Southfield, MI (PRWEB) June 17, 2014
Goodman Acker, P.C., is pleased to announce that Partner and Attorney Barry J. Goodman has been named as a 2014 Michigan Super Lawyer in the area of personal injury law. This is Goodman’s eighth consecutive year for being awarded with this honor.
“I knew I wanted to become a plaintiff’s lawyer from the time I was a child, and my father, a postal employee, was injured in a traffic accident while on the job. His resulting injuries left him dependent on federal workers’ compensation for the rest of his life. I did not think justice was provided to him, and I did not want that to happen to others,” Goodman says. “The most fulfilling aspect of my life is working on behalf of injured clients and helping them to obtain the justice they deserve. It is a great honor to not only be named a 2014 Michigan Super Lawyer but also to be recognized with this honor for eight consecutive years.”
