For more than 23 years I served as a prosecutor in Placer County, where I have handled cases from petty theft and DUI's to Child Molestation, Domestic Violence, Rape and Murder. I was also the 'strikes' prosecutor prior to being promoted to a supervisor. For over eight years I was the Supervising Attorney for the Family Protection Unit, a specialty unit which handled sex offenses, murder, child abuse, human trafficking, domestic violence, elder abuse and child abduction, amongst other crimes.  However I was again promoted to become the Assistant District Attorney, where I supervised the supervisers, in additon to handling the administrative functions of the office.  This was done while I also continued to handle complex and serious cases, including a torture case, homicides and human trafficking.

Now I am using those 23 years of experience to work to defend and protect the rights of those accused of committing crimes.

Highly reputable attorney
I highly recommend Jeffrey Wood to represent you if you ever get in a situation where you need legal consultation and representation for your criminal proceedings. I had never been in situation where I needed an attorney, and when I found myself needing help, he was my life raft. I was very unfamiliar with the uncharted waters I was facing. I reached out to him (because he already came highly recommended) and was blessed with a listening ear, empathy, grace, sound information, and comfort. He advocated for me from the very beginning, and very quickly I realized he was an expert in his field. His extensive knowledge, background, and experience within the Placer County DA office proved to be very valuable for my defense. He gathered details from me, looked to my family and friends who provided him background information about my character, explored the case itself, and kept me informed throughout the whole process. There was never a point where I did not feel as though my situation was his highest priority, even though he likely was advocating for other defendants at the same time. This culminated in a successful outcome for me, and my family. Mr. Wood was truly a blessing to me. A mere "thank you" to him doesn't seem like enough for his work and professionalism, so I turned to this forum to recommend him to others. If you ever find yourself in a precarious situation, reach out to him. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Mr. Wood!!! You were a godsend!!!

Confident and Comforting at the same time
We were referred to Jeff by a mutual friend and I am so grateful for the referral. Jeff was not only professional and responsive, but he was also very personable and made me feel at ease. We are dealing with something for our teenage son and Jeff has provided our family with a sense of ease moving forward. I would highly recommend Jeff and his services to anyone.
