    • Timothy Sweet

      Attorney Godin is one of the very best, most respected, attorneys in the criminal defense / appeals community. I have known her for several years now and she is one of the very few attorneys I trust enough to refer clients to. I cannot endorse Attorney Godin strongly enough.
