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.

I had a difficult divorce case with a foreign national. Ric was able to get me out rather quickly and inexpensively.
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.
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.
Hired Rick when my wife decided to divorce me and I was lost. He gave me some direction into what was going on and helped me through a stressful hard time. Thank You Ric, Bruce
Ric uses his years of service and experience to deliver the highest quality of attention, organization and knowledge to each case. He made me feel as if he was fighting for his own family and children as he stood up for my rights as a father. He did this showcasing the utmost level of professionalism and walking in integrity, though I once believed to be impossible if I was to ever deal with an attorney. Ric made sure to maximize the use my finances and I never felt in the dark or not communicated with. Divorce is definitely an unfortunate outcome, but if you have to go through what I did, I strongly recommend giving his office a call.
Great attorney who puts his client first! Mr. Woodward was recommended by a friend and I am not only grateful for the recommendation but also to have had him on my side. He’s a great attorney who cares about his clients. Would highly recommend him if you are in search of an attorney.
Ric was a great help with my divorce and explained what was taking place and reassured me thru the whole process. I felt very comfortable with him and will use him in the future for any of my legal needs
This office is awesome! I found this law office from a personal recommendation and do NOT regret coming to Mr. Woodward! He was very professional and handled all of my comments and concerns in a calm and experienced manner. He was able to resolve my case in a very efficient manner. Not to mention his office is clean, tidy, and organized for efficiency. If you're looking for a lawyer who cares about YOU, Ric is the BEST!
Mr. Woodward came highly recommended and I was very impressed with his knowledge, compassionate demeanor , and professionalism. He is well respected by fellow attorneys and judges. I hired Ric to handle a difficult child custody/child support case for my son, in which, there was never a marriage. The state of Florida has complicated laws when concerning child custody concerns when individuals are not married. Mr. Woodward not only put my son at ease, he was also able to do that for my grandchild's mother. Ric was able to bring this case to a conclusion that was in the best interest of all parties involved. If you are looking for an honest, fairly priced attorney, Ric Woodward is the man for you.
I recently hired Ric Woodward to represent me in a child custody and child support case. I was very pleased with how prompt he was with returning my calls and emails throughout the whole case. He stayed on top of every thing that needed to be done and fought very hard for what I deserved. He was very knowledgeable with all questions I had throughout the whole case. He is an attorney who has his clients best interest at heart and isn’t just trying to rack your monthly bill up. I was more then happy with the outcome of the case and know 100% I couldn’t have gotten the outcome without his help. I met with three other attorneys prior to him and he was the most honest one up front. He didn’t ever give me false hope. He is very reasonably priced and good at what he does. Highly recommended for a great honest attorney because we all know honesty is hard to find in that field!
Although not able to help me directly due to my case being in another state…. I was contacted immediately and given the best advice that I could get. Honest and straightforward. Thank you sir.
