The best lawyer You could ask for
Lawyer Wood from the very start was affordable, attentive, and very pragmatic. Throughout every step of the way he explained his thought process, never leaving me in the dark about any of the processes to save my property. He’s also much more affordable compared to other bankruptcy firms which really helps while in this process. Great lawyer and even better work.

Best Lawyer
My family's odds were very bad regarding keeping our home, so we can sell and move after a messed up bankruptcy. Vincent took us although he was very busy and against all worldly odds won. I thank you, I will never forget you, you changed our lives. There are so many lawyers that seem not to care, but Vincent Wood cares about all the right things and is a wonderful attorney. He has been kind and explained everything to my family. We are Blessed to have an attorney like him. Thank you! Audrey and family

What would I done without you!!
I appreciate the matter-of-fact way Vince explained things to me. It was a new experience for me and I had heard conflicting information from several sources about how to proceed. I felt really understood when Vince responded and answered all my questions! I will be forever grateful for your services! I will recommend...

A Lawyer I can trust!
Vincent was there in a time were it seemed there was no way out and was able to get a verdict even better than I had ever hoped. I hope I never need a lawyer again but it feels great to know I have a lawyer I can trust and know will do whatever it takes to have his job done to the interest of his clients!

Highly Professional!
As a professional of 5 years in the customer service field I have to say that in over 6 phone conversations back and forth this was a 100% amazing experience. I had no idea what I was talking about and both the receptionist and then the attorney I spoke with explained the basics of the process to me so clearly that even my family could understand it!

Highly Recommend
After having some personal medical issues, I found myself in a financial hardship that put my family in jeopardy of losing our house. To avoid foreclosure, I knew I had to file for Chapter 13th Bankruptcy. I started working with a Law Firm that wasn’t very responsive and I was dissatisfied with their service. So I sought out the Law Offices of E. Vincent Wood. After my initial phone consult, I knew I wanted to work with him. Vince is very professional, knowledgeable, kind, and compassionate. His staff is very courteous and responsive, providing me with answers to all my questions. Vince walked me through every step and made sure that I understood the process. Even at the dreaded court hearing, Vince made me feel very comfortable and reassured me that everything would work out fine. And yes, we prevailed. Vince was able to help save my home and set up a payment plan that is manageable. Thank you Vince, for making a tough situation go so smoothly. Thank you for your integrity, and excellence! I would highly recommend Vince and his team to anyone!

Thank you!
Vincent Woods assisted us in a very lengthy, emotional and precarious case. We really appreciate the way we were treated and informed over the very many months. He was always interested in our story, and wellbeing. He was also professional and hopeful throughout the entire period. Thanks a lot!

Outstanding Experience!
I want to thank you for your excellent representation in my credit card case. You relieved the stress of the constant battering of calls and mail sent to me by a company to pay on an old debt that was not owned. I did not have to attend one court hearing and my case was resolved. Thanks Vincent!

Peace of mind!
My husband, and I could not be more pleased with the services provided by Vince Wood. We were about to leave the country on a long vacation and realized that we had absolutely nothing in place. It was time to put our affairs in order and attain peace of mind. Vince was attentive and listened to our concerns. He was very professional, organized, and answered all our questions. Vince was very thorough in preparing our estate plan documents before our trip departure. Vince went out of his way to be available and always returned our calls. We would recommend him to anyone with estate planning needs.
