I was injured in an automobile accident where a teenager rear-ended me while I was stopped in a line of traffic. His vehicle and mine were both totaled and two pickups in front of me were damaged. I left in an ambulance with head and back injuries. I have been unable to return to work in over two years as I teach finance courses and must stand 8 to 10 hours per class. Richard Wood has been very caring and recognizes the physical injuries I have sutained. He provided me with a video and met with me personally to prepare for our depositions. I do not believe I could have found a better lawyer than Richard Wood and his assistant, Melissa.

We have been consuming legal services for more than thirty years.
We have never been more satisfied with an attorney's services than we have with Mr. Wood.
He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the law and procedure.
He clearly commands the respect of the local legal community and our local judiciary .
Mr. Wood combines incredible legal skill with a genuinely likeable personality.
He is self-effacing, modest and possesses an excellent sense of humor. He does not pick a fight but he does not run from a fight. I feel completely comfortable with his advice and completely safe when he is defending me. If all of the lawyers in the world had his skills and temperament there would be far fewer days in court and the world would be a much happier place.

Richard is a very knowledgeable attorney with a clear desire to help those in need of the best possible legal representation. If you are injured and have a claim in his area, you would be well served by seeking his consult.
