Barry J. Goodman has devoted his professional life to helping victims attain justice after being involved in a personal injury accident. Goodman received his undergraduate degree from Bradley University in 1974 and his J.D. from Stetson University College of Law in 1977. His legal career began in Florida with a small general-practice firm where he stayed for two years before moving to Michigan.
Goodman teamed up with Gerald H. Acker in 1993, where they formed the Southfield based law firm, Goodman Acker, P.C. The firm’s practice concentrates on plaintiff’s personal injury accident cases, including Michigan auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, dog bite injuries and attacks, wrongful death cases, and any other type of personal injury accident matter. It handles cases in the city of Detroit, the Tri-County area of Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne and throughout the State of Michigan.
“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” says Goodman.
“The most fulfilling aspect of my life is working on behalf of injured clients and helping them obtain the justice they deserve. It is a great honor to not only be named a 2014 Michigan Super Lawyer, but also be be recognized with this honor for eight consecutive years.”
In addition to being named a Michigan Super Lawyer, Barry has also been honored with the Champion of Justice Award from the Michigan Association for Justice (MAJ), as well as the Wings of Justice Award by the Oakland County Democratic Party. He has also served as the Former President of the MAJ and is a longtime board member of the Anti-Defamation League.
