Family Law
Darla Goodwin is the best attorney to ever represent me. Her logic and polished technique in courtroom argument and subtle demeanor in and outside the courtroom were a beacon to how a fine attorney should perform - absolutely flawless. She was always modest and masterfully handled my cases' peculiarities with methodical direction. Her staff was immensely efficient and detail-oriented. Electronic communication to me was timely and complete. She and her staff easily responded to my boundaries and worked as collaboratively as possible with the opposing counsel to expedite the quickest, most prudent progression of issues in my cases. She can be the most direct, toughened tiger whenever the need arises to protect her client.

Darla gets any job done
Whether it is mediation, trial, or prenuptial, Darla is knowledgable and non-confrontational if possible but tough when necessary. You can trust her advise because she has a great deal of experience and a good network when she doesn't. She keeps everybody informed by using technology where possible.
