About me

I am an experienced Texas family law attorney.  By "experienced," I mean that not only have I helped hundreds of clients achieve their objectives on issues ranging from custody, visitation, complex marital property division and issues regarding  clients' pets, but experienced as well with the personal challenges, confusion and resentments that can cloud anyone's judgment in a divorce case.


I went through divorce myself when I was a young mother (and not yet a lawyer), and learned a great deal about the right and wrong ways to represent a client. I'll never forget the time my own very prominent and expensive attorney showed up to court without knowing whether my child was a boy or a girl. That just won't happen at the Law Office of Wendy Wood. 


Since then, I completed law school with a then young son.  I have been fortunate to practice family law in many areas - from Harris County to Dallas County, Tarrant County to Collin County and now at home in Brazos County and surrounding areas.  I have happily remarried.  I am also proud to say my son has learned from the trials of my family law experiences.  He is now a graduate of Texas A&M University and wants to be a lawyer himself.


Please feel free to call my office or to send me an email (  to discuss your particular family law issues.  I will do my best to give your matter the attention to detail that you deserve.
