Distinguished Atlanta Personal Injury Attorneys

Our Attorneys

In 1989, the Goodman brothers joined forces to create their own law firm. The philosophy was simple: treat clients right and fight as hard as possible to achieve great results. We renew that commitment with every new client we represent.
Michael & Barry Goodman

Michael Goodman

Partner Lawyer

Mike has been representing victims of injustice since 1982. He has helped thousands of individuals and families who have suffered significant injuries and death from auto collisions, defective products, unsafe premises, medical malpractice, and workers’ compensation. Mike also represents individuals fighting for their fair share of contested Wills and Trusts.
Mike believes it is his mission to level the playing field for those who have been injured through no fault of their own. Once Mike accepts a case, it will be investigated thoroughly and prepared for trial.

Mike has built a successful law practice through the kind referrals of many satisfied clients. He strives to build a relationship with each of his clients through meetings, phone calls, texts, and emails. Clients always have Mike’s cell number.
