    • I recommend James Gooding.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Personal Injury matter.

    If you want a lawyer that is understandable and thinks of your welfare, you don't have to look any more. Mr. Gooding has helped me with anything that I've needed, and plus he has worked with all of my friends because my friends trust me and my judgment. He is always working on your case to get things done in the right matter for you and your case.

    • I recommend James Gooding.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Personal Injury matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was involved in two collisions, just months apart, which in itself caused a lot of blame between the defendants while attempting to steer my case on a road of confusion and low expectations. James was able to navigate through the paperwork, depositions and eventually the settlement conference and attain a great financial outcome for me. I always felt in the information loop, able to speak to him or his great staff with any small or large question. Hopefully I will never need personal injury services again, but if I do I know he is the only one I will choose to represent me. I have referred others to him and encourage you to speak with him as well, for the personal attention and professionalism he brings.

  3. James Gooding is a top notch attorney!

    • I recommend James Gooding.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Car / Auto Accident matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was in injured in a five car collision.  My car was totaled and I had a major whiplash.  I sought out a lawyer and found one.  He looked at my case and accepted it.  However, he didn't think my injury was serious and got mad at me for almost using all of my PIP.  Three to four months into this case he wanted to settled for $5000.00.  I was shocked and in disbelief.  I dismissed this attorney and lucky for me I found and hired James Gooding. 
    Hiring Mr. Gooding was one of the best decision I made in my life.  I was extremely impressed with his experience and knowledge at every stage of the proceedings.  Mr. Gooding did his research and learned every little detail of my case. He was very passionate about his work. He took the extra time and effort to make sure everything was in order and correct.  He also kept me informed of everything I needed to know and do to prepare for my case.
    AllState wanted to settle my case at $39,000.00.  Mr. Gooding rejected the offer and believe my case was worth more a lot more.  I believed and trusted his decision.  The end result, I got the maximum compensation of $110,000.00. 
    James Gooding is a top notch attorney.  I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney.  I would higher him in a heartbeat if I was ever injured again.
    Thanks James for all your great work!!!
