"Hampton Roads has an immense Military presence and with that comes an immense divorce attorney presence. This leaves an active duty military person like myself overwhelmed with options, not knowing who would best represent me during one of the most trying times in my life.
If first impressions are indeed the biggest indicators of what to expect, then the front office personnel and the paralegals of this law firm do an outstanding job of displaying a professional, caring, and understanding attitude. This directly reflects the overall experience of working with Ms. Goodman and Mr. Pincus.
The consultation with Ms. Goodman was extremely impressive. I was able to leave the meeting very comfortable and confident that Ms. Goodman would be able to represent me fairly. Throughout our first conversation it was very apparent that she was not, in any way, going to let me go down any path that would not help the divorce case. Ms. Goodman was available to answer any questions that I had, no matter what time of day or how ignorant they may have been. Additionally, her research skills were immense. She was able to discover very important things for my divorce case. She also has a tenacity that is unparalleled. She would not settle for anything less than perfect from the opposing council, and if they even hinted at wavering on required information, she was on top of it in a heartbeat.
Both Ms. Goodman and Mr. Pincus have gone above and beyond with their care of me and my cases. They have litigated my divorce, multiple protective orders against my ex, and my criminal charges and I haven't "lost" one case yet. They have worked with my military command and kept them informed with letters and emails to my supervisors. They have even kept my family informed while I was locked up. I can't ever describe the immense debt and gratitude I have for this law firm. They kept me out of jail, sane, and employed during one of the most trying situations of my life. They have my highest recommendation and have even represented two friends of mine who have similar positive experiences with the law firm."
"A friend whom has no luck found a good attorney here. I went for a traffic violation. Charles was upfront and told me exactly what could, would and should happen and it did. Needed the appeal just as he said and the ticket was reduced to a non moving violation as he and I hoped. Never had a better traffic attorney. In Virginia Beach, YOU NEED ONE! This guy is it!"
"I was exhausted with my situational crisis by the time I got Attorney Adrienne Goodman on the phone. I was exasperated, circling back remembering details to give her, losing my train of thought, and near tears. Ms. Goodman gave me her full attention and let me get all of my anxieties out. She was very professional, extremely patient, and made me feel completely at ease. I took a deep breath and waited for what she was going to say- I thought she would think I was crazy! She asked me a few questions about specifics and then started with "the first thing we're going to do...." and I felt immediately assured that she had a plan of action! I was so nervous to even talk to an attorney at all, but she made me feel like I was talking to a friend with my best interests at heart. And she didn't like that I had been treated unfairly and this was how we were going to resolve the situation. She is great- with any luck this can be resolved outside of a courtroom. I recommend talking to her and seeing what she and this firm can do for you if you are in a jam. You never know unless you make that first call, and I am so very glad I did!"
