TL;DR: I'm in my mid-twenties, and I was the defendant in my 2-count misdemeanor case. I had an issue with one of two charges, but I accept/ed responsibility for the other charge. That is where my case begins...
I hired Mr. Goodman between January and February 2019 expecting all proceedings to conclude within 3 to 4 months. Little did I know my case would endure an unprecedented escalation to State court given what I thought was an open and shut case. After a grueling year though, my case was heard in December 2019.
In December 2019, Mr. Goodman was able to present a watertight case to the State prosecutor and judge, thus swiftly ending our painful fight.
He was able to execute such a deal despite my rather hands-off communication with him during the entirety of the case. I was enduring medical matters during the case–only making Mr. Goodman's job of defending me more difficult. Yet... He understood, and for that, I am forever grateful.
So... In short! I'm not sure whether I'm more satisfied with my case's result, or whether I'm still surprised at the tolerance and professionalism that Justin has provided me throughout 2019.
Mr. Goodman is no longer my attorney, but he still is and will remain, my role model in practicing patience, empathy, sympathy, and most importantly fairness among one another.
Anyway, if you've read this far, I know it seems like I just threw out a vague case summary with not even constructive criticism to speak of, but I have NONE! So, please do not take my words lightly if life seems rather dark for you at the moment.
Therefore, if and when you need an attorney; and IF you have any sense of self-preservation, humility, or whatever else–don't skip over Mr. Goodman as he surely lives up to his last name.
Thank you, Justin. From my family to friends and neighbors, you are a saint.
P.S. Mr. Goodman doesn't BS, and I'm sure he doesn't like hearing it either. The sooner he knows your story, the sooner he will fight tooth and nail for the sake of what I believe is the power of truth no matter how difficult.

Justin Goodman was quick, professional, and efficient when I hired him to look into an issue I had reinstating my CDL. Very pleased.

Justin is a very meticulous person that will ensure that you are fully aware at all times of what is happening in your case. He is honest and realistic in the potential outcomes that could occur.
Justin managed to get me a great deal where I only had to do some community service hours. He is an awesome person and even better lawyer, I highly recommend him for any alcohol-related incident that you may have.

Justin was competent, informative, and worked effectively to resolve my case in a satisfactory reduction. Hopefully I won't require his services again, but I will rehire him if I ever need similar representation.

From our first conversation to the last, Mr. Goodman was always focused on the best possible outcome for my complicated case. With a disorderly conduct charge in the Atlanta Municipal Court, I was worried of so many different factors facing my charge. But with the consistent guidance, off-the-clock communication, and his experience as a former prosecutor.. Justin ultimately got my case DISMISSED!!

Attorney Goodman was awesome. He handled my case in Fulton county. He was punctual, professional and trustworthy. I'm honored to have worked with him and I would refer my family and friends to him!

I have never had to hire an attorney before and to be honest my impression of attorneys were that they are all out for your money, until I met Justin Goodman. I had to hire Justin to defend me because of DUI and failure to maintain lane charges. The first time I spoke to Justin was on the phone and I instantly felt comfort and relief. Do not get me wrong after I got of the phone with him I was still terrified out of my mine and completely ashamed of having to tell a complete strange about a stupid mistake that I could not even give full details about. Justin never once judged me, he never made me feel like I was the first and only idiot in the world that had ever enjoyed her alcohol a little too much. I also never felt like just another paycheck to him. On the day I met Justin face to face he took the time to listen to my situation and told me what the worse and best scenarios could be. He explained in detail every step of the process and answered every question I had. No matter how many times I asked the same question I never felt that I was a complete annoyance to him. Justin was able to have my case dropped because there was not enough evidence to prove I was driving. I had complete confidence that Justin would get my charges at least lowered but he far exceeded my expectations with the results of my case. Even if Justin would not had been able to get my case dropped I would give him 10 stars out of 5 because of the respect and sincerity he showed me throughout this terrifying process. I will be forever grateful to Justin Goodman!

Words cannot describe how satisfied I was with Justin Goodman representing me in my DUI case. I am so glad I picked up the phone and called him that Sunday after my arrest in Cobb County. He promptly returned my call. Once I explained my situation to him, he felt very confident in having my charges reduced are thrown out. He put my mind at ease even though I knew I had done nothing wrong. He said he would fight for me to achieve the best possible outcome. He kept me updated on all interactions between him and the prosecutor. With the evidence that was collected during the time of arrest, he was able to show no signs for a DUI or any other major crime. The only Citation that was given was failure to maintain lane with no fine. The DUI was thrown out. Additionally, he talked to the prosecutor and the Judge to have my arrest record restricted. Both agreed that there should not have been an arrest in the first place. My record would be restricted. Justin Goodman is the right man for any job. A1 service, professional and always on top of his game. Highly Recommend.

There are few things more stressful and despairing than being introduced to the justice system via a DUI arrest. Unfortunately, I was introduced this way. I started making phone calls almost immediately after my long weekend in jail, met with several lawyers, but quickly chose Justin Goodman to represent me.
In our initial meeting, Justin walked me through the workings of the entire process, reviewed my case, and discussed possible defenses and realistic outcomes. He took note of my criteria for an "ideal" situation, understood my priorities, answered my questions, and lifted the burden of what seemed like impending doom.
Throughout the negotiation process, Justin and his staff were available if I had questions or concerns, and kept me informed on key dates, events, and new information. He took the time to make sure I understood every step of the process and spelled things so that I could make informed decisions. He was truly at my disposal, often answering questions that I had already asked 5 times. Business is obviously good, but in any given conversation, you are the center of his attention.
Justin was able to successfully negotiate my DUI, Hit & Run/Failure to Render Aid, Reckless Driving, Failure to Maintain Lane, Improper Lane Change down to a Reckless charge, general moving violation and community service. Justin not only far exceeded my initial expectations, but also left the judge impatiently waiting as he negotiated a (literal) last minute change to my deal as I requested it. He owned the courtroom.
I hired Justin to get me the best deal possible, and not only did he do that, but he also gave me peace of mind throughout the entire process. In my opinion, that is invaluable. This process is so overwhelming and complicated, looking back, I can't imagine not having Justin at my defense.
If you find yourself in legal trouble, no matter your financial situation, your skepticism, I recommend you at least have a consultation with Justin about your options.

Although I (thankfully!) won't have to use his services, I want to recommend Juston Goodman. I gathered he does traffic violations, car accidents, & criminal cases. He was timely in returning my call (again, I'm not a paying client), informative, incredibly friendly, and very honest. During our consultation, Justin gave me a very clear path to what steps I need to take, and what recourse that I have.
