  • Wendy Anne Wood

    I have had the pleasure of trying two week-long jury trials with Andrea. Her attitude was optimistic without being haughty. She was extremely prepared as to all aspects of both trials. The juries responded well to her, and she brought out the best testimony from each witness. Her knowledge of evidence and procedure are thorough. I am pleased to endorse this attorney's work, professionalism and ethics.
