One of the most respected and tenacious trial lawyers in Texas, Mr. Godwin earned recognition in Chambers USA based on his representation of clients in high-stakes complex litigation involving oil and gas, environmental matters, fiduciary duties, will contests, major family law disputes and business torts.
