Maggie graduated from Washington State University with a degree in political science. She then attended Seattle University School of Law, graduating magna cum laude in 2012. During law school, she was selected to join the Seattle University Law Review, the school’s oldest and most prestigious legal journal.
After graduating law school, she served as a judicial law clerk for Judge Bruce I. Weiss in Snohomish County Superior Court. Judge Weiss, a former family law attorney himself, taught Maggie the practice from his chambers while she witnessed dozens of family law proceedings and trials in his courtroom. Her experience in Judge Weiss’s courtroom gave her valuable insight into how the court considers and interprets all types of legal matters.
Maggie practiced family law for many years on the Westside of the state before relocating to the Yakima Valley. In addition to her family law experience, she has significant experience in negotiating and litigating personal injury matters. Her areas of practice include all areas of family law, such as divorce, committed intimate relationships, child custody, child support, parenting plan proceedings and modifications, domestic violence restraining orders, and guardianships (formerly third party custody proceedings). She also practices personal injury law.
In support of her alma mater, she sits as a judge for the mock trial competitions at Seattle University School of Law. She regularly volunteers her time to provide legal advice on family law matters to low-income citizens. She sits on the Board of Directors for Yakima County Volunteer Attorney Services and serves as Treasurer.
Maggie has been selected several times as a Super Lawyer “Rising Star,” an honor given to only 2.5% of attorneys in the state. Locally, she has been recognized in the Yakima Herald’s “Women in Business” and “39 under 39.”
Maggie is married to Brett Goodman, who is also a local attorney. Their son and dog take up most of her free time, but she also enjoys working out, kayaking, traveling, gardening, cooking, and entertaining family and friends.
