Shelly Wood is a very knowledgeable family law attorney who takes the time to understand her client's needs and is always well prepared. She was able to have my ex-husband's parental rights terminated so we could proceed with the step-parent adoption. She explained everything that we could expect along the way in terms that were easy to understand. We had the best possible outcome as my husband was able to adopt my oldest two children. We are very pleased with the quality of the service we received and I would highly recommend Shelly Wood for all of your family law needs.

I hired Shelly Wood for a child support case. She was extremely professional and also very personable. She made sure we understood every step of the process. We now have her helping us with an adoption case. I would definitely recommend Shelly as an attorney.

Shelly has been a great help and support for me while I have been going through my custody case. She helped me to relax and walk me through the proceedings so I didn't feel as anxious. She listened to my concerns and made sure I had a very complete plan in place. I highly recommend her, as I have already referred her to a friend of mine.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Ms. Wood for a considerable time and have had her as an opposing counsel as well as a Guardian ad Litem. She does a great job in both roles. She is a skilled trial lawyer and great advocate for her client.
