The Best Lawyers in America© has named Goldberg Segalla partners Neil A. Goldberg, Thomas P. Bernier, Albert J. D’Aquino, and David L.

The publication recognized Neil as Buffalo Product Liability (Defendants) Lawyer of the Year, Tom as Baltimore Product Liability (Defendants) Lawyer of the Year, Al as Buffalo Insurance Lawyer of the Year, and David as Greensboro Insurance Lawyer of the Year for 2018.
