Mr. Goffar has been licensed to practice law for more than 16 years. In 1996, he hit the ground running completing his first Personal Injury Jury Trial within a few months of being admitted to practice law. Since that time, he has handled numerous cases including car accident cases, dog bite cases, slip and fall cases on public property and in retail stores and even a case of sexual battery. From the simple soft tissue injury requiring only Chiropractic Care to the multiple fracture injury requiring several surgeries to the complex serious brain injury case, Mr. Goffar has successfully handled all kinds of cases.

Recently, Mr. Goffar was able to settle a difficult case for more than seven times the insurance company's original offer. The client was in a rear end motor vehicle accident initially thought to cause a minor shoulder injury. Soon thereafter the client experienced memory and cognitive issues and developed the skin disease Psoriasis. The client was not sure if the cognitive issues and skin disease were related to the accident. The insurance company offered only $100,000.00 and stated that the skin disease and memory problems were not attributable to the car accident. Undeterred, Mr. Goffar filed suit and litigated the matter for more than a year using numerous experts to establish liability linking the skin disease and memory loss to the accident. Ultimately, the insurance company paid a settlement of $750,000.00. This is just one example of Mr. Goffar's zealous advocacy on behalf of his client.

Mr. Goffar's litigation and mediation experience includes more than 600 cases including Car Accident, Dog Bite, Slip and Fall, Class Action, and numerous employment cases including all forms of discrimination including Age, Race, Disability, National Origin, Religion, and Gender.

Mr. Goffar is an experienced trial attorney, having tried to verdict cases involving personal injury, wrongful termination/fraud, sexual harassment, and numerous wage and hour claims. Mr. Goffar has appeared before the California Court of Appeal, 4th District on many occasions, resulting in a published decision: Stillwell v. The Salvation Army (2008) 167 Cal. App.4th 360.

Mr. Goffar is licensed to practice before all State, Federal and Appellate Courts in the State of California and is an active member of the San Diego County Bar Association.
