Early life and education
Her work against revenge porn is best known but her career as an attorney is broader, including work against sexual extortion, online harassment, and cyberstalking, as well as representing victims of sexual assault. She has criticised New York City Department of Education for failing to protect and to provide care for female African-American students who were sexually assaulted at school In 2015 she obtained a settlement of $950,000 for a teenage client whose report of sexual assault was badly mishandled by her school's administration.
Goldberg also represents Matthew Herrick who is suing the gay dating app Grindr for failing to stop a user from sending sexually aggressive men to his home and job under the assumption that they were going to have violent sex.
She is a board member of the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative, a non-profit that tries to raise awareness of life-altering consequences of revenge porn. In 2017, the Electronic Privacy Information Center awarded her a Privacy Champion award.
In 2017, Sony Television announced that it was developing a dramatic television series based on Goldberg's life and work.
Her book, Nobody's Victim: Fighting Psychos, Stalkers, Pervs, and Trolls, was published by Plume in August 2019.
