Biography of attorney Matthew Goings, Esq.

Who are we?

Goings Legal is a boutique law firm located in the Greater Atlanta area serving technology start-ups, small businesses, and creative individuals. In business, timing is everything, so it is important to get things right the first time. We strive to support you and serve your needs without breaking your budget.

The landscape of technology is constantly changing, and with it, the legal field. Gone are the days where people had no choice but to seek an attorney for help and pay whatever fee they quoted. With information readily available at everyone's fingertips and online platforms such as LEGALZOOM offering do-it-yourself services, clients expect efficient, cost-effective work. That is why Goings Legal believes that the law firm model model must change to adapt to technology. Billable hours are over; clients want to know exactly what they're paying every time, not balk at an unexpected bill, so we offer flat fee packages on all our services and are transparent with our clients from the beginning.

Founder and Partner

Matthew Goings built Goings Legal on his passions. His lifelong affinity for music began with piano lessons in the first grade. He later picked up the tenor saxophone and continued playing through college in the Georgia Redcoat Marching Band.

In college, he also participated in the New Media Institute, where he discovered a passion for technology and web coding. His love of music and technology guided Matthew to specialize in Intellectual Property, focusing on Copyrights and Trademarks while also studying healthcare technology and earning the Health Law Certificate.

Matthew and his wife, Ashley, reside in Smyrna, GA and have a rescue dog named Grady. They think he's just the cutest, but they might be a little biased.
