Jordan Godwin, a first-generation attorney from Fayetteville, North Carolina, joined Henson Fuerst in 2022 and exclusively practices complex litigation.

He graduated from Methodist University in 2017, then moved to Birmingham, Alabama to attend Samford University's Cumberland School of Law for its formidable trial advocacy program. While at Cumberland, Jordan was selected to join the American Journal of Trial Advocacy - the Nation's oldest law review dedicated to the art of trial advocacy. He also served as the director of Cumberland's Arbitration and Mediation program and, in 2020, led Cumberland's Arbitration Team's first-ever advance to the ABA National Arbitration Competition.

In practice, Jordan treats every case like it's his only case. His exceptional attention to detail and strong work ethic are invaluable tools in every complex litigation.

When he's not working, Jordan enjoys traveling with his friends, relaxing at Holden Beach, or exploring a new city.

Recent Notables

  • McDonald v. Ramirez, et al., 2022-NCCOA-643, 877 S.E. 2d 477 (Aug. 24, 2022) – Jordan’s client was injured when a dump-truck abruptly drove into his lane and caused a crash. The dump-truck’s driver and owner refused to accept responsibility but, ultimately, the trial court granted summary judgment in favor of Jordan’s client because, as a matter of law, the dump-truck’s driver and owner were 100% responsible for the crash. The dump-truck’s driver and owner appealed to the North Carolina Court of Appeals, but Jordan won the appeal and ensured they were held accountable for his client’s injuries.
