Experienced Banking / Finance Litigation Lawyers

At Godwin Bowman & Martinez, we understand that financial institutions operate in a shifting legal and regulatory climate and we provide advice to help our clients stay ahead of changes, mitigate risk, and avoid litigation. When litigation is necessary, our team has the knowledge and the training required to provide aggressive and effective representation at both the trial court and appellate court levels. Our attorneys are results-oriented, with a reputation for providing the highest standards of service to our clients in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

We have represented financial institutions throughout Texas and nationwide for over 35 years. We routinely handle cases involving such issues as:

  • Collateralized debt obligations
    We represent banking and financial institutions in disputes involving these structured asset-backed securities, such as those arising when investors suffer financial losses or when financial institutions are accused of non-compliance with securities laws.
  • Credit default swaps
    We provide informed defense in the event that the terms of a CDS contract are disputed or when financial institutions face accusations of improper payouts and failure to abide by securities industry regulations.
  • Creditor rights
    We protect the creditor’s right to collect the money they are owed through placement and foreclosure of liens on property, wage garnishment, sequestration, and many other collection methods.
  • Inter-creditor disputes
    Not only do we represent creditors in disputes with debtors, but we also represent creditors in disputes with other creditors.
  • Correspondent lending disputes
    We represent correspondent mortgage lenders in disputes with other financial institutions. We help lenders enforce their rights under correspondent loan agreements and third party investor agreements.
  • Lender liability
    We represent lenders in breach of contract and fraud litigation when borrowers make accusations of unfair treatment.
  • Directors' and officers' liability
    Godwin Bowman & Martinez has extensive experience dealing with D&O litigation and claims involving director/officer breach of duty or related misconduct, such as failure to disclose conflicts of interest.
  • Will and trust contests
    Our attorneys are skilled in the arena of disputes involving wills and trusts. We handle cases where parties seek to overturn what they believe to be an invalid will, as well as lawsuits against beneficiaries or other parties who may be wrongfully taking from a trust.
