Goodman Acker P.C. is pleased to announce that Detroit Personal Injury
Attorney and Firm Partner
Barry J. Goodman has been selected among the 10 Best in Michigan for 2017 by the American
Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys (AIOPIA). This is the third consecutive
year Attorney Goodman has been named to the AIOPIA 10 Best list.
The American Institute of Legal Counsel, which operates the AIOPIA division,
is a nationwide attorney rating service dedicated to recognizing legal
professionals who have exemplified both excellence in their field and
the support and commitment that exceeds client expectations. Each year,
AIOPIA publishes a list of the “10 Best” attorneys in each
state who have proven their abilities to succeed for injured victims and families.
Because only 10 attorneys are selected from each state, recognition in
the AIOPIA 10 Best list is a significant achievement that speaks to a
lawyer’s professional and personal achievements. After all, personal
injury lawyers play a critical role in providing the compassionate and
caring support victims need as they navigate physical recoveries and the
legal process of seeking financial compensation for their damages. As
AIOPIA uses an impartial, third-party selection process, attorneys are
vetted on an objective basis and must meet all selection criteria, including:
- Formal nominations from legal peers, former clients, or the American Institute
of Legal Counsel research staff.
- Objective indicators of success that show an attorney has attained the
highest degree of professional achievement, including case results, notable
victories, professional engagement, and more.
- Proven client satisfaction based on standing in the legal and local communities,
and reviews and testimonials from former clients who have seen the attorney’s
work in action.
AIOPIA’s focus on client satisfaction is a unique approach to attorney
ratings. While the organization does meticulously evaluate nominees for
their professional abilities and success, it does not disregard client
satisfaction. Many attorneys may be able to achieve successful results,
but it often comes at the expense of the clients’ experience. By
placing an emphasis on client satisfaction and recognizing attorneys who
excel both professionally and personally with clients, AIOPIA provides
a comprehensive attorney rating system that local legal consumers can
trust when selecting a lawyer to handle their case.
Having dedicated his professional career to those seeking justice in our
legal system, Attorney Goodman has cultivated a reputation not only as
a leading trial attorney, but also as a bold and passionate advocate for
victim’s rights. His achievements throughout the years have included
millions of dollars in recoveries for the injured and the wronged, notable
positions with legal and community organizations, and a number of professional
accolades, including continued selection to the Michigan list of
Super Lawyers® (2008-present) and the Champion of Justice Award from the Michigan
Association for Justice.
Attorney Goodman’s passion for making a lasting difference in the
lives of clients and families is a significant factor in his selection
to AIOPIA’s 10 Best list, and a driving force behind our firm’s
continued success representing clients in personal injury and civil law
matters throughout the state of Michigan. We congratulate him on his recent
award, and invite anyone who would like more information about our legal
team and the services we provide to contact us for a free consultation.
