DALLAS, — Insurance law boutique Amy Stewart Law is pleased to announce that Beverly Godbey has joined the firm as Principal. Ms. Godbey was most recently with Dallas’ Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP, where she was a partner and co-chair of the firm’s litigation practice.
A trial lawyer with more than three decades of experience, Ms. Godbey represents corporate policyholders from a wide variety of industries in a full spectrum of insurance issues, from coverage disputes and insurance recovery to insurance policy reviews and analysis.
“Beverly and I have known each other for many years; she is smart, takes incredible care of her clients, and is a top-tier insurance advocate,” says firm founder Amy Elizabeth Stewart. “Her sterling reputation is well-deserved, and she immediately enhances our bandwidth for serving policyholders facing complex insurance coverage issues.”
Joining Amy Stewart Law also offers Ms. Godbey growth opportunities, she says.
“I am so excited to be joining Amy and the exceptional team of lawyers she has assembled,” Ms. Godbey says. “Because the firm represents policyholders exclusively, I will no longer be precluded from accepting matters adverse to particular insurers, which opens up tremendous opportunity for growth.”
Ms. Godbey is admitted to practice before state courts in Texas and Georgia, as well as the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western Districts of Texas; U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia; and U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Fifth, Eighth and Eleventh Circuits.
