Anthony Godfrey

With nearly 10 years in the legal field, Anthony Godfrey has exceptional experience both nationally and internationally. His global perspective contributes to our multinational clientele, that we are so proud to represent. As of now, Anthony’s primary intent is helping those who have been negatively impacted by defective medical devices, as well as harmful pharmaceuticals. While at Martin Baughman he has most recently appeared in the Southern District of Indiana for argument to protect the interests of a badly injured client and make sure juries hear every piece of evidence they need to render justice. He founds his practice on an ethic of equal opportunity to justice for all.

Before working at Martin Baughman, Anthony lived in central Guatemala promoting literacy among its indigenous populations, and working as an aid to the Vice President of Guatemala on environmental regulation and stopping gender-based violence. Passionate about the protections due all people under the laws of their country, Anthony left Guatemala to attend the Dedman School of Law as a Presidential Scholarship Recipient. During his time in law school he refined his advocacy skills working with the Federal Public Defender of the Northern District of Texas in the appellate division drafting briefs argued and won in the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, as the Guardian and Attorney ad litem for a child with the W.W. Caruth, Jr. Child Advocacy Clinic, and has published extensively on the intersection of international law and human rights. Proficient in Spanish, Anthony was most recently privileged to use this in his disaster relief work with those impacted by hurricanes in Houston and Puerto Rico.

His international involvement throughout his professional and academic career has overlapped into his everyday life. You can find Anthony traveling, cycling, and cheering for Liverpool FC in his free time.
