Excellent attorney Cincinnati best
Mark is a professional and caring attorney. My family has had the honor to use Mr Godbey on several occasions for cases, in which he handled diligently. He treats everyone with dignity and honesty, and respect no matter how big or small the case may be. Mr. Godbey is Cincinnati's best, he never disappoints. Thank you Mark.

Bravo Job!!!!
I'm so thankful I met and got to work with the whole Godbey family. I was treated like a lady, not looked down upon per my situation, and truly was helped with every aspect of the bankruptcy! Thanks to the team and especially William, he had a ton of questions thrown at him and was there with me the whole time!!!

You Should Definitely Call Mr. Godbey!
Mr. Godbey has represented my family members for more than 15 year on a number of matters including probate, real estate negotiations, estate planning, tenant eviction representation, city building condemnation and sadly in once case criminal traffic (not me-lol). In all situations he resolved them with stellar results and excellent client service. I recommend talking to him about any legal matter you have. You will not regret it!

I contacted Godbey and Associates to assist me with my small business of setting up a LLC. I needed this setup in a very short period of time. I found everyone at Godbey and Associates whom assisted in the process were very professional and eager to work with at a reasonable fee. Highly Rank Godbey and Associates 5+ Stars...

Professional, individualized, customer service
It is so refreshing to be treated with respect and with a high level of customer service. The Godbey staff treated me with high regard. They never left me waiting for them to show up to our appointments. They didn't make me feel rushed as they answered all of my questions. They made sure I felt comfortable with everything before moving forward. I recommend them all the time to anyone I know. It is a rare thing to find. Thank you!

Complete Service
I found that regardless of the questions that came up in my case - Mark, or one of his associates, always had an answer for me promptly. I could always get a hold of them and know what was going on in my case.

Always there!
I have to say that Mark has always been there when I needed him for legal help. Whether it be for a consultation or actual legal issues, he is always there to help. He has even come to me when I was not able to get to his office. I can only say positive things about his expertise and straight forward advice. I have experienced only favorable outcomes when dealing with Mark over the last 25 years, and counting. I wholeheartedly recommend Mark to everyone I know friends and family alike. Therefore I definitely recommend his services for all your legal needs.

We had to fire him. Broke his promise to fight for us in court.Wasted our discovery time.Tried to backstab us when we complained
He wasted our 4 months discovery period by doing almost nothing. He did an inaccurate analysis of the depositions that he took on our case. He failed to inform us of our rights to a jury option. He refused to investigate that the defense and their lawyers destroyed evidence in our favor when we asked him to do so. We ended up firing him. His replacement lawyer pointed out numerous mistakes the he made in his initial complaint to the court and charged us thousands of dollars to completely rewrite it. Godbey did not know what he was doing. When we complained to the Cincinnati Bar on him 2 months after firing him he tried to retaliate by sending us a addition bill for $1500 and claiming that we were 2 months past due in spite of his office aide telling us 2 months prior that we were competely paid up. He told a replacement lawyer private facts about our case without informed consent by us and put a negative spin on it to try to sabotage our finding a replacement.Now he's moved to Lebanon!

Response from Mark Godbey March 10, 2016
This is completely untrue. This gentlemen, James Everett, went through 3 lawyers before me to try to get money from a relative's estate. To begin, he isn't even the client. He was acting on behalf of his mother and aunt. When he didn't like my advice, he fired me and hired another attorney. When he inevitably lost the probate case (Hamilton County, OH Case No 2005-002414), he then sued every attorney who worked on it. He represented himself because he could not find an lawyer to take the case. Mr. Everett's suit was thrown out on Summary Judgment (Hamilton County Case No. A0703437). Unfortunately, AVVO does not have any system of due process whereby such libel can be contested or removed. Despite my efforts, AVVO refuses to remove this false comment.
