My experience with Ed was top-notch. Caring, kind and committed, he delivered valuable knowledge and expertise and guided us through the entire process. I would recommend him over and over again.

The tragic death of our son left me in complete despair. I was selected to be the executor of his estate and I was neither emotionally prepared for it, nor legally knowledgeable enough for the difficulties that arose. Looking back over the years since Jeff’s death in 2012, the one fortunate happening, was finding a lawyer as qualified as Mr. Goodson. But legal knowledge is not all that Lawyer Goodson brought to my sad table. Whatever my problems, be they emotionally charged or legal, Ed was there to make sense of the situation. I could not be happier or more thankful for his help through this most troubling time.

I recently worked with Ed on a difficult matter and he quickly helped resolve the issue that has lingered with other attorneys for sometime. I found him effective and responsive and not "overworking" the case.

I commend Mr. Goodson for discussing the fact that it is possible to hire a probate lawyer in California for less than the maximum allowable fee set by statute. I practice probate law in Nevada where my firm of Reed & Mansfield successfully offers discount rates and excellent personal service for probate cases. Occasionally I get clients who have to do probates in both California and Nevada and often these clients have been brainwashed by California lawyers that "all lawyers in California charge the same amount for a probate," so no point price shopping.
