After having the best job a young lawyer could have as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, I began a private practice representing clients in civil and criminal cases utilizing the skills I learned as a federal prosecutor. As a result of hard work and preparation, I have always obtained the best possible results for my clients.

Mr. Goodman is a trial lawyer and handles a wide variety of civil and criminal cases. He has a particular focus in the defense and representation of product manufacturers in a range of industries, including the manufacturers and distributors of automobiles and other motor vehicles.
