Best experience ever
I was referred to Mr. Reid by another attorneys office and it was the best experience ever. I was injured in an accident that was not my fault and Mr. Reid took my case assuring me everything would be ok and it was. I will refer him to anyone who needed help the way he helped me.

The personal touch
After an injury and being pressured and pushed around by the insurance company I was introduced to mr reid by a friend. Immediately my stress levels dropped. Brody took charge and did everything he said he was going to when he said he was going to. No one wants to suffer with an injury and ill live with mine my entire life but I wouldn't have the comfort and medical carafe if it were not for Brody and his team. The level of communication was great and even with mutually busy schedules he always finds/ found time to text or call whenever I had a question. I don't feel like just another folder in the pile here, its much more personal and hands on.

Great lawyer
Brandon ( Brody ) Reid is an excellent lawyer and I am so thankful he took my case. I was hurt on my job and ended up losing my job due to injury. When the worker's comp insurance stopped my benefits I was at a loss on what to do. I called his law firm and he took my case. He worked hard to get my benefits reinstated and then to settle. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. I see all these commercials on tv for the big law firms and I think to myself " they don't have anything over on my lawyer" . Brody Reid worked very hard on my behalf, and for that I will be forever thankful. I highly recommend him.

Brody Reid and The Law Firm of Reid Goodwin....Another Satisfied Client
At a time in my life when I needed the attention of an attorney, Brody Reid, and his firm, were recommended to me by a friend. I can honestly say, being referred to Brody was a blessing. His commitment to my needs as a client were genuine, not only from the standpoint of needing legal advice, but he also made sure my health and recovery were given the highest priority. The results he and his firm got for me are greatly appreciated. I sincerely hope that anyone with a legal matter such as mine, would take time to consider Brody, and Reid Goodwin for legal counsel.

Experienced, Committed, Skilled, and Helpful
The title for my review really says it all. This was the first time I had ever needed an accident lawyer (and hopefully the last) so it was all a new experience to me. Mr. Reid patiently explained every step of the way in an incredibly professional and thoughtful manner. My case was given great care and attention from start to finish and I am incredibly grateful for his invaluable service. I was highly satisfied with the end result and would recommend him to others.
