Amazing and caring
David and his firm are amazing! They always went the extra step, making sure we understood what was happening and that we were comfortable with everything. His staff was wonderful keeping us updated and always quick to respond. Our son suffered a brain injury, David and his team went I feel like above and beyond. Thanks to their hard work and dedication our son's case was won and now we know that no matter what happens in our lives he will always be taken care of. We will be forever grateful.

Amazing!!!
My husband and I hired David Woodruff a few years ago to handle our medical malpractice lawsuit. We went into this whole process not knowing what we were getting into. David was always willing to answer questions and gave us his opinion, whether we liked the answer or not. He was a VERY hard worker, honest with us and kept us informed every step of the way. Before the conclusion of our trial, we agreed if we lost, it was not because of anything David did or did not do. We felt blessed to have him fighting on our behalf. We are forever indebted!!!
