Attorney David L Goldman Co-Hosted the ‘Share The Light’ Charity Luncheon At Michael’s On East In Sarasota

SARASOTA FL - Attorney David L. Goldman, a partner of the law firm of Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez, Murphy & Walsh (also known as “Justice Pays”), co-hosted the ‘Share the Light’ charity luncheon at Michael’s on East on Thursday, October 27, 2022 which was sponsored by the law firm. The event celebrated the 27th Anniversary of local not-for-profit organization Second Chance Last Opportunity. Mr. Goldman serves as board chairman of Second Chance and co-hosted the event with the group’s founder and CEO, Dr. April Glasco.

The event featured moving testimonials from those whose lives have been turned around as a result of their involvement with this local charitable organization. Selina Frazier, a single mother of three children, found herself homeless and without hope until she reached out to Dr. Glasco and Second Chance for help. With the organization’s assistance she found housing and employment.

Ms. Frazier’s children actively participate in the programs and activities that the group provides. Both she and her children were featured in the music videoI am what I eat” which promotes healthy eating.

Attorey David Goldman noted that Second Chance has also become an Emergency Crisis Center administering food distributions that have reached over 80,000 individuals in the community. These distributions take place at the Second Chances main office on MLK Jr. Way in Sarasota, and continue to provide food, toiletries, and baby supplies to those in need twice a week.

Second Chance now has three separate office locations. In addition to the MLK Jr. Way main office, the organization has opened a women’s center which focuses on the needs of women, children, and families. A third location provides professional counseling service with two licensed mental health counselors, April Glasco MHC and Paul White, LMHC.

April Glasco also spoke of the organization’s current fundraising campaign to expand the main office so as to add a second floor and to have all screened in areas of the building be air conditioned.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
