comprehensive legal advocacy for individuals & families

Everyone needs a helping hand now and then. When you’re dealing with a legal issue, you’ll need skilled, talented, and dependable legal counsel. At Goodwin Como, P.C., we handle a wide range of legal matters with compassion, care, attention to detail, and most importantly, a proven track record of success. Our attorneys are from working-class families in Pennsylvania. We understand the critical nature of your legal issues and work hard to bring those issues to a successful conclusion.

Our attorneys are known for their strong and aggressive advocacy as well as their honest, straightforward, and down-to-earth approach. Every case and client is unique; that’s why we take the time to get to know you and tailor a legal strategy specific to your individual needs and goals.

Our attorneys are personally involved in every case from start to finish. We never turn our cases over to paralegals like most big-city firms. To accomplish this, we are selective about what cases we will accept. We are objectively successful attorneys who care about clients and will do everything in our power to make you feel secure and comfortable during troubling times. We treat your business and personal issues as though they are our own, and we are proud to be exceptionally responsive to you. We take the time to get to know you, understand you, and strive tirelessly to solve your legal problems and achieve your personal goals. As a result, we will always be there when you need us the most.

compassionate & understanding

We understand that most of our clients come in with severe and often the most heartbreaking of circumstances, and we’ve been there too. We’ll treat you with the dignity and respect you deserve and will not dismiss your problems as if they’re just not that important like other large firms. To us, you’re a person, not a paycheck, and we’ll treat you accordingly. Always remember, we’re on your side, and your side only.

local attorneys, local representation

Our attorneys are both first-generation lawyers who were born and raised in southwestern Pennsylvania. We come from working-class families. And, given our upbringing, we understand how important hard work and dedication are to success. Our families live and work in the communities we serve.

responsive & available

When clients come to us with a legal matter, they will talk directly to an attorney. We take personal responsibility for all of our client’s legal issues. So we’ll begin working on your case immediately, rather than shelving it until it becomes unavoidable, which is standard practice at the big city firms.

the law can be complicated

how we can help you

Personal Injury

Personal injury cases are commonly based on negligence, strict liability, or intentional wrongful acts. We can help you gather the necessary facts, organize the evidence needed to support your claims, develop legal strategies, prepare you with options, and implement the legal procedures required for your insurance and legal claims.

Wrongful Death

If you lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, we can help you navigate the legal process. We’ll treat you with compassion and respect and aggressively and relentlessly pursue your claim to ensure that you receive all of the financial compensation you’re entitled to.

Family Law

We represent clients in cases involving matters such as divorce, equitable distribution, alimony, spousal support, alimony pendente lite, protection from abuse (PFA) orders, child custody, child support, termination of parental rights, adoptions, and grandparent rights. Family law can be complicated when children are involved, and we’ll fight for your custody and financial rights.

Criminal Defense

It can be a terrible and life-changing experience to be arrested and charged with a crime. We understand how traumatic criminal charges can be and are here to help fight for your future. Our criminal defense attorneys will protect your rights from start to finish and fiercely advocate on your behalf if your case goes to trial.

Estate Planning and Administration

Uniontown estate and probate attorneys Benjamin F. Goodwin and Amanda M. Como are truly honored when individuals entrust them to prepare their wills, powers of attorney, living wills, property transfers or trusts to ensure that their estates pass to the ones they cherish most.

Real Estate

Buying a home is probably the single most significant investment you'll ever make. We can prepare or review all of the documents that are signed at the closing of a real estate purchase, accompany you to the closing to represent your interests, and ensure that proper procedures are followed during the acquisition or sale of the property. We can also help with title issues and advise you regarding deeds, property taxes, and estate planning.

Social Security Disability

The Social Security disability application process can be overwhelming, especially if your health is suffering. However, we can complete an initial review, collect medical evidence on your behalf, ensure that your application is completed correctly, communicate with the Social Security Administration, represent you at disability hearings, and file any necessary appeals.

Workers’ Compensation

Employees should feel safe and secure in a work atmosphere that is free from hazards; unfortunately, severe accidents still happen. If you or a loved one were injured at work, you probably have questions about the workers’ compensation claims process, getting the financial compensation you need to support your family, paying medical bills, and eventually returning to work. Our firm will fight to protect your rights and ensure that you or your loved one get the medical treatment and financial compensation they deserve.
