This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Grateful to have stumbled upon such great legal counsel!
By good fortune for me, Mr. Rick Woods became my Attorney. We didn't always agree, but he stood by his guns and spoke his truth, even when I was a difficult client. When I called his office, he would call me right back; when I emailed, I didn't wait long for a response; when I was out in left field, he reeled me back in. Rick was very attentive, and approachable. It was refreshing to have someone of good character on my side. His performance in the courtroom left me proud to call him my Attorney. It is with great esteem that I highly recommend Mr. Rick Woods as one of the most reliable, and professional attorneys that I've had the pleasure to work with. Bonus: His staff is awesome!

Mr. Woods, a true professional

Rick Woods is Top Notch
Rick Woods is thorough, diligent, personable, organized, easy going, and most importantly, EFFECTIVE. His legal assistant, Julie, is first class as well. You're in good hands if Rick Woods is sitting on your side of the table in Arkansas, just as he was doing for my company and me today. He makes things happen and understands how to present clearly to a jury. If you give your problem to Rick Woods, Rick makes the problem go away.

Rick E Woods
Rick took the initiative to take my daughters case. She was involved in a bad car accident that was not fault of hers. She was injured badly, and I thought she deserved a settlement for her pain and suffering, + her hospital bills. Less than one year after Rick represented my daughter, she has a large settlement and her medical bills are paid.

Team Rick gets positive results!
I was hit by a negligent driver with no insurance a few years ago. Rick and his team were there for me when we had to fight with my insurance to do what was right! He is thorough, efficient, and fights for what is right and legal. Most of all he "listens". How many lawyers do that?
