Stephanie was extremely professional. She comes from a long line of lawyers, and really understands estate planning. Was able to lay out all of the options in lay terms, so that a decision could be made on the planning of my estate. I look forward to working with her more in the future.

Very thorough and helped me set up my will, advance directives and trust plans. She made me think of issues and contingencies that I hadn't thought about. Highly recommend

I had to deal with an guardianship accounting issue dating back to 2005. I visited multiple lawyers prior to meeting Ms. Woods and found that they really didn't seem to have a full grasp of what needed to be done to properly file the guardianship accounting paperwork.
Within ten minutes of our initial meeting, it was clear Ms. Woods knew the exact steps to take to get the paperwork in proper order. She was able to give my wife and I very specific instructions on the paperwork we would need, the paperwork she would need and the paperwork the court would need. She also asked us questions we didn't know to ask and that none of the other lawyers even brought up.
With her guidance and the assistance of her associates Karen and Norma, we were able to get all of the paperwork put together in a couple of weeks (which is even more impressive when noting these were holiday weeks). The paperwork has now been properly filed with the court and we now know how and when to get this paperwork filed for future years.
I cannot begin to stress how much peace of mind having someone who knows the process as well as Ms. Woods does can provide. I would highly recommend her for any family law matter.

Stephanie helped us execute a trust in a situation where there was a great deal of bitterness in the family. With her knowledge of the law and her light, professional touch, we got through it without a single argument. We will always be grateful to her for her kind assistance during this very difficult time in our lives.

Ms. Woods answered a question posted on AVVO and I contacted her for a consulation. We spoke for nearly an hour, she allowed me to fully explain my situation. Her knowlege regarding Elder Law and more specifically the applicable case law, Levine v Levine, was a tremendous help. Ms. Woods represented a compass where I had been navigating through unfamiliar beaurocratic terrain! Her advise was sensible and considered the many outcomes I might be faced with. With regard to family law, financial disputes, guardianships and complicated proceedings she was spot on! If you find yourself suddenly cut off from an elder loved one and are unfamiliar with guardianships and "undue influence" your first course of action should be to contact an attorney with expertise. Stepahinie Woods is clearly an advocate for the vulnerable, call her.
