I contacted Annette as my husband had been violent. I was scared that he could make good on his promises to leave me homeless. I broke down during the consultation and she was patient and understanding. She recommended a couple of books, that taught me so much. I had married a sociopath and she knew it. She never oversold me, always have me the worst case scenario and went for the best.
Life is tons better now the divorce is past me. If I ever have to go back (which won't surprise me), I'm calling Annette back.

Ms. Goudy is truly one of the most amazing attorneys I have ever met. She has really preformed miracles in my custody case.
I retained Ms. Goudy in 2012 after my ex husband went into court and got a restraining order against me, giving him custody of 2 of my children.
I had taken a family trip up to northern California and at the last minute my ex decided he didn't want to go, but I went anyway. He knew where I was and when I would be back, but he lied to the court and claimed I kidnapped my children. By the time I got to Northern California he had cleaned our bank accounts out and shut of my credit card leaving me and my 3 children with absolutely no funds whatsoever. I had to borrow money to get home.
I contacted Ms. Goudy while I was on my way home and she instructed me to contact the police when I got back to Orange County. However, when I contacted the authorities I found out that my ex had gone into court without notifying me and had gotten a restraining order based on lies, and the restraining order granted him sole physical/sole legal custody of my two daughters. The police came and took my girls.
It was at that point that I knew I had to obtain legal counsel, so I retained Ms. Goudy. We went in ex parte the following day. Not only was his restraining order vacated, but in turn the judge granted me my own restraining order returning my girls to me. Even though she didn't have to, Ms. Goudy went with me to get my girls. When my mother in law refused to give them to me Ms. Goudy called the police and waited 3 hours with me until they came!
I don't know where my children and I would be today without her, but we wouldn't be together. She is truly amazing and such a God send.

When I hired Annette to handle my divorce I was overwhelmed. After a year of trying to fight my ex husband on my own I had become a basket case. I was breaking out in hives, and I couldn't sleep. I almost lost my job because I was missing so much work due to stress. I had consulted 4 different attorneys and while I thought I'd be relieved after each consultation, I wasn't. Each time I left an attorney's office, I was even more of a basket case. But Annette was different. After our first meeting I felt such a sense of relief! She was easy to talk to and understood what I was going through.
I no longer have to worry about anything that has to do with my horrendous battle in court. She is always there to calm me down, and not to mention she knows her way around a courtroom. My case and my life have completely turned around thanks to her.
She is one of the best Attorneys in Orange County and I would recommend her services to anyone dealing with a case of their own. I promise you won't be disappointed, I know I'm not!

I STRONGLY endorse this lawyer!! Ms. Goudy worked for our firm in the early 1990's supporting me in my litigation practice and was a most valued member of our team. She was always prepared, was excellent with clients, and generally made our firm look good. I regretted her leaving the area and loosing her from our team.
