Empowering You to Succeed

The attorneys at The Woods Law Firm are nationally recognized and highly respected for their experience and success in achieving winning outcomes for our clients. Our principal has over 23 years direct experience in the courtroom, has conducted over 300 jury trials and represented thousands of clients in over two decades of practice. Our partners, of counsel and associate attorneys are authors and frequent guest speakers in the legal areas of criminal defense, personal injury and civil litigation and are frequently called upon for commentary by the media. We have collectively and consistently won millions of dollars for our clients and their families.

The attorneys at The Woods Law Firm have become a force in South Carolina legal circles for their innovative and pioneering use of collaborative legal teams to achieve the best results for their clients. The collaborative legal team process pulls the highest resources and winning trial lawyers from each practice area and uses nationally recognized expert witnesses in trials to get outstanding results in the courtroom. For example, in trials we have used international translators to decipher trade documents from China in an 18-wheeler container truck accident, forensic experts in ballistics from Chicago and New York in murder cases and plastic surgeons and facial reconstruction experts from Brazil and California to prove the extent of damages our client sustained in a massive car accident case. In short, we source globally for the best experts and act locally to do our greatest work in the best interests of every client, utilizing every resource in our arsenal to achieve freedom, justice and full compensation for our clients.
