Scott Goodman is a well established and professional attorney who represented me and my interests after a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) arrest in Albemarle County. Scott took the time to initially meet with me after normal business hours given my schedule. Scott was very candid and upfront about every aspect of my legal case and was accessible and engaged over the duration. I was very fortunate in the outcome of my legal case and attribute much of this to Scott's representation.

I could not have asked for a better experience with Mr. Goodman. He was extremely diligent (spent time taking pictures to back up my story, answered all my calls/texts immediately, followed up with the court afterwords to make sure everything was fine). We were able to get the judge to take our side over the cops and this would not be at all possible if it weren't for his work. He made me feel comfortable throughout it all and I learned the way an attorney should do the job correctly. A peer had recommended him to me and now I can consider him to be a good friend of mine. Thanks Mr. Goodman!

I came to Scott with serious charges that every other lawyer in town told me would be a long shot and then some. Scott said he felt confident he could reduce the charges, and he wasn’t just telling me what I wanted to hear. He jumped right into the case, came to meet me on the weekend, and had nothing but great advice to offer. Scott is smart, personable, and genuinely cares about his clients. As such, he also has friends in all the right places. He was able to work it out with the officer ahead of time so only the most favorable version of events would come out, and he knew exactly what would and wouldn’t be important to the judge. The case was over and done with in less than a minute, and I was beyond happy with the results. Long story short, Scott’s the man.

I was extremely lucky to be referred to Mr. Goodman by someone with a great heart and great soul. I am a super newbie to Virginia and was got into a mess of a situation. I met with Mr. Goodman went through my case and particulars. Not even knowing me, Mr. Goodman took my case, super lucky me. My charges were not good at all. Mr. Goodman was always straight up with me with my circumstances and it was not good. I loved him being straight up with me and his true honesty but I cried many of times and there was good reason to. Honesty is the best policy. Mr. Goodman was able to help me through this disastrous position I was in my life. I would recommend Mr. Goodman to anyone in any legal representation/mess that is needed. This can happen to any of us in life. Thank you Mr. Goodman for all your super great representation and for helping me keep my livelihood. Greatly, much appreciated.

Everyone knows and has always heard that if you want the best lawyer then you have Scott Goodman no matter whether its surrounding counties or Charlottesville I have always heard Scott was the best lawyer and I know can without a doubt agree completely .I was lucky enough to have Scott Goodman retained as my attorney on a felony charge and because of the excellent attorney that he is, he was able to have my charge dismissed and I honestly never would have thought it was possible but I now know that with any other lawyer it wouldn't have been possible and the only reason that my charge was dismissed was because of Scott Goodman!! Highly Highly satisfied and recommended!

Scott Goodman has always had a reputation of being the best lawyer in Charlottesville. When I ran into trouble I decided to give him a call, and he definitely lived up to what I had heard about him. He got me off without even having to go into court, he was ALWAYS easy to reach, and he was fair priced. Whatever trouble you're in, minor or major, I promise you that you won't go wrong by hiring him you'll be glad you did

When a family member of mine needed help, I knew Scott Goodman was the one who had the most experience and could be trusted to get the best outcome. Initially my family member had another lawyer that we never heard from and that morning in court, Scott Goodman jumped right in to help us. The Commonwealth Attorney had a video showing the "crime" and things really didn't look good at all! Mr. Goodman tried the case with ease and we won! Having a charge against you, can be damaging in so many ways. It is important to get an attorney to help you that knows the law, has many years of experience and most importantly is confident in the courtroom. Scott Goodman is that attorney! He really is excellent!
