The 2013 selection marks the sixth time Mr. Godwin has earned selection to D Magazine’s list of the city’s best lawyers in recognition for his work in business litigation matters. Mr. Godwin currently represents Halliburton as the lead trial attorney in the ongoing civil trial in New Orleans concerning the 2010 BP Macondo oil well blowout in the Gulf of Mexico.

“Some of the best attorneys I have worked with and faced in litigation are practicing in Dallas,” says Mr. Godwin. “I am very pleased to once again be included among such an impressive group of lawyers.”

Mr. Godwin is one of the most respected trial lawyers in the country. Named in the 2012 and 2013 editions of The Best Lawyers in America, he has also been selected twice to the American City Business Journals’ “Who’s Who in Energy” listing. Mr. Godwin has also been named to the exclusive Texas Super Lawyers list each year since its inception in 2003.

D Magazine’s 2013 listing of the top attorneys in Dallas was determined through a peer-review voting process and ballots submitted by nearly 9,000 local lawyers. Those casting ballots could only nominate others within their own practice area. The final list was compiled by an independent panel of distinguished attorneys that worked in conjunction with the magazine’s editors.
