    For James Goodnow, nothing may be more important than the relationship he has with his clients. Dedicated to rightfully earning his clients’ trust and confidence, he isn’t afraid to think outside of the box when it comes to making the attorney-client experience more effective and efficient. James is always pushing for new ways to use technology to communicate effectively with his clients, as well as to reach out to potential clients and create more awareness for the firm.

    I have known and worked with James Goodnow for many years. He has advised me on a number of legal matters, and has always provided sound and expert advice. What truly makes James stand out is his approachability and availability. No matter how big or small, simple or complex, James puts the same amount of skill, hard work and dedication in every case he works on. He involves and engages his clients throughout the process, and communicates in a way the average person can understand. James has a way of making a confusing and intimidating situation easy to understand. He is genuinely concerned about the welfare of his clients, and works hard for the best possible outcome. This speaks volumes about what kind of person James is: highly skilled and professional, as well as personable and caring. He shows the best qualities in an attorney and a person.

    For James Goodnow, there is no case too big or to small. For him, he treats every case with care and expertise—which is exactly what he did with my case involving a traffic altercation in a church parking lot. While there were no injuries, there was extensive damage to my car. The other driver seemed willing to work with me, but after I filed a claim with their insurance company, I learned I was being held solely responsible for all the damages. I contacted James for help and he immediately got to work. He worked with the insurance company in getting a new investigator reassigned to my case and, after reviewing the reports and photos, the case was ruled in my favor.

    While this was a minor case compared to his other cases, I never felt it wasn’t a priority with him. James made sure to communicate exactly what was going on, what he needed from me, and how things were progressing. His attention to detail and thoroughness is impressive, as his is knowledge of the law. I highly recommend James to anyone looking for help with an injury case. The way he treats and handles his cases and his clients is unmatched.

  • Incredibly Helpful

    I was fortunate enough to meet James Goodnow when he was referred to me after I was in a car accident. My case was minor and, considering the larger, more high-profile cases I knew he worked on, I didn’t know if he could—or would—even help me. I called James and he responded right away. He was friendly, attentive and answered all my questions thoroughly. After discussing the specifics of my case, James knew of another attorney who was more in line with what I needed. I was impressed with the way he was genuinely interested in hearing about my case and finding a way to help me, whether it was with him or with another attorney. This speaks volumes of James’ genuine concern about people—clients or not—and making sure they get the legal help they need.

    I met James Goodnow last August after I was involved in a motorcycle accident. Referred to me by a family member, James reached out and from the moment we started talking, he explained—in a way I could easily understand—my options and the entire legal process. He did not speak in a way that was intimidating or confusing. Rather, he went through all the issues, answered all my questions, and addressed my concerns. I immediately felt I was in good hands.

    Throughout my case, James was available to me any time of the day or night. He always responded to my calls and emails, and communicated everything that was going on through the whole process. His team handled all the details, from the insurance to my medical bills. James turned a very traumatic experience into something that was much easier to handle and get through. I’m very grateful for his hard work, effort, knowledge and skill.

    I have known James Goodnow for 20 years and in that time, I have come to know him not only as a genuine and honest person, but also as a highly skilled attorney who takes his job—and the law—seriously. When I started my business, James provided legal advice and perspective that helped ensure my business’ viability, as well as my success as a business owner. Six years after opening my first business, he continues to be accessible, available and highly responsive when I need legal assistance and guidance. He is always open to bounce ideas off, and provides a legal viewpoint and expertise that is unsurpassed.

    In the types of cases he handles, James Goodnow is one of the most calm and collected attorneys I have ever seen in action. Dealing with his clients’ stress and emotion adds another layer of complexity to a case. James, however, handles these cases with the utmost patience and professionalism. In one such case, a family had just lost their father in an accidental shooting. James counseled the family not only on their legal recourse, but also—and most importantly—helped them through their grieving. This is what sets James apart.
