to make the most out of their education benefits.
