    • I recommend Fred Woods.

    Mr. Woods came to my rescue after a disorderly conduct charge. He is professional, knowledgeable and courteous. He is responsive and returned calls and messages promptly. He understood the stress I was in and manifested it in his voice. While I did not have to show up in court, I decided to appear just to meet him. He explained the process and interpreted the resulting paperwork. I was impressed by his demeanor and conduct and his warm and pleasant disposition. My case was dismissed on the same day with no need for a trial. Definitely one to recommend.

    I got into some trouble and needed somebody good. There was a hometown lawyer that charged a ridiculous fee to represent people. I had a .17 and I blew into the breath machine. Mr. Woods came well recommended and I called him. I was gonna lose my job and was gonna just lose everything. So Mr. Woods made me feel like everything was gonna be okay. He got my license back within a week. He represented me out of county and for the next 11 months he would go to court, tell me the progress that he made and work it all out. He called me on father's day when I was eating with my parents and told me the good news that he had thrown the whole DUI out. My father actually started crying at the table because he was so happy and had been so worried about me and my career. I never went to court and didn't have to anything, no classes or anything else to do. I'm working now in a professional position and I owe Mr. Woods for that. My record is clean and so is my life moving forward. I encourage you to call him if you need help. Thanks Mr. Woods!!!

    "All Attorneys have a duty to display Zealous Advocacy for their clients.", as stated per AVVO community guidelines for writing Attorney reviews. However, Attorney Fred Wallace Woods Jr. is Relentless in demonstrating Consistent "Extreme Zealous Advocacy"! He is Passionately defending me even from me!
    In my situation I am facing an extreme life and Legal crisis and any mistake I make can obliterate my ability to enjoy any of the rewards I have earned through my life-long efforts!
    I am more than IMPRESSED by his Ability to manage a client who was displaying detrimental behaviors that were working against his defense efforts. His skill using therapeutic communication with me as well as superb Interpersonal communication with law enforcement officials has led to a nothing short of Miraculous Intervention on my behalf!
    In gratitude, for his swift and SKILLFULLY EXTREME ZEALOUS INTERVENTION, I write this review feeling awe and dismay because I never thought I'd see the day when I would say that I can hardly wait to see an Attorney defend me! Nevertheless, I am Faithfully Excited as I CONFIDENTLY FORESEE ALL that he is CAPABLE OF ACCOMPLISHING ON BEHALF OF ME. I Believe that in hiring Attorney Fred Wallace I have made the BEST DECISION FOR ME!

    • I recommend Fred Woods.
    • I hired Fred 1-3 years ago.
    • Fred handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I really needed a lawyer after I got into some real trouble. I told a friend of mine what happened and she referred me to Mr. Woods. I called his office and left a message with his assistant and he called me right back like one minute later. I talked to him for about 20 minutes and he answered all of my questions. I felt my life was over and I was embarrassed to tell him my story. I felt guilty for getting in trouble with the law but he never once made me feel bad about it. He treated me like a person who made a mistake and not like a criminal as the police made me feel. I had been depressed and couldn't sleep for days but after I talked to him I felt better. I said I would think about everything but 30 minutes later, I called him right back and hired him and I'm glad I did. The first looming court date was postponed until he got the evidence, then he explained everything to me and what was going to happen at the next court date. He was cool and comfortable at court and seemed to know everybody. Bottom line, we went to court, he won the case, I didn't go to jail and I went back to my life. I am never getting into trouble again, it was too stressful but Mr. Woods was a lifesaver. If you need a lawyer, hire Mr. Woods, he is a good lawyer and his skill let me live again.

    • I recommend Fred Woods.
    • I hired Fred 1-3 years ago.
    • Fred handled my DUI & DWI matter.

    I was facing a DUI Charge after driving home one night. I was scared and upset because I had never gotten in any type of legal trouble in my life. The officer pulled me over, had me perform some tests and put me in jail. I had to sleep with one eye open on a thin mat in a cold and smelly jail until the next morning and I never wanted to go back. I looked online an found Mr. Woods. He talked to me like a person, not like a lawyer and explained what I was looking at. I hired him and he said, "don't worry, get some sleep tonight, I've got this." First of all, Mr. Wods is really friendly and straight talking and really easy to reach. I could call him and text him anytime that I had a question and he would give me an answer and encouragement, which I really needed throughout this court process. I was hoping to just have the case reduced and not have a DUI so that I could keep my job but Mr. Woods got the case dismissed at court ! I was so excited, I just smiled and slept all the day the next day because I could finally get some real rest and know that I could keep my job ! If you need a DUI attorney, call Mr. Woods ASAP! I hope I never get in trouble again, but if anybody I know needs an attorney I'm making them call Mr. Woods. He was awesome !

    • I recommend Fred Woods.
    • I hired Fred 1-3 years ago.
    • Fred handled my DUI & DWI matter.

    My daughter got a DUI. As her mother, I was really upset and worried about her future and concerned about what would happen at court. We talked to some attorneys but never felt that they would really try to help her. I called Mr. Woods' office and his secretary put him right on the phone. He talked to both me and my daughter and made us both feel at ease. I had a lot of questions and he was patient and answered them all. He told us about how the field sobriety test and the breathalyzer worked and said he would fully investigate the case and not to worry. He was true to his word, he took care of all parts of the case and took the time to explain the evidence and legal issues with me. This was her first experience with any kind of attorney and I had only used an attorney for our house closing years ago. He gave us his cell phone number and whenever we called him, he was there to talk to us and always nice and cordial. At court, he did all of the talking so she didn't have to say anything but yes your honor and no your honor to the judge. He got the DUI thrown out and she ended up paying a really small fine for not having her driver's license with her when she was arrested. She has no criminal record, no points against her license and she even got to keep her license privileges and can drive. I don't know what we would have done without Mr. Woods. He was a good guy and a great lawyer. I highly recommend using him as a lawyer!!!
