Son's Lawyer
I would like to say how BLESSED and THANKFUL I am for the amazing and outstanding job that Christopher Woodward did as my son's attorney. My son was already on a felony probation and was also charged with a new 1st degree case that was reduced to a 2nd degree and avoided both a felony conviction and prison time. If you are looking for a lawyer that will represent your loved one to the fullest. Christopher Woodward is the best choice and I would highly recommend him in every way.

Over the last 20 years, my family and I have used Chris’s valuable expertise. I couldn’t be more thankful for his knowledge, compassion, and support. Most recently, he was hired for a 4th time in a charge involving my stepson. Because of Chris’s expertise, it resulted in no conviction. He has amazing with rapport with clients, judges, and district attorneys. I’ve always felt supported and kept up to date on the entire process. Thank you again!!

Christopher was a referral. During my consultation he built a relationship and focused on the support he would provide me as my representative. He worked diligently to settle my case. He was very communicative. He demonstrated empathy. My case was set as “no bill”. I’m beyond thankful for Christopher’s efforts. His knowledge and experience was noticed. I strongly recommend Christopher as your attorney.

SUPER LAWYER TO ME
I had never needed the Services of an Attorney before this time in my entire life, not until four months ago when he represented me in a case; it was a very stressful situation. I was introduced to Chris by a family member; he was kind and understanding and helped make a clear action plan that was best for me. He explained the whole process to us ahead of time and walked me through all the steps. He was attentive and acted professionally. He always kept me informed about my next steps and what was happening at all times. He was very patient and understanding throughout the whole process. He would answer all my questions and concerns promptly, return my phone calls and text messages immediately, and always advise me on what to do next. He has a great attitude. He was very helpful and patient, guiding me through my long case process. He encouraged me not to budge under pressure, always watching out for my best interests. I am very grateful, Chris. He assisted in making sure things happened the way we wanted and got me a Pled to 12 months of deferred Probation. After completing the probation period, the case will be dismissed without a final conviction. Thanks, Chris.

Attentive and Supportive
Mr. Woodward was very detailed in what would be happening in my case. He made sure I was prepared and informed for court ahead of time, never last minute. If I had questions, he responded very quickly and detailed. I’ve never had to appear in court so everything was new and extremely scary, Mr. Woodward explained everything in detail. He is a very respectful family man…in and out of the courtroom. I was impressed when I Googled him, with his background and experience it gives him an edge in the courtroom. I cannot thank him enough for his help and will forever be grateful!

Recommended 100%
One of the best lawyers I’ve dealt with. He is professional and knowledgeable, but most importantly truly cares about the persons that he represents. I am grateful for the legal assistance that he provided our family. We could not have asked for a better outcome. I recommend him without reservation.

100% I would only recommend Christopher Woodward, He is the best !!
Mr. Woodward represented me in a case recently, he was court appointed and far exceeded any expectations I had from my past experiences with court appointed attorney's. He is genuinely an all around , really good person, despite who you are or what you have done. Not for one second did he make me feel any less. His integrity and hard work shine through in the courtroom and his personality, as a person talking to me. He has a way of talking to you and making you feel safe, with your future in his hands. I cannot stress enough to anyone how good of a person he is. He is beyond professional. He is beyond polite and respectful. He is just a 100% authentically good human being and a badass lawyer. He didn't miss one little detail in my case . Anyone would have thought he was a paid lawyer. Let me give you an example of how good he is....I have an extensive criminal history to say the the least and Mr. Woodward took two state jail felonies with enhancements (2 paragraphs on each) and had enhancements removed and 1244a both felonies. So instead of prison time , Mr.Woodward got me time served. Those are the facts and Christopher Woodwards results in the courtroom speak for them self. Mr. Woodward your hard work a the dues you have paid, have paid off tremendously in your life and anyone one you represent, I thank you so much for everything. I WILL NOT RECOMMEND ANY ATTORNEY EXCEPT CHRISTOPHER WOODWARD. again Thank You so much.

#1 ATTORNEY IN MY BOOK
Mr Woodard represented me as a court appointed attorney in Rockwall county. His professionalism and promptness exceeded my expectations. Because he did such a good job I fired my attorney in Dallas I had already paid who did nothing at all for me and hired Chris to represent me on 6 charges I had in Dallas county. If I would not have hired Chris for Dallas I would probably would still be sitting there. Unfortunately I have made many mistakes in my past & have dealt with a few attorneys. But by far Chris Woodard again with his professionalism, knowledge, honesty & experience is the best criminal defense attorney I have had. I recommend him 100% and put my full trust in him. I wish I would have known about Chris before I had paid double the price to an attorney who didn't care.

Awesome Attorney
At lot of people go through life never finding themselves in legal trouble. I was one of those people until recently. I felt helpless and overwhelmed in the beginning. Then, I met Chris. Chris is very knowledgeable, very available for questions, and easy to communicate with. He helped me make sense of the process, and he got the best possible outcome for me, dismissal! Chris seemed to take a genuine interest in getting a positive outcome. He actually cared! I'd recommend Chris in a heartbeat!

Awesome attorney
Excellent attorney I was charged with a Federal criminal case in far west texas. Chris fought the government’s request to detain me and won. I remained undetained on conditions of release until sentencing. He was able to get me the rarest of results in the federal system, PROBATION. My family and I can’t thank him enough.
