  • Christopher J. Ebbott

    I endorse this lawyer's work. He is very hardworking, endlessly fighting for your rights. I strongly recommend him, and have not hesitated referring serious criminal matters to him in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

  • Daniel J. Andoni

    Mr. Norwood's knowledge of the law is excellent, but that is not why I endorse his work we have many lawyers in this county who know the law. Attorney Norwood has what you cannot get from law books he knows how to really listen to people and understand their unique situation. Through this ability I have personally observed him putting forth some of the best criminal defenses that other attorneys would have overlooked, because he took the time to listen.
