Jeff Goddess has been a trial attorney in Delaware throughout his career. This has all been in private practice except for a period (1977-81) when he was the City Solicitor for the City of Wilmington.
His practice is almost exclusively trial work, involving both jury and bench trials concerning contract, business and intra-entity disputes, trust disputes, as well as casualty matters and occasional related insurance coverage disputes.
Jeff also serves as local, liaison counsel in both individual and class action proceedings where his extensive trial experience can be of benefit to out-of-town lead counsel.
