Goforth Easterling LLP

Goforth Easterling LLP (formerly Goforth Lewis) is a civil litigation firm located in central Houston. Goforth Easterling LLP focuses on commercial, products liability, and personal injury litigation. The firm was established in January 1989 by Daniel O. Goforth and Carlene R. Lewis.

At Goforth Easterling LLP we use our extensive courtroom experience to aggressively pursue our cases and provide our clients with zealous representation. Goforth Easterling LLP is a trial firm and our lawyers are regularly in the courtroom in front of judges and juries. We represent businesses and individuals, plaintiffs and defendants. Our attorneys have handled and tried scores of cases involving such matters as corporate disputes, protecting creditors' rights, consumer and commercial affairs, oil and gas litigation, catastrophic injury, mass torts, employment law, and insurance disputes. We understand and participate in the complexities of the trial court system.

Today, three lawyers comprise the legal force at Goforth Easterling LLP. Daniel O. Goforth is certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in personal injury trial law and is a veteran of numerous trials. Kate Harrison Easterling worked as a law clerk at the firm throughout law school, joined the firm as an associate in 2006, and became a partner in the firm in 2011. Ryan D. King worked as a law clerk at the firm throughout law school and joined the firm as an associate in 2010.

Because of the firm's size, each lawyer maintains a working familiarity with all cases. They are supported by a staff of paralegals, legal assistants, and clerks. Thus, each case is afforded the specialized attention of the lawyers to whom it is assigned, as well as the personal consideration and resources of everyone in the firm.
