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.

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 represented me in the hardest easiest divorce ever. He is a very detailed, tactful and diplomatic negotiator. He’s also a great litigator in court and aggressive to protect his clients. Ric is well versed in the science of people, he understands when to respond vs when to sit back. When the other party filed frivolous motions and requested hearings of the same he was a voice of reason for me. In those hearings he was as sharp as razor blade. I’ve seen him outshine two other highly rated attorneys through the 18 months that he represented me. He is well prepared! His legal advice is straight to the point and he sets reasonable expectations even when dealing with unreasonable parties. Everything he advised me he would do he did. He is as hands on as it gets and will prepare you for anything that is to come. You get what you pay for and Ric goes to work for you on day one. I highly recommend Mr. Woodward.
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.
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
Ric was a godsend in my divorce. It was a complicated and difficult process that Ric guided me through with compassion and experience. Ric helped me settle my divorce with always responding quickly, assuring me that the noise coming from opposing counsel was nothing to worry about. He expertly handled a hearing that resulting in a favorable judgment. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with a divorce. His expertise and professionalism is appreciated and provided an excellent outcome.
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!
Ric was extremely professional and knowledgeable handling my divorce. I would highly recommend.
