Jay Goldberg, one of America’s preeminent trial attorneys, has represented Robert F. Kennedy, John F. Kennedy, Willie Nelson, Miles Davis, Donald Trump, Johnny Cash, Armand Hammer, The Hells Angels and many others over the course of his long and illustrious career. The Shelter Island Public Library welcomed Mr. Goldberg to Friday Night Dialogues on Nov. 8.

The guest speaker was Jay Goldberg, widely recognized as a top litigator. His new book, “The Courtroom Is My Theater,” formed the basis for an hour of recollections about the famous and infamous whom he’d represented in court.
