Norman Maurice Goldman (born March 17, 1959) is an American attorney and a political talk radio host.


Goldman first broadcast nationally as a fill-in host for The Ed Schultz Show in 2006, as well as creating colorful segments as the show's Senior Legal Analyst, —responsibilities that he continues to this day. He began hosting his own radio show in 2009, syndicated by Compass Media Networks.

Early years

Born in New York City, Goldman was orphaned at age eleven, and he spent the rest of his childhood in New York orphanages. He graduated from high school in 1976 at age seventeen.

Higher education

Goldman graduated from Hunter College of The City University of New York with a B.A. degree in political science. He then attended and graduated from law school on a full scholarship at Loyola Law School of Los Angeles. He passed the California Bar Exam at age 26.

Goldman was the plaintiff's attorney in Krumme vs. Mercury, a 2002 lawsuit in California. Both the trial court and the California Court of Appeal found for the plaintiffs that the insurance companies were mislabelling agents as independent brokers. The court upheld damages and attorney's fees. An insurance industry journal has described the case as "infamous". Goldman also represented plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed in San Francisco Superior Court against Auto Insurance Specialists accusing the company of paying sales money to an insurer in exchange for commissions.

The Norman Goldman Show

He hosted his own Saturday morning talk show, The Norman Invasion, on KLSX (97.1) in Los Angeles in 2004. That show ran from July 17 to October 30, 2004. Goldman then became a legal commentator on The Ed Schultz Show. In the late summer of 2009, Goldman began broadcasting his own weekday program via internet broadcasting and podcast. The Norman Goldman Show is live from 3-6 PM Pacific time. Goldman picked up several stations after Air America's 2010 demise, as Ron Reagan opted not to continue his 3-6PM PT show after the network's closing. Based in Los Angeles, Goldman's national radio program is distributed by Compass Media Networks.

The program's motto is "Where justice is served", but on-air Norman also uses the motto "The place where fierce independence is the norm", a pun on his first name. The show uses the opening riff to Canadian rock band Rush's "The Spirit of Radio" as its intro.

Recently Goldman created the "four point plan to save America", after chastising politicians such as President Barack Obama for betraying their campaign promises. It includes power-transparency; "a WikiLeaks for radio", and a grassroots quarterback for the coordinating/funding of the progressive message and viewpoint.
