She began her legal career as a litigation associate at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom, and then became a clerk for Judge Norma Manella of the U.S. District Court, Central District of California and later to Judge Terence Evans of the U.S. Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit. Judge Goswami joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Central District of California where she served as the Deputy chief of general crime, domestic security and immigration crime sections, and coordinated Project Safe Childhood.
