I was referred to Mr. Goodfellow with a complicated custody and modification case. Mr. Goodfellow expertly navigated me through the difficulties I was experiencing. His significant trial experience was obvious. Thanks to him, I was successful in defending all the claims he assisted me with. I would recommend him without reservation.

I have had an excellent ongoing partnership with this law firm representing me since we first brought a civil case to them in 2007. Since that time, I have had Brent Goodfellow represent me and close family and friends in cases that varied widely from both criminal and civil areas. The issues he has specifically addressed that I have detailed knowledge of included divorce with custody & parenting, felony and misdemeanor criminal, modification of parenting time, and a hefty civil lawsuit.

The civil matters that this firm handled have varied widely with four different families and cases that I had been assisting with and needed to recommend legal representation for. Although many times we encountered resistance to swift resolution from opposing council, I can honestly say that Mr. Goodfellow’s firm never dragged their feet to prolong the process and accrue more legal fees like other firms had done. The entire staff at the law firm of Goodfellow Law are always consistent and quick to resolve the issues on their side of an open case as expediently as possible. In my experience, we have always come out with the desired result in all our cases where Mr. Goodfellow and his legal associates have represented us.


Mr. Goodfellow has always been keenly observant of facts and evidence in a case presented to him. He is not only ethically conscientious but very responsive to answering my questions thoroughly. He is adept at maneuvering the local political system and has previously sat the bench as a judge in Yamhill County as well. He can be trusted to be fair, forthright, honest, and has impeccable integrity. Small county politics tend to have a lot of sway and self-derived power there when you’re entangled in a criminal matter. It is with a great deal of thankfulness that Mr. Goodfellow proved to have excellent internal contacts for ensuring a swift delivery of information to ease troubled minds entangled in this legal process, and assist in a speedy outcome with positive results.


I could not be happier with his firm and the legal staff. They are polite, attentive, and informative. They pass messages expediently to the paralegal’s and attorneys, and I have never been kept waiting. I can only give them the highest accolades and recommendation.
