Attorney Profile

A highly regarded personal injury and wrongful death attorney, Jeffrey P. Goodman is a partner at The Law Firm of Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky PC. From the firm's office in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he has been instrumental in securing numerous sizable settlements and jury awards on behalf of area clients who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties.

Mr. Goodman was part of the trial team that obtained a $17 million settlement in connection with the 2010 duck boat disaster in which two people drowned and several others were injured. He was also co-lead counsel in a trial stemming from the 2010 collapse of a Salvation Army building in Philadelphia in which seven people were killed and 12 were seriously injured. After obtaining a favorable verdict from the jury, the case was settled for well over $200 million while the jury was deliberating over the amount of damages. Mr. Goodman also played a role in obtaining a $265 million settlement stemming from the 2015 Amtrak derailment that killed eight people.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Goodman attended The George Washington University, where he majored in political science and criminal justice and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2007. While there, he was captain of the school's Mock Trial Team, which spurred his interest in pursuing a legal education. He then did so at the Temple University Beasley School of Law, where he was president of the Temple Law Moot Court Honor Society and won several competitions. He also served a clerkship with a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and an internship with the Montgomery County Office of the District Attorney.
