Welcome to GoodmanLaw: Goodman Law Firm
Our Prescott, AZ lawyer has been serving clients with legal matters in Central and Northern Arizona since 1978. We provide legal services in the areas of business, estate and property law, Probate, Quiet Title, Wrongful death and fatal accident cases. We also collect promissory notes and other debts. We provide representation in solving disputes, obtaining something that belongs to you, and in litigation either as a plaintiff or as a defendant. We also advise on legal matters, solve problems and draft documents such as contracts, powers of attorney, trusts, and wills.
A good, thorough investigation is often the key to winning a case, and many lawyers do not investigate thoroughly enough. Cases are won on the facts, and the facts cannot be told unless you discover what they are. A good, early investigation will assist in preserving evidence so that it is available years down the road – when you need it. We investigate our cases. Whether for plaintiff or defendant, we bring substantial experience to the courtroom.
We represent spouses, children and other family members of people who died as a result of the negligence or other wrongful conduct of another. These cases are usually called wrongful death cases by the lawyers and judges who deal with them. Wrongful death cases require special expertise, compassion, and skill. Prompt investigation and preservation of evidence are essential. For more information about wrongful death cases, click here.
In litigation, we have obtained million dollar jury verdicts for plaintiff clients, including one of the largest tort jury verdicts ever awarded in Yavapai County. We have also successfully defended clients against exposure to claims for millions of dollars, saving our clients millions. After winning unanimous defense verdicts in a multi-million dollar lawsuit before a jury in Yavapai county, we prevailed on the same claims in a second lawsuit filed by the same plaintiffs over the same transaction, in Maricopa county.
Need help administering a trust, help to remove a trustee or obtaining your fair share of trust assets? We represent trustees and beneficiaries, helping them to solve their trust issues.
We also represent people in contested and uncontested Probate matters, including informal proceedings and supervised administration. The journey often begins with a title company or bank demanding “letters.” Even though “letters” are demanded, sometimes a non-probate solution is available.
