Attorney Goodman has been defending his clients in Nevada since 2000. Since then, he has shown professionalism and expertise when it comes to dealing with DUI charges made against the convicted.

Ross knows how DUI works and how to get the charge out. He has comprehensive knowledge in several drunken driving trials, and has successfully defended many of his clients. No matter if the charge is a misdemeanor or a felony, you will get a fair chance at the trial.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Our firm is aware of the many crimes allegedly committed by people here in Las Vegas. We believe in giving everyone a fair chance no matter what kind of mistake they have made. It does not matter what they need us for. Drinking and driving, casino markers, or if they need help in receiving compensation because of their injuries, we’ll be here for them.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

The combined experience of my years in the Marines, the hours in law school and the time spent in the many cases that I've went through have taught me that everybody needs help one way or another. It inspires me to fight harder for my clients, and I do believe that they have the right to defend themselves and be presumed innocent until proven guilty.

My experience in the Marine Corps have taught me discipline, and to never give up even if the going gets tough. The only thing to do is to keep moving forward, and fight smart. This fact is what I think makes me different from other lawyers.
