Goodman Acker P.C. is proud to announce that partners, Barry Goodman and
Jerry Acker, of our Southfield Michigan personal injury law firm have

Attorney and Partner Jerry Acker, a Michigan native, received his undergraduate
from the University of Michigan in 1977 and then got his J.D. from Wayne
State University Law School in 1981. Ten years after practicing as an
associate in a plaintiff’s personal injury law firm and practicing

and start their own personal injury practice, Goodman Acker P.C.
Acker and Goodman met years before the start of the firm at the Jewish
Community Center, where they would frequently play basketball on Sunday mornings.
Barry Goodman, a native of New York, received his undergraduate from Bradley
University and then got his J.D. from Stetson University College of Law.
