Excellent Attorney / Custody Case
Angela was a court appointed guardian in my child custody case. Over the past year, Angela was a huge part of mine and my family's life. She was very thorough in her investigations, she did not show or allow favoritism, and she stayed in constant contact via phone or email to check in on the children involved. Overall, Angela is very pleasant to work with, she treats everyone with respect, and I would use her again as my own attorney. A+++++++

excellent work.
I have used Ms. Woodall's services twice in the last dozen years in family court. While these situations are never pleasant, I have been satisfied with her work in both cases. It isn't difficult to find an attorney who will run up your bill with phone calls and letters that accomplish nothing. But many times, you are better served with a more rational, measured approach. Ms. Woodall was excellent counsel with good strategy and methods. She kept me informed and confident that things would work out as we intended. I would definitely use her again.

Divorce
I have read all these reviews about Ms Woodall...... When she did my Divorce(several years ago) it was as stated......paperwork was filed and I was Divorced in about 30 to 40 days. Never had a problem with Ms Woodall or her staff. I would recommend her to any one needing advice or representation in a Divorce case

Thank you very much for the nice comment. We strive very hard to pay full attention to all of our clients and work efficiently and closely with our clients. We realize that issues in family law are very personal and emotional. I appreciate the positive feedback and am glad we could serve you.

A True Angel
Mrs Woodall does not usually do traffic violations but she was kind enough to take this case I was falsely charged of trying to conceal a tag when I was arrested for driving a 50cc moped with a suspended license The solicitor wanted me to spend several days in jail plus $3000.00 dollar fine and 20 hours of community service. Mrs Woodall sent a few emails to the court solicitor pointing out that I did not have to register any motor bike under 50cc . I was only convicted of driving without a license I served no time in jail and my fine was dropped to $300 .00 Thankyou Mrs Woodall

Anglea Woodall
I have used Angie for a divorce case and modification of child support. She got me a fair settlement in my divorce and came through for me on the modification. She always responds in a timely manner and even responded to an emergency text late on a Wednesday night. I will continue to use her in the future should the need arise and recommend her highly.

I have used Angela Woodall for many years now.
Angela , Is a very hard working Attorney and always does what she says. She is good to keep in contact via email, text or calls. I have hired her for 2 cases, both pretty big. First case was a divorce which was contested. Then my second major case is an adoption. Which we are almost currently thru with. I would refer her to everyone I know. She is a fighter and she fights for your best interest. Mrs. Woodall is very professional, in all manners. I wouldn't use any one else but Angela Woodall.

Ms. Woodall and important part of our family
Ms. Woodall has been handling an estate for us since 2007. She has also done 2 separate wills for the family. She has become an intricate part of our family, not only as our attorney but our confidant. I will definately use her in the future.

Slow, but determined and faithful to her client
Ms. Woodall's office handled my uncontested divorce very well. Though they were a bit difficult to reach at times, making the process take longer than it should have, I don't blame them as during my divorce it seems other attorneys were having issues with the court system moving slower than normal. Her rates were reasonable and she was very knowledgeable about the law and my options. She was adept at discouraging my ex-wife from harassing me and attempting to change the terms of the divorce to force me to pay more in attorney fees (in other words, Ms. Woodall isn't greedy; she did what was best for her client in good faith, in my opinion).

Thank for the good review. I appreciate it very much. My office works tirelessly on my cases. I do pride myself on working with clients and their financial situations. One mostly hears the complaints, but it is super nice to hear about the good job done. Thank you

Horrible - has record of separating siblings between homes for no good reason.
My encounter - My divorcing spouse wanted to cherry-pick among our 'same-blood' children during our divorce. Angie's judge-recommendation was to award 'division' of our children, between homes, instead of awarding them to stay together, between homes. --Is that looking out for our children's best interests? really?... I unfortunately discovered later I was not the only one she did this to during her practice of law. Ask yourself, who separates young brothers and sisters of the same bloodline? --Angie does I've found, and does it regularly. Caution -check her records.

Response from Angela Woodall October 12, 2020
Dear Mr. Price, I am sorry that you were/are dissatisfied with the Judge's order. I make recommendations, not decisions, as a Guardian Ad Litem in cases. After 2-3 days in Court with the Judge, the Court makes the decisions, not me. I know you want to complain about this, but taking it out on me is disingenuous. Some children play a major role, due to their advanced age, in choosing a parent to live with and the Judge decides. You know this. You're a good father, be happy for them.

Worst Nightmare of my life
Angela Woodall is without a doubt the worse lawyer I have ever encountered. Her office looks like it just came out of a cardboard box, She claimed to be an expert on family law but when we went to mediation the opposing counsel schooled her like she was a pre-law undergrad. Every-time she needed a document for my case she asked me to print it because her printer was small and too expensive to use. After it became evident that the divorce was not going to be as simple as she promised she withdrew from the case without notice. If she is your lawyer dismiss her immediately before you get screwed over as well. I am posting this anonymously as I have a pending complaint against her with the GA Bar.

Response from Angela Woodall June 20, 2019
I'm sorry this client is disappointed. Withdrawal from a case is never done unless it is absolutely necessary. It is important for a client to listen to his/her attorney and the client and the attorney have a good working relationship. Unfortunately, when those things do not happen it is necessary for the attorney to withdraw and the client obtain further counsel. I'm sorry that this client was disappointed with my office. I share a lovely suite with another attorney in a new building well accommodated and supplied for professional services. I often give the client the option of providing documents and printing documents, should they desire to do so, to help save on cost of their case. I have suitable and professional equipment to operate my practice. I believe that this is an unfair assessment from a client who chose to proceed on his own without further advice from counsel. I hope that future clients will also read my great reviews.

****DO NOT HIRE THIS ATTORNEY ****
I hired Ms. Woodall in 2017, I told her that I needed an attorney that would have my best interest during my divorce. In my opinion What I got was an attorney who was not knowledgeable about the law and constantly asking for money, though we never made it to court. I continuously asked her what my case status was and have you talked to the other attorney. In my opinion it seemed I would almost have to force her to contact my wife's lawyer. It is my opinion that she was never aggressive, she would say I just need another payment to take us to the end of the case but there was never an end. After almost a year of seemingly no results. I asked her to please remove herself from the case. I filed for a hearing myself and hired another attorney. Surprise, surprise I was divorced in a month. From this new attorney I learned that I didn't have to pay the whole mortgage on a house I didn't live in and that my ex wife should have paid at least half. My new attorney asked why I never got an emergency hearing? She said a judge would have made her pay because she had no vested interests to do so. In my opinion that would have been nice to know from Ms. Woodall. I wound up paying the entire mortgage for a year. Then the new lawyer asked me why I was giving my wife 35% of a house she did not buy, never paid mortgage in, and her name was not on the deed. My new attorney explained that she could have gotten that percentage much lower. In my opinion that would have also been nice to know from Ms. Woodall. Instead Ms. Woodall worked a 65% to 35% split. I never write reviews but I am making a special exception for Ms. Woodall. There are thousands of good attorneys in the Atlanta to Dallas GA area, in my opinion she is not one of them. Save your self some time and money by always check reviews when hiring an attorney. In my opinion run from any attorney with low rating on Avvo and other such sites.

Response from Angela Woodall December 27, 2018
I am very sorry that Mr. Wilcox is disappointed in my services. Many facts about his case are left out of this review. It is not necessary to comment on those as this is his perspective of the case. After many months of not paying, it was necessary to send a bill for further representation or I would need to withdraw from his case. Withdrawing from a client's case is always a very last resort, and after many months of trying to work with Mr. Wilcox on paying his invoice. I will always work with a client if they will work with me. Apparently he had the resources to pay a second attorney and I am glad that his case came to an end for him. I encourage all clients to have an on-going and open relationship with my office about their invoicing so there are no surprises.

DO NOT HIRE ANGELA WOODALL!!!
After paying over$3000.00 to get a modification for visitation and get my ex-wife with contempt (since she decided to change the visitation schedule outside of the paperwork) it took months to finally get to court and Angela wanted to settle outside of court. Once I stated that I wanted to go in front of the judge she stated that she would have to "withdraw" herself from the case and could no longer represent me making me settle on something I did not agree to because I could not afford another attorney at the time. I would not recommend her to anyone! Please use caution when thinking about hiring this person to represent you. She is NOT looking out for anybody's best interest but herself! She talks a good game in the office but doesnt have much confidence in court and will try to settle outside of court instead of going before a judge and fighting for what you want!

Clients that don't want to assume responsibility for themself or their choices are always dissatisfied, no one can make those kind of people happy, it is easier for them to blame everyone else.

Forgot To File My Divorce
After waiting 7 weeks for my divorce to be final & the office not returning my phone calls, I called the courthouse to find out paperwork was missing. Apparently the Motion & Final has been sitting on someone's desk for the last several weeks.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Nov 01
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Angie and I were opposing counsel on a very nasty case years ago. She is a pleasure to work with and always does right by her clients. She appealed one case that was so significant, it made new the law in divorce cases. Highly recommend."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Sep 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Angela Woodall works in one of the most thankless areas of the law - handling divorce and custody cases. Most people will never be happy with the results they achieve and never understand how much worse the result would be without a caring and effective attorney representing them. My hat is off to Ms Woodall & I am happy to have the opportunity to endorse her."
