Excellent attorney
I’m the kind of guy who likes regular updates even if the updates are “nothing new this week”. Having hired another attorney that never returned my calls I decided to go with someone else and so I chose Mr. Goodwin after someone recommended his firm to me. His office and secretary answered every question and concern I had no matter how many there were. Not very informed regarding legal matters myself he and his team were able to put my fears at ease and helped me through the entire process from day one. His firm made an extremely stressful experience a little easier to deal with. I would highly recommend this firm!

Brad Goodwin settled my case promptly! Shannon Harris his paralegal kept in contact & answered any questions/concerns I had if Brad was unavailable at the moment. They settled my case, I'm very satisfied with the results.

I would not at all recommend this law group for a worker's compensation case. First of all, when you go in to sign your paperwork have a lawyer with you to make sure that you understand all of the fine print (such as if you go to trial your lawyer no longer is allotted 20%...the court awards them as much as they want which was in my case almost 50% of my award). There were multiple issues with patching together work notes that my lawyer did not catch and because of that I got a few thousand less than what I should have. This law office did NOT do my case justice in any way.
