After a highly successful career as a litigator, Craig’s primary focus is building the teams that directly manage client cases, and overseeing the firm’s largest cases. He still oversees pre-suit and litigation matters that involve significant loss, such as catastrophic injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death cases.
Craig is an active national speaker to community organizations, lawyers, and other legal professionals on a variety of topics concerning personal injury law, civil litigation, and the justice system. He is the founder of several charitable causes, including the Emanuel McMiller Scholarship for Higher Education and Heart of the Game (HOTG). HOTG provides free Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to community and youth athletic associations across the country, which have saved the lives of young athletes who have experienced Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) while on the field.
Raised in Clearwater, Florida, Craig earned his undergraduate degree at Duke University, where he played NCAA Division I soccer for two years. Motivated to pursue a career in law by his mother, Sondra, who was a Harvard Law School grad, and the 1st female teaching fellow at Harvard, he received his JD from the Levin College of Law at the University of Florida.
Craig and his wife Colleen live in Palm Beach Gardens, and are the proud parents of two daughters who are both currently in college. When not strategizing GOLDLAW’s future, you can find Craig playing on a local soccer pitch or enjoying his favorite food, popcorn, while watching any movie in the Star Wars family.
Speaker. Innovator. Community Leader.
In high demand as a speaker and lecturer, Craig founded and created the highly respected 7 Figure Attorney Summit. Launched in 2017, the 1-Day workshops allow him to share the formulas/strategies he’s developed over the years with other Attorney CEOs so they can better serve clients and maximize revenue for their practices. Craig is a recognized leader in the American Association for Justice for being one of the few lawyers in the U.S. who has successfully litigated in AED law. The availability of AED devices has been proven to save the lives of those stricken by sudden cardiac arrest, and Craig has found justice for the families of those who suffered a SCA in public and could have been saved if the facility had an AED.
Craig has established GOLDLAW as a business leader in community involvement through the firm’s affiliation/support of many organizations in Palm Beach County. GOLDLAW is a “Straight Ally” and partner with Compass, working to engage, empower and enrich the lives of the LGTBQ+ Community. Other organizations that the fiem supports include the Palm Beach County Human Trafficking Task force, the Caridad Center/Free Clinic for Immigrants, The Read for the Record Project at the Luciano Martinez School and the Mothers Against Murderers Association
Craig is also the founder of the Hoops4Heroes 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, hosted annually in the spring, to raise donations for local veterans in need.
Goldenfarb’s leadership extends beyond GOLDLAW. He is also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, having obtained results of more than a million dollars in many cases. This recognition demonstrates his proficiency and competence in achieving exceptional results for his clients.
In addition to these distinguished accomplishments, Mr. Goldenfarb holds an “AV Preeminent” rating by the Martindale Hubbell peer review process. This is a significant recognition that is a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of legal professional excellence and ethics.
