"Mr. Goodwin is an excellent attorney and I am so glad that I chose him. He is all of the items starred above at the highest rating. He has a way of explaining legal jargon and grey areas of law to the untrained legal mind in an effective clear concise manner. If 5 is the highest score, I rate him a 10. With him, you know all-is-well!"
