Expert, Compassionate & Ethical Attorney
We chose Robert Goodman to represent me because of his reputation for being extremely competent AND ethical. Everyone at his firm was kind, responsive, extremely competent and expertly guided me every step of the way. I never had to call for an update on my case as Bob Goodman routinely called to keep me advised and to check on my medical progress. At times when I was overwhelmed by everything, Bob Goodman took the time to calm me down and reassure me. He is professional and compassionate and obviously cares about his clients’ well-being. He always told me what to expect and made me feel protected and expertly represented. We eventually settled at mediation and I’m profoundly grateful to Bob and everyone at Palmisano & Goodman. Robert Goodman is a stellar attorney.

Fantastic Injury Attorney and Firm
I've, (unfortunately), had to use the services of Mr. Goodman twice in the last 20 years for major injuries, (a very serious injury while at work and one involving an automobile accident which ripped-up my knee. The ONLY good part of either experience was being referred to Bob. He knows both the law and the system like the back of his hand, and truly works, seemingly endlessly, to ensure the best possible result for you. Both Bob and the remainder of his firm are available at all times to you, and never make you feel as if any question you may have is "stupid" or a waste of his/their time. This firm is no bunch of "ambulance-chasers". Bob expects the truth from you, and wouldn't take you on as a client unless he knows you have truly been harmed at the hands of someone/something else. Without a doubt, being seriously injured is a horrible thing to go through, I still deal with my injuries today. But at least with Mr. Goodman and his firm on your side, you won't have to worry about losing your income, paying for medical services you may need in the future or being fairly compensated by the wrongful party for your pain and suffering. If you've been seriously injured, don't even think about calling anyone different, you won't be disappointed.

The Ultimate Personal Injury Lawyer that Delivers Results!!
I am 67 years old. I hurt my neck on a business property and needed a fusion to repair herniated discs. The insurance companies hired three attorneys who blamed me for the accident. It was very upsetting but Mr. Goodman kept me calm and patient. He then did an amazing job of showing the condition was dangerous, they knew about it, and didn't fix it. After he cross-examined the defense doctor, the insurance companies' attorneys asked for a conference and we settled for $1 MILLION dollars. I highly recommend The Goodman firm.

You need Robert (Bob) Goodman as your Lawyer
Bob Goodman is an amazing lawyer! His fees are more than reasonable and his work is easily worth ten times what he charges. He (and his staff) are extremely competent and knowledgeable. He was able to protect me and my assets from a potentially life ruining outcome. I was being sued on two counts with multiple parties involved and things did not proceed as one would expect. One party tried to pull some interesting moves (more infuriating and scary to me) but Bob was not phased. He made sure I understood what was going on and provided a clear, aggressive strategy; which he executed flawlessly. I realize as well, that my case was not a major money maker for his firm, but he fought for me as aggressively as one would for a multi-million dollar client. I truly cannot thank him enough.

Great Lawyering
Mr Goodman is a first class attorney, very skilled diligent and has extensive trial experience. Often I feel as a result of this, cases are settled with high number's. He has represented me in a 2008 MVA Flip over and a 2012 MVA. Both cases were challenging, presented many obstacales. Mr Goodman is like GPS and navitgages right through to get the best possible outcome.

Amazing Trial Lawyer!
Mr. Goodman was absolutely outstanding as my lawyer when I suffered a serious neck injury three years ago. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, kind, hard-working and kept me informed of the progress of my case every step of the way. He has been consistently recognized by his peers as a "Super Lawyer" for 9 years running! If you are looking for quiet calm competence and brilliant representation coupled with the highest integrity, look no further. Quality representation that delivers.

Great Result
I am 77 years old and was involved in a car accident 3 years ago. I hurt my shoulder, back and hip. Allsate Insurance Company offered no money to settle my case. Mr. Goodman did an amazing job at trial and the jury awarded $450,000. He destroyed Allstate's doctor on cross-examination. If anyone needs a lawyer, go to him. His staff was great also - very professional.

A seasoned professional you want on your side of the table!
I have worked in the insurance claims industry for 40 yrs defending personal injury cases on behalf of the insurance companies. After years of defending numerous cases opposing Mr. Goodman, I got to know and respect his talents and tenacity. He is extremely thorough and proficient in every case I had dealt with him. Over 10 yrs ago, I myself had a personal injury case and the only attorney I would trust with my case was Mr. Goodman. He promptly forced the other side to admit liability after cornering them with fault and the case just became, "how much" and settled at a very acceptable figure. I recently had another personal injury case which Mr. Goodman represented me and again he had obtained stellar results forcing the other side into submission and settlement. Mr. Goodman and his staff are the ultimate professionals leaving no stone unturned and getting the best possible results! I have had experience working with hundreds of attorneys countrywide over the years of my career and as far as I am concerned, he is the only attorney I would trust with my interests.

The BEST Attorney!
Mr. Goodman told me not to accept $65,000 for a shoulder injury. The insurance company said they wouldn't pay any more. We ultimately settled for $135,000. He did a great job! I would highly recommend him!

Great verdict!!
The jury rewarded three times what the insurance company offered to settle. I highly recommend this attorney. I was involved in a second accident and I came back to the same attorney.
