Having received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Michigan State University (B.S. – 1971), a Juris Doctorate from Wayne State University Law School (J.D. – 1974) and being admitted to the State Bar of Michigan, Marc Goldman began his legal career as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Michigan. He spent nearly 10 years as General Counsel to the Michigan Department of Commerce, Corporation and Securities Bureau, during which time he successfully engaged in the regulation of the securities industry. He also became an expert in the law concerning corporations, partnerships, franchises and trade regulation. Marc Goldman has successfully argued issues before the Michigan Supreme Court, State and Federal Courts of Appeals, has prosecuted, both civilly and criminally, high profile securities and commodities cases, and won important trials before judges and juries.

With 10 successful years in public service, Marc Goldman then turned his attention to the private sector, limiting his practice to business and insurance cases. Throughout the past three decades, Marc has helped his clients, in varied industries, obtain favorable results relating to a wide range of business and insurance litigation. In 1996, Marc Goldman opened Marc A. Goldman & Associates P.C. after 12 years as a member of prominent Detroit area law firms.

Since establishing Marc A. Goldman & Associates, P.C., Marc has seen his practice constantly grow.

Marc Goldman has represented high profile clients, while continuing to win cases for smaller, yet equally important clients. The size and resources of the opposition never intimidates Marc Goldman. Marc has obtained very favorable results on behalf of clients encountering stubborn insurance companies unwilling to pay out benefits to compensate for legitimate building/dwelling and contents losses. He also has had success against such industry giants as Ford Motor Company, Viacom, and major securities firms. Marc Goldman obtained one of the largest awards in Oakland County Probate Court history when setting aside a pre-nuptial agreement allowing a surviving wife to enjoy a 15 million dollar estate rather than a $200,000 gift under the will. Marc Goldman was the lead trial attorney in a case which resulted in more than 7 million dollars being awarded to 47 former employees of a Detroit based corporation.

Recognizing that a good settlement is often better than a good lawsuit, Marc Goldman has negotiated countless settlements that obtained favorable results and avoided the costs and risks attendant to a trial. However, Marc knows that a case cannot be settled for the best possible amount if one is not prepared, and capable, to try the case. Marc Goldman takes pride in giving the same intensity to cases involving modest amounts because every client matter merits that effort.
