While Woody is focused on helping his clients work toward their goals, he recognizes that just because you can do something does not mean you should.  He works to gain a fuller understanding of what the client’s goals and objectives are and then takes those actions that will assist in reaching those goals and objectives.  Sometimes the solution lies where you least expect it.

Admitted to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia since 1987, Woody has diverse and extensive litigation  experience. He has handled and tried litigation matters in state and federal courts throughout Virginia as well as in numerous other states.  He has handled multimillion-dollar suits ranging from “bad faith,” defamation, Lanham Act, nursing home and assisted living facility, and products liability matters, to toxic tort suits. He has also handled multiple consumer class actions, attorney general investigations, shareholder derivative actions, representation and warranty claims, and business tort claims.

Legal project management principles are a great tool in increasing the efficiency of case management and maximizing the predictability of litigation expenses.  Woody applies these principles to case analysis and strategy, staffing, information management and budgeting.
