About Byron

Learn Byron’s areas of practice.

My name is Woody Ketcham and I was born and raised right here in Alabama.  I am passionate about helping those who have been accused of a crime. Navigating the criminal justice system is a scary process and can be quite intimidating and confusing. Ketcham Law is here to give you access to the legal system and I would be honored to help you or those close to you who are faced with a criminal law matter.

Excellent Choice
After consulting with several well known attorneys in the area I decided to put my trust in Mr. Ketcham. He laid the facts out straight with me and explained in detail what obstacles we had in front of us. He did not make outlandish promises which is what I saw in other attorneys. He was in constant communication with me throughout the entire process which was great considering it was a very stressful times. He over delivered on the results which we were both extremely excited over. I would recommend him to anyone looking for great representation.

Goes above and beyond to get his clients the best possible outcome!!
I contacted Woody via a friend's referral and I am so entirely thankful I did. Woody was very quick to set up a consultation with me, from which I had left feeling very confident. Along with a solid game plan, he stayed in close contact with me throughout my case and made sure I was nothing short of prepared for each court date. Understanding my current financial position, Woody graciously worked with me to create a payment plan for which most lawyers are not so willing to do. Ultimately, though, Because of Woody's expertise and diligence, he won me my case! Not only is he the best, but he is humble and is genuinely invested in his clients. Words cannot express how grateful I am for what he was able to do for me!

Woody is great at what he does
I went to Woody's office with a possession charge and a public infix charge, told him the facts, and he told me he would handle it. Not only did Woody clear me of the possession charge, but he was also able to get the intox charge dropped as well. He did everything he said he would do and more. I would recommend him to anyone and would definitely go to him again (if needed).

First rate attorney.
After a horrible experience while I was at a concert on new years I found myself facing a charge that put my entire career in jeopardy and turned my life upside down. I had consulted with several lawyers and spent many hours researching lawyers in the area before I chose Woody. From step one he was top notch. He responds to calls and emails quickly and took my case very personally. What could have destroyed my career is now a thing of the past and I cannot elaborate my appreciation for Mr. Ketcham's commitment for going above and beyond in my case. Not only was he able to handle the matter without me having to drive 8 hours one way to appear in court but he was able to have my case heard 2 weeks before my official court date which given my scenario was a true testament to how much I believe he cares about his clients. Overall I am extremely pleased with Woody's capacity as a lawyer and would highly recommend him to anyone who may have found themselves in a legal situation of any severity. This attorney truly sets the standard for what an attorney should do for his clients. Thank you Woody.

Great communicator
I hired Woody for a DUI charge when I was 19. He was able to get me into a deferment program without suspension of my license. The most valuable attribute Woody brought to the table was his ability to establish a solid rapport with members of the court. I could always count on Woody to answer my calls and or emails promptly and provide sound advice when needed. A high energy, positive guy who genuinely cares about his clients. Highly recommended.

A Dynamic and Forward Thinking Attorney
Woody is an excellent attorney. He is prompt and on the task as soon as you contact him. He has insider information on how to win different aspects of your case and will work tirelessly until he accomplishes his goal of getting his client more than they could have imagined. I was pleasantly surprised at Woody's knowledge about the law as well as his willingness to work with me financially. I recommend Woody to anyone that is looking for an attorney that is going to go above and beyond their standards on the outcome of their case.

The absolute best!
Woody is the best attorney. He is professional, on time, reliable and a great person to have on your team. He is well respected in Birmingham and he has great relationships with all the courts in both Shelby and Jefferson County. I was referred to him by a friend and am very thankful. He is with you every step of the way!
