Crain’s’ Detroit Business worked with the industry publication Best Lawyers to identify who should receive this award. The awardees are decided upon detailed peer evaluations from attorneys, not from paying a fee, firm business growth and outstanding civic or industry leadership contributions.
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 as a solo practitioner, Acker decided to join forces with Barry Goodman 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. Before moving to Michigan, he launched his legal career in Florida with a small general-practice firm.
Goodman Acker P.C. has now been in practice for over 30 years. The law firm is located in Southfield, Michigan but handles cases throughout the entire State of Michigan, including Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne Counties.
