Mr. Goforth and his team took my rather complicated property settlement case and completed it quickly. I was kept informed and felt very well represented by Mr. Goforth's firm. My property was sold quickly and I felt like he represented me and my concerns extremely well. Also, he sought ways to make my legal fees reasonable. From the beginning, I felt reassured that he was on top of my case and would stay on it to completion, despite the fact that I was out of state. The team of people that he chose to work on my case were efficient and helpful.
My family lawyer found Mr. Goforth and highly recommended him. Although I have never met Mr. Goforth (only communicating by email and telephone) I knew he was taking care of EVERYTHING. i HIGHLY RECOMMEND him and will use him again if I need him. I did not spend any sleepless nights worrying about what was happening. That is worth alot.

Aaron is a quick study and capable of handling complex litigation with relative ease. He has an excellent demeanor and a straight forward approach to complicated issues. He is able to quickly sort relevant from non-relevant information and capable of producing a lot of work product in very reasonable number of hours. I would have no hesitation in hiring Aaron for any business related matter.
John Zeimantz, Commercial real estate Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse Aaron. I’ve seen his work in cases where I have represented other parties. Aaron provides excellent representation to his clients. He is well prepared, argues his clients position effectively and backs up his argument with well written pleadings.
Gregory Hesler, Energy and utilities Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I have worked with Aaron on several occasions--both as opposing counsel and behalf of co-defendants. He exhibits a high degree of professionalism and advocacy on behalf of his clients. I would, and have, recommended him to individuals/entities in need of legal representation.
