Excellent Service
Staff were courteous and helpful. Mr. Goff was knowledgeable, very prompt when calling back, and explained things in layman’s terms. Although we paid a flat fee for the service we needed, he was generous with his time. I highly recommend this firm.

Great experience
Add Goff is legit! He took care of my case regarding a super speeder ticket that I received in Louisiana. I live in Georgia and did not have to make a visit back Louisiana for court, he took care of it all himself.

Mr. Goff handled my case personally, the diligence and expertise he provided excelled above and beyond my expectations. He took time to address any issues or concerns I had, provided guidance, and made sure I was informed of everything taking place throughout the suit. I'm highly pleased with the services Mr. Goff provided and would not hesitate to use him in the future.

My case has been ongoing for the past 4 years with no results, until I decided on Goff & Goff Law Firm. My prayers were answered, and you accomplished in 1 year what others could not succeed in doing. I am so very grateful you accepted my case. I would like to take the opportunity to express my gratitude and thanks for representing me this year. Your hard work and dedication has really helped me throughout this ordeal and received the results that I knew could be done. If you need results call Goff & Goff

Great person
I came to Goff and Goff clueless after a car accident. He and his wife were so nice and explained everything so thoroughly. He got me into the doctor the very same day which was great because I actually had a sprain that I did not know about. Add Goff is a great person and lawyer
