AN ATTORNEY THAT GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND......
I'm normally not the type that would take the time to write a review for a company or someone, but I couldn't hesitate to do this after my experience with Ric Woodward. From the very beginning, of presenting my case to him and explaining what needed to be done, he immediately took action. Not only did he show concern and willingness, through the entire process, he always made sure that no matter what I requested, he did everything in the best interest of my son. I would extremely recommend Ric to any of my friends or family, or to anyone in need of a family law attorney. He will get the job done as quickly as possible and make sure everything is done in the best interest of everyone involved. I never had a problem getting a hold of him. I never disagreed with any of his actions on any matter. He has made a huge difference in my life and the relationship that I have with my son. I can't explain in words how grateful I am for having the opportunity of working with him.

Excellent attorney!
Ric represented me through mediation and my divorce settlement agreement in 2018. We achieved a great outcome. After one year, my ex was not following the agreement. He helped me to file a motion of enforcement and represented me both as the petitioner in my motion and as a respondent to an additional motion filed by my ex. The outcome was as good as it could possibly be. My motion was enforced by the court. He is responsive, honest and fair in his pricing. He provides detailed monthly accounting and he truly cares. He will give you honest and straight forward advice and his experience speaks volumes. He is not an emotionally driven attorney, he saves you time and money by arguing when it matters and not when it doesn’t despite the tactics of other attorneys. I highly recommend him for all your family law needs. I am so grateful.

Divorce
I had to hire an attorney after 29 years of marriage. I had never needed an attorney before this matter. I Was not sure what to expect. Ric was very straightforward upon meeting him for the first time. I felt comfortable with him. He walked me through the process, and explained everything thoroughly along the way. He was very attentive, and always responded to any, and all of my questions in a very timely manner. Often quicker than I would have expected. The end results could not have turned out better. (Thanks Ric ) God forbid, I ever need a family lawyer again, but if I did I would not hesitate to contact.... Ric Woodward attorney again !

Recent Case using Eric Woodward regarding Family Law
I would highly recommend Ric Woodward who recently represented me in a family law case. He is honest, fair and can be trusted to represent your best interest. Ric took the necessary time to meet with me in person and prepare for my case before trial. I'm extremely happy with the results. Sincerely, George

Highly recommended
I was referred to Ric for my divorce case, and after talking to many, many attorneys, I felt most comfortable with Ric. He took the time look up my case and explain to me what was going on over the phone when I called, and was always very responsive when I called or emailed with any questions or issues. He walked me through all the steps and possibilities so I could make informed decisions, and in the end, I had a favorable outcome without having to go to trial. He gave my case personal attention and had a very reasonable retainer. I would use him again, and have referred friends.

Absolutely looked out for my best interests.
Mr. Woodward helped me with common sense advice all through my divorce. He made my divorce process almost painless. He provided sound legal advice and kept my mentality focused when needed. He directed me through the whole mediation process wonderfully. He came up with with alternative options that were not in my realm of thinking at the time. He didn't hold my hand through the whole divorce but was there with good judgement when I needed it. Thank you greatly for guiding me and not over working my case just to make more money. You are a class act.

Mr. Woodward is very diligent and meticulous with his cases. He is also military friendly. I couldn’t have hired a better lawyer. He's extremely knowledgeable and takes his cases very seriously. I definitely recommend him to anyone that is going through a life changing event such as a divorce.

Kind and caring Lawyer
I used a website and posted about my problem after calling a few different law firms directly and having them tell me they couldn't help. But when I got the call from Ric, it was on a Friday after his office had already been closed. But that didn't matter as he was helpful and help me set up an appointment, and even when I called back a bit later to change the times slightly, he was just as accommodating. He helped talk me through the problem, always open to calls, and making sure he kept me up to date with what he was doing for me and to help me with my case. I ended up not having to hire him fully after he looked through it and he was able to help me with a consultation alone, but i would fully recommend Ric for anyone looking for a Family Law lawyer.

Wonderful Representation
Ric was attentive and responded quickly from the very start. I spoke with him personally on my very first call to inquire about my case. Ric is very knowledgeable and kept me in the loop every step of the way. I didn’t have to guess next steps or wonder what direction I should take with my case as he led me through the process and set expectations for the journey we had to take. He was concise as to not waste time and was extremely fair in all aspects of his service. I know I will need future representation with my case and I will 100% reach out to Ric when I do.

Excellent Attorney
Ric is everything one would want in an attorney for dissolution of marriage. He was patient, and listened to my concerns. At the initial consultation, he explained the entire process. As he walked me through the next couple months, I was familiar with the entire process, because he didn't miss a beat and had already explained everything. He was responsive and I never felt rushed either in the office or on the phone. He was responded to emails promptly. His fees were extremely reasonable and there wasn't anything that came up unexpectedly. He made sure everything was in my best interest. He was even able to resolve the situation quicker than originally planned. I would highly recommend him should you ever find yourself in a situation where you need a family lawyer. He helped me out and I will always be grateful! Thank you Ric!
