Matt Miller-Novak is an attorney at Godbey Law, LLC. Matt received his Juris Doctorate from Chase School of Law, his Master of Fine Arts degree in painting from the University of Cincinnati, and his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting from Youngstown State University. Matt first moved to Cincinnati in 2001 to study painting at the University of Cincinnati after marrying his wife Jamie. Jamie began teaching high school English in the Three Rivers School District, and Matt began teaching painting and drawing at Northern Kentucky University while exhibiting his art regionally and nationally.

Matt soon developed an interest in local government and began getting involved in campaigns and other community service. Moreover, his faith had always driven his desire to empower those with less bargaining power in our society. In the year 2010, Matt decided to stop teaching and attend law school. Upon his admission at Chase Law, Matt focused his studies on Constitution jurisprudence and employment discrimination. He graduated Cum Laude, and he received honors for his trial advocacy skills and legal writing. In addition, Matt published two law review articles, and he spoke at Whittier Law School regarding employment matters in 2014.

Matt is now a civil litigator at Godbey Law, and he is actively empowering citizens in government accountability cases, employment discrimination cases, and other civil matters. He has received his share of coverage in various local news reports on his cases, and his practice at Godbey Law continues to grow. In his private life, Matt continues to paint, as well play guitar and piano at his church in Walnut Hills.
