Dealing with the insurance company on the accident was over whelming. After Mr. Goings took my case life became much simpler. I was actually able to rest at night. It can be hard to find an attorney during these times that still have the heart and compassion for upholding the law that would even make Lady Liberty blush ;-) I would highly recommend Robert Goings as my attorney any day!!!

Robert is an exceptional attorney and client advocate. He has represented my company on more than one occasion, each with a stellar result. He is calm, but confident; aggressive when necessary, but always a gentleman. Although still relatively young, Robert already has an impressive list of clients and accolades. He is a true up and comer and one to watch. He will undoubtedly continue to represent me and my company in the future.

I recently met with an motorcycle accident in which I suffered a very serious leg injury.While dealing with the hospitalization,I also had to deal with not so unique position of defending myself to even family and friends who assumed, i was at fault. And without skipping beat, the other parties insurance company was faulting me for the accident and telling me, I was liable for it too. The anxiety of anticipated legal issues and financial burden was overwhelming. That's when I met Robert, my first meeting with him he assured me to stop worrying about the legal aspect of this situation and just concentrate on healing. And that's what happened; within weeks he worked on my behalf and changed the position of all parties involved. By the end of it, everyone was convinced by Robert, that this accident was not my fault, and also I was not liable for anything but rather the other party was the responsible for any financial liability. Robert had turned the case for me, a total 180 degree, when it comes to results. It was a pleasure working with him, he is effectively professional, courteous, quick to response and extremely knowledgeable . I highly recommend him to you and your family.
