Our parents teach us many things throughout our lives. One thing they can NEVER teach us is how to handle going through a divorce and how to handle our ex's and kids during a divorce. Having been through 2 different attorneys on my case, I was extremely skeptical hiring yet another attorney to guide me through this divorce stuff. Garth Goodman was definitely upfront, honest, and didn't tell me what I wanted to hear, he told me what I needed to hear. Garth opened my eyes to my own actions and how they were going to impact my case (good and bad). I spent a lot of money on attorneys who were telling me they could help me keep this and help me keep that, but did not go through the other scenarios that might happen. Garth never promised me a specific outcome and gave me insight as to all sides of the spectrum. In the year he spent working on my case, I was never given a sense of false hope. He truly prepared me for all best case and worst case scenarios. Garth is an excellent attorney with great knowledge of the laws. Garth has lead me into a direction of moving forward, leaving the past behind and this skill is truly priceless. I couldn’t be anymore grateful.

Mr. Goodman was my attorney in my divorce case. I needed to relocate out of state where I had a great job opportunity and where my daughter had an opportunity to be around more family. Mr. Goodman put together a fantastic strategy in my case that allowed me to make the move for a better life. Mr. Goodman was very organized and made sure I was fully informed on the strategic plan and what I needed to do to be prepared. Mr. Goodman opened my eyes to evidence and witnesses that were a crucial part of our strategy. I really felt like I was involved in my case and had a say in the strategic plan. With such a big move ahead of me, Mr. Goodman’s retainer fee was affordable and manageable. His office promptly returned emails and telephone calls, and I never felt abandoned. Mr. Goodman was definitely on top of his game and I highly recommend him.
