Guardianship for disabled daughter
My husband and I were nervous about the guardianship process. We had heard horror stories of the lengthy process and the hoops they make people jump through. I cannot begin to tell you what having such a professional, pleasant group of individuals helping us with this has meant to our family. From the receptionist to the paralegals, we just don't think we have met a nicer group of people. Dan himself is just such a quality individual and having him in our corner made everything so easy. We definitely recommend this office for anyone involved in guardianship and estate planning. We will be back with our own needs. Thanks so much!

A "lawyer's lawyer" is a fine thing
I am an attorney myself, so you can likely imagine that I am a hard customer when it comes to selecting counsel. But, to put together an estate plan and trusts for my family, I did not want an amateur, and I did not want just anyone. Mr. Goodsell first came to my attention when I met one of his associates, for whom I developed a deep level of respect. Well, the professional apple does not fall far from the tree, and Mr. Goodsell impressed me deeply with his knowledge, responsiveness, and attention to educating me as a client. I am proud to have retained him, and I am delighted with what he has provided to us thus far. When a lawyer recommends his own lawyer to you, you ought to take that with some weight.
