Years In Practice


Phone Number (215) 568-6190

Harold Goodman’s very first case was to defend his client’s First Amendment rights before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. A unanimous decision in his client’s favor foreshadowed a lifetime commitment by Mr. Goodman to fight for victims of injustice. During his two decades of work with Philadelphia’s Community Legal Services, Mr. Goodman was lead trial attorney in countless landmark cases, including successful fights to preserve the due process rights of injured workers and to racially integrate labor unions and the Pennsylvania State Police. In the early 1990s, Mr. Goodman joined the team at Raynes Lawn Hehmeyer working to hold asbestos manufacturers accountable for putting asbestos into our community’s schools.

Throughout his career, Mr. Goodman has been a formidable advocate in both the trial and appellate courts. On four occasions, he has argued and won cases before the United States Supreme Court. In addition, he has argued and won more than ten cases in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and more than thirty cases in the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. He is listed in Best Lawyers in America and has been voted as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer by his peers.

Mr. Goodman devotes his practice to representing victims of unlawful discrimination or mistreatment, including for sexual harassment, sexual abuse, sexual discrimination, race discrimination, age discrimination, disability discrimination, civil rights and constitutional law violations. He also represents whistleblowers, ERISA claimants, and False Claims Act plaintiffs.
