|Change of Custody/Relocation||I won! This was probably the biggest case of my career and I was able to get Father custody and relocate the child back to AZ.|
|Relocation||I won. The court allowed Mother to relocate with the child and did not change custody.|
|Change of custody||I won both times. The court gave Father custody of his children and admonished Mother for her behavior, and kept the custody with Father three years later.|

I hired this attorney in 2008. In one year she charged me over $101,000.00. Every time a critical juncture arrived, she threatened to withdraw unless I put more money into my retainer. RUN as fast as you can from this attorney. She has destroyed my life and cost me close to 1 Million dollars and counting. She authored a decree that favored my EX wife and she was supposed to be MY attorney. During mitigation, she was in a hurry to get to the Elton John concert. Tell your neighbors and tell your friends to RUN!! Check her State Bar records, she is unethical, immoral and unprofessional. She charged me to banter with opposing counsel and she charged me to destroy my own life by retaining her and I am now broke and a visitor in my daughter's life because of this women! RUN!!! Don't look back!

TESTIMONIAL FOR ATTORNEY ANGELA WILSON-GOODMAN
I am very pleased to offer this testimonial for Attorney Angela Wilson-Goodman.
Not long ago Mrs. Wilson-Goodman represented me in a very hotly contested divorce. The biggest point of contention was visitation with our minor child. My ex-wife was offering very minimal visitation and I simply wanted a fair and equitable amount of visitation time.
Mrs. Wilson-Goodman proved to be a very staunch supporter of father’s rights as she very effectively and aggressively fought for my rights as a father and ultimately the Court ordered what we considered a fair and equitable visitation schedule.
Another thing I experienced while represented by Mrs. Wilson-Goodman, was the fact that she took the time to get to know you and treated you like a person, not just another case file.
Mrs. Wilson-Goodman’s office staff has always been very courteous and professional and the billing has always been accurate.
I would heartily recommend Mrs. Wilson-Goodman, especially to father’s who want fair visitation schedules as she is a very strong advocate of father’s rights.

My husband first entered Angela Wilson-Goodman’s office frantic over his divorce going to court without anyone representing him. She kindly listened to his situation and bravely took his case. She heard what my husband was had to say about the personality of his ex-wife and what led up to the divorce and that this was going to be a hard case. She did not shrink back from the challenge. I feel that if my husband would have had Angela for his attorney from the beginning of the divorce, much angst could have been avoided and thousands of dollars could have been saved.
My husband’s first attorney listened to what he said, but did not hear him. His case proceeded as though it was not any different than any other amicable divorce case. Direction was given and decisions were made during the process that set this highly contested divorce to be as difficult as my husband had expected. Six months later, the exasperated attorney wanted my husband to give into all of the ex-wife’s demands just to get it over with.
I would recommend Angela Wilson Goodman to anyone needing a great divorce attorney, but especially for anyone who knows that the divorce will be an extremely difficult process. Angela truly listens to her clients and their needs. She is honest about her expectations and potential outcomes. She does not back down from a hard fight. If there are children involved, she is a devoted advocate to provide what is in the child’s best interest. Angela is responsive to her clients. Angela prepares her clients for what to expect. Angela is knowledgeable about her case law and is very effective in the court room.
She and her staff provide world class quality customer service. An example of this was when my husband’s ex-wife refused to exchange the child per the divorce decree for Christmas vacation. Another game was being played to reduce the amount of time that the child was with Father. This occurred on a Friday night and the police were involved and so rather than be arrested, my husband gave up his visitation time over the weekend. Mother stated that the Christmas break did not start, per the school schedule until Monday. The next day that Court was open, Angela sat in the courthouse all day waiting to see the judge for emergency orders. The judge decided that Father should have had that parenting time.
We experienced nothing but the best service and advocacy from Angela Wilson-Goodman and recommend her to anyone needing a divorce attorney.

Wilson-Goodman & Fong we would like to thank you and your staff for helping us though out our journey to ensure the safety and security of my three young children. When my ex wife and I were divorced years ago we agreed to have joint custody with her as the primary custodian. Approx 2 years later my children were showing signs of abuse physically and emotionally as well as signs of neglect while visiting with us. My ex wife had made changes and many lifestyle choices ultimately effecting my children. My new wife had worked for a shelter with several resources and believed it would be useful to ensure their safety. After all the doors closed with no success we were very discouraged and felt as though we were victim of an unsuccessful system. We decided to obtain your services and for the first time someone sincerely listened, cared and gave us hope. Wilson-Goodman & Fong were very professional and treated us with respect during a very hard and stressful time, and was awarded custody of my children. I have continued to need their services with ongoing custody issues over the years and have always found them to be very honest and strait forward always looking out for my best interests. I trust that I will always get nothing but the best when needing the services of Wilson-Goodman & Fong.

Angela is a pleasure to work with as opposing counsel. She is honest and straightforward, and does not play games. She recognizes and fights for the best interests of the children. Angela is also very helpful whenever I need advice on a family law case. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing family law representation.
