Our Firm

The Law Offices of Goodchild & Duffy understands when an injury has changed an injured worker’s life, and how it is common to feel helpless and desperate. The insurance companies and large institutional defendants have access to unlimited legal staffing to fight your claim.

When your entitlement to treatment and benefits is delayed or denied, you need a “David” to fight the “Goliath” defendant.

David fighting Goliath

The Law Offices of Goodchild and Duffy is proud to assume the role of David. We are a small, but powerful and conscientious law firm, and we know how to defeat the “Goliath” insurance companies and institutional defendants.

Our firm works diligently to get you all the medical treatment you need, and we make sure that your recovery is maximized.

For over forty years, we have aggressively fought for injured and disabled people, negotiating many of the largest settlements in the state of California.

Since 2003, we have been continually awarded the distinguished Martindale Hubbell AV rating, in recognition of our “ethical standards and legal ability.”

Our attorneys have over 100 years cumulative experience, and we have represented our clients in every appellate court, including the California Courts of Appeals, the California Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

We model ourselves after the saying of President Theodore Roosevelt who suggested that the appropriate way to deal with such matters is to “walk softly but to carry a big stick.”  We do not raise our voices in anger. Instead we do the legal work, preparation, negotiation, trial, and appeal necessary to obtain the best result for you.

All of our services are done on a contingency basis, which means that you do not pay anything unless and until your case is resolved. Our legal fee is a reasonable percentage of the money we recover for you.

If you currently have an attorney, but you are not satisfied with the service you have received, you have the right to change attorneys at no additional expense at any time.

You have the right to a responsive and competent attorney. We would be happy to review your case to see if we can help you get a better result.

If you have been injured or become disabled, we are here to help you through this difficult period in your life. Please contact us to schedule a free consultation and case evaluation.
