My experience as a client for Mr. Goings was exceptional. Mr. Goings was the only attorney to reply to my initial inquiry about a workplace injury. My case may have seemed too small or trivial to other firms, however Mr. Goings was willing to listen from day one. From the very beginning, he treated me as if I was a longtime associate or client. He knew every step of the way and always made himself available whenever questions arose. No question for Mr. Goings was beneath him. Throughout the entire process, I was comfortable that he was at the wheel of my case. He truly does care about his clients and it shows in his dedication and professionalism. It is rare to find any business today, operating at the standard, the Robert Going’s Law Firm sets. The bar he and his staff sets is hi. If Mr. Goings practices in an area of law specific to your needs, I wouldn’t bother calling anyone else.

My daughter was involved in an auto accident. Major surgery was required. She was not the at fault driver, and the other driver was underinsured. Dealing with the insurance companies on the accident and on the disability end was overwhelming.
We previously knew Robert and contacted him about the case. He quickly took over and leed us through all that needed to be done.
He is very knowledgeble and at all times we felt that our trust in him was well placed. Through the many E mails, Phone Conversations And personal visits we were always kept informed.
At all times we felt free to call him or his staff with questions,and always felt that we were the most important clients he had.
My family and I are thankful that we have gotten to know Robert and consider him a friend more than an Attorney.Although always nice and plesant to us ,he always fought for our best interest.
In the end we were very pleased with the outcome of our case,and felt that he could not have done a better job for us.I would highly recommend Robert!

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.
