Description: It is early in the practice of law that one becomes familiar with Justice Sutherland’s words in Berger v. United States: 293, US 78, 88 (1935). Changing the tense somewhat, prosecutors and law enforcement officials generally could be counted, he opined as “ministers of justice”, not striking foul blows, interested in doing justice and with a goal of just not winning. This case was often cited by courts content on the blanket acceptance (but not so much now) of a law enforcement team that Justice Sutherland believed took the moral high ground. Join Jay Goldberg as he discusses multiple cases involving the justice needed to end police trickery and deceit.
Jay Goldberg began his career as an assistant district attorney in New York County right out of Harvard Law School working for district attorney Frank S. Hogan.

Donovan, an American hero, who effected the transfer of Russian spy Rudolph Abel for Francis Gary Powers (Bridge of Spies, with Tom Hanks)

Former President of the Criminal Bar Association Richard Levitt called Goldberg "one of the foremost litigators of this or any generation."[2] On the night Goldberg was recognized with an award from the Criminal Bar Association, former Chief of the Criminal Division of the United States Attorney's Office S.D.N.Y. Frederick Hafetz said: "I consider you to have the best killer trial skills I have ever seen in my 47 years of practice, and I have worked with the best, courtroom presence, capturing the jury's attention through devastating cross and summations that have jurors on the edge of their seats.
In a review of Preparation and Trial of Criminal Cases Within the Second Circuit, New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Lonschein wrote: "[Jay Goldberg] holds the distinction of being one of the most skilled, if not the most skilled trial lawyer in the United States."[4] Former President of the Criminal Bar Association Richard Levitt called Goldberg "one of the foremost litigators of this or any generation.
On September 22, 2011, he was honored by members of the United States Congress for his dedication and study of the principles of the United States Constitution.
