Sophie helped me on a personal injury case. She was great. Very professional and very honest. She never tried to push me in any direction, offered honest guidance and specific legal advice. She always made me feel like my small case was just as important as any of the big cases. Sophie is also very down to earth and easy to relate and talk to, things that I feel are a huge asset to developing a great attorney/client relationship. Sophie walked me through each step of the process so I was never caught off guard. And she fought hard, really hard, to get me the best settlement she could. I think the best review I can give would be that while I hope I never have to use an attorney again, if I did it would be her.

Sophie Woodworth has handled my legal issues with professionalism, empathy, and discretion. She always makes time for her clients and it someone whose council I would always seek.

Ms. Woodworth was responsive to my needs. Her law firm was highly recommended by another attorney. I needed someone to negotiate a severance agreement for me. She was extremely knowledgeable and was able to offer me all of my options in the initial meeting. She was able to help me resolve my issues in a very timely manner and was able to get a great outcome for me. I was able to settle with my former employer in less than two weeks. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has an issue with a former employer.

Sophie is a highly skilled attorney with a first-rate legal mind. She cares deeply about her clients and correcting the injustices that have been done to them. I strongly, and without reservation, endorse and recommend her as an attorney.
