Every CEO has a secret element to help them be successful, Goosmann Law Firm is mine."
Nick Alvarez, Risk Manager at Petco Animal Supplies, Inc.
"Goosmann Law Firm helped us receive a favorable ruling on a motion for summary judgement. As a Risk Manager and working with local counsel on our legal matters, I know how uncommon these judgements are. The case was complex with lots of twists and turns, and the Goosmann team navigated us through the entire process seamlessly. Their technical experience and skill showed throughout the case and was evident in our favorable result. They made sure we were informed of each step of our case, dates, and deadlines. I greatly appreciated their willingness to be flexible and always being available to jump on a call with myself, our general counsel, or claims examiners to discuss strategy. I highly recommend Goosmann Law Firm and their outstanding team. They know what they’re doing, I thoroughly enjoy working with them, and they deliver."

Neal Greenberg, Partner & Director of CFO Systems
"Having moved my out-of-state client from another Omaha law firm to Goosmann Law, I had a chance to test our attorney and the firm. One Sunday, my client called me wanting to make significant changes to his trusts and wills by Wednesday (in 3 days). I emailed his attorney, he emailed back that evening, and my client had the changes by Wednesday when he went to the Mayo Clinic for a significant surgery. I was so impressed; I moved my personal legal work to Goosmann."
Kyle Kelly, Realtor & Broker at Century 21; Owner of Kelly Construction, Inc.

Teresa Weaver, Transaction & Closing Coordinator

Alex Imming, Real Estate Agent
"Goosmann's closing/real estate group is a very friendly group of people who takes pride in communication and professionalism. My clients and I have always had a good experience with Goosmann, and I would highly recommend realtors and others to seek out their services."
“I was very pleased with the service and advice you gave us. During red-hot chaos, you were the voice of reason. Although we wanted more–as I imagine each parent does–you correctly advised us of what was do-able for getting a parent to enter into an agreement. The week-to-week arrangement has worked reasonably well and when things start getting crazy, we have a document with teeth in it to get things back on a workable track. One thing I’ve thought about several times since then is that I had never had reason to have an attorney, but now that I have one, I can rely on, it feels good and comfortable!”
“Your representation for my mother’s estate was great, because of all of the interaction I had been involved in with my job with attorneys I had a distaste and dread of having to deal with anyone in that profession, you and the Goosmann Law firm changed all of that, you were professional, caring, always had time for me and just handled all of the problems that we had settling the estate very well, and the fees were very reasonable. The experience changed my mind on lawyers and is the reason I used the Goosmann firm to not only help me get my estate planning in order, when I sold and bought a house there was only one call to make and that was to the firm to make sure all was Ok. Thanks again to you and all at the firm, it was a good experience and I am glad I choose Goosmann Law. And will continue to use and recommend whenever I need an attorney.”
"As an owner of multiple businesses, properties and investments, I was very concerned about putting together a simple, yet comprehensive estate plan with my complicated portfolio. The Goosmann Trust Law Counsel team took the time to step-by-step discover, understand, research and explain all my options and together we came up with an excellent creative plan that meets all my wishes. My estate plan was put in place quickly and met my expectations and time frame. I really appreciated the personal attention, open communication, and friendly help throughout each step of the process. With my intricate plan in place, I now emphasize the importance of setting up a detailed estate plan to everyone and would highly recommend the Goosmann Trust Law Counsel services."
Ron and Nadine R.
"Please accept our sincere thanks and gratitude for helping us with our estate planning. The amount of time, talent and professionalism displayed by all was above perfection. Lawyers that listen, execute and advise on our desired wishes was refreshing. We felt that all our needs were completely met. Deployment is stressful enough, and the burden of having this done in a timely manner will ease our minds immensely."
Dick and Lori S.
"As a business owner, my business deals happen quickly, and I appreciate the prompt support and response I get from Goosmann Law Firm. I took confidence in knowing the firm is full-service and that the legal team works together internally to ensure as my businesses change, they are also considering my estate plan. The firm worked efficiently to get our estate plan completed and I appreciate that the Trust Law Counsel team is there for to help us keep our estate plan current. I would highly recommend working with an experienced, full-service law firm like Goosmann Law Firm."
Bill and Heather B.
"The Goosmann Trust Law Counsel team made it easy for us to get our estate plan in place. For the normal person, this is a complicated process which was made easy and less stressful by their team. They listened to us, provided thorough communication, and walked us through the process, step-by-step. We understood our options and know our final plan meets our goals. We are happy we chose to work with Goosmann Trust Law Counsel."
Milton and Linda J.
"I would recommend Goosmann Law office and counsel to anyone. The staff did a great job. Worked around our time schedule and walked us through every step. A very thorough job. Thank you, Goosmann Law Firm, - it will make us and our daughter's job so much easier down the road."
"I worked closely with the Goosmann Trust Law Counsel to prepare a living will, as I travel a fair amount and wanted to make sure all loose ends were tied up. Goosmann did a great job of guiding me through the process and asking me the right questions that helped me to think bigger picture and more long term. I see Goosmann Trust Law Counsel as a trusted advisor and am looking forward to a longstanding relationship with the team."
"After surviving the Vegas shooting, it became even more important for us to put our affairs in order. Not only for our children, but for the many businesses we own. Goosmann walked us through the process and made it super easy and understandable. Highly recommend the team at Goosmann."
"Thank you for all your work through this deal. I'm happy I had the better attorney. You did a great job."
Chad and Cat M.
"For several years, my husband and I discussed the need for having a will. This summer, we were directed to Goosmann Law Firm to seek advice in this regard. Goosmann made this experience easy in that they were both professional and knowledgeable regarding explaining the process of estate law. Their replies were prompt, and we both highly recommend contacting Goosmann for estate planning. Thank you also to the staff - all were friendly and kind."
"We want to commend the fine work of Andrew Simpson and his team in handling my mother's estate. Andrew educated us in the processes and procedures to close the estate, helped handle questions from the other benefactors, and was consistently prepared to help us as we closed the estate. Andrew is personable, an effective communicator and an excellent lawyer we highly recommend. While it was a difficult path, he assisted us in a patient, positive and constructive way. "Five stars" for Andrew Simpson and Goosmann Law!"
"I had an issue before the courts that required immediate intervention. I contacted Goosmann Law Firm and Anna recognized the urgency behind the issue at hand. She worked very quickly to help make sure I was taken care of, always keeping me in the loop as to what was happening, with the help of Autumn who was instrumental in getting me the information I needed. Anna was able to get my case out of the courts and into private negotiations. In the end, she helped me save thousands of dollars that would've otherwise been forfeit. Beyond her legal help, Anna was also just a great person to have on my side! She was easy to talk to about my issues and had a great sense of humor which I really appreciated. If I ever have need for representation in the future you can bet that Anna and Goosmann Law Firm will be my first call, I'd recommend they be yours as well."
"I had an issue that required very quick movement to make sure they didn't end as a default judgement against me in the courts. I worked with Anna here in Sioux Falls, SD. She recognized the urgency immediately and went to work negotiating for me to help get the issue taken care of. Through her partnership with myself and the other party, Anna was able to help me save thousands of dollars that would've otherwise been lost to me. Anna kept me in the loop as to what was going on so I was never wondering. If I did have a question, she responded very quickly. All of this was at the beginning of the pandemic, meaning that there wasn't any face to face contact until the final business was taken care of, and I still felt like they were giving me their full attention. Besides all the professional stuff, I really enjoyed talking with Anna as she also has a great sense of humor that I wasn't expecting. I'm unable to speak about cost, as I have a legal plan which helped pay for mine, but based on my experience, I'd absolutely recommend Goodman Law Firm here in Sioux Falls, SD, and specifically Anna. Autumn was also extremely helpful in keeping me informed through-out the process!"
