      Robert is an excellent attorney. I have worked with him as opposing counsel when I was a defense attorney and as co-counsel now as plaintiff's counsel. He has extensive trial experience and adheres to the highest ethical standards.

      After representing me after I fell down the stairs at work and injured my back, I would recommend the Goings Law Firm to handle any personal injury matter. Robert and Jessica made me feel like my case mattered to them and that my goals were their goals. They were tireless advocates for me yet they were also willing to be upfront and honest in their assessments of my options going forward. I never felt pressured to choose one course of action over the other. They treated my case like their own. Read less
