Jeana Goosmann is An Outstanding Business Partner!
If I could rank Jeana Goosmann higher than a five-star, I would! Jeana is an outstanding attorney, responsive to all of our business needs, timely, accurate, fair, and helps us to work toward specific solutions that create legal win-win's for both parties. She is highly active in our community and respected by me and many others. She has created her own firm from scratch and done so in such a way that it rivals many of the long-time firms in our community. She is, without a doubt, a consummate legal professional. Our organization keeps Jeana's firm on retainer, and truly consider her our "legal department." She is exceptional!

Jeana Goosmann - Great Attorney - Great Law Firm!!!
It is obvious that Jeana takes pride in work. She delivers high quality, responsive, trustworthly legal advice to our organization and I highly recommend her to anyone.

Insurance
As an outsourced CFO, I recommended that my client seek Jeana's firm because of their specific expertise in dealing with major loss insurance claims. Her associate has demonstrated a solid understanding of the issues, has communicated clearly and timely regarding strategies and options, and has followed through with action items assigned to him. Just as important, he has listened carefully to the clients perspective and has adapted his strategy accordingly.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Totally Ineffective Law firm
I have not hire Ms. Goosmann but hired her firm to represent me and had the worst experience ever. Please note that with my 40 years of experience in hire Education I have worked with many law firms and am capable of assessing one. The firm is totally ineffective with a revolving door. During a year plus time I have had at least four different attorneys working on my case , one left another took over and the process keep getting repeated four time, two of were competent attorneys, the other two awful. In addition, every time a new attorney is assigned to my case I had to pay for their time to read and catch up. As a result I lost a substantial sum of money. I absolutely would not recommend the firm.
