Keren Goldenberg worked as a public defender for 12 years in New York City and Lowell, MA prior to opening her own practice. As a public defender she handled the toughest and most serious cases against relentless prosecutors and unforgiving judges. She consistently won great results for her clients under the most challenging circumstances. Ms. Goldenberg earned the respect and appreciation of her clients by fighting hard for them while showing them kindness and compassion when few others did.
Ms. Goldenberg is often invited to teach and train both new and experienced attorneys at trainings and conferences for the public defender’s office, Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education, and local bar associations. In addition to her busy trial schedule, she trains and coaches public defenders and private lawyers seeking to improve their skills as criminal defense attorneys. Ms. Goldenberg lectures extensively on a wide range of topics and has established myself as an expert in drug cases. She regularly get calls from lawyers across the state looking for advice and guidance with their drug cases. Ms. Goldenberg co-authored a chapter in Trying Drug Cases in Massachusetts, which is the lawyers’ handbook for representing clients accused of drug crimes and has been invited to serve as faculty at Harvard Law School’s Trial Advocacy Workshop and the Macaronis Institute for Trial and Appellate Advocacy’s Advanced Evidence Skills program.
