About Adam

Learn Adam’s areas of practice.

Mr. Goodman began his legal career litigating on behalf of those accused of crimes by first interning for the Federal Public Defender's Office for the Middle District of Florida.  Wanting to learn just how prosecutors put together their cases against the accused, Mr. Goodman decided to serve as an Assistant State Attorney in Miami-Dade County for over six and a half years.  

While acting as a prosecutor, Mr. Goodman tried over seventy cases to verdict.  During his time as a prosecutor, Mr. Goodman handled death penalty murder cases, murders featured on national television programs, complex traffic homicides, crimes of violence, as well as economic crimes.  Due to his expertise in trial work, Mr. Goodman was selected to serve as the Chief of Litigation for the Misdemeanor Domestic Violence Unit, where he was tasked with training over twenty attorneys on the rules of evidence, and how to properly handle a case from the initial investigation until a jury verdict.  Additionally, Mr. Goodman was chosen to serve on the prestigious Traffic Homicide Unit where he investigated numerous traffic fatalities that ranged from vehicular homicide to DUI manslaughter.  Mr. Goodman also argued on behalf of the State of Florida before the Florida Parole Commission, and was specially assigned to prosecute multiple cases by the Office of the Governor.

Amazing!!!!!!!!!!
So I called around a bunch of attorneys asking for advice, and everyone was saying how much it would cost. They kept saying over $1000 and I kept freaking out. I got Adam on the phone and he answered all my questions and even explained how I didn't need an attorney for my issue. He walked me through it and I got done what I wanted without paying. I appreciated his honesty and how he didn't need to just charge me for something anyone could do.

Case Dropped
I got arrested for something I didn't do and Adam was able to show everyone I didn't do it. He's texted me just to wish me a happy holiday and I thought that was cool since the case ended in March.

The most brilliant lawyer in Miami
Adam is just amazing, he can out lawyer most any attorney in miami. he is integral, returns phone calls. of the last 3 cases I have had they have all been dismissed. I have many friends in law enforcement and understand the system well. Adam hands down is the best. he just recently had bail set for an alleged murder suspect who was blamed for a rabbis murder. Almost impossible to get bail on a murder charge. thats how good Adam is. I call him the young Jerry Spence the most reckoned attorney in history of trial work. thanks Adam

Amazing Result!
I was charged with an offense where I was denied a bond. I sat in jail for a few months and then Adam got on the case. Within two weeks I was released. Adam was then able to negotiate me a plea to a misdemeanor with no probation and no conviction. I was originally facing life in prison and at least 10 years. I owe Adam my life and recommend.

The best you can get!
Adam really is the best you can get in Miami. I came to him with a fairly serious case, but Adam said not worry unless he told me to. Those words never came out of his mouth once. Adam would call me every couple of days to give me updates on the case, and sometimes to just see how I was doing. Whenever I called, he picked up the phone. He even spent time to talk to my mother about what was going on with the case, which eased her anxiety. In the end, Adam got the case dropped for me, even though the police were out to get me. I hope I never need another criminal defense attorney, but if I do, I'll make sure I use Adam.
