About Me

I'm a proud father of two teenagers, an avid skier, and a political junkie. 

Since 1986 I have played tuba with the California Repercussions, a semi-professional pep band made up mostly of alumni of the UC Davis Marching Band and the UC Berkeley Marching Band.  Go Bears!

I am also active with the Society for Creative Anachronism ( SCA ).

    I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Goodson is relatively new to the Avvo community, but it is clear from his many responses that he not only knows the law, but also has a desire to provide people with practical and helpful information in order to address their legal concerns. I am looking forward to his continued presence in the Avvo community. James Frederick
