TristaPortalesGoldberg | Cincinnati Divorce Lawyers - Family Law

Trista Portales Goldberg

I am a natural problem solver and people person.  Family law was the perfect fit for me and have I developed a practice at Beth Silverman & Associates exclusively helping families in transition. I truly enjoy working closely with my clients as they navigate the unchartered and often turbulent experience of family conflict.


My practice includes Domestic Relations and Juvenile Court cases involving the division of assets and debts, the payment of spousal and child support, child custody and paternity issues. I am licensed to practice law in the State of Ohio and the Commonwealth of Kentucky and frequently appear in Hamilton, Warren, Clermont and Butler counties.


I am trained in Collaborative Law and utilize these skills to assist clients develop creative and one of kind resolutions to their cases.  I approach my work with compassion, strength, and integrity during one of the most difficult times in my clients’ lives.  You can count on me to be responsive to your needs and work strenuously to pursue your goals.


Family law matters go to the core of who we are as individuals and the outcomes impact the most important aspects of our lives.  It is crucial that we develop a trusting professional relationship as I will provide you objective advice about your options.


“The negotiation and resolution of family law issues is delicate and complex. I provide professional legal advice while maintaining a compassionate view of the highly emotional aspects of terminating a marriage and providing for the care and support of children.”
