  2. Car accident
    If you are involved in a car accident, you may benefit from the services my firm offers. We know the dynamics of car crashes and can identify and weigh all the possible factors which may have played a part. For example, you are driving in the rain on an improperly graded road and an approaching car has a blow-out. It suddenly veers out of control and skids into you at 45 mph. Was it the rain, the poorly built road, the other driver (found with beer cans in the car), or the mechanic who failed.

  3. Motorcycle accident
    If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you may benefit from the services my firm provides. We know the dynamics of motorcycle crashes and can identify and weigh all the possible factors that may have played a part in your accident. We will discover who is responsible, whether insurance policies will pay for your losses, and what you can expect to recover in damages if the injury was someone else's fault.

  4. Trucking accident
    If you are involved in a trucking accident, you may benefit from my firm's services. We know the dynamics of truck crashes and can identify and weigh all the possible factors which may have been involved. Truckers falling asleep at the wheel can cause trucking accidents, as can car drivers who abruptly change lanes without signaling. Unfortunately, truck accidents can easily start a chain reaction. We will discover who is at fault and will maximize your claim.

Strong, Dedicated Defence - Highly Recommended
Mr. Wood is highly dedicated, efficient and personable young man. He was a real help to me at a time when I didn't know where to turn. I hate to think what would have happened if my friend hadn't sent me to him.

Deep in character, morals and substance
I first came across Harlan, believe it or not, through the yellow pages. i always had bad luck with lawyers in the YP, but I needed one despertely because of complicated DUI case. Unlike past lawyers, Harlan knew how to not just to handle the case, but to handle me. I was in a bad place emotionally because of alcohol abuse, but through his guidance, I was able to get to a rehab program that lasted 14 months that made all the difference and kept me out of jail. My experience with Harlan is that he goes against type with regard to all we hear about lawyers. He actually takes or returns your calls, he actually will listen, and many times tells you what his plan is. The point heere is that it reduces the amount of stress that one deals with in criminal charges and proceedings. Harlan has seen me through some rough times...most lawyers take your money and run, and give you mediocre service and many times just not prepared at court date. Not so with Harlan., He is prepared, professional and he is taking your side. Harlan knows the mind of the prosecutor- he worked as a prosecutor in Cherokee County before coming into criminal defense. He is the kind of lawyer you want and need in the courtroom. That said, it will always help that if you, as the defendant or one charged with crimes, are diligent in your responsibilities. You as the defendant must also be proactive. No lawyer is a magician. But Harlan works magic when a defedant is his partner, is proactive and doing the right thin while out on bail or probation. Harlan has helped me in DUI's probation violations and driving while suspended. He and I will also be friends and have a healthy respect for each other. And while I never want to set foot in a courtroom again as a defendant, I know that if I do, Harlan Wood will always be my first choice for representation.
