Eric W. Goodale

Eric Goodale joined the Henson Fuerst team in 2012 with nearly 10 years of experience in Social Security Disability law. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in political science with a minor in business administration from Penn State University in 1997, where he was a member of the Golden Key National Honor Society. In 2000, Eric graduated with his Juris Doctorate from Albany Law School.

During law school, Eric served as a member of the American Inn of Court, worked for the New York State Attorney General’s Office and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and worked with the Honorable Anthony J. Carpinello in the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division. After law school, Eric spent four years in a general practice law firm in Syracuse, New York and then seven years practicing exclusively in Social Security Disability law for a nationwide disability law firm in Washington, D.C. Eric has practiced in the Social Security Disability department at Henson Fuerst since 2012 and has served as the lead Social Security attorney since 2014.

Eric prides himself on being as honest and approachable as possible. He strives to be an open book for his clients—what you see is what you get. Eric hopes this approach will make his clients’ experiences as easy as possible. He became a lawyer because he has a genuine interest in providing help to those who may not be able to assist themselves.

Eric is a sports fanatic. He particularly likes volleyball, tennis, basketball and racquetball, and anything related to his beloved Penn State Nittany Lions and New York Yankees. Beyond sports, he enjoys traveling with his wife Robin and spending time with his son, Jordan. Eric also considers himself a connoisseur of microbrews and fine wine.
