Mr. Goggins was recommended to me by a family friend. When my son was injured in his car crash, he met with us that very night. Meeting us at the hospital he explained our choices. My wife and I weren't in any place to be making decisions at that moment, and he made sure we understood that even if we didn't use him, we needed an attorney. I would assume an attorney that meets you at a hospital is sleazy. He was being sincere. He really just wanted to make sure we understood what our choices were, and that our lives had been forever changed. I appreciated that.
When it came time to hire him, he welcomed me into his office like we had known each other for years. He explained things in detail, and made sure we understood exactly what we needed to do. "Clarity and understanding, are the most important things at this point" is what he said.
While we were spending our days helping our son walk again, he handled everything for us. He isn't just a good lawyer. He's a good man. I would recommend him to any person in need.

Bill Goggins was nothing but professional and extremely diligent when handling the closing on my home. He was prepared and thorough, leaving me very satisfied that I was not being taken advantage of and our closing was done correctly without missing any important documents. Aside from his law practice Bill was accommodating and understanding to my obligations and worked very well by accommodating my busy schedule and working off hours with me to get the job done in time. Not only would I recommend him as a lawyer but I would be honored to call him one of my friends.

I was arrested for a DWI and got Bill Goggins information from a friend who also used him. Mr. Goggins was very helpful and gave me all of my options rather than other lawyers that I have used who try to rush you in and out without caring. I stopped by one day without an appointment and he gladly made time to sit down with me for a few minutes. I am happy that I used this lawyer for my DWI.
