My family was torn apart in a Family Violence case, I being the victim in the matter became confused, in what proved to be a very drawn out case. Sarah Woods came highly recomended by one of houston top lawyers.Under stress and feeling very uninformed Sarah went out of her way the same day I called to sit down with me.I explain how, out of hand everything was and did not fully understand how the justice system worked.Sarah went to work right away on my case getting the bare facts that gave me peace of mind. She kept me up to date every step of the way and gave me a voice in a very difficult matter. Sarah truly cares about her clients,

Sarah came highly recommended by one of the top attorneys in Houston. I don't feel I could have hired a better lawyer to handle my legal dilemma. Sarah had a mastery of all the issues pertinent to my case and offered excellent council. Sarah was also something I didn't expect, Sarah was compassionate and understanding of my situation. She offered positive and constructive advice on how I could assist her in preparing for my court dates. She was someone I felt safe with as I maneuvered the justice system.
I know I will never be in need of her services again but I leave this chapter in my life behind and am so grateful I had Sarah V. Wood as my advocate. I highly recommend Mrs. Wood to anyone that needs a criminal defense attorney, she will fight the good fight and wont rest till she has the best possible outcome for her clients.

I came to know Sarah Wood when my case became more serious and started to take many turns I had not expected. She was brought on board as the second member of my legal team. My case was a high-profile, difficult one, with media involvement, and my professional licenses and career at stake. She is not only an exceptionally smart lawyer, but cared deeply about my case. I felt comfortable with and trusted her, which is a crucial part of the process. My expectations for the outcome of my case were high and I am pleased to say Ms. Wood delivered. I consider her a friend and would not hesitate in calling on, or recommending her to anyone.

When I got a call from a bondsman saying that I had a warrant for my arrest for assaulting a family member I was hysterical to say the least. I got online, looked around and saw the reviews on Sarah Wood's profile. I could not have found a better lawyer. She made me feel very comfortable and re-assured me that she could take care of it. She was very knowledgeable and always kept me informed about my case. SHE GOT MY CASE DISMISSED!!! I highly recommend her.

Sarah Wood helped me through a very tough time. I was called to be a witness in a case involving a loved one. Although witnesses do not have to have counsel, I personally do not trust prosecutors and did not want to go into that environment without an attorney. Sarah was professional, knowledgeable, fearless and trustworthy. She did everything she could to prepare me to testify and guided me through the whole process. She showed a great deal of integrity and flexibility as the trial extended past the couple of days we thought it would last, she juggled her schedule and stayed with me through the ordeal. They say you can tell what a person is made of when no one is looking. I hired her for a "small thing" without fanfare or publicity, but she handled it with the utmost professionalism and quality. In fact my loved one's attorney remarked that Sarah was "really on the ball, she's a good lawyer". Thanks Sarah!

When i got charged with POM ( possession of marijuana) i had no idea to what to do after calling a bunch of lawyer i finally came across Sarah wood and it was the best be thing i have ever done.
She was the first lawyer that i talked to that actually took her time and listened to my situation and explained to me all me option.
Without any hesitations i immediately was feeling confer table with her representing me on a case that could have got me a couple months in jail, costly fines, drug classes, probation.......and so much more.
Starting from the first day when we went to court she immediately started demanding the court for all the evidence that they had against me even though some of them where still not ready by the court she kept on fallowing up with it every week until she was able to get her hands on it.
Every time i went to court she explained what was going to happen and what's all my options are she even typed down a list of all my option and explained what each one of them was and what i would have to do.
After couple of weeks of fighting my case that in the beginning seemed impossible to get out of without the maximum charge, she got me the minimum charge that no one in that court room was ever able to get , a one step down from dismissal which i had to make sure that i do not get in trouble for only 90 days and everything will be dismissed.
A dismissal without any costly fees or any headache
LIKE I SAID IN THE TITLE IF I HAD TO EVER DO THIS AGAIN I WOULD ABSOLUTELY CHOOSE HER AGAIN WITH OUT ANY HESITATIONS.

Ms Sara was my attorney back in 2005. I was very satisfied with the results of my case. I like the way she communicated with me about my case and always explain in detail. If you left her a message on her cell/email she would response to you asap. This proved that Ms Sara really cares about her clients and how passionate she is about her job.
