For more than a decade Goosmann Law Firm has been fulfilling its mission to help business leaders win disputes, protect their wealth, and spend time on what is worth it. 11 years is a long time, to put it in perspective it is 572 weeks, more than 4,000 days, and close to 100,000 hours. In that time, we have significantly grown our business and expanded our footprint. At Goosmann Law Firm, we celebrated 11 years of business on May 11th, 2020! Let’s look back at the past 11 years and celebrate 11 reasons why the journey has been WORTH IT.
Where It All Started
In May of 2009, Goosmann Law Firm opened its doors on the 4th floor of the Premier Bank Building. Fun facts about this were:
- The offices were so small they almost looked like closets
- Jeana Goosmann started with 1 attorney and an assistant
The Lerch Move
In 2012, Jeana decided to invest in the historic Lerch Building in downtown Sioux City. The firm renovated first floor of the building. This would become the permanent home of the Sioux City Goosmann Law Firm. This move allowed for larger space to house the growing GLF team!
A New Office Building
The Sioux Falls Goosmann Law Firm office opened in 2013. This expansion allowed the business to grow up north into South Dakota.
The Law Review
In 2013, Jeana Goosmann started recording the Law Review on Sioux City’s KTIV and Sioux Falls KELOLAND. Jeana was on the news and answered questions about all things law talk.
The firm was certified by the Women Business Enterprise National Council in 2015. This council is the largest certifier of women owned businesses and the leading advocate for women business owners.
In 2015, the firm became a member of the National Association for Minority and Women Owned Law Firms. NAMWOLF promotes diversity in the law profession by fostering relationships between minority and women owned law firms.
The Omaha Office
The Omaha, Nebraska office was opened in 2017 becoming the latest firm office location to open in the Midwest area.
Two New Office Buildings
During the year of 2017, the firm purchased the historic 501 Douglas building, also recognized as the building with the buffalo mural in downtown Sioux City and renovated it to be a second office space for the Sioux City firm.
In Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the firm purchased a lot and started the design, development and later construction of their new building.
A Fast-Growing Firm
The firm was named one of the top 100 fastest growing law firms in the United States by the Law Firm 500 Award in 2017. All thanks to our wonderful clients and team who helped make it happen.
Be Worth It Conference
In 2019, GLF was the presenting sponsor at the Be Worth It Conference in Omaha, Nebraska. The conference was dedicated to business leaders, helping them to implement the ‘Ready, Execute, Deliver’ model successfully. Featured speaker, Erin Brockovich, was a highlight of the event sharing her famous story and how her leadership and passion got her to where she is today.
Three Years Running
For the third year in a row, Goosmann Law Firm was again named on the list for one of the
top fastest growing law firms in the U.S. by Law Firm 500 in 2019.
We want to thank YOU for 11 wonderful years. We cannot wait to embark on many more opportunities and experiences that will allow our firm to grow. Whatever we do, we want to make it WORTH IT!
