Catherine has been my mother's lawyer representing her prior to and after my stepfather's death. Catherine has dealt with a very difficult situation between my mother and my stepfather's children in a very strate forward and fair manner in the midst of anger and frustration between parties involved. I feel she has exceeded in her duties and is the best lawyer we could have ever had in this situation.
She continues to represent my mother and I am grateful and thankful to know her.
We retained this attorney because of her excellent recommendations and her pleasant personality. Over several years, her lack of knowledge cost us an enormous amount of money (her fees were reasonable but we lost our case, which was more than $300,000). On review, we and other attorneys we contacted later realize that she neglected many simple tasks, such as not getting "promises" in writing, not knowing that a check is not good past 6 months, and not using the simple legal tools that her opponents used. Her behavior was truly shameful.
Mrs. Goodman was retained to help me secure the best possible situation for my aging father. The process took a couple of unexpected turns along the way, and each time Mrs. Goodman advised the best path to keep us moving toward our ultimate goal. She was completely professional no matter the circumstance, always responded promptly to queries, and always provided the information and background needed to help us make the best choices. She will always receive our highest recommendation.
Mrs. Goodman is an excellent probate attorney, whom I have had the pleasure of working with on many occassions. She is very knowledgeable concerning probate and guardianship matters.
