My 92 year old mother needed a complete update on all her legal documents. Besides a will, she needed a change on an irrevocable trust, health care proxies, etc.
These things are difficult for anyone, let alone an elderly person, but Elga made the whole experience easy for my mother to understand, making everything clear and concise. The time taken was just enough (not too long, and not too short) for everyone to leave satisfied. I also expressed an urgency for this to be executed as soon as was convenient to lessen my mother's anxiety, and she was very accommodating.
Communication is prompt and speaking to anyone at the office is always a pleasure. I would highly recommend Elga to anyone needing help with the elderly. I am planning to use her for my own will in the near future!

Ms. Goodman was recommended to me and I am so thankful I contacted her. She and her staff outlined what needed to be done to close a very confusing estate which I could have never not completed on my own. She handled everything necessary to get it done. she was quick to respond to my very frequent questions. I and my family are so thankful to have had her as our attorney. She handled the many documents necessary to close the estate. I would recommend Ms Goodman to anyone in need of an attorney.

I had moved from Florida to New Jersey and found that it was necessary for me to redo my trust, willl and related documents. I met with Elga and was very pleased with our meeting. I hired her to do the documents necessary and am pleased with the results of our consultations. She's very professional but also is warm and caring. She made recommendations that were wise. The whole process was very pleasant and I would highly reccomend her.

Elga was sweet, concerned, efficient and we never got the feeling she was rushing us. She explained all aspects of our procedure carefully and in plain English. I would highly recommend her.
We have dealt with other lawyers who are totally concerned with the number of minutes that can be billed. We never got any indication that Elga is in that category. Loved her and her staff.

As a long ago retired attorney I independently selected attorney Goodman, who I had never met, to assist my wife and I with estate planning. What a stroke of good fortune. We found attorney Goodman professional, knowledgeable, most responsive, patient with us and were totally pleased with the finished product Having been around attorneys a good part of our lives, after our last visit to Ms. Goodman's office, my wife and I looked at each other and simultaneously exclaimed to each other……"A Ten Plus". We were delighted and would heartily and strongly recommend attorney Goodman to others.

I sought Elga Goodman's legal expertise with regard to estate planning. My situation was a bit unique and quite complex. Elga is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. If you don't understand something, Elga will stick with it until you do. She has the patience of a saint.
Elga is a very caring, kind attorney who wants only the best for her clients. From my very first meeting with Elga, I felt confident that she would come up with the best possible plan for me and she has. I feel very fortunate to have found her and would highly recommend her to others.

I think Elga is terrific. I hired another law firm and after minimal work and an enormous bill, I felt I was being bilked, and fired them and hired Elga. She was open and informative and knowledgeable, and I would recommend her.

Elga Goodman is a consummate professional and is exemplary of the highest benchmark. Our family sought her legal counsel during a very difficult and stressful time. Several documents needed to be drafted, reviewed and executed within a very limited time frame due to an unanticipated illness of a family member. Elga's expertise and due diligence made the final execution and the delivery of these documents possible within ten days from the date of our family's initial conference with her.
We found Elga to be well versed in her field, insightful, and very skilled and adept in both client need assessment and the application of her knowledge. She is an effective communicator and a good listener. Elga talks to you, not at you, is truly interested in hearing what you have to say, and is receptive and responsive encouraging both an open line of communication and candor with her clients. Her approach is thoughtful, intelligent, and individualized to ensure that the specific wishes and needs of her client are met and executed properly.
I would like to extend my family's thanks and appreciation to Elga and her office staff who are most personable and were extremely helpful in this process, and most notably to Martha, her Office Administrator, who is highly skilled and a powerhouse in her own rite. Our family's experience from the point of initial contact and beyond has been a most positive and favorable one.
Elga and her staff are second to none and one word says it all "Fabulous"!

I recently had estate planning documents prepared by Elga. Not only is she knowledgeable but she is a warm, caring individual who actually listens to her clients. Elga is responsive in every way. Anyone who chooses Elga Goodman as his or her attorney will be making a wonderful choice. She is definitely in a class by herself!!!
