During a long, drawn-out estate settlement, I was very fortunate to have Albert Goodwin as my attorney. He is extremely competent, straightforward, and very effective. Albert was my confidant and legal guide as he tackled my case. I always felt that he was looking out for my interests and giving me sound advice. Prior to Albert's involvement, my case had come to a halt. He moved it along and brought it to a satisfying conclusion. I attribute my eventual success solely to Albert's actions. I greatly appreciate all that he did for me. Russell Kivatisky, Ph.D.
My husband died in Australia on a scuba diving vacation that turned out to be to much for his heart, leaving a substantial estate.<br />Before I was aware of what was going on his sister rushed in naming herself next of kin, claiming that her brother was divorced attempting to cheat me out of my inheritance.<br />I was devastated at the loss of my a strained yet very loved husband.<br />I spoke to some attorneys in the state of North Carolina where I reside however I was informed that they were unable to take the case as my husband's estate was in New York, therefore I would have to acquire a New York attorney.<br />I went on the internet and just prayed that the lord would bless me with a good attorney, I was blessed with not just a good attorney but a great one.<br />A tearful frantic call to a busy Albert Goodwin, who to my surprise answered his phone, after all it was after hours but this man was still there, upon hearing my situation told me he would move some things around and would be happy to take my case, I think he disliked the way I was being treated.<br />This is a great firm they helped me every step of the way even though I lived out of state.<br />Mr. Goodwin took control of this situation we became a team, he requested documents once he had those documents my worries were over, soon I was executive of my husbands estate executing his wishes as I know he would have wanted.<br />I will never forget Mr. Goodwin's last words to some people we will not name, "After All She Is His Wife"<br />Thank you for everything.<br />Mrs. Michele Hines Diaconescu.
He took a case that another lawyer refused to take and got us a settlement. Very happy with his abilities as a lawyer.
Mr. Albert Goodwin, Esq., represented me as the beneficiary of a trust. This very complicated & difficult issue had been unresolved for 24 years!<br /><br />I finally received my rightful share, only after Mr. Goodwin used his intelligence, observational skills & foresight to win. He has excellent morality...something sadly missing in most people in the 21st Century.<br /><br />I am thankful & grateful I hired Mr. Goodwin as my attorney. He went above & beyond to win. I highly recommend his services.
Mr. Albert Goodwin, Esq. does your legal matters correctly the first time. He does his legal work in a very effective and sensitive way. In my case the legal work was for a will, health care proxy and power of attorney.
