I had two cases with this attorney, and they were very professional. On the second case they fixed what another attorney screwed up, and I am very satisfied with the results. I highly recommend this attorney.

Jack has been my attorney for just about a year now. Jack is my third attorney on this case. I think that puts me in a spot to to know a Great attorney when I get to know one. My case has been going on for 12 years and in that years period he's already started to fix what the other two screwed up!! Jack told me from the start that this could take a while and I'm fine with that. After all I would rather have a GREAT attorney do the job and do it right, than a average attorney that does a hurry up job to get a settlement so he can get paid.
Just in the short time I've been with Jack I can see he and his staff are about Quality and not Quantity. Attorneys get busy that's a fact and if you have a attorney that's not busy you better wonder why. Jacks gotten more done in the year I've been with him than than the two other attorney did in the 11 years they had the case. In that time I've seen the workers comp system change and it has made it harder for the attorney so Jack speaks the truth when he say worker comps cases have gotten harder.
To Jack and his entire staff thank you for everything you have done so far. I know we still have a ways to go and I have all the confidence in the world in you and your staff. I will recommend Jack to anyone I know and those reading these reviews. Rmember in my opinion Jack is Quality over Quantity.
Thank you again Jack and the entire staff
As I know my case isn't the easiest.
A greatful client

I was referred to Jack Goodchild through another coworker. I was injured while working for a large company and have been harassed through my current employment until I retained Jack. I am still in the process of seeing doctors and getting treatment for my injuries. I could not say enough great stuff about Jack and his office people. If I don't hear back from them on a question I have the same day it always will be the next business day. Jack got me a lifetime medical through the process and I am very satisfied!!
