The Goodman Law Firm is an advocate, counselor, and adversary you can count on for top-quality representation in all family law-related matters. Providing client-focused, results-oriented representation is our mode of operation and main priority. We take the time to listen to our client's needs, concerns, and goals. We will educate you on your rights, options, legal process, and procedures, ensuring you are in the best position for success each and every step of the way.

We want each client to understand the nuances of their case to make informed decisions and be a true partner in your representation. The Goodman Law Firm will advocate aggressively to achieve desired outcomes based on the goals and circumstances of the individual clients.

After nearly a decade practicing at one of the largest domestic law firms in the nation, Kara Goodman, the founder of The Goodman Law Firm, recognized a need for a personalized, customizable and creative approach to family law. After more than 9 years of advocating for fathers and husbands at her previous firm, Attorney Goodman left the corporate arena and opened her own practice.

The Goodman Law Firm was created with an eye towards combining large firm proficiency and small firm personalization to ensure no client’s needs are left unmet. No client should feel that their domestic matter is treated as a one size fits all, pre-planned, monotonous agenda, as may be the case with some large firms. Nor should their resources and options be limited or controlled by the needs and desires of the law firm over those of the individual clients.

Here you are treated like family because to us you are part of our family. Your concerns are our concerns. Your priorities are our priorities. Your battles are our battles. Isn’t it time you had an attorney who has your back, your front, and your blindside?

She's the best, "Final Answer "
Hands down Kara is the best. After spending a stressful, gruesome year of battling for custody, the opposition bowed out and decided to settle. I was so convinced of the outcome I truly believe the other side knew how prepared Kara was previously and how prepared Kara made me throughout the whole process. I trusted her with my divorce, child support, and custody, and she handled each with the same tenacity as she did from the beginning. I wouldn't have made it through the year without Kara being my lawyer, at times I wanted to just stop fighting, and her confidence and passion sparked me to keep pushing forward. If you want someone who truly cares about justice for her client?? Kara is the best option.
