About Ronita

Learn Ronita’s areas of practice.

A native of Iraq and a Chaldean, Ronita Bahri came to the U.S. with her family as a refugee at the age of 8, settling in the Detroit area. At a young age she became trilingual, speaking her native Aramaic, Arabic (which she learned while living in Iraq and Jordan), and English here in the United States. Bahri, the youngest of six children, was the first of her family to go to college. She not only went to college, but also graduated magna cum laude from Wayne State University in 2011 with a B.A. degree in political science and psychology. After earning her undergraduate degree, Bahri set out to San Francisco for a new perspective on life and to earn her J.D. from the University of San Francisco, School of Law. In 2014, she returned home to the Detroit area after graduating with one goal in mind: To serve the community.

"I missed home," she says, "and I always wanted to be in a field where I could help those in need."

Before becoming a Detroit personal injury attorney at Goodman Acker P.C. in 2015, Bahri worked as a legal and policy associate at Michigan Community Resources in Detroit, where she assisted start-up nonprofit organizations. Having had some courtroom experience interning with the San Francisco Public Defenders office during her third year of law school, she wanted the chance to try cases. So when the opportunity to join Goodman Acker, P.C. came along, she took it, launching a busy practice that focuses on personal injury and no-fault insurance cases.

In law school, she was very active in student organizations, serving as president of the Middle Eastern Law Student Association and chief executive editor of the Law and Global Justice Forum. She was also co-chair of the Student Bar Association's Diversity Committee.

Currently, she is a member of the Chaldean American Bar Association and the Michigan Association for Justice. In addition to the personal satisfaction she derives from helping people, Bahri also finds law to be a fulfilling profession in other ways. "It's a learning experience,” she says. “I never want to stop learning, so that's one of the things that I enjoy about it. And there's a lot of human interaction, whether it's people on the other side or your clients or co-workers. I really enjoy that."

Bahri also takes pleasure from spending time with her family—she has seven nephews and three nieces who mean the world to her. "I wanted to be a part of their lives, they are very important to me." She is also an avid follower of the Detroit Tigers and the Detroit Red Wings.

While I hope no one has to suffer the heartaches after a major accident, I couldn't recommend Ronita more. My dad was significantly injured and she was patient, helpful, and truly cared about how he was doing. On the family side, Ronita answered all of my constant questions, no matter the time or day. She was flexible, thorough (I learned so much about the process), and more than willing to answer and give advice whenever we asked. She let us read and be a part of every step of the litigation process, carried our hand throughout every turn, and ultimately advocated for my dad beyond would we could have imaged. We are so thankful for the work she did and the friendship/sounding board she provided as we navigated a very difficult recovery journey. Thank you so much for your team and all of the work that you did for us, Ronita!

A God Send
Ronita Bahri is an excellent attorney and she is genuinely concerned about her clients. She was there for me at one of the worst times in my life and has fought for me every step of the way. Ronita is extremely professional, yet down to earth and approachable. She always returns phone calls keeps you in the loop of what is going on with your case. She consistently went to bat for me with all the parties involved in my case. Ronita is also well respected and liked amongst her colleagues and opposing counsel. Ronita and her secretary Terri even sang happy birthday to me in her office to brighten my day; that is a testament to the type of person she is. She goes above and beyond for her clients! I can't say enough good things about her and her work ethic. I recommend her to anyone who asks me for a good attorney you can trust! I can't thank her enough and I feel extremely blessed to have someone as brilliant, caring, dilligent, and respected as she is working for me.

Best Law Firm
As far as I’m concerned this is the best law firm in town. I had very tough case and my attorney Ms. Ronita Bahri worked hard the entire time to get a great settlement for me. The other law firm I have tired before weren’t even close to how they treated me so I really appreciate everyone that took a good care of me.

My experience with Ms. Ronita Bahri
When I first met Ms. Bahri she made me understand why I should consider taking actions for my rights. Without her, I wouldn’t be so confident with my case. She is wonderful inside out. Thank God she came my way. Thank you Ronita for the hard work.

Someone who truly goes out of their way. Someone who who exceeds expectations. Someone that truly listens and provides feedback that makes you feel comfortable and you just know everything will be ok. Someone that will have your back. Someone that seperates themselves from everyone else. And, Most importantly, someone who cares. That someone, is Ronita!!! If you are reading this, your attorney search is done. Ronita is the best. Thanks again Ronita!!!

Beyond Excellent
Ronita is an excellent attorney. I couldn’t be more satisfied with all the help and knowledge she provided me. She’s always on top of everything and sometimes she checks on me just to see if I need anything extra and how I am feeling. Love her support and I feel like I am in good hands. Really really appreciate her and I would over and over choose Ronita. Highly recommended without a doubt.

Ronita truly made me feel like family, not only was she very timely with answering all questions emails and anything else that was needed but she made me feel like I was her only client. Her balance between being my attorney and making me feel like a part of the family is unprecedented. You couldn’t pay me to go anywhere else. Keep up the great work which I know you will!!!

An Attorney in Your Corner
From our initial meeting, Ms. Bahri made it clear that she was a concerned and skillful attorney. For the duration of my case she defended me against attorneys and insurance companies, making this traumatic and difficult time of my life much less stressful. She is professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly, she cares about her clients' well-being. I would recommend her to anyone in need of representation.
