Outstanding lawyer
Stacy Goodbread and her staff are outstanding in both their skills and patience and dealt with and overcame a very difficult and deceptive person for me , I do not believe to many lawyers could have handled this case as well as she did , if you want an honest but tough lawyer this is the only one you want ,

Great to have on my side!
Faced with a tricky divorce, I couldn't have been in better hands with Stacy. She is tough and guides you with expertise that gets the job done. My ex played dirty tricks but I felt like we were always one step ahead of him. Even when I suggested certain courses of action she would be very honest with what a judge would and would not entertain and each time we came out with a great result!

Amazing attorney and team
Working with Stacy and her team was absolutely amazing. Hiring her to help with my divorce was the best decision I made during this stressful time. She and her team were very professional, courteous and always had my best interests as her priority. She and her team were very open and shared details throughout this process. She always took time to answer my questions, and did so within a very speedy time frame. I fully recommend Stacy and her team for your law needs.

Stacy is the best attorney
I hired Stacy to help me with my ex husband. She did an excellent job for me and my children. She is a Pitbull in the court room, I couldn't have ask for better representation. Hiring her is the best decision anyone can make.

Divorce made easy!
Stacy helped me with my divorce. I was dead set on making sure to not hurt my ex in the process. Stacy followed my wishes and helped us finalize fairly and fairly easily. She’s an asset to our community and the best support system for families!

THE laywer to have on your side
Stacy and staff helped me with both my divorce and child support issues and have been extremely professional through the entire process. Promptly responded to all questions and have even continued to assist me with additional questions and issues that have popped up long after the case was completed. Even though I was in the worst time of my life, Stacy and staff got me through it all and I would highly recommend her to help guide and provide great information to anyone in need of legal services.

Divorce case
Stacy made the process for divorce simple, decisive, and easy. She listened to my story and made certain I retained everything I owned prior to my marriage and was entitled to. She and her office communicated throughout the process and answered questions as needed. Would highly recommend her and her team to anyone!

You want the best. She is the best
She went above and beyond for me and my son. She fought a hard custody battle fight. She got me what I needed, and helped me fight the good fight. She is honest, and doesn’t sugar coat the truth. Trust me. You want Stacey on your side.

Reccomended
We used stacy for a modification case and she was fantastic! She was quick, worked with our schedule as needed, and got us everything we wanted. She offered a free consultation, guided us in our options, and the communication was fantastic the entire time we dealt with her and her office. If you are looking for a lawyer who is honest, confident, efficient, and has a "go get 'em" type approach, she is your woman. I would hire her again in a heartbeat! Thanks stacy!

Child custody
Stacy and her wonderful team were by my side for the entire 9 months of my custody case. Stacy made sure to have not only my best interest, but my childs. I am beyond pleased with the result of my case and would highly recommend her services. The one thing that always stood out to me was her promptness to call or email back. Should the need arise I will seak her services again in the future.

Efficient and compassionate
I really appreciated everything Stacy did when I took my ex back to court over noncompliance of our decree. She not only helped me, but she helped my ex too (he was not well represented by his attorney). I don’t really have words to express how grateful I am - while I was taking him to court, we still try to have a positive relationship for the sake of our child, and I was just so grateful she didn’t railroad him. She could have easily. ******** Thank you, Stacy, for respecting my ex, and helping that poor attorney of his who was pretty much useless. Thanks for getting me everything I wanted, and also showing compassion at the same time for the people I love. It meant the world to me. You came highly recommended to me for being a bull dog - but you’re also a bull dog with a lot of class. And that’s exactly what *we* needed.

You NEED her on your side. Go with the Queen Bee!
Stacy represented me in my divorce with children. This was far from an easy case, but with Stacy's guidance and tenacity, we secured 50/50 possession and a fair split for this Dad. I wouldn't have wanted any other attorney by my side. Gentlemen, if your case ever makes it in front of the judge, you'll want a female attorney that can ask your ex the tough questions without looking like a man bullying a lady. Stacy was able to make her points in ways a male attorney simply couldn't. A divorce sometimes take unexpected turns down some nasty paths. Stacy helped navigate through the muck while never losing sight of the primary objective. She is an experienced litigator that knows the local judges(a huge +), a street fighter when necessary, charms her audience in court, and a highly skilled negotiator and advisor. On occasion, we all let emotion drive our decisions. A great thing about Stacy is that she will be frank with you if you're being unreasonable or irrational in your expectations. Lastly, I've also been on the other side in a case where Stacy was opposing counsel. Trust me...you NEED her on your side. I highly recommend Stacy Goodbread. The choice is an easy one. Go with the Queen Bee!

Best family lawyer! Professional & a Woman of Action
Contacted & consulted with Stacy Goodbread (also previously hired) to handle an urgent & complex family matter. Within minutes of our conversation, we had a plan of action. I followed her recommendations & in a very short period of time, it resulted in a positive outcome for my young daughter. My family is grateful for Stacy’s genuine care & professional & actionable advice. She’s truly a family advocate and provides you confidence in facing sensitive family matters.
