Our Roots

Mitchell S. Goldman is our firm’s Managing Partner. He started practicing law in 1984 with the firm of Holcomb, Ennis, Theriac, Brinson, Amari & Roberts, P.A., However, the roots of this firm trace earlier than 1984. A majority of practitioners at Cantwell & Goldman call Brevard home, and have either lived or worked in this county for decades. Being a home-grown firm means that many of our clients have been with us for ten, twenty, or even over thirty years – and counting!
