who truly care about our clients and their wellbeing and will do everything

We make the following guarantees to our clients:
- We will care

We Are Honest
Honesty is a bit of a forgotten virtue in a modern world that favors image
and profitability over substance. At Goodman Acker P.C., however, honest
dealings with clients is a hallmark of our practice. This means, first
and foremost, giving you a straightforward appraisal of your case in language
you can understand. As a potential client, our goal is to educate you—without
language steeped in legalese—on your legal rights and options.
We won't guarantee success in order to secure your case. But if you
do decide to let us represent you, we will promise to pour all of our
professional resources into restoring your life to how it was before your
injury. You'll be able to reach us at any time with a question and
can expect a prompt, honest answer in return. In practicing honesty, we
also expect it from the parties we oppose. Defendants and their insurance
companies may not be forthcoming and forthright, but one way or another,
we'll find a way to bring the truth to light.
We Are Ethical
We believe in setting right the wrongs that have been visited on clients.
Personal injury law is predicated on the idea that those who are victims
of others' negligence have a right to compensation aimed at making
them whole—or as whole as possible—again. The law isn't
perfect, but it is still a powerful avenue for justice. Those who harm
others should be held accountable, and our Detroit personal injury attorneys
seek accountability for careless and reckless actors.
Law without ethics is not possible. In practicing law ethically, we seek
to maintain the credibility of a system that allows people with the bad
luck of being injured to get back what they lost. Individuals and companies
sometimes act as though the law does not apply to them. The role of an
attorney is to make sure that laws are upheld for the betterment of not
only claimants, but society as a whole.
In addition to helping people in the courtroom, we also try to make a difference
in peoples' lives through other means, including:
- Charitable work (such as the Groceries for Guns program)
- Supporting political candidates who promote equal access to justice
We Are Experienced
Our success as lawyers stems from our
more than 75 years of experience in the legal field. While our attorneys come from a wide range of backgrounds,
we have found common ground in using the law to help the victims of
unsafe property, and
other accidents, as well as disabled individuals who need help with
workers' compensation claims, securities fraud, and
Through the course of their professional development, our lawyers have
held a number of significant leadership positions, such as:
- Member of President Obama's national finance committee and current
president of the Michigan Association of Justice (Gerald Acker)
- Past chair of the Michigan Bar Association's Negligence Section Barry
and work for political candidates (Barry Goldman)
Other members of our firm have advised the Secretary of the Department
of Homeland Security and served as Executive Chair of the Michigan Democratic
Party, among other distinctions.
