Our Methods

Our Methods

Collaborative Law

Collaborative practice exchanges the adversarial nature of traditional litigation for a solution-focused discussion that respects the needs of both parties. Rather than focusing on who is responsible for a legal issue, collaborative law looks for the parties interests and needs in order to find solutions that leave everyone satisfied. Learn more about how collaborative law could help your family or commercial dispute today.

Mediation

In most legal disputes, both sides want to come to an agreement that minimizes legal expenses and saves time. When this is the case, mediation may be the right choice for you or your business.

I have the greatest respect for Mr. Goodwin. He is an honest, fair and dedicated counsel that will use every situation legally available to properly protect your rights… and get a fair settlement. I would trust this man with any legal issues I should encounter.

Ray’s unique skills and dedication to his clients’ interests will serve any client well, whether it be as primary counsel in a collaborative dispute resolution process, as “settlement counsel” in a hard-fought litigation matter or as a third-party neutral in a formal or informal mediation setting.
D. Rownd
I really appreciated Ray being upfront with me during my divorce. He was always truthful about my case, my rights and even when I did not want to hear things, he was able to be open and honest without judgment. Ray was quick to reply when needed and knew the system well to know when to back off and wait.
