Joe Goode is the managing partner of Laffey, Leitner & Goode LLC (LLG). He approaches client problems with passion and intensity as if those problems were his own. The day he graduated from Syracuse University College of Law, Joe received the George and Evelyn Marcus Award for being the graduate who best demonstrated the qualities of good judgment, ambition, understanding, compassion, and an appreciation of learning. It was an honor, but also an early indicator. In the more than three storied decades since, those exact qualities have become synonymous with Joe. They've not only contributed to his countless successes as an attorney both inside and out of the courtroom but also to the standards by which all at LLG are held. As the last of five children, he honed his advocacy skills early in life and became very good at letting people know where he stands. He's a tireless leader who is intense and demanding (mostly of himself). He maintains an exacting eye of an old-school newsroom editor. Joe's joie de vivre is infectious to everyone around him, and his passion for people is routinely used to speak for those who require his advocacy.
