Mitch Abeita was an excellent choice for a personal injury attorney. I always felt like top priority. He got me several thousand more dollars than what I was expecting.

NB, Personal Injury, 2022

Clark Will assisted me in obtaining approval of a religious exemption for a COVID vaccination mandate imposed by my employer. I appreciated his work in laying out the foundational argument for this approval in a clear, concise manner accessible to HR decision-makers. As an attorney employed by a large international company, I appreciate that Clark was required to do time-consuming legal research, for which he charged me a flat rate that was extremely reasonably priced. I have referred two people to him already.

MHL, COVID Religious Exemption, 2022

We hired Mitch Abeita after my husband’s car accident. We had never hired an attorney before. It was very easy working with Mitch. He kept us advised at all times, proactively reached out to us, and explained everything in detail. We recommend his services.

EN, Personal Injury, 2021

Several professional colleagues recommended Bob Goodman to me. I picked him because he had similar values to mine. His educational background was also like mine. He knew about my company and had experience with that firm. We got to know each other, I felt that he personally cared about my situation and I trusted his judgment. My former company made serious omissions with my severance package. They were taking so much time getting back to us that Bob took the lead and wrote a draft for them to use to correct their mistake. He researched situations similar to mine. He spoke directly with them on my behalf and negotiated a vastly improved severance package. Bob was highly motivated to get a fair result for me. He was enthusiastic about my outcome. The severance package that Bob helped to achieve was likely the best possible outcome for me.

AB, Senior Business Operations Executive, 2021

I have come to Bob Goodman three different times to assist me with two severance negotiations and a discrimination claim with three different companies. Before each occasion, I’d hired a different attorney before seeing Bob. Each time, I was disappointed with my previous attorney and turned to Bob who helped me resolve my claims to my satisfaction. He understands the landscape of the executive workplace. The most recent matter was in 2021: Bob dove into my situation and explained the pros and cons of each detail so I could make decisions.

The second time I consulted Bob was in 2018 and involved a complex discrimination matter. He stands apart in his knowledge of employment law, which the first attorney I consulted did not grasp. My former attorney worked on that case for two years until I lost hope. I was distraught and consulted with Bob, who settled the matter in just 30 days. He understood my situation and put it down on paper better than I could have done.

The first time I consulted Bob was in 2016. He helped me resolve a severance negotiation. Bob is a brilliant lawyer. He is objective. I knew he was going to do the right thing for me. I literally sighed and thought that I was going to be okay now. Bob has empathy. He is the calm in the storm. I’m a huge fan.

NLM, Executive Severance and Employee Discrimination Matters, 2016, 2018 and 2021

I just wanted to say to you, Bob Goodman, that you represented my husband in a lawsuit against GTE North in 1998. I was only the girlfriend then, but we married in 2005. You got a CSA for him from GTE. He always appreciated the work you did for him. My husband passed away in 2020, after a brief battle with lung cancer. I just wanted to say thank you for being a light of good in his world.

KG, ERISA Section 510 Compromise Settlement Agreement, Employee Benefits Matter, 2021

Ted Anderson and his team treated me with respect. He was knowledgeable of the law, quickly grasped my situation, and had a plan to solve it. He understood my needs and saw what was best for me. He proceeded with compassion, integrity, and emotional intelligence. He is an accomplished lawyer who instilled confidence in me as a client, which was important, since I was wronged by my company which has many resources, and he strove for fairness. I wish Ted Anderson continued success in helping people who feel helpless.

NS, Long-term Disability Case, 2019

Bob Goodman listened with caring and realistic insight. He never promised extraordinary settlements. He was very respectful of the opposing party. In any conflict with an employer, it is so important to look at a case unemotionally, and to focus on an outcome based on evidence you can prove. Providing you have documentation and an ethical attorney, you are in good hands. I am confident that any potential client of Bob Goodman will readily see the results he can deliver. I was quite satisfied with the outcome! This is what you get with Bob. Someone who cares.

DG, Sexual Harassment and Retaliation Case, 2019

Bob Goodman and I made an excellent attorney-client team. He puts his clients and their families first. He was fair, objective, and responsive. Bob kept me in the loop and up-to-date about the happenings of my case. He made me feel like a valued team member. I would recommend Bob Goodman to anyone in need of assistance with an employment law matter.

H Richards, Wrongful Termination, Retaliation, Violation of the Texas Whistleblower Act, 2019

I would recommend Nick O’Kelly to anyone who needs a rock to lean on during a lawsuit. My dignity was assaulted by my former employer, but I prevailed thanks to Nick. He treated me with the utmost professionalism. He helped me take the emotion out of the equation. His experience, professionalism and experience made my case bearable. I am grateful for his partnership during this difficult time in my life.

I received the checks today! Bill Masterson, thank you for EVERYTHING you’ve done for me! I appreciate y’all more than words can say. Thank you for getting me through this ordeal. You were compassionate. I NEVER felt like my case didn’t matter. Y’all called back to answer all my questions. I can’t say enough GREAT things about you!

CNH, Disability Discrimination, Retaliation, Hostile Work Environment, 2018

Initially, I was nervous about the prospect of going up against the corporate power of my company, but with Ted Anderson as my counsel I never felt disadvantaged. Ted guided me, from behind the scene, throughout the entire process of the executive compensation negotiation. His demeanor and knowledge helped me bring this to a successful resolution. As an executive vice president, I’ve handled separation agreements with my employees on behalf of my company. Dealing with my own separation agreement against my company was a new experience. I took comfort knowing I had extra strength with Ted Anderson on my side in the background.

MT, Former Executive Vice President, Executive Compensation and Separation Agreement, 2018

I met resistance when I contacted my former employer about the defamation on my FINRA Form U-5. I had to take legal action. I needed a FINRA attorney. After an extensive search I found Bob Thornton of Kilgore & Kilgore. He helped me navigate this difficult process and provided emotional support. Bob was focused and compassionate. He led my FINRA arbitration hearing to a successful conclusion. This included expunging the false and defamatory information they put on my FINRA Form U-5 and receiving compensatory damages.

CC, Former Bank Vice President, FINRA Arbitration Process and FINRA Form U5 Defamation Expungement, 2018

In my manager role, I reported some unethical behavior of my supervisor to the HR manager, but the problem was not addressed. So, I took the matter to Corporate. A different supervisor was assigned who made work miserable for me. Then, he terminated me. I’d been with that employer for 20 years and received high performance metrics. I reached out to Bob Goodman. He told me of the best course of action then worked diligently to negotiate my severance package. I had a lot of questions along the way. Bob was responsive, even after hours and on weekends. He was compassionate, professional and easy to speak with. I highly recommend Bob Goodman and Kilgore & Kilgore.

DM, Employment Retaliation, Wrongful Termination, Severance Package, 2018

I lost my entire career by that wrongful termination report in the FINRA U-5 Form from my former employer. I was not prepared, emotionally or mentally. One day I was on top, the next day I was in complete despair. But I was in good hands with a team that advised and guided me and my wife with empathy and confidence. From my first visit with Bill Masterson, I knew I was in good hands. The Kilgore & Kilgore team guided me to victory and the recovery of my career. Thank you to Bill Masterson and the entire Kilgore legal team.

LLK, FINRA Arbitration, Defamation and Expungement,
Former Wealth Management Team Supervisor, Major Insurance Company, 2018

When it came to my race discrimination and retaliation case, Ted Anderson and the Kilgore & Kilgore law team focused on me as a person, the merits of my case, and the importance of equal justice. I found Ted Anderson to be professional, caring, and principled. He listened to my concerns and offered sound legal advice. I highly recommend Ted Anderson and Kilgore & Kilgore. The firm is excellent, and Ted Anderson gets results.

SL, Discrimination and Retaliation Case, 2018

PS, Employment Discrimination – Disability, 2017

After I was wrongfully terminated because of my pregnancy, Ted Anderson, Bess Masterson, and Pat Milfeld helped me navigate the EEOC process and throughout litigation. Our case was settled during the first day of trial, after the jury was seated. It was such a relief to resolve this case, which was very emotional for me and my family, and to move on knowing that I was vindicated, thanks to Kilgore & Kilgore.

KH, Pregnancy Discrimination Case, 2017

I was very pleased with the professionalism and knowledge of Ted Anderson and his team. He led me through a most difficult time. Ted Anderson was available to answer my questions even after normal business hours. He listened, set the best course of action, and made sure I was informed along the way. I would highly recommend Ted and his team to anyone in a legal dispute.

SS, Employment Agreement, 2017

Ted Anderson is great to work with. He is professional, thorough and efficient. He closed out my case much sooner than expected. Ted Anderson did a great job of obtaining payment of my unpaid commissions and 401K contributions, as well as renegotiating my non-compete. His advice and timeliness were commendable. I would highly recommend him as a legal partner!

DR, Unpaid Commissions, Non-compete Agreement, 2017

As soon as I met Nick O’Kelly I felt more at ease. He provided feedback that was balanced and practical. He represented me will full confidence and knowledge of the law, but also with humility. His corporate experience was invaluable. He anticipated outcomes with multiple options. He didn’t intimidate me. I enjoyed working with Nick O’Kelly and would call upon him again if needed.

DM, Executive Compensation and Severance Agreement, 2016

When you are in water too deep, it is good to be with someone who knows how to swim. Bill Masterson and Bob Thornton worked hard for me and my family. I was very pleased with their services. I did not have a good opinion of lawyers prior to working with them. But now I have closure, and my family is financially and emotionally secure. Bill Masterson has integrity and brought a breadth and depth of experience in all aspects of the real estate transaction involved, including market values as well as oil and gas versus surface rights. I am very grateful to Bill Masterson, Bob Thornton and their team.

MLR, Estate Litigation Case, 2016

I searched online for an attorney and found Bob Goodman. He called me to his office and I told him about my problem. He said there a way we can go forward with a discrimination case against an employer. He was polite, kind, intelligent, and informative. He described the points of my legal argument and got to work immediately. He encouraged me to hang in there for more than a year. He worked for the maximum benefit. He told me what he would do and he did it. I would recommend him.

RM, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Employment Discrimination, 2016

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

Thank you for taking my case and believing in me. A great deal of my recovery from everything that happened is a direct result of being given the opportunity to fight the good fight. Thank you for the friendship, strength and incredible legal representation.

Laura, Sexual Harassment Case Settled on the Eve of the Trial, 2006

I never got the chance to offer my deepest gratitude for what you and your team did for me 16 years ago. You drove me home after the trial. You said, “We believe you Jeff.” Those four words were powerful. They gave me hope and boosted my confidence. In the midst of loss and pain, you offered me a way to walk through it with my head held high. Thank you for standing beside me. I want you to know how deeply engrained those four words are for me for all my life. Thanks Bess. I’ll always believe in you, your team and Kilgore & Kilgore.
