Forest Hills lawyer launches campaign to become Queens County’s first openly gay elected judge


Forest Hills attorney Michael Goldman launched his campaign for civil court in Queens County’s 1st Municipal Court District.

An employee of New York’s court system, Goldman has also practiced locally and has centered his campaign on communicating his acute knowledge of the law, balanced temperament and respect for the litigants who would enter his courtroom. Goldman said he’s garnered a broad and diverse record of volunteer service to his Queens community and its neighborhoods while petitioning recently on the corner of 30th Avenue and 31st Street in Astoria.
