I was referred to Jeff by a friend and I'm so glad I took his advice! I have been in a divorce/custody/financial legal battle with my ex-husband now for 5 years. You're probably thinking to yourself as your reading this my gosh 5 years is a long time, however when you have to deal with someone as difficult as my ex you would understand. Even though it has been 5 years, this case has proven to be an uphill battle thanks to Jeff and his staff. Jeff is wise beyond belief! He has delivered everything he said he would and some. He is very informative, professional and very patient (god knows that I have pushed those patience boundaries numerous times) haha, but seriously Jeff has not only become a personal friend of mine, but him and his staff have become like family. I am glad to say that I have him on my side representing me and I cannot be more thankful for all that he has done! If you are looking for a stellar attorney please contact his office and meet with Jeff, you will not be disappointed!

Highly recommend
From the moment I reached out for assistance, Jeff Godin and his assistant provided great professionalism and expertise. Jeff helped to assure me that he would reach the outcome I desired. Not only did he reach my expectations, but they also delivered results that I had hoped for. I highly recommend Jeff Godin as an attorney.

5 star Attorney - you need this guy on your side.
FIVE STAR ATTORNEY Jeff Godin represented me in a recent case I had to fight. It was my first time and he did an outstanding job. Jeff tells you exactly how it is, he doesn't sugar coat anything! Which is what people need!! Our first conversation he said we have a great chance at winning even though the judge on my case is known to be a tough one. Jeff Godin got my charge completely dismissed!!!!! If you ever need an attorney and want one who isn't going to sugar coat things for you, CALL JEFF GODIN!! Honest, reliable and determined to win your case!

Got a referral from a good friend at the start of my divorce. 5yrs later and a crazy psycho x, 1 body cam and 3 dash cams (one facing back) and who you gonna call?!?! Jeff tells you like it is, he knows the law and he knows what he can prove. If your to embarrassed to tell your attorney the truth, google those other guys, or call the x. Your gonna spend your money, may as well spend it on the best!!

The best is an understatement!
Jeff has overseen my divorce case the past 2 years. It has not been an easy one but he has fought for me when I had no fight left in me. He has educated me, taken extra time to answer questions and even been there to check on me when things got tough. He is not just a lawyer he is a friend now and I am so blessed to have him representing me and my sons. He is absolutely brilliant when it comes to the details of custody/divorce and what needs to be done in the best interest of my children. I can tell he is highly respected by his colleagues around the court house by the way he interacts with everyone, even the support staff in the court house. His staff is friendly when I call and on the ball. They are pleasant to work with and help with compassion. Jeff makes this unforeseen journey I didn’t choose easier and I am so grateful for him. Don’t get me wrong he’s a bulldog and will get what needs to be done, done but he does it respectfully while explaining what’s happening along the way. In my opinion Jeff Godin is THE BEST lawyer around!

Jeff Godin is the guy you want on your side!
I hired Jeff Godin as my attorney over five years ago and I'm so very glad I did. I've always left his office or finished our phone consultations feeling confident and at ease about my cases. He was able to get me nearly everything I was fighting for. Jeff is very personable, yet very professional. Whenever I tell someone he's my lawyer, people have positive things to say about him. Like I mentioned above and I've told him over and over, I'm very glad Jeff Godin is representing me. I have total faith and confidence in him. My family and friends have hired him, too!

Great experience!
I went to Jeff for help with my custody agreement. His experience and responsiveness got me through both the legal and personal struggles. His advice paid off when the ruling went through. I definitely recomend him whenever anyone needs legal help.

Great Experience
My experience with Jeff was absolutely amazing! He was very professional, on top of things, and knew exactly what to do and what needed to be done. My previous attorney had stretched out my case for over 2 1/2 years. I hired Jeff and within 2 months, the job was complete. And in my favor. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a solid fight for what's right attorney. He did not make false promises and made sure I was in the loop at all times. His office staff was fabulous to work with. I felt so comfortable and at ease working with them all. He is a very focused, dedicated attorney and will not let you down. I am so thankful to have had him as my attorney.

It's good to have someone in your corner
During one of the most difficult times of my life Jeff Godin was there with practical advice and a solid "plan of attack". My car was totalled...I was hurt. Dealing with the insurance company created stress I didn't need. Jeff handled everything and helped make a difficult situation bearable. He listened, he cared, and that made all the difference. I would have settled for the first offer the insurance company gave me but because I had Jeff there to fight for me I didn't have to "settle". My settlement was far more than what the insurance company had offered. I would recomend Jeff Godin to anyone who's looking for the best attorney in the area.
