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. He also has earned a reputation as a master negotiator in high-risk disputes among corporate executives, their legal departments, and other highly visible individuals.
Chambers USA is published by London-based Chambers and Partners, which is recognized worldwide for its thorough guides to the legal profession. Recognition in Chambers USA is based on thousands of interviews with attorneys and clients to identify those lawyers and law firms that demonstrate the top technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, diligence, commitment and other qualities most valued by clients.
Mr. Godwin is the lead trial lawyer for Halliburton Energy Services Co. in connection with all ongoing civil litigation and investigations stemming from the 2010 BP Macondo oil well blowout in the Gulf of Mexico. The multidistrict litigation includes more than 100,000 lawsuits and damage claims exceeding $40 billion, making it the largest environmental case in U.S. history.
“While I am honored to have earned recognition from such a prestigious publication, I have to believe that although it was a personal honor, at its core, it is actually a validation of the tremendous work of this entire firm,” says Mr. Godwin.
Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Mr. Godwin also has been recognized by the Dallas Business Journal, D Magazine, The Best Lawyers in America, and Texas Super Lawyers, and has been honored with a Distinguished Alumni Award from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law.
