Helped me more than I ever thought was possible
Mr Goad was great! He helped me through a situation when I was expecting the worse. The outcome was far better than I ever expected. He always answered any question or concern I had and his office staff was always helpful.

Amazing Service and Representation!
Attorney James Goad is a great attorney. He took on our case when no one else would, and put a lot of time an effort to help us win the case. He loves challenges and has a great personality to boot! Definitely 100% recommend Mr. Goad to anyone that is looking for great representation! Thanks!

bad divorce good outcome
I just recently got done with an ugly divorce case, that involved 3 children and lasted a little over a year. James Goad was extremely dedicated to my case, a case that was not easy by any means, and i appreciate all the work He and his staff put into it. There is no other lawyer that i would have wanted. The outcome of the case was good. i am very happy to have this part of my life behind me. Thank you Mr. James E Goad.
