    I average about 20 traffic court cases per week. I have a very high success rate at having these tickets dismissed and not recorded on my client's record.

I strive to ensure that my clients understand the details of their case. The number one complaint I get from clients who have had other attorneys represent them in the past is that they took some action on their case, but have no idea why. I want my clients to be informed so that they can make the appropriate decisions on their case.

 

As a result of my clients understanding, they are better able to play an active role in their defense. Couple the client's understanding and participation with my legal knowledge and together, we get favorable results.

If you want PROFESSIONAL, Caring, Concerned, and Results Hire This Attorney
I had called about my issue and court date. I had forgotten my court date and the small payment I needed to pay. His administration is amazing. She called me and asked if I still wanted him to take care of my problem. I said yes. He has already gotten all my paperwork before I even paid a penny. I paid over the phone and an email receipt was sent to me. I didn't have to drive downtown, look for parking, pay for parking, and walk a long way amongst a crowd of people. I hate stress so I appreciate working with Attorney Woods who lifted the stress from me. Thank You =-]

So convenient!
Had a ticket for running a red light. I called this firm because by the time I took off work, went to downtown Memphis, paid to park, wait in long lines, it was worth $75 for someone to take care of it for me. I was expecting to have to pay $135 in court cost and come to find out it was dismissed without court cost! So I actually saved money by calling these guys! Thanks

So convenient
I received a letter in the mail which I was very skeptical about but after doing my research for this company I decided to hire an attorney. This was the best decision I made after calling Stephanie she made me feel sure that this is going to be taken care of and after court I received an email about court and my ticket being resolved. My experience was great and saved me a lot of time

speeding ticket handled quickly
Got a speeding ticket passing through Memphis on I55. Before too much time went by got letter from BBJWLAW and a couple of other lawyers in Memphis. I decided to call a couple but only Stephanie picked up. She explained how it worked, they then resolved issue quickly and efficiently. Hopefully never need a lawyer in Memphis but if I do BBJWLAW will be first choice.

Confidence is key
This is the 2nd time I've used Main Street and Mr. Wood to address speeding tickets in court for me. They're very attentive to my needs and have handled my case with care and confidence

Great
Mr Woods and his staff handled my traffic ticket and got it off my record. Saved me a day off work, a long drive, and a stressful day. It was so easy to do. Called and gave the information and they handled everything. They stayed in touch with me by phone and confirmed when it was taken care of. Everyone was kind and professional. Hope I don't have to use them again, but if I do I will use this firm.

Traffic Ticket dismissed
I have only good words for the attorneys at South Main law firm and their staff. I initially spoke with the Legal Assistant Stephanie who was very professional and helpful . Mr Wood represented me in a traffic case (yes I was speeding ) and got it dismissed with only court costs and no points. Much appreciated!

Really Doesn't Care
I hired Mr. Wood to represent my son. He did not return phone calls, he did not show up to court, my son spent extra days in jail because he over books himself. He did not notify you of what was going on and never seemed to care.
