HKQ Law"s Richard Goldberg Rated Preeminent Lawyer for 15th Straight Year

Attorney Richard Goldberg Kingston, PA - Attorney Richard Goldberg, a principal in HKQ Law’s Business Team, has received Martindale-Hubbell’s AV Preeminent® Lawyer Rating, which is “a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence”. This marks the 15th consecutive year that Attorney Goldberg has earned the top rating.

Martindale-Hubbell’s ratings reflect a combination of achieving a very high general ethical standards rating and a certain legal ability numerical rating. The legal ability ratings are based on performance in five key areas: legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgement, communication ability and legal experience. “I’m extremely pleased and humbled by the Martindale-Hubbell rating,” said Attorney Goldberg. “It is gratifying when your efforts are recognized by your professional peers.”

Attorney Goldberg has been designated a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer in the areas of employment and labor law every year since 2005. He was selected for inclusion in the 2015 edition of “The Best Lawyers in America” in the area of employment law-management. “Best Lawyers” compiles its annual listing by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their peers. A listing in “Best Lawyers” is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor. For more than three decades, “Best Lawyers” has earned the respect of the profession, the media, and the public, as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals anywhere.

Attorney Goldberg is a member and past President of the Luzerne County Bar Association; a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, where he served on its Board of Governors and House of Delegates, and chaired numerous committees; a member of the American Bar Association, where he served on numerous committees and chaired the Standing Committee on the Unauthorized Practice of Law; a member of the American Judicature Society; and a fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers.

In addition to his career as an attorney, Attorney Goldberg had an extensive military career, having retired with the rank of Colonel from the U.S Army Reserve. He served as the Chief of Staff of the 79th Army Reserve Command at the Willow Grove Naval Air Station, and as commanding officer of the Army Reserve Centers in Hanover Township and Scranton. He is the recipient of numerous medals and commendations, including the Legion of Merit and three Meritorious Service Medals.
Attorney Goldberg has also been very active in the Jewish community, having served as President and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Temple Israel and President of the Jewish Community Center of the Wyoming Valley, both in Wilkes-Barre. He is the recipient of the B’nai B’rith Community Service Award and the Jewish Family Service Distinguished Service Award.
