About Me

 


I am an attorney licensed to practice in the State of South Carolina. I enjoy what I do and I like answering questions for my clients. I have served as a lecturer and guest speaker at numerous public, religious, higher education and civic events. I believe that is my duty as a lawyer to help people who are faced with legal problems that bring despair into their lives and to give back to the community whenever I can. Good can conquer evil, good just needs a little help. I fight for people and help those who can't help themselves to win justice for themselves and their families.

  • Michael David Morin

    When I was a prosecutor I handled cases in which Mr. Woods was the defense attorney. Mr. Woods always worked very hard on behalf of his clients. He is very knowledgeable and does a good job protecting his clients rights. If you need a lawyer in Greenville Mr. Woods is a good choice.
