“There are few things more stressful and despairing than being introduced to the justice system via a DUI arrest. Unfortunately, I was introduced this way. I started making phone calls almost immediately after my long weekend in jail, met with several lawyers, but quickly chose Justin Goodman to represent me.
In our initial meeting, Justin walked me through the workings of the entire process, reviewed my case, and discussed possible defenses and realistic outcomes. He took note of my criteria for an “ideal” situation, understood my priorities, answered my questions, and lifted the burden of what seemed like impending doom.
Throughout the negotiation process, Justin and his staff were available if I had questions or concerns, and kept me informed on key dates, events, and new information. He took the time to make sure I understood every step of the process and spelled things so that I could make informed decisions. He was truly at my disposal, often answering questions that I had already asked 5 times. Business is obviously good, but in any given conversation, you are the center of his attention.
Justin was able to successfully negotiate my DUI, Hit & Run/Failure to Render Aid, Reckless Driving, Failure to Maintain Lane, Improper Lane Change down to a Reckless charge, general moving violation and community service. Justin not only far exceeded my initial expectations, but also left the judge impatiently waiting as he negotiated a (literal) last minute change to my deal as I requested it. He owned the courtroom.
I hired Justin to get me the best deal possible, and not only did he do that, but he also gave me peace of mind throughout the entire process. In my opinion, that is invaluable. This process is so overwhelming and complicated, looking back, I can’t imagine not having Justin at my defense.
If you find yourself in legal trouble, no matter your financial situation, your skepticism, I recommend you at least have a consultation with Justin about your options. “
