About Andrew

Learn Andrew’s areas of practice.

Andy Wood has been in private practice in Richmond since 1968.  After graduating from the University of Richmond with his LL.B. degree, he clerked for the Hon. John D. Butzner of the U. S. Court of Appeals and was later admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States. He is one of only a small number of attorneys in Virginia to have argued before the U. S. Supreme Court.

Andy is a Fellow of the American Law Foundation and the Virginia Law Foundation. He is also A V® rated, Martindale-Hubbell’s highest rating for legal ability and ethical standards.

In 2005, Andy received the John C. Kenny ProBono Publico Award, presented by the Richmond Bar Association for contributions to legal aid for the needy, a policy he has followed since the beginning of his legal career. Fellow attorneys interviewed for an article at the time of the award describe Andy as an “old-style, small practitioner who does a lot of stuff quietly and well” and—referring to his volunteer pro bono work—as someone who “has taken on very difficult tasks and … does a wonderful job.”

Andy and his wife, Cheryl Wood, have practiced together since 1981. Their sons are both attorneys, one practicing with Wood & Wood and the other with a firm in Portland, Oregon.
