An honest, hardworking straight-shooter.
I hired Woody for a DUI and drug possession offense and truly believe that the outcome of my case woud have not of been in my favor. Woody answered all my questions honestly regarding my case, laying out the best and worst scenarios I could face and his plan of action. Woody was very easy to reach and was personable in the sense that he remembered the specifics of my case. He always left me in charge to make the decisions but used his extensive experience to guide me in the right direction. Because of Woody, I had my DUI charge dropped and was offered diversion to have the possession removed from my record. I'd highly recommend Woodrow Thompson to anyone facing serious charges.

This firm is unparalleled in my experience. In a time that we need clarification, understanding, compassion, and competency - I called on them and they responded. They never passed judgment and they worked tirelessly to ensure that I was dealt with fairly. We ultimately prevailed and I got my reputation back. For That I owe them a huge Thank You. Dignity and Honor is important. Our legal system can be unfair and unrelenting. If you find yourself in a perilous jam - Call Mr Thompson or his team. I highly recommend them.

Highest regard for Woody Thompson
From the moment we met , we were imbued with a sense of confidence and comfort. Mr. Thompson was always available and welcoming, responding rapidly to our questions and concerns. His dogged perseverance and pursuit of every minutia resulted in dismissal of charges, not something we had really anticipated. Mr. Thompson allowed me a new lease in life.

I was so very impressed with Woody and his staff. They always let me know exactly what was going on and what I needed to do. I can never thank them enough for their time and work they put in on my case. The result was amazing!! It was far better than I expected. I would tell anyone that finds themselves in a DUI situation to call them. It was worth every penny. Thank you all!!

Our Son's DUI
Mr. Thompson did an excellent job representing our son when he was arrested by Maricopa County Deputies for a DUI in Scottsdale. Mr. Thompson did a very good job communicating with us and our son the legal process and the legal actions he was taking on behalf of our son. We were VERY satisfied with the legal outcomes. Mr. Thompson has our highest recommendation.

W Thompson, lawyer
I have had two occasions to need legal help; another lawyer recommended Woody, and he was the perfect choice. He was attentive, personable, responsive, and he was up to the job quickly. He had the knowledge needed on instant recall, speeding the process. I heartily recommend this fine person.

Professional, knowledgable, thorough ... and the results you need
I would recommend Woody Thompson for many reasons. His knowledge of the inner workings of the court systems, responsiveness to my questions, the level of care and attention provided by his staff, and, above all, the final outcome of my case: a dismissal of a charge that would have counted as a 2nd offense.

Couldn't ask for better service!!
Woody and his team are the best!!! They kept me informed in the entire process. Every question I had was answered at a pace I could understand, and in terms I could relate to. Megan was very helpful too with keeping me on schedule for my court dates. The overall outcome was better than I expected for my case. Plus I know they all did everything possible on my case to get the results they did..

Best DUI attorney in Phoenix
I called Woody Thompson as soon as I was pulled over. He talked me through everything that I needed to do. I did just as he told me. I submitted to a blood test. My BAC was a .196. I was charge with an illegal turn, DUI and extreme DUI. My attorney worked his magic and was able to get the case dismissed. The only thing that I had to do was take an online driving course for my "illegal" wide left hand turn. I recommend Woody Thompson and T & V Law to anyone dealing with such legal issues.
