I felt very confident going to the arbitration, knowing I had someone knowledgeable, capable, professional and savvy going to bat for me.
Every person I dealt with at Woodruff Family Law Group was cordial, efficient and professional. When you add to that they seem to enjoy their jobs and have very caring attitudes, you have a very well run office that helped me navigate the most difficult sea I have ever encountered.
I want to thank every person there for their part in seeing me through this ordeal. Though I know you were just doing your job, you listened and never forgot that among the facts and figures of divorce, there lies a broken spirit. That sounds depressing, but, hey, I've got my 'happy' back!! Things are good. My house is ready to go to market in March, the same month my first grandchild is expected!
I came to the firm to get a divorce and divide the marital estate. During the course of our time working together, what has impressed me the most is what Carolyn Woodruff has been able to pull from the file cabinets of her memory, regarding detailed aspects of my case. Carolyn has also been a safe haven during a time of being very concerned with my well-being. When I think of Carolyn, I would say she is intelligent, quick on her feet, a quick thinker, and very friendly and warm in times of stress and duress. She has a calming effect about her. Overall, the Woodruff Family Law Group is efficient. The staff members have all become family. They offer a family environment. I have felt I could call on anyone day or night. Communication lines are always open. With the length of time my case has taken, it would have been easy to slip to the back of the firm’s caseload. That doesn’t happen at Woodruff.
Representation from Carolyn and Taylor Daniel has been exceptional. Both attorneys value the clients input and rely on their knowledge of law, in culmination with concentration on the facts - to produce.
Carolyn Woodruff, Taylor Daniel and Steve Coggin did a terrific job handling my case. Carolyn put together a well thought out and fair custody order. Taylor kept me at ease during a brief court hearing and Steve was terrific with the numbers when it came time to work out the property settlement. This is a strong team to have when it comes to family law issues.
When I met with Carolyn Woodruff at Woodruff Family Law Group, my goal was to obtain full custody. Carolyn was extremely knowledgeable in the legal aspects from the first meeting. She was also very responsive to emails, explaining things in a way that I could understand. Carolyn, Steve Coggin, Lauren James, Cookie Karabin and everyone… I felt like everyone was there for me if I needed something. If you need help with a family law matter, you want intelligent, capable, understanding, skilled and compassionate people to help you. You want Woodruff Family Law Group on your side.
Our case is complicated. It involves our daughter’s custody, visitation and child support from the father of our grandchild covering multiple states and attorneys. We researched firms in North Carolina extensively to be sure the attorney we hired here would be fully capable of first understanding, and then providing accurate guidance regarding the most important priorities in our lives – our daughter and our grandchild.
The team at the Woodruff Family Law Group works in full synchronization. Even during our first meeting, Carolyn Woodruff listened intently to our situation and took action to verify what we couldn’t. While we met and talked with her, she instructed her team members to verify petitions filed in other states and other facts of our case, and even contacted our attorney out of state. She was precisely clear of what she needed to know, and in what seemed like no time, her assistants were swiftly providing her additional information as she requested it. In our first hour, she not only fully understood our case, but had verified facts, and was making insightful suggestions on how to proceed. Carolyn Woodruff does more in one hour than legal teams we have worked with do in days. She is not only an incredible value due to her efficiency, but, as the results of our case will affect the rest of many of our loved ones lives, she is the best investment in our future that we could make.
To provide the best legal representation, an attorney needs to be knowledgeable, caring, and above all, respected – both by those who agree with her, and oppose her. Carolyn Woodruff earns and commands respect because it is who she is and what she is committed to. We can’t possibly recommend her highly enough.
We recently met with Carolyn after our daughter received notice that the father of her child was suing for custody. Our daughter had fled to NC with her child several months earlier to escape the abuse of the child’s father. Concerned with the safety of our daughter and granddaughter, we sought an attorney who would be tough, and have a clear understanding of the maze of laws surrounding custody issues. We found Carolyn Woodruff to be all that and more. During our initial meeting, Carolyn used her extensive knowledge and expertise to guide the conversation in the most productive way possible. Even after it was determined that our case would fall under the jurisdiction of another state, Carolyn followed up with e-mails containing valuable research and advice. Most of all, during a very stressful and worrisome time, Carolyn was a voice of reason and genuine caring. Our only regret is that we did not seek her services the moment our daughter and granddaughter moved to North Carolina. We would recommend her services to anyone in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina who needs a “caring bulldog” to fight for them in a family law matter.
