I was fortunate enough to meet James Goodnow when he was referred to me after I was in a car accident. My case was minor and, considering the larger, more high-profile cases I knew he worked on, I didn’t know if he could—or would—even help me. I called James and he responded right away. He was friendly, attentive and answered all my questions thoroughly. After discussing the specifics of my case, James knew of another attorney who was more in line with what I needed. I was impressed with the way he was genuinely interested in hearing about my case and finding a way to help me, whether it was with him or with another attorney. This speaks volumes of James’ genuine concern about people—clients or not—and making sure they get the legal help they need.
I met James Goodnow last August after I was involved in a motorcycle accident. Referred to me by a family member, James reached out and from the moment we started talking, he explained—in a way I could easily understand—my options and the entire legal process. He did not speak in a way that was intimidating or confusing. Rather, he went through all the issues, answered all my questions, and addressed my concerns. I immediately felt I was in good hands.
Throughout my case, James was available to me any time of the day or night. He always responded to my calls and emails, and communicated everything that was going on through the whole process. His team handled all the details, from the insurance to my medical bills. James turned a very traumatic experience into something that was much easier to handle and get through. I’m very grateful for his hard work, effort, knowledge and skill.
When I first began working with James Goodnow, I was immediately struck by all that he’s accomplished as a young attorney. He’s been profiled by national media, recognized by prestigious legal organizations, and has worked on groundbreaking, high-profile cases. James has also been instrumental in bringing technology to the legal profession and using it to simplify and improve the legal process for clients, attorneys and legal teams. He is innovative and forward-thinking, as well as highly committed to his clients. His easy, calm and professional demeanor assures his clients they are in good hands.
I have known James Goodnow for 20 years and in that time, I have come to know him not only as a genuine and honest person, but also as a highly skilled attorney who takes his job—and the law—seriously. When I started my business, James provided legal advice and perspective that helped ensure my business’ viability, as well as my success as a business owner. Six years after opening my first business, he continues to be accessible, available and highly responsive when I need legal assistance and guidance. He is always open to bounce ideas off, and provides a legal viewpoint and expertise that is unsurpassed.
In the types of cases he handles, James Goodnow is one of the most calm and collected attorneys I have ever seen in action. Dealing with his clients’ stress and emotion adds another layer of complexity to a case. James, however, handles these cases with the utmost patience and professionalism. In one such case, a family had just lost their father in an accidental shooting. James counseled the family not only on their legal recourse, but also—and most importantly—helped them through their grieving. This is what sets James apart.
If there are two words to describe James Goodnow and how he handles his clients, it’s attentive and responsive. James is committed to keeping his clients up to date on their cases, explaining everything carefully and in a way they can understand. Many of James’ cases can be complex, but he makes sure his clients know exactly what is going on. His open, honest and hardworking approach makes him an attorney I, myself, would want on my side.

James Goodnow was introduced to me through a close friend nearly 10 years ago. James is a gifted attorney surrounded and supported by a stellar legal team. They are truly unique on many levels. James and his associates are dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes for their clients, and utilize the latest technology which they combine with their hard work, intense advocacy, and creativity. Beyond this, James and his team have a deserved reputation of deeply caring for their clients and are available to them at a moment's notice (i.e., 24/7). Needless to say, I would strongly and without reservation recommend James.

My daughter was very seriously injured at her school. While my daughter was in surgery, I was terrified and did not know what to do. I needed someone to guide me and protect me during the worst time in my life. James was that person. He and his legal team swooped in and handled everything. They answered all of my questions and made me feel safe and secure. I was very, very pleased with the settlement. My daughter, who still suffers from the injury she sustained, now has all of the things she needs. I would very highly recommend James.

Lamber Goodnow helped me out with a personal injury case. I found them to be intelligent, professional, and very thorough. I was carefully assisted every step of the way and my concerns were promptly and efficiently addressed. Their assistant Jenn C. met their high standards equally. I recommend Lamber Goodnow enthusiastically to those seeking outstanding representation.

James Goodnow did a great job. He returned phone calls promptly, and kept me informed as the case progressed. They hired investigators to look into what happened. I liked that I didn't have to go anywhere, instead they sent messengers if documents needed to be signed. I didn't have to do anything except wait until the end of the case.
