“After a change of management in my work of 14 years, I was terminated, and informed I would not be paid a large sum of commissions due. My work was my identity, and now in my 60’s with a disability, I was financially distressed and emotionally devastated. I needed an attorney. I spoke with many. Then I met Bob Goodman and his wonderful staff! He was realistic, direct, and honest. Most of all, he cared about my case, which lifted my concern. Within a few weeks, all was settled in mediation. I will always be grateful for the guidance and support during a very difficult time in my life!” SM, Executive Compensation Claim, 2014

“After I expressed my concerns to the CEO of my company about discrimination that I witnessed against older and foreign-born employees, the politics accelerated. I became isolated by management and removed from project work. The stress eroded my health and soon I looked for an attorney. I am grateful for the understanding and professionalism I encountered in Mr. Goodman. He helped clarify the situation and gave me time to decide how to proceed. He filed a claim with the Texas EEOC, negotiated an exit strategy, and secured a positive outcome for me.” NP, Employment Discrimination Matter, 2014
