David represented me when I was involved in a lengthy custody battle. He
explained all of my options and guided me through the entire process.
As my family law case was pending, I was also accused of a criminal offense.
David helped me deal with that situation as well and helped me to minimize
the impact of that accusation on my ability to see my daughter. Throughout
both proceedings, he allowed me to determine what my priorities were and
gave me the information that I needed to make my own decisions. With his
guidance, I feel like I was able to expedite both proceedings and, ultimately
arrive at a resolution that would allow me to maximize the time that I
have to spend with my daughter. I would recommend him to anyone who finds
themselves in a similar situation.

David was a great coach, friend and advocate for me while my case was pending.
In the end, we prevailed in mediation and arrived at an acceptable settlement.
During the complex and confusing litigation process, David was always
there. He returned phone calls, answered emails and did his best to keep
me calm walking me through my deposition and ultimately, successful mediation.
David is a top notch lawyer and outstanding person. I always felt he was
on my side and can recommend him without any hesitation.
I was lucky to have David D. Goodwin enter my dissolution/custody case
after another lawyer had initiated the process. He came recommended by
a friend as being a thoughtful, consistent, and diligent lawyer which
he was. He demonstrated a very strong professional manner in recruiting
and dealing with the auxiliary personnel involved with our case and had
an extensive knowledge of family law. He gave reasonable and practical
legal advice. He kept on schedule, prepping me for future big filings.
He demonstrated wisdom of what issues would be pertinent to address, and
how to achieve our desired end goals. David's dedication helped to
reassure me that my family would come out of the process in a place of
stability. In addition, he was able to ensure that all parties were respectfully
treated in the process, lending to an easier post-divorce interaction
between them. Even though this was a difficult time, I will always be
grateful to David for getting me through it smoothly in the most dignified
manner possible. I highly recommend David to anyone looking for a divorce
I was referred to David Goodwin, whom came highly recommended. I was going
through a very difficult time and he was very sensitive and understanding
regarding my circumstances. He went above and beyond in my case. He has
high attention to details, and his thoroughness and great follow through
showed all the way to the end. He is genuine and caring, and I truly am
grateful for all the hard work he put forth for my family and me. Thank
you so much David.
