Litigation is a scary thing… but KNOWLEDGE is POWER over fear! I provide knowledge, based on MORE THAN 29 YEARS of experience in family law matters, including divorce, time sharing, alimony and/or child support. My experience includes handling cases from beginning to end for hundreds of individuals that experienced problems just like YOURS.

If a fight is necessary, you have one best chance to present your case to a judge.  You need an experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive lawyer to guide you through the case and to fight for your rights.

However, not every case involves a courtroom battle.  Cases often settle before seeing a judge.  Cases often settle in mediation.  In those matters, you need an attorney that will explain to you the value of settling your case, and to help you evaluate when a settlement offer is a good one or a bad one for you.

  • review rating 5  I came to Mr. Woodward at the last minute and needed some good representation in my Up and coming Divorce case that was scheduled 2 weeks before I met him. Although it was an unfortunate situation for me going through my divorce, Ric was able to break a few things down and in the process gave me the confidence I needed to proceed in what I felt was right in my situation. He is very professional and answered every question I had for him, he made me feel comfortable and it felt like I have known him for years as a friend, not just my lawyer. Overall I was very pleased with the outcome of my case and would recommend Mr. Woodward to anyone I know who might be going through the same unfortunate situation I was in. Thank You Mr. Woodward.

  • review rating 5  I have nothing but positive things to say about Eric Woodward. In most cases when you need an attorney things are not good. In my case, I was dealing with my wife who left me, took my kids out of state to Florida and then filed charges of domestic violence and child abuse against me. I was naturally very frightened for the fate of my relationship with my children and my freedoms. I had to search online for a lawyer since I do not live in Florida. I contacted a few offices after hours. Mr. Woodward replied the very next day. He spent time discussing my case with me and explored the possibilities to avoid me having to travel to Florida. We exchanged emails and a few phone calls, all before even agreeing to any form of payment. I did have to go to Florida and met with Eric the day before court. Two friends/ witnesses were with me and they both felt very confident. Being the accused, I was still worried. At court the next day, I got to see Eric in action. He was very low key, unassuming and professional. He was firm with his requests and objections. Mr. Woodward does know the law and how things work. In the end, my case was dismissed. I would comfortably recommend Eric Woodward to anyone in need of a professional attorney. It is very likely that i will require his assistance in the future as my former wife and children now reside in Florida. I will not hesitate to call Eric again.

  • review rating 5  Mr. Woodward represented me in my divorce. He was always available when I had questions through phone or email.The retainer was reasonable and what I really liked is that he sent me a detailed itemized bill each month. This went through mediation and went very smoothly. He thoroughly reviewed all of my financial documents for completeness and accuracy. Hopefully I Never have to do this again but if I do, I would definitely Use Mr. Woodward.

  • review rating 5  Ric represented me through mediation and my divorce settlement agreement in 2018. We achieved a great outcome. After one year, my ex was not following the agreement. He helped me to file a motion of enforcement and represented me both as the petitioner in my motion and as a respondent to an additional motion filed by my ex. The outcome was as good as it could possibly be. He is responsive, honest and fair in his pricing. He provides detailed monthly accounting and he truly cares. He will give you honest and straight forward advice and his experience speaks volumes. He is not an emotionally driven attorney, he saves you time and money by arguing when it matters and not when it doesn’t despite the tactics of other attorneys. I highly recommend him for all your family law needs. I am so grateful.
