This was my first ever car accident. I’d never gone through this experience before and boy, was I put through the ringer. I was hit by a semi truck changing lanes and pushed into another semi truck to my right. I was scared, confused and this was my very first car (which I loved, so I was very sad about it haha). The moment I spoke to the team and to Chris, I felt comforted. I felt supported and encouraged. The other guy’s insurance company that we were trying to settle with fired and rehired at least 5 different case workers for my case alone. Now the company is going under. Chris. Was. Awesome. They put red tape, hoops and so many other things in front of him and he just led me through it every step of the way. During this time (March 2019- December 2019) my car was classified as abandoned, had the wheel stollen off of it, the battery stolen off of it, and some of the items inside were also stolen while it sat on the lot. Someone from the tow yard decided to steal the title on the car. I moved states. I got married. I was taking classes. AND SO MANY OTHER THINGS. So everything that could have happened during this time DID. And Chris was ALWAYS on top of it. He was so communicative and explained things to me in a way I could understand. I could ALWAYS get a hold of Chris at least within the same day and that’s something I really appreciate. I’m very grateful and blessed by Chris and the team because of the way they “held my hand” from start to finish, even through the absolute WORST parts of it. Thank you Chris!!

Chris is the best Lawyer ever!
From start to finish, Chris was amazing. Since the moment we first spoke, my experience with his firm exceeded my expectations. He was prompt, smart, and responsive. I felt he genuinely cared about my wellbeing and my situation. Chris handled my case with professionalism and diligence. I can’t thank and praise him enough! Highly recommended! I want to say that not only will I use Chris again, (if needed) but I don’t doubt he will treat all his clients with the same high quality service he treated me with! God bless!

Review for Attorney Chris Goodnow
Chris one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Chris is very honest, respectful, caring down to earth type of guy. He worked very hard on my case from the beginning to the end. He was always was on time and fast at getting things done on my case. I would strongly recommend Chris for legal advice and help anytime.

Chris Goodnow Review
We used Chris for a dog bite claim. The initial call was great from the entry person to actually speaking with Chris on the initial call. We were sold immediately. From that point on we had no issues with our questions and his response(always within a couple of hours). He explained everything to us and we feel we got the best settlement we could get. Totally impressed with Chris and his ability to keep us informed and explain ALL of our options. I would recommend Chris and team to anyone!!

Top notch representation!
Chris is a thorough professional with tremendous communication skills. He and his team kept my daughter and myself in the loop the entire time. He was very concise and gave us the proper grasp of the situation. In the end he got my daughter compensation for a terrible accident and injuries. He is top notch.

Honest Helpful Attorney
Chris Goodnow is by far the most honest attorney I have ever met. He truly has his client's best interests at heart. Of no benefit to himself he helped me and my 3 children with our auto claim. Even after he withdrew himself (for our financial benefit) he still answered all my questions and called me back to help walk me through how to handle my situation. I can not recommend or thank him enough for all his help. Thank you Chris!

"I am admittedly biased because Chris is my brother, but I also believe that perspective is valuable because I know him as well as just about anyone. I have also had the privilege of working with Chris and his partner, Justin, as co-counsel on matters (I have also known Justin for many years). Having the benefit of these insights allows me to say without reservation that Chris is one of the most creative, thoughtful, hard working and passionate lawyers I know. Time and again I've seen him come up with innovative solutions that change the game in a positive way in cases, and his strong interpersonal skills make him confident and comfortable with clients and effective in delivering results. On a personal level, I'm proud to see what Chris has accomplished and how his deserved success is taking him and his practice to the highest levels. Above all of this, Chris is an exceptional person of character and integrity, and that comes through in every aspect of his practice."
