Godbey Law is top notch in legal services! Our family could not be happier with the service we received! Mr. Godbey and his team will fight hard to win your case. They are relentless when it comes to negotiations to get more money into your pocket! They helped my family get justice for our wrongful death case. Thanks to Godbey Law, my family was finally able to get closure fir my father’s death. I highly recommend this law firm. They will treat you right! Excellent law firm.

After being with another law firm, I chose to find someone more in tune with my case. After an extensive review, I selected Godbey Law to be MY Team. Ed Vardiman and Amanda Hood were great! I worked closely with Danielle to prep for trial and after extensive negotiations, we had it settled but for two major items. Ed and Danielle prepared me for testimony and we were able to get the decision in our favor. I was able to protect my son. I highly recommend Godbey Law and Ed Vardiman!

Mark and his staff took excellent care of our needs preparing our estate documents. We were treated with courtesy, respect and our questions were always answered promptly.

I had a very secure and informative experience with Ed Vardiman and his team . Not only did they make me feel safe with my situation but would explain what was happening and what was going on so that I learned a lot. They are understanding as well. There were a few times I would come at them upset or frustrated (sorry) with what was going on in my situation and they totally got it. Honestly that made me feel better knowing that they could understand my frustration and did everything they could to help. Made me feel I made the right choice by going with Godbey Law. Thanks guys!

I was given this office as someone who would be willing to go above and beyond for me. I dealt with Tonya the Legal Assistant. She was always there when I needed her. She was very prompt with responding to me. She was amazing and was always on top of everything. The lawyer I used from this office was Edwin L Vardiman, Jr. I highly suggest this office by all means. After my first call with him he explained exactly what he was going to do and the process. I was always in the loop of what was going on and what the next step would be. My first experience with a lawyer and I am proud to say this was the best experience ever. This office will always be my go to when and if needed. I would highly recommend them by all means.
