James Goodnow, a Harvard Law grad, practices in the area of plaintiffs' catastrophic injury and wrongful death litigation.* Newsweek showcased him as one of "20 Leaders" among "Plaintiffs' Trial Lawyers" in the United States. Attorney at Law Magazine named him and his colleague Marc Lamber the "#1 personal injury team in the U.S." He was part of the legal team that secured one of the largest verdicts in U.S. history: $410 million.
He has been featured in stories run by leading publications and news organizations around the world, including The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, ABC News, USA Today, The Financial Post, The ABA Journal (in cover story, named one of "America's Techiest Lawyers"), and many more. He was featured on Apple.com for innovative uses of the iPad.
He has achieved the highest possible peer-review rating: AV Preeminent. Opposing attorneys call him a "leader in litigation" who "has an extraordinary ability to grasp complex legal concepts" and who "takes on the hard, important cases fearlessly." He was named a Super Lawyers "Rising Star."
