Outstanding
Speaking from the perspective of having used 4 attorneys in my life, Christina is the most professional, straight forward, no nonsense attorney I have ever encountered. She never mislead me and made sure I understood every bridge we were crossing. She is responsive and timely. She is tough and fair. I HIGHLY recommend her. I consider her to be a blessing in mine and my son's life. I had a very difficult situation that required her attention for several different matters over a period of at least 3.5 years and she never once waivered in her dedication to my family and I.

Modification of the Parent/Child Relationship from my Previous Orders
I consulted with 5 different attorneys through out the course of my issue. I sought out Christina due to her support of empathy, personally relating to my current issue and made me feel like a human and took the matter at hand serious. Regarding communication, always responded in a timely manner. Very supportive (even if I was having a melt down due to rising issues regarding my reasoning for seeking legal guidance) Paid attention to detail and always looked at both sides of the case in support of the best interest of my child. Office staff was very caring and kind! Excited my expectations and helped me get the best out come for my child.

Christina Woods Duffy provided outstanding, five-star PLUS service. She went above and beyond when she did not have to and graciously guided my family and me when we found ourselves in a very stressful situation.

Excellent
A friend recommended Christina to me after I was served papers from my ex suing me for custody of my son. Lost, desperate, hopeless, & afraid, I called Christina for a consultation. She was able to get me in THE FOLLOWING DAY although 2 other attorneys that I contacted could not even meet with me before my hearing. Christina patiently sat and listened to my entire story - which detailed 10years of family life and hardships - and was rather unorganized and probably seemed more like rambling than anything. But she found ways to relate to my situation & shared details of her own experiences. She took the time to empathize & listen & then explained my options carefully. i truly feel like Christina CARES about me, my son, my family, & the outcome of my case. There is no doubt in my mind that she will exhaust all legal avenues and pursue any viable options to help me... as if it were her own family. If you want an attorney who will take time for you, who will listen to your every concern, & who will fight for what is fair, she is an excellent choice. She may not be the most inexpensive attorney out there, but you get what you pay for... and when something as important as one's family is on the line, we don't want the cheapest or most inexperienced lawyer representing us. Christina is timely in responding to messages, emails, even texts. And has kept me updated and informed every step of the way. I am confidently recommending Christina for anyone who is facing legal issues in family law.

Our Lawyer
She was very prompt and diligent when working on our case. We always received answers to any questions we had in a timely manner. She also explained documents to us when we didn't quite understand some of the terms used and took her time with us till we understood. We are very pleased with the effort made by her and her staff. We would use her again for our legal matters and we highly recommend her.

Extremely Pleased
I hired Christina for my custody case. I've got through this system multiple times & my lawyers had never really advocated for me until Christina. She is an amazing lawyer who will go to any lengths necessary to make sure your case is treated fairly. I highly recommend her to anyone needing an amazing attorney!!

Wonderful Attorney
I hired Christina Woods to handle my divorce mainly because she had multiple offices which was convenient since I live in a different town than I work in. I met with her the first time just for a consultation and hired her immediately. She has been amazing every step of the way - clearly explaining the process, updating me immediately of any changes, and her fees were better than any other quotes I had received. I already spoke with her about helping with another small legal filing issue following my divorce and have recommended her to any one I hear of looking for legal advice or counsel.

My case was thought to be an easy solution. However the defendant does not want to play by the rules. Christina has gone above and beyond to get the defendant to come to the table and sort things out, but she refuses to. Christina has made sure that when the defendant don't play nice that she is held acciuntable and held in contempt of court and she is sent to jail on large bonds.

Definitely Recommend
The moment we met with Christina at our free consultation we knew she was the attorney for us. She listened to all of our concerns and was up front and honest about everything. From the moment we hired her she made herself available anytime of the day to answer any and all questions and concerns. She always answered us back right away. And Jennifer, her paralegal, is just as amazing! She, too, made herself available just the same. We knew every detail about our case, dates, & times and were properly notified in a timely manner about everything. We have and will continue to recommend her to everyone. She is definitely our go to lawyer!

Christina-2 Them-0
I've been involved with Ms. Woods for legal representation on two separate occasions and both times she protected the interests of her client. I was involved in a divorce proceeding and Ms. Woods represented my spouse, while I used an attorney who seemed competent enough and had been recommended to me. I only spoke to my attorney a few times on the phone and only saw him for the first time right before the hearing. We met prior to seeing the judge and Ms. Woods devastated my attorney. I left the courthouse with barely the shirt on my back. When my wife and I later reconciled, I learned just how effective Christina had been in her defense. More recently, my wife and I were involved in another legal issue and there was no doubt that we would hire Ms. Woods to represent us. The matter was resolved in our favor and again demonstrated her strong commitment to our situation. The next time we need an attorney, our first call will be to Christina Woods.

Grateful!
Hi, my name is Amberly. I have hired Christina on at least two different cases and during these events I was beyond grateful with the service she provided for me. Not only did she help me keep my daughter but she also helped me see things in a whole new prospective. She is very reasonable with her prices and she will work with you. I will for sure most likely re-hire her if I ever need the assistance of an attorney in the future represent my case. Thank you Christina and Jennifer for all the help you guys have done so far. Keep up the good work!

Only if you want top notch!
Ms. Woods was hands down the best decision I made regarding my case. Anytime I needed something - she was always right there. Even after our case was settled, Ms. Woods continued to eagerly answer all of my questions and concerns. Conflicts resulting in legal representation can become financially troubling at times. Ms. Woods was always understanding of the financial strain. If ever placed in a legal situation again - Ms. Woods will be my first choice.

She restored my hope
When I first walked in to Ms. Woods office I had just left a child support hearing that did not go very well for me, I was disheartened, afraid, upset and had very little hope for any help from anyone, and she was my last stop before heading back to Lubbock. I had completely given up on lawyers and judges and saw very little promise of ever there being an improvement in my circumstances. I had very little money and not a promise of making much more than I currently was, I was in the middle of unenforceable custody orders, and up to my eye balls in past due child support. What Ms. Woods did for me was see past the black and white on the paperwork and beyond some of the things being held against me, and beyond my financial ability to repay and dove head first in to my case with bravado and tenacity knowing full well the cards had been stacked against me pretty high. Any other lawyer would have sent me on my way packing as fast as I had walked in her office. What Ms. Woods endured during the course of was stonewall after stonewall from the opposing side as well as very little to work with during the case. Ms Woods endured countless nights of texting me after counseling sessions where I was upset and asked her endless amounts of questions. One night after a particularly horrible session she stayed on the phone with me the whole time I drove from Levelland to Lubbock until I was calmed down and able to feel comfortable with moving forward in the process. I have never been made feel like a "lost cause" or "waste of time" and her staff has also treated me with respect and dignity just as she has from the moment I walked into her office. I am confident Ms. Woods has always acted in mine and my childs best interests and always advised me to conduct myself in a manner that would never be detrimental to my case. I can't say that about the other lawyers I've had in the past for this same situation. Ms. Woods finally HEARD what I was saying and cut through the attorney jargon to finally understand what I had been enduring for the last 8 years. I without a doubt will always be indebted to Ms. Woods for her perseverance and guts to handle my custody modification. I can't be grateful enough for the hard work that has been put into my case. She has restored my opinion in lawyers and brought hope to a case that I thought I had no chance of ever making improvements on.

Honest and Fair
Christina and her staff took my case and I felt like they cared about my problems. Anytime I called my questions were satisfactorily answered. She never promised me anything that didn't happen. All in all they are great at what they do and I highly recommend them.

Awesome attorney!
Christina is an excellent lawyer!!! I have referred her to as many people as I can. She is fair priced and very honest which is hard to come by in attorneys! She pushed for things in my case that my previous attorney had never mentioned. Had I known how great she was I would've hired her from the beginning! Id recommend her to anyone!

Professional and knowledgeable
I hired Ms. Woods to represent myself and my child in a complex family court matter after I went to a free consultation with her. She was upfront and honest about every aspect of my case and gave me honest, unbiased advice. She was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to hear me out and answer every question I had. During the entire case she and her Paralegal kept in contact with me and all my calls, texts, and e-mails were answered a promptly as possible. My case was highly emotional and stressful and there were times that I became flustered but Christina remained professional through it all while still being compassionate. I would and have recommended her to anyone who needs a lawyer and would hire her again if need be.

Great Lawyer
Christina is handling my custody case. She was very upfront about how the case could go, and helped me prepare for both outcomes. She keeps me in the loop whenever something happens, and is working hard on all matters. Christina has looked out for me through the entire thing. She didn't charge me an arm and a leg like a lot of other attorneys wanted to for my family matter. She plays chess not checkers when it comes to my case and is working as hard as possible to win for me. I do not regret my decision to hire her nor would I change lawyers at any point. She is definitely a wise choice and i would refer her to any of my family or friends in need of an attorney.

Professional and Proactive
I had a minor encounter with law enforcement. Christina took an interest, didn't minimize it and communicated clearly. The only time things went "bad" was when I ignored her advice. She even helped me fix that problem. If I ever need an attorney again, for whatever reason, she is who I'll call.
